Appearance: this is a burnt orange, slightly hazy, very effervescent brew. The head is a sparkling rocky light tan that breaks down fairly easily, but remains very rocky. Not a terribly tight head to this beer.
Aroma: The aroma starts off sweet and malty and is then met by a very fresh and floral cascade aroma that is easy to identify. Hidden in the background there is a slight tutti-frutti type of aroma.
Mouth Feel: But this beer has a very full mouth feel to it and the effervescence adds a creamy texture.
Flavor: The first sensation of flavor is of the malt, well roasted, rather toasty. When the hops arrive, they are underwhelming, and I can not find the characteristic grapefruit flavor of cascade hop.
Finish: The finish to this ale is very quick. There is a lingering hop essence that is neither bitter nor floral.
