Appearance: Light copper/amber with white head persisting. Clear
Aroma: Light cascade -like aroma, citris/earthy
Flavor: Creamy with caramel notes, follwed by bitter aftertaste & dry finish
Overall: Great balance & complexity, as it starts sweet with caramel notes and is followed with a hoppy flavor, aroma, bitterness. Great version of an american west coast pale ale. Balanced and tasty enough that you can't taste the alcohol (6.5% abv).
