On tap at the Schaumburg location. Clear amber appearance with a lacy off-white head. Piney spruce, light hop resin, grass, husky grains, floral notes and herbal hops in the aroma. Medium hop bitterness, a little harsh, with a hint of malt sweetness. Meh.

freekyp (1775) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2015
A well balanced pale, The Duke starts with a citrus hoppy nose with light caramel malt tones. Not a lot of bitterness, but a lot of fruity hop character with a lasting finish. Pours light copper with a wispy off-white head.

Pailhead (6142) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate caramel, fruit, faint citrus, and florals. Itís a hazy amber with a small off-white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thick ring. There is a thick sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick moderate and a touch of fruit. The finish has light-moderate florals and light pine. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, itís solid, but English IPAs arenít my favorite.

Listed here as a pale ale, but actually an English IPA. Citrus and grassy hop aromas. Tasty body with a bready malt and heavy hop flavors of citrus, pine, and hay.

Pours clear amber with an off white head. Caramel pine and citrus weíre there but it was really in the back reindeer and it didnít offer much else. As with most gc beers its,not offensive but not very exciting Either.

Draft. Pours orange amber with a white head. Mild hoppy bitterness, with grassy and herbal notes, some light toffee malty sweetness, and a hint of hoppy astrigency in the finish. Ehh, not great, but the balance makes it actually decently drinkable.

Brigadier (3405) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
On tap in Cleveland (OH)
A half hearted IPA follows the right cues but fails to inspire any confidence. Even if it were the $3.00 happy hour special I would probably go with an alternative draft. You should do the same unless you happen to be looking for a few cheap ticks.

Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent bronze core rests beneath mocha colored head. Grapefruits, malt, and iced tea spiked with fruit juice lend this a short lived but bright profile.

Flavor / Palate - Grapefruit and rosy iced tea refresh the palate with a nice wave of flavor before fading like a quick sunset. The tease of bitterness fails to leave much of a trace. Without anything to support a promising start this beer becomes nothing more than a filler to pass time while watching sports with friends.
