novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Thin in color around the edges of the pint glass with a deeper almost amber color in the center. A thick, foamy white head is the crown. A nice citrus and toasted malt balance out this ale.

chinchill (4269) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2016
12 oz bottle with a bottling date of 30 June 2016, served in a lager glass in Sept. 2016. Orangish-amber body is clear; plenty of carbonation bubbles rising to a moderate size, off-white head that has very good retention. Patterned lacing. Aroma: mild but surprisingly complex. Hops.with fruity and herbal notes in balance with bready malts. Flavor: a bit more hoppy than malty. Good balance. Ample flavor for style. Feel: near medium body; medium-high carbonation. Overall: a solid, above average APA.

BeerViking (4141) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Tap at the Rake, golden-amber with an ever so faint haze and a thick fine foam. Light biscuit and peach nose, fruity and softly bitter, turning dry and sweetly grassy, then a dry-sweet bitter finish..

gephross100 (312) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Bottle thanks to Jody. Pours a light gold color. Thing blanket of white head on top. Little to nose hops. Dry finish. This beer is light aqueous and crushable. But it almost offensive with how little it leaves you with flavor wise.

cheap (5307) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Bottle. Initial taste is veggie hops. Clear and pale. Thin head. Off hop aroma. Taste borders on IPA. Better than IPA co2. However, that IPA impact really gets astringently in your face on the finish. Yes, a very heady pale ale fer sure.

DenverLogan (1098) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2016
From a bottle into a Rodenbach Grand Cru glass. Pours gold with modest head and lace. Aroma is minimal and of subtle malt and grains. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, amber malt, minerals, straw hops, caramel, slight citrus zest, slight white pepper, white grapefruit rind. Overall rich, flavorful, thirst quenching.

MrTipple (3586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2016
Grain and cereal malts, light bread, caramel. Clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Intense grain and bread malts, caramel, bitterness coming up, dry finish, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Nice APA, well balanced, glad to see a decent cask offering from GI. Cask at the brewery tap room, Chicago.

Shot (451) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours gold with a huge white head that dissipates to a filmy head. Fairly good cling. Aromas of roasted malt and citrus. Flavors are buttered corn, black pepper, roasted malt, bitter citrus, oak and dry grass. Crisp and dry. Peppery hop finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Interesting beer. Not bad.

jbruner (3996) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with thin bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of faint biscuit malt and caramel with an underlying pine hop note. Taste follows, clean and crisp, mild hop, mostly malt, a bit aggressive for a pale. Meh.
