This is a nice refreshing APA. Clean, sort of acidic hop bitterness. Full cascade flavor without any intense, distracting bitterness. Finishing clean with some ambery crystal malt. Looks nice- very orange, attractive looking APA. I'd say the cascade pine flavors reduce the drinkability a little bit. This is a good beer for every season- in winter the pine makes you think of forests etc. It's light enough for a spring beer, drinkable enough for a summer beer, and the great balance and malt character would be great in fall. Definitely an interesting offering.

This is another beer that surprised me from Ellicottville. I wasn't expected much (it was the last beer on their board that day), but it is a home run.

I like Pale Ale's and this one didn't try and be too crazy which some IPA makers try and do. Very smooth finish. You could drink this one all day.

The beer pours a nice gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a well balanced scent of pale malts and hops. It's nothing flashy, just a solid recipe. The taste is good as well. It has an easy drinking pale malt flavor that is complimented nicely with a mild hop finish. Again, just a true to style APA. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a very good beer. It's a fine session beer for all seasons.

Amber gold with a fluffy one finger head. Good retention,and excellent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, and pine. Body is light,but not watery,with some carbionation. Taste is smooth,nicely hopped,but with a sweet balance that will make you want more than one!

Had this offering at the EBC-West in Fredonia,NY.Poured from the tap a nice clear copper with a tight well sustained white head that reallynever left,nice cascade hop aromas of pine and citrus over top of caramel biscuit malt.Very well balanced pale leaning on its cascade presence,starts out lightly sweet and biscuity but the hops take over midway into a nice finish.Was suprised to see this weighing in at 6.0% alc it down with real ease,a fine offering.
