3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep orange pour with solid off-white topper. Sweet nose. An earthy hop aroma with a dash of citrus zest. I’m down with the flavor of this guy. Not the huge, fruity, pine bomb that we’re all accustomed to these days, but a solid representation of the American ale. Citrusy and herbal with subtle caramel and resin notes. Well balanced and pleasantly bitter. Lively and smooth. Enjoyed this one a lot more than I anticipated.

Bottle from one of those variety packs. This one poured a light amber color with a foamy, medium sized white head. Aroma was notes of light pine, lots of hops. Flavor is more subdued, balanced. Refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lively carbonation, a big sudsy white head and a copper color; aroma is citrus hops with a little grassy note; taste is much the same with a very malty finish. Body is just a touch watery with good carbonation. I could do with a little more body but otherwise a very solid offering!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very attractive, clear radiant deep orange amber with frothy white head. An aroma that leaps out of the glass. Tons of flavor as well.l Loaded with tropical fruits. Followed by caramel and toasty malts. A little spicy. Finish gives way to grassy and herbal hops. Moderate bitterness. Starts as sweet but finds great balance. Finishes satisfyingly dry. I feel like if this was a limited small batch brew from a popular small brewery this would be getting significantly higher scores. This is very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet, caramel aroma. A little heavier than expected but still fairly crisp. Hoppy, citrus. Fairly good balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear bronze/ orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer.

Bottle. Drank this over at my folks house for the Old Man’s 68th birthday (Happy birthday, Pop!). Yeah, so the beer... bit of cracker malt, fair amount of citrus and pine, medium bodied, mild bitterness. Not bad, but GIBC definitely makes a lot better beers than this one.

12 oz bottle from Lunds. Amber color with a large white head. Hops and malt aroma. Medium body. Smooth texture. Pine hops flavor. Some citrus. Kind of like gin added to a malty beer.

On tap at Goose Island O’Hare. Comes golden orange with a decent off-white head. Aroma of pine, grass, and malt. Taste is pine, grapefruit, pine, and caramel malt. Pretty good.
