A fine way to start the NYE spirit. Great hops aroma with a clean, crisp finish to the taste. The hophead in me says that this is the way to start the party. One of the best from my friends at Half Acre. 16 oz can served in a room temperature glass. Enjoy

16oz can, courtesy of Frank, pours with a slightly hopped hazed gold to copper body that supports a thin light tan head. The aroma offers up an inviting mix of citrusy juiciness and malts as well as floral hoppiness. The taste delivers a pleasing array of bitter to resiny hoppiness balanced out by a smooth malty backbone. There are moments of smooth hop flavor but it gets increasingly resiny and grassy into the finish. Lovely Pale.

(draft @ O’Leary’s Public House - Chicago, IL) Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Dank and earthy hop aroma, very Nelson-like, with a bit of sweetness under it. Dank and earthy bitingly bitter hop flavor that leaves a lingering bitterness throughout. Very nice.

Tap in Mason jar in wrigleyville. Dark gold with thick white head. Very hoppy in the nose. Crisp and bitter, one dimensional but does well in that dimension. Strong bite that doesn’t last too long. Solid.

This is a bona fide Chicago favorite. Hop forward APA with citrus/floral notes and a solid malt backbone. Great bitter finish that lingers on the tastebuds. One of my ’go to’ beers.

Drank from 16oz can. What a fantastic surprise. Great body with floral accents, followed by a powerful hop bite welcomed by this west coast pale. Definitely one to drink again again. --you've been Dubbed.

Slightly hoppy with a very biscuity malt backbone. Has some slight pine and citrus.

In Chicago. Clear copper with 1 finger head. Recedes with lots of lacing. Very aromatic with citrus and floral notes. Some citrus and hops on the taste, but pretty simple. Good, easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1258) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2014
16 oz can at the Hyatt at Ohare The Pale Ale poured a light amber with a frothy white head. The medium body ale had average carbonation. There is pine resin on the nose. The taste was complex with resin and grapefruit throughout. An easy, dry finish takes over in the back as lingering resiny bitterness sticks to the tongue for a few beats.

Can from trade. Pours copper with a big clingy white head. Aroma is grapefruit citrus, floral, dank. Great mouthfeel with citrus and floral hops leading to a grassy bitterness in the finish.
