COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

Scipio (754) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle. Nice golden in color without to much head. Somewhat of a citrus aroma with hops. Flavor consists of citrus and perhaps pine, while it is not to hoppy. Nothing really negative to say, but nothing to special to speak of either.

pkbites (708) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2011
This site is so guilty of lacking a "value" rating that someone needs to be painfully punished. Strong hop & barley nose. The head leaves a nice lacing but otherwise dies quickly. Hearty bitterness on the palate. Surprisingly light mouth feel. Floral aftertaste bitter but very watery finish!!! No maltyness what-so-ever!!!!! This is good, but not worth the price they want for it. Not at all.

dwm1034 (697) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle from sampler rack at PW. Pours clear golden orange with thin white head. Mildly hoppy, floral nose. Initial taste isnít as bitter / hoppy as youíd usually expect from a typical pale. Not bad but far from outstanding...pleasant.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Nice grapefruit hops aroma, light honey malts. Medium clear amber, thin white head, no lace. Strong citrus hops on the front with honey sweetness, then finishes a little off; the hops are more bitter than aromatic in a way that doesnít work well with the biscuity malt finish. Medium body, frothy carbonation, prickly hops.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle. Super clean light copper with a small head. Nice carbonation with bubbles showering to the surface. Good looking pour. Aroma is light hops, pine, malt, grapefruit. Flavor is hops, bitter pine, citrus, malt. Finish is crisp, dry, and slightly bitter. I found it to be quite refreshing.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Sweetish citrus lemon aromas with a hint of wheat and dough. Golden yellow with a white foamy head. Flavor is slightly bitter with some hay, light hoppiness, some citrus and wheat. Palate is light and crisp. Duration is bitter with a mellowing breadlike final finish.

twindadplus2 (626) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Nice clear amber color with a good sized foamy head. Aroma of flowery hops, light citrus and malt. Nice floral hops backbone with a bit of bready malt to balance it out. Very nice.

On tap at the brewery. Good stuff, new brew from these guys. Nothin offensive, another good pale ale. Nothin really stood out, but it sure was tasty while sitting in the beer garten listnin to some live tunes!

S_Side_Smitty (572) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Light amber in color with a thin head. Aroma is a nice blend of pine & malts - maybe a little yeast too. Taste is a combination of citrus-like hops and a strong roasted malt flavor. I know Iím being vague, but itís hard to pinpoint exact flavors. Up front, youíre hit with the hops and that super rich "maltiness". The light bitterness slides in at the finish - itís almost sneaky. Not bad, but a little monotone for me.

The hops is underplayed. Malt standouts yet mercifully without chalkiness often associated with it. Session ale. If a hop head like me likes it has to have nice craft and flavor going for it.
