3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4 oz. taster at Atlas. Coppery amber color, with just a ring of foam that was like that when they first poured, before I got to the two lighter beers in this taster. Clear and present APA hop smell from the start. Taste is fully formed American hops that are overwhelming the malts with dry hoppiness, big on pine resin. The minimal alcohol note lets that hoppiness really push through.

Draught@Atlas Brewing Company, Chicago. Slightly cloudy golden color, lasting white head. Bright, hoppy aroma. Crisp, hoppy flavor with citric notes. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice balance, good beer.

At the brewpub. Hoppiness bordering on an IPA a little unbalanced needed a bit more malt. Overall pretty decent and flavorful. I wasn’t getting the soapiness others were. Serving: Tap

Aroma here is very fine... Citrus up front in the nose... Soapy taste though after that... Not bitter and go better as I went but those soapy taste was a the thing that stood in the way of this beer

Very nice brew here. Easy to put down, light hoppiness, but enough to keep it interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber body with a small, persistent head. The aroma is mostly citrusy hops, with some faint caramel malt. The flavor is similar, leaning more toward the hops. Dry finish, but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). My first stop in saw 10 drafts. This was one. Pours a darker golden more amber hue, firm haze and a richer dark body for the color. Some dulled glow on the edges and bottom. A frothy whitish head laces ok overall, some nice lacing, sticks around as a mellow layer. Aromas are lemony and floral hops, a moderate strength with a touch of bready dough, grass. Simple yet balanced. Lemons and soap at times, florals, dough. Initial is firmly bitter, soap and florals grow on the palate up front, a good bitterness, dry and soapy. Some bready malts, grass and weeds. Earth, some lemon but further back. A nice dryness, but tamed flavors. Touch of lotion, more lemon and soap. Middle ios mellow bready malts a touch of straw, grainy but more dry. The body is mellow, drinkable if a bit heavier than expected. Hops are sufficient, dry, if a bit nondescript. A solid brewpub Pale for Chicago. Albeit, lacking oomph.

On tap at CBF. Pours cloudy amber with a small beigish head leaving lacing. Aroma is medium malty hoppy caramel cat piss and grapefruits. Flavor is slightly acidy malty hints of caramel and bitter. Finishes bitter malty. A bit too bitter which kills the other flavors.
