The best I can go on this is not too bad... It's like entry level pale ale here..nothing is bright about it as is described. Dull hop front with slight hop aroma and taste...the maltiness comes through more than all else ... It's fine just doesn't hold up when you have sooo many other rock star pales and iPas in Chicago ( half acres daisy cutter...Piece the weight...etc etc etc....) I'll pass next time unless I'm in a pinch... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Harry Carayís in Chicago. The pour is a darker gold, with a big white head that falls down leaving a nice soapy lace. The clarity is there, even though the color is a little dark. The aroma is plain. There is a lot of malt detectable right up front. There is a strong grassiness that comes in before the hop presents itself. Itís light and crisp, but easily overshadowed. The flavor is a little better, but much of the same. There is a light bitterness up front, but then it gets soft. There is a little juiciness and a light sweetness. The malts are definitely the show here. I wish there was more bitter hop to it. That being said, itís incredibly easy to drink. The mouth feel is a little syrupy, but overall itís light and crisp. There is a lift carbonation and a lingeringly bready, malty aftertaste. Not too bad

Hop on board, the label says. Dry, fruity, complex. It doesnít really connect but it does impress. Clear, shiny, bold pour with a decent head. Toasty in the nose with a bit of unpleasantness. The rough finish meddles with a good effort. A misfire for an APA, but good for a lager.

commonmac (954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Tap pour into bumped pint glass at New Bohemia Uptown. Golden and heavily filtered with a healthy amount of white head. Nose is sweeter than anticipated with bubblegum coming through and some mild citrus. Taste actually has some banana mixing with traditional pale ale citrus and pine elements. Taste is overall quite simple and unimpressive. Finish is abrupt with a little lingering bitterness from the hops. This feels like Goose Island trying to appease a mass audience with a basic pale ale. Very boring effort. Take an Uber instead.

Decent middle of the road pale ale. It has a fruity flavor but an odd aftertaste.

Pours a clear copper with a medium fluffy white head. The aroma is bready and some ripe fruit. Flavor is more of the same.

APPEARANCE- Golden color and very clear. The white foamy head is fed continuously with effervescent bubbles. Itís quite a treat to watch. NOSE- very light, even for a pale ale. No hop, slight typical ale scent. FLAVOR- also extremely light even for a pale ale.

shrubber85 (9997) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2016
Bottle. Orange biscuit malt and metallic orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Mildly sweet orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Body a bit light. Nothing bad but pretty underwhelming - a very basic APA.
