Notes: True to its name, Cascade, Centennial, Crystal and Simcoe create a citrusy hop confluence that continuously embiggens with each drink. The embodiment of our brewing philosophy to “Never Give An Inch”.

Drinks like hoppy air owing to the nitrogenation.

A good, smooth IPA, but nothing to write home about. The texture is a little thin. Fairly complex, not too bitter, with a bold fruity/citrus smell I noticed right away, and a flavor to match. A step up from what Pyramid and Widmer Bros have to offer.

Has a nice copper color, a thin head but nice lacing. Smells nice but not very hoppy. Taste follows the nose and isn’t strong with the hops. It’s smooth as silk and drinks easily. It’s a good IPA. On tap at Ron’s Corner Tavern. Revisiting 5/26/2020 with a 500 ML bottle dated ??/??/19 illegible but It smells less hoppy and more like a can of fruit syrup. The taste is hoppy and slightly sweet. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy. Overall I think it's better than I originally thought and It's not unheard of that some IPA's age very well. I'd buy more.

Had it while watching Super Bowl 2018. It poured a somewhat hazy golden amber color with a moderate frothy white head, great retention, and plenty of sticky lacing.
The aroma is all about the fruit; peach, pineapple, grapefruit and orange. There is also a graham cracker sweetness.
Drinking this provided a good ole fashion hops fix in the West Coast style. It was moderate to slightly intensely bitter. The emphasis of the hops was a juicy combination of citrus( mainly grapefruit pith) and tropical fruit, along with pine. A muted seeetness is provided by the caramel malt and graham cracker.
Medium bodied and easy to drink. Despite the citrus zest and hints of juicy sweetness, the palate and finish are very dry and significantly better.
A solid no nonsense IPA that has quite the hops kick. I am intrigued enough by it to try again.

Cracked open enjoyed on Christmas Day 2016 along with a couple Snicker's (Rogue Double Chocolate Stout mixed with Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar). This is a solid IPA, very floral and not too bitter. I think I've been biased since being corrupted by the discovery of Mosaic hops. So I try not to slander IPA's without Mosaic like this one. I will get this again.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma fruity citrus, caramelized malts and piney hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering earthy hops bitterness come in. The malt character is hearty and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

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

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, while it’s not an extreme hop bomb, it’s balanced, flavorful and worth drinking for a long time.
