Tortman18 (188) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Pours a crisp golden with a finger of frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing and carbonation. Nose is hoppy and citrusy with some sweetness. There is some malt present that is blended with an interesting pineapple/alcohol mix. Mouth is very bitter, but bland. Not a lot of hops at all. Some grain and malt with a stale, salty like taste. The citrus is no where to be found. Not much of a pale ale.

Bottle. Pours a light straw color. Small white head. Some lacing. Grainy aroma. Clean and dry with some mild bitter. I was intrigued by this when I picked it up as a single. Then I realized it wasn’t even brewed in Chicago. Not a terrible beer at all, just very uneventful.

Mittenator (1304) - Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle. Pale yellow. Sour, citrus and hay. A little malty and thicker than I thought.

blackflag321 (481) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle pour to shaker. Light straw yellow. Nothing wrong with it, but flavor lacked any amount of malt, hops, or anything distinct.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2013
12oz bottle from Srevens Point, d’oh!!!!! Sweet and cheap, with a little more soapy one dimensional hops. Why on Earth would anyone contract brew with Stevens Point? Absolutely loses points for being called Chicago Brewing Company and not even brewing in the state. Buttery bullshit factory extract undertones. I am seriously pissed I bought a six pack of this.

Lager Glass-Pours an orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops, orange, and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more hops, sweetness fills the mouth with citrus on the back end. This medium bodied brew is very enjoyable

Late December, 2012. 12oz bottle from HyVee Milan, I believe. I think I drank this in a hot tub. Eh. Fizzy golden pour with a mediocre head that fades. Faint citrus in the aroma with biscuit and caramel. The flavor is unsurprisingly much the same - faint hops with dominating biscuity malt. Eh.

Excellent pale ale. Has a distinct taste of orange and a nice amount of hops. Would get again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and some caramel. Taste is light bitter. Orange citrus and some caramel. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall, not bad. I would drink it again, but not seek it out.
