16 oz. can poured into a pint glass. pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a short lived head, not much going on in the way of a ring or lacing. aroma is mild tropical fruit with some grain. flavor is mild, mild, mild with subtle grains, some fruitiness and very little bitterness. low carbonation and thin to medium mouthfeel. this is a good summer-time, lawn mower, golf day type of beer when you’d like to throw back a few without getting too buzzed.

16 oz can, chilled in the snow and poured into a shaped pint glass. Reviewed on 10/31/2011 during a power outage. A – Deep golden copper body. White sudsy head. Decent lacing and edging. S – Piney resinous hops and a hint of tropical fruit. A little bit of caramel malt. T – Very clean and easy drinking. Some light grapefruit, piney hops, and a dash of malt. Fairly one dimensional. The bitterness is rather low as is the carbonation. Mouth feel is a bit thin and lackluster. O – A nice easy drinking pale ale. I’m liking that its 5.2 % and sold in 16 oz cans. If I had access to this beer it would probably be my go to session beer. The smell was really great, but the taste and mouth feel fell a bit short of my expectations. Still some very good stuff.

Cans purchased from the Jewel-Osco across the street from the brewery. Pours hazy light orange with 1 finger of dense head, ok retention, plenty of lacing. Aroma is extremely fresh cheesy, citrusy, and grassy hops with a hint of toasted malt. Taste is grassy, cheesy, resiny, and mildly toasted. Total hop bomb. Body is medium, avg carb achieves a ligh oilyt mouthfeel, dry bitter floral finish. Overall, if you live in Chicago and you absolutely, positively MUST have the freshest, hoppiest pale ale (short of going to Piece brewery, that is) then do yourself a favor and crack into a tallboy of this!

Can. Hazy amber pour with a bit of creamy, white head. Pine and citrus aroma with a hint of dust in the background. A caramel maltbase backs up citrusy and piney hops in the taste, a slight metallic note is there, luckily it is very faint and doesn’t disturb much. Medium bitter, a long hoppy finish. A very good pale ale.

Thin head. Mid burnt orange color. Nice smell not over the top. Mild taste then more of the pine comes thru. Small bitter finish. Seems a bit thin though. Nice beer to have a few of.

Somewhat hazy yellow. Got to really agitate this one to get any head. Orange, pineapple, lots of pine and grass in the nose. Lots of biting hops with good citrus balance. Kind-of assertive for a pale. Lots of taste for the abv. If you’re in Chicago (which I am) it’s always fresh, readily available, and consistently excellent...plus you can drink ten of ’em and still see straight.

On draft. This is fantastic. Pale ale...? Really? I’ll take it. I’m not gonna complain cause of all the FLAVOR. Flavor is key right. Well this hold the key to deliciousness. Pours great. Beautiful beer and perfect palate. Love it.

Canned. Extra sent in trade with my buddy pantanap. Thanks Kan! Hazy light golden color with a small white bubbly head. Light aroma of butter and pine needles, with cereal malt underneath. Good strength bitterness in flavor, flavor a bit lacking. Bitterness is all I really get here. Tasty, and easy drinking.
