One of my favorite easy-drinking beers. Nice sublte floral sweet hops aroma and flavor. Not a beer for contemplation, but Iíd be thrilled if my local sports bar had this on tap. (A football game is long and I donít want 4-5 pints of a big imperial IPA or the like.)

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2010 Good hop presence-floral, malt and citrus-very flavorful. Lots of Cascade hops and strong malt presence. Like a very well done EPA.

I bought this beer before going to my parents place to watch the Bengals play in their first playoff appearance in 15 years. They lost, making this beer the only enjoyable part of my day. 12oz bottle. Hoppy sweet flavor, long bitter finish. Nowhere near overpowering. Simply an enjoyable beer, pleasing for anytime.

Light orange, big head that dissipates quickly, hoppy-sweet aroma, nicely balanced pale ale, citrus and orchard fruit, long pleasantly bitter finish. Simple but enjoyable.

Bottle (12oz). Thanks to my friend Dave B for this one. Poured hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh juicy hops, mild malt. Taste follows aroma, with strong iced-tea-with-lemon and a hint of grain in there. Mouthfeel a bit creamy, acidic, need to be a little more carbonated. Definitely goes down easy, has a nice citrus mildly bitter linger.

Very spicy flavor for a beer - it has an acidic taste, but it goes down easily and tastes good.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2008 Re-rating. Had this at a Texas Road House Restaurant served way too cold. Pleasant malty and spicy flavors such as nutmeg. Light hops. An enjoyable beer.

Poured from bottle without any noteworthy charachteristics - clear, orange, lively cascading, and with very little head. Aromas of hops and something sweet - perhaps pineapple? Did not care for the way this beer felt in my mouth, not sure if oily is correct term. Flavor was decent with lightly bitter start and finish and moderately sweet middle. A decent beer.

I had this beer at Improv Olyimpic in downtown Chicago. I was suprised! It has a taste of spice in the mix; adding to itís overall semi-bitter quality. However, it wasnít too bitter-this well balanced beer makes living in Chicago worth it!
