Cascade Lakes Cyclops IPA

The Cascade Lakes Brewing Company is in Redmond, Oregon.

Cyclops is "the one Eye P.A."  It is 6.9% ABV and pours a slightly hazy orange copper in color.  There is a short creamy and foamy head, that is off-white to light brown in color.  The aroma is sweetly and aromatically floral and grassy, citrus fruits and golden grains.  I am intrigued by the aroma and can't wait to taste this.  The taste follows the aroma, this drinks like a dry-hopped lager or a hop forward American pale ale.  The finish is intensely bitter and dry, yet it drinks light and refreshing.  It is hard to believe this is 6.9% ABV.  Very nice.
