Poured from a 12oz bottle into an US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, strong citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong caramel and citrus. Then a strong grassy hops presence comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a very nice IPA to drink for a while.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Dogfish Head pint glass.

The color is a very hazy orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice thin lacing left on the glass.

The smell is a bit dank with done wet hop flavor here. Pine needle aroma that smells a bit like being the forest after it rains. There is a resiny aroma that seems a bit like grapefruit but also leans to tangerine in the nose,

The taste of this beer is of wet hoppy bitterness with a grapefruit flavor that is juicy and is a bit like Rudy red juice. There is a dryness that comes out there that is bready and brings thought of needing some butter before bitterness washes forward and reality sets back in. There is a slight lemon murang pie flavor that goes out at the back corners at the end behind the bitterness that washes some of the sitting bitterness off and contributes to a really great aftertaste,

The feel if this beer is medium bodied and seems to want to balance well on the palette. There is a great drinkable beer here that gives the bitterness like a great IPA but then washes away done of the lingering effects that might have been a little coarse. Thumbs up.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

L - This beer pours amber with golden highlights. It is crystal clear and topped with an inch of beige head that has some staying power.

S - There is some citrus with a lot of pine.

T - The taste has a little citrus starting out. Bitter grapefruit is replaced with a biter pine finish. There is a lingering bitter aftertaste.

F - Medium

O - I enjoy these single hop IPA's. It is a great tool in learning what each hop variety brings to a beer. Cascade seems to be more pine than I like in my beer. It is a good beer but not suited to my palate.
