COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

From notes. 12oz can from Old Chicago poured into a shaker. Pours a crystal clear, light orange color. Not much head but what is there is bright white. Aroma is all hops. Spruce and resin. Taste is medium bitter. It sort of tastes the way pine needles smell. Medium bodied with a distinctly oily texture. Overall, this one is pretty good. I would buy it again if I ever found it locally.

Cavie (3844) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a white fizzy head. Aroma is sweet sugar, easy floral hops and light malts. Flavor is dry, peanutty, light earthy hops, and malts. Not very hoppy but pretty flavorful.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Pours an amber gold with a thin but lasting crown of off white foam. Nose is hops. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is malt on the front end with mostly hops on the finish, not overly bitter. A well brewed pale ale that accompanies smoked turkey or smoke salmon very well.

dutch23mp (284) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2011
presents well poured in a shaker with a decent white head. Not much aroma to this puppy. The hoppy taste really is refreshing and has earthly feel on the palate a good beer.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Can. Pours a light pale golden with a small white head. Aroma...smells like itís a bit older. Sweet and caramely with every little hops presence, and what is there is a touch piney and very dumbed down to the sweet candy. Flavor is a touch hoppier but only in the lightly bitter finish. Still mostly malty candy caramel and toffee. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Bleh, this isnít tasting great

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2010
12 oz can. Pours a hazy a hazy gold with with medium white head. Aromas of citrus and tea; flavor is the same. Not bad for the price.

This beer had the makings of a pale ale, but I was a little disappointed with the overall taste. It is missing something.

dekester1 (325) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Poured a nice gold with a light fruity aroma. Taste was of malt and citrus with a mid to strong hop finish. Not a bad pale ale - actually very decent.

madvike (2907) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2010
On tap at the brewery - Deep amber pour with a big white foamy head. Flowery and lightly tropical fruity hops on the nose, with light, caramel malt in the background. Tastes sweet and fruity, with light lemon and a bit of grassy hops on the finish. A bit flat, however. Medium-bodied and slick in the mouth. Smelled good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2010
probably the lightest most sessionable apa I ever had. light pine hops and light malt in both the aroma and flavor. flavor is a littile stronger in the aroma but kind of a watery body.
