Not a very good one from Goose Island. Weak hop aroma and taste. Don't know what else to say to occupy the space. Don't order it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JMerritt (1844) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottled. Clear dark amber with a frothy, medium-sized head that is mostly diminishing. Spicy hop aroma with light pine cone and a bit of peach, but the nose is pretty subdued in intensity. Lightly fruity flavor, again some peach and a bit of cantaloupe, along with light metallics and a bit of soft leather. Not bad, but pretty pedestrian.

obxdude10 (2077) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2014
A decent APA, but nothing really special about it. The beer poured a light gold color with a small white head. The nose was spicy and flowery hops, with some bready, yeasty notes. The body was a little spritzy, maybe a little overcarbonated. The flavors are mostly hops, with dry, flowery and spicy hops. The profile was a little too light for my liking. Not really a whole lot going on here.

andyhwcinc (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at home after a sleepy work day. Also enjoyed while watching St Vincent at the Chicago Theatre. It tasted better yesterday, maybe it was fresher. Appearance is a darker amber with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly caramel malt and hops. Taste is ok, there are some off flavors I don't care for, mostly caramel malt and hops. Just a meh beer.

chinchill (2148) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2014
12 oz 2014 bottle. Pours medium amber with excellent clarity and a large, frothy head. Gobs of sticky lacing. Aroma: earthy/herbal/floral hops dominate. Too dank and earthy for me. Flavor: appropriately hoppy for style; mildly bitter; mainly herbal-floral rather than fruity. Feel: very good carbonation but overly thin body.

Meeeh not too impressed by it but didn't really expect much. Got it simply because of it's cost at only a couple dollars. It's not terrible, just nothing great at all.

Atom (1448) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2014
12oz bottle pours a clear orange/golden with a small white head. Smells macroish, grassy light hops dry malt. Taste is sweet, corn, light to non-existent hops, sweet malt. A step above a Bud, uninspired swill.

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford City. Appearance: finger white head, gold, clear, light-medium lacing. Aroma: wheat, citrus, light caramel and biscuits. Palate: light body, average carbonation, light bitter finish, medium crisp. Taste: light-medium sweet caramel and wheat that grows, then fades into crisp and lovely citrus hop bitterness. Overall, pretty enjoyable, good for drinking a few on a warm day, nice for drink-ability.
