Originally reviewed: 7/9/10. Poured into a pint glass. The pour yields a murky dark gold with a thick frothy off-white head on top. Great retention; leaves tons of sticky lace. Scents of pine, citrus zest, and a bit of pepper. The body is a little thinner and more slick than I would like. Could stand a bit more depth. Starts out a bit harsh on the bitterness scale, but this mellows out towards the end. Some light peppery spiciness present. Citrus notes noted. Not a bad beer. I expected more, but still, great styling for an APA.

Aroma wafts from this one as you pour it. Pours a clear orange golden with a finger of foamy head. Strong dank aroma of citrus hops. Tastes grassy with lots of citrus - grapefruit, lemon, and herbal hops. Outstanding beer.

Color is a golden haze with thick white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Smells of grapefruit and lemon some malt. Excellent dry taste and finish, slightly sweet on the front end. Just a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (3053) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 Pours somewhat translucent orange amber with a decent biege head. The aroma and flavor both bring dank smooth hops as promised with a nice balance of sweet and bitter notes, the latter being slightly sprucey but smooth overall. Dank joint like for sure dude! Rerateing at Capones on tap, juiciest batch ever with great big juicy flavors of fresh hops.

Pours a rich golden color. Smell is of citrus and hops. Taste is big on hops up front, citrus, some malt balance, considerable bitterness. Overall a quality brew.

Scipio (774) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2012
Pours a clear golden with a full white head. Pleasing aroma of pine, hops and grapefruit, with pine scents being strongest. Tastes is very floral, consisting of pine, grass and citrus. A little surprised at how crisp this actually is. Good balance throughout. Perfect for a warm day.

arkurzynski (2010) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2012
Can thanks to bauermj. Hazy gold, near amber with frothy white head. Nice lacing. Beautiful aroma of pine and grapefruit, with a light malt twist. Flavor illicits only a generic-type pine and citrus flavor with light malt character. Some citrus zest residual. Easy drink, but nose over-performs and flavor under-performs.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Re-rate thanks to fresh cans. Thanks for the heads up Sean. From Mari’s. Pours clear orange with a nice white hea that dissipates in a couple minutes. There is nice carbonation in the glass. The aroma is hoppy, resin, almost grassy. There is some definite malt in the nose.. seems like light caramel an faint citrus. This is a nice hoppy brew with a real resin, irty hop flavor but not in an earthy way. It’s just right to the point with a light citrus backbone. Thin palate; however, this makes it drinkable. I think of this as a lighter bodied sculpin type.. and I love it.

I have to admit that I must try anything local when I get the option. When ending a late night with friends at Bad Apple (great find for a chill place to wind down with great selection) off Lincoln and Cullom, I had to try the one that was labeled Across the Street, IL. Great for a session beer. It packs a ton of flavor in its small punch and finishes very smooth. I can’t wait to go back and visit the brewery "Across the street."

I’ve loved this one for quite a while, but not gotten around to rating it... DC is an ’all day’ beer for me, refreshingly dank (not over the top), with herbal and floral notes, goes down on a hot day about as easy as a PBR, but with a hell of a lot more to offer. Everyone else has already listed all its other attributes, so why bother being redundant?
