Hoppy, grassy and excellent right out of the can. Drank 3 pints and felt just fine the next day. Smooth drinking, with just enough booze to balance things out. Cheers!

As far as pales go itís tough to beat this one. Mostly clear gold. Aroma of floral and herbal hops, orange peel, grass. Taste of sweet fruit, grain and lightly bitter hops. Medium body, soft carbonation.

16 oz. can. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a large white head. The aroma is typical of PNW hop goodness: citrus, pine and grapefruit. There is a fruit juice type character as well. The flavor has the citrus, grapefruit and hints of pine with a bready type malt in the background. This is decent, but I donít think the flavor was as pronounced as the nose.

(16 oz. can via trade with pantanap, thanks Kan!) Pours hazy light gold-orange with a stiff and sticky off-white head per all the hops. Straight up super-hoppy aroma of pine and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is smooth but thin. Flavor of grapefruit-citrus and pine overlaying barely-there vanilla and caramel. Big bitter bite at the end and a bitter aftertaste. Hop assault.

If this is not my favorite APA, its in the top 3 to be certain. It is a great easy drinking citric pale ale. Very crisp, clean, and refreshing.

Chicago the new kings of the pale ale. This trip I have had 3 amazing pale ales. This one is wonderfully hoppy with notes of pineapple, grass, floral notes and slightly dank flavors. Crisp dry finish with an amazing hop profile.
