The latest seasonal release from Cascade Lakes is a smooth-drinking pale ale that will temporarily replace the Pine Marten Pale Ale. Soon available in six packs, Project X is a classic Northwest pale, that uses a blend of two-row, crisp, Munich and cara grains to create a well-rounded beer that puts as much emphasis on its malt profile as it does on hops. Weighing in at just 41 IBU's, this beer won't be confused with a Northwest IPA. But that's the point. The result is a mellow spring ale that won't sabotage your palate, or your afternoon at the mountain, in the same way that some of the high-gravity beers have a tendency to do.
