Late add from a trip to Chicago. Pours a pale gold with white head. Nose is thin but delicious with fruity hops. Taste is well balanced with a refreshing, watery burst moving into a finish of cirtus hops. A session beer for a hophead.

Strykzone (4832) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. A hazy golden beer that has a decent white head. The nose is grapefruit and pine hop notes. some caramel. The flavor is very dry and bitter. That bitterness is so cloying that little else can be tasted. Aggressive to the max! Subtlety is lost and is missed.

Super carbonated with a bit of a watery feel. This brew has suddenly popped up all over Chicago in about every bar in town. This is a very easy drinking Pale Ale. Incredibly refreshing.

madvike (2672) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Can shared by MrPickles - Pours light clear amber with a nice white head. Smells citrusy, but with a decent amount of fruitiness. Not a ton of malt. Taste is the same, but not as pungent. Feels a bit watery in both taste and mouthfeel, and the carbonation is jacked up a bit much. Nice herbal finish. Very good stuff, and could see drinking a couple of these on a hot day.

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2011
Can from Matt as a nice extra. Pours a straw yellow but its a nice opaque amber/orange in the glass with a large white bubbly head. Great nose of hops without being too overwhelming, some citrus, floral and grass notes as well. Taste is quite strong - medium bodied, well carbonated, nice bitterness with a good aftertaste. Seems to be somewhere between a DIPA and IPA but regardless its tasty.

Thanks to EzAnt for sharing a can of this at Dmacís. Pours out a moderate golden color with a big white head. Aroma is of nice citrus, and light bready malts. Taste is complex and well balanced, citrus, light grass, some grainy malts, but the hops are upfront, but never the punch you in the face of a West Coast IPA. Very nice session.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2011
Iím not ashamed to admit I had it straight from the can, @ the NK Wielrennen in Ootmarsum. Firm oily grapefruit-like hopflavor. Long earthy, almost plastic aftertaste. Grapefruity hoparomas. Thin to medium bodied. Bone dry with a long aftertaste. Tart and pleasant.

Can from jrallen34. A canned pale ale rating in the high 90s? Thanks for this one guy!!! Popped the top and had a real foamer. Quickly to the glass for a four finger off-white head that did exotic foamy things. The aroma is like a NW IPA. Med+ body. Flavor is lots of citrus and floral hop over a roasted malt. Hop wins!!! This is good stuff. The bitter is not harsh, but itís really bitter. Brilliant!

16 ounce can pours a deep golden yellow had a huge white head that retained really well. Had a great aroma of hops, floral notes, and citrus. Its very light and refreshing, a really good APA.
