3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle from Keg Liquors. Really nice nose. Well rounded and hopped but different from other session ales because of that sugar bit that is left in your moth. Very tasty and I think I see why this brewery is getting attention. I want more from them.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft on tap at Nrothdown Cafe (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazed golden amber hue, dulled glow overall, a touch of golden orange at times in certain light. Frothy whitish head atop is a firm layer, sticks around as a decent film, laces ok. Aromas are citrusy and vibrant, lots of lemon citrus and rind meet some gentle oat, bready malt and straw. A faint kiss of sweetness meets grapefruit, touches of florals and earth. A bit soapy and citrusy, nice. Initial is lighter end of the fold, bold citrus and gentle tropical fruit hops hit just right. Nice bitter elements hit the palate, a firm hopping really does wonders, fresh and juicy. Touches of bread, gentle oat and straw. Middle shows that bit of lactose, hops still strong and citric with nice tropical fruit, touches of soap. Oat and lactose element gives it’s full effect into the backend, a weird but dry element, sweetness mingle together. Earthy, a bit grainy. The hop element tapers as we flow back here. Touches of grapefruit juice, faint kiwi, earthy florals and bready malts. Pretty fresh, hop element is fairly vvibrant and on point. The lactose is a bit squeky but definitely shows. Touches of oat, bread are lighter. Quite drinkable. Nice, fresh, tasty stuff. Front end and middle are where this definitely shines but overall it’s a pretty damn well hopped Pale with some interesting malt and additives that give some complexity into the backend.

Crown Brew Fest 2014: Hazy golden, nice hop esters and moderate bitterness, smooth mouth feel. Very sessionable but I like Lake Street Express a tad more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had it in tap at Northdown Cafe& Taproom. Pours a cloudy orange hue, with a thin white head. It has a very soft sweet citrus aroma and an equally pleasantly smooth hop taste.
