Clear gold with a nice white head. Hop dominated on the nose, strong citrus and pine. Similar in the mouth, lots of hops more of an APA+. Mouthfeel is quite thin, has a nice bitter dry finish. Certainly not a balanced beer, but if your in the mood for some bitterness have at it.

Clear golden color in the pint glass, topped with a low head. Spritzy on the tongue. Light body. More of an Extra Pale Ale.

Hoppy and quite bitter from the first sip. The resiny hop cone flavor is intense and sharp with the thin mouthfeel. Made with two-row malt, according to the brewer, "to let the hops shine through." Well, that they do. Cascade is the hop listed on the blackboard.

Quite quaffable, if you are warming up for some serious IPAs. This tastes to me like a junior IPA, all hops with barely a hint of malt. Beyond crisp. On tap at the brewpub.
