A- Pours a orange-golden with a nice two finger near white head. Decent retention and a fair amount of lacing clings to the glass.
S- Smell is citrus, floral, and biscuit. Remembering that, despite the name, I am grading this as an APA, it does have a reasonably assertive hop aroma.
T- Biscuity sweetness hits the tongue, but the flash of orange and floral hops (faint hint of pineapple), asserts itself without falling into unbalanced territory.
M- The body and carbonation are fine and typical of style, maybe a bit fuller in the body than average. I would say the finish was rather abrupt.
O- It is a good beer and good when viewed as an APA. Worth finding.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours slightly hazed golden with a thin off-white head that slowly becomes wispy, leaving some strands of lacing.

The smell is of citrus with cracker-like bread in the back.

The taste is of bitter tea-like herbs and citrus fruits - grapefruit and pineapple most notably. A cracker-like pale malt is in the background, with a growing sweetness that balances the bitterness, while allowing the Cascade hop flavor forward.

It has medium carbonation with a medium body. It has some chewiness and a long finish.

This is a solid example of an American Pale Ale that uses Cascade hops! Very enjoyable and easy to drink!
