On tap at the brewpub. Pours golden orange with white head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus and caramel malt. Flavor packs a good hop punch with citrus, caramel malt and some pine. Packs a pretty good hop punch for a pale ale. Would have loved to try it fresh. I am going to miss Matt.

Nose is earthy, astringent, and catty. Flavor is toast, carmel, fruit, and dirt. Mouthfeel is bitter and acidic. Medium to long finish. Definition of mediocrity.

This poured a nice orange color with a slightly off white head. Aroma was mainly of piney hops, lots and lots of them. Flavor was a little more subdued than the nose, but still contained lots of notes of pine and citrus with juast enough backbone for it to not be a crazy IPA. This to me seemed like shimkos younger brother.

Shared at DLD. Yellow pour with a white head. Malty and hoppy aroma. Some light fruits(apricot? mango?) Flavor is fizzy with malt, hops and fruit. Not bad, not amazing.

On tap at Flossmoor Station and served in a nonik. This poured a darker amber hue with a moderate haze and a small head of off-white foam. Light lacing. The aroma was dominated by hops. Strong notes of citrus and pine. Just a hint of caramel and light toast sneak in. The flavor was also heavy on the orange, pine, and grapefruit. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and had moderate carbonation. Decent session beer. Best of luck out in Oregon, Matt!

Draft at FSRB. Dark orange body, a bit of haze and a puffy pale ale head. Big smell of pine and orange rind from hops, plus a bit of grass and earth. Familiar PNW hoppy taste, with a citrus pucker, pine needles and a bit of Amaraillo burn, all the hop flavors that make us think of Matt. And wouldn’t you know, I’ve managed to get back out to FS on the night BEFORE they tap Bryan’s first specialty beer. Sorry, Bryan, I’ll have to inflict my opinions on you later.

Aroma of an IPA, citrusy american hops. Flavor of an IPA. Easily one of the best APA’s I’ve ever had.

hazy gold, medium white head, lacy. mild hoppiness in the nose, caramel, citrus...a touch too mild. flavor is more than the nose suggests, with bitter pine, touch of grapefruit, some caramel. medium body, very bitter finish - nice. overall, a very enjoyable ipa. sampled at the ’goodbye matt, hello bryan’ party.
