Bottle into tulip, probably a bit older than it ought to be. Cloudy dark, golden brown. Minimal white head. Grapefruit, some floral notes, slightly resinous. Some honey. Lightly bitter, some sweetness in the depth. Longish finish, slightly chewy, quite a bit of acidity. Good.

Purchased at the Walgreens at the corner of Harrison and Boudinot Avenues - Well, what can I say? This is a middling American pale ale... miles above Bud or the other massmarket lagers, but what isnt? Feh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle bought outside of Chicago. Pours a hazy, bright orange with a thin head that fades slowly, leaving a lace on the top of the beer. Aroma is of mostly citrus, grainy malt, and moderate grassy hops. Some fruitiness is apparent and more caramel sweetness comes out as the beer warms. Flavor is light up front with hint of citrus, moderate bitterness, and faint hops. A little caramel sweetness is present and lingers and then fades out toward the very end. The bitterness that you get right up front lingers throughout the flavor as well and stays around in the aftertaste briefly. The body is medium but not as sweet as you might expect. Carbonation is light and pretty soft. Overall, this is a fine beer. It is not as malty as I have heard it is but still a well-balanced beer and leans a touch toward the hoppy side. Definitely not your big, west coast pale ale but still an easy-drinking and very tasty beer.

Nice piney aroma with slight citrus notes. A refreshing pale ale with a nice mouthful of hops. Finishes with bitter hoppiness. Overall a pretty good beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours a slightly cloudy gold color with a nice off white head. Aroma of pine and sweet citrus hops. Taste is similar with a hint of grass/ hay. Just the right amount of bitterness for the style. Great pale ale! And one of my stand-bys.
