3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pint after drinking at FoBAB 2013 all night. Pours copper gold. Nose some pine, floral hops. Taste similar to nose, with sweetness early, then hop and floral. Average bitter finish. That day was a welcome change from all the bourbon barreled beers.

From tap. Nice orange in glass. Nose is citrus and some malts. Tater is similar. Much more complex than 312. Highly drinkable.

A- My dad and I both ordered this brew at the chicago ohare airport. Mine was a cloudy orange hue with little to no head. His was also orangey but completely clear with a wispy off white head so ... you decide.
S- Lightly bready with very slight hop notes.
T- Bready with very slight hints of pine.
M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation.
D- This was a very mediocre brew and at 9 dollars a pour (granted it was the airport), I expect much more.

On draft at Glascott’s Saloon in Lincoln Park, Chicago. Pale honey complexion. Taste is light citrus hops balanced with malt and thin palate. A great session beer!

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.
