Fermenting: 06/09/2005 Bottled: 12/09/2005
The most notable thing about this beer is the delicious taste and smell — unlike any other beer. It is mostly due to the liberal use of cascade hops in the bittering, and flavouring stages of the brew.
Cascade hops are grown in Washington state, in the USA. They have a distinctive flavour with floral, spicy and slightly citric overtones.
Unfortunately this beer has quite a long lead time — about 2 weeks in the fermentor and 4 weeks in the bottle before it is ready for drinking. Does anyone have anything to celebrate in late October? Other than this fine beer, of course.
Tasting notes: Best beer in the catalog. 10/10
