Stately orange-amber with solid 1/2" firm head. Mildly hoppy aroma with a decent hop flavor. This a delectable, easy drinking, well put together APA that reminds me somewhat of McMenamin’s Hammeread APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Rosemont location. Hazed amber orange color with a beige tiny bubbled head that laces in sheets. The aroma is light and only really becomes noticeable when it approaches fridge temp. Caramels, citrus, red apples and a little hop spice. Foremost caramel and toffee malt flavors that fade into a touch of bubblegum. Grassy slightly spicy hops surface on my tongue and linger long after the beer is gone. Fresh and a pretty decent pale ale.

Poured copper with touches of ruby. A one-finger tall, mostly white head produced decent lacing. The aroma was thin, spicy, floral hops and softer, sweet caramel malts. Hop heavy flavor. Too much dry, spicy hops. Failed to find balance. Average, watery, microbrew mouthfeel. Decent.
