Somewhat weak for an IPA, but smooth and enjoyable. At 2.50 a pint, I could not resist.

On tap, pours a clear amber with a thin white head, aroma is more malty and biscuits than anything, not a lot of hops present, the flavor is much of the same, good amount of caramel and sweetness with a hint of hops in the finish, kind of just meh.

They say it's very sessionable and that's true....it doesn't pack much of a punch. It's a rather weak pale ale-the hoppyness is largely lacking. Not a bad beer, just not much to it.

On tap in Chicago. Golden honey color with slight white head. Some citrus and pine nose. Flavor is balanced, nicely sweet and barely hoppy. Perfect carbonation and medium mouthfeel. This is a very easy drinker. Worth drinking again.

Looks, smells and tastes like a mediocre beer. More domestic lager than "pale ale". Likely good with wings

Paid $2.00 for a 6 oz. half pint at Hopleaf. Color is a mostly clear orange pale color, (hard to tell with the low lighting) Nose is a good amount of floral hops with touches of citrus. The flavor is some bready malt with subtle citrus and a moderate level of floral hops in the finish. It also shows a sugary sweetness. It reminds me of a classic example of an APA that craft brewers made before the hop explosion. The hop flavors are there just not over the top with bitterness on the low side. I enjoyed this and it is a nice session brew you could crush large amounts of.

gold pale. 1 finger creamy head. Big American hops and rose petals on the nose. A tongue party. Okay like the mouthfeel and such is biting and mineral like. Lightly bittered, orange peel and pine cones. Nice sweetness. Has a champagne like carbonation. Pineapple as well

on tap at a Cubs themed bar in O hare airport, giving it bonus points for that even though you take the Red Line to Cubs I’m giving them credit on this one, almost missed my flight soaking in all the wonderous Cubbies memorabilia. Solid beer hoppy and sweet. Would drink again

Pours golden yellow. Smell is citrus hops, light hops. Taste follows ending dry. Light plus body average.
