Pale copper colour, large off-white head. Mediocre retention, no lace. Mild grapefruit and floral aromatics. Light toasty malt character, very faint citrus flavour in the finish. Low bitterness that still comes across harsh on the palate. Light-bodied with restrained carbonation. Feels thin and a little watery, especially when taken in concert with it's anemic flavour. Where the Hallertau Hop Ale at least manages to deliver an easily perceived hop character, this Cascade Hop version almost completely fails.

I actually had fairly high expectations for this one and I don't really know why in hindsight.

The bitterness is low for the style but, more importantly, there was next to no aroma and very little in terms of flavour profile from the hops. I wouldn't have been able to guess that this was a cascade hop IPA. There was a very light piney flavour and not much else. No grapefruit at all. Just a bland, somewhat stale tasting bitterness.

The beer pours a golden-red colour with a very thin tan coloured ring for a cap. There is definitely the citrusy notes of the cascade hops, as well as some weak caramel notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour doesn't live up to the aroma. Some weak hoppy grapefruit notes mixed in with the infamous dishsoap notes. Better than their flagship IPA, but still 'crafty' as opposed to 'craft'

Can: Poured a light clear amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light citrus hops with non-descript caramel malt backbone. Taste is also dominated by light citrus hoppy notes with some medium sweet caramel malt notes. Body is lighter then average with good carbonation. This one is definitely lacking character.
