Some Cascadian Dark...

Apparently the folk out there has decided to put some effort in making hoppy dark ales. I don't know if you call them stouts, but they tend to use the citrus Cascade hops, hence the name Cascadian Dark Ale.

Deschutes Hop in the Dark CDA

Huge tan head in my dimpled pint glass. Nose is a huge cascade citrus/flowery hop. Loving life. Taste is a big citrus that nearly overpowers the chocolate and coffee notes from the darker malts. Body is medium to full, with a grapefruit hop finish. I'm loving this thing. On the second sip the dark malt has a light caramel sweetness to it. Awesome. 4 Stars.
