From can. Pours a hazy light orange color with a nice 2" foamy head. Very aromatic with good hop aromas along with oranges and various citrus aromas. Hop based, but not even close to overly hoppy. Medium bodied with a very nice feel. Delicious flavors of citrus, oranges, pine resin and some hop flavors as well As always, a great pale ale. Brings a good amount of flavor for a pale ale with a really good feel too.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 1, 2011
Canned sample via and shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with fairly strong carbonaton. Aromas are of pink grapefruit, lemon peel, sour melon, nettles, and a whole lot of cut grass. Hop forward in the mouth as well, with more grasses, grapefruit, and herbs. Light malts are vaguely present as well. Medium bodied, with a solid bitterness level. Good stuff!

16 oz. can pours a somewhat hazy yellow/amber with a 1 finger off-white head that lasts a while. The first whiff is floral. My first taste had me thinking citrus (grapefruit) with hops secondary. Medium body and cabonation. Finish tastes piney. Overall very pleasant and better than I expected out of a can from one of Chicago’s many newer yuppie breweries.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Pours a golden yellowish-orange color with a thick, two finger, frothy white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Floral hop aroma with some earthy pine, citrus rind and subtle pale malts. The citrus presence is subtle with faint hints of grapefruit and orange peel and the malt backbone gibes off some biscuit and crackery notes. Medium bodied with resinous hop oils and a blast of bitter, earthy pine needle flavor up front that is countered by the sweet citrus and pale malt notes. Slightly spicy with some earthy grass followed by hints of pineapple, orange and grapefruit before being rounded out by the biscuity malt character. Well balanced and easy to drink with a crisp, dry finish.

Glowing yellow with an orange tinge and a massive, rocky white head. Aroma is clean, lightly bitter hops, soft tropical fruit, a dry malt backbone, and a bit of citrus. Taste is clean and dry malt with a touch of hop bitterness and some light citrus. Nice beer.

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.

davey101 (746) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 3, 2011
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.
