Location: Draft at State and Lake, 6/24/14, Rating #3737
Aroma: This one has a nice, clean, hoppy aroma, citrus, and a bit of caramel
Appearance: This one pours a gold-orange color, with an off-white head and decent lace
Flavor: It has a medium bitter hop flavor, with some balancing malts to it
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a clean and easy drinking feel
This one seems to be all over Chicago, and for good reason, it is a nice, easy drinking, solidly hopped, APA. I can see why this would be popular.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Binny’s in Chicago - a decent apa, but nothing that I think would stand out in a crowd or a blind tasting - hazy orange - aroma ajd flavor of lightly biscuity malt and moderately dank, citric hops - there’s not much else to say, really - solid, drinkable, clean, but nothing amazing.

Can from Kevin. Thanks! Pours golden with just a hint of haze and. One finger white head. Nice grassy hop aroma, pale malts, some light honey sweetness. Flavor follows with lots of grassiness and hay, dry, very light malt sweetness, maybe a bit of citrus. Very light bodied, goes down super easy with a dry finish and lots of carbonation. Good stuff. Wish I could get this fresh all the time. Must be great to have out on the lakes.
