5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Super carbonated with a bit of a watery feel. This brew has suddenly popped up all over Chicago in about every bar in town. This is a very easy drinking Pale Ale. Incredibly refreshing.

This American Pale Ale screams summer to me. There is something citrusy in it. Definitely prefer it on tap to in cans. First had it at a bar near Wrigley on draft and got hooked. I pick up the cans at Binnys. Or even more fun stop by Half Acre and get a growler! Take it to drink with you at a BYOB restaurant, the look you might get is priceless.

This is probably the best beer I have had. For the sake of nit-picking the head retention wasn’t great.

I think this might be my favorite beer. One of, certainly. And far and away my favorite session beer. It’s just so effing good, you guys. On tap or out of a can. Either way IT’S BLISSSSSSSSSS (froths at mouth, spasms, speaks in tongues).

The ultimate palate killer. But oh so worth it. The medley of hops, citrus, and grassy notes is epic and delicious. The most superb American Pale Ale brewed in all of Chicagoland.

Jeez. This APA just completely ruined me for all the rest of the pale ales and small IPAs commercially available here in Iowa. Beautiful light transparent honey color, big floral and pasture nose, and the first quaff is pure grass. Took one click off for SO MUCH grass, but hopheads won’t complain. Very mild bitterness, taking nothing away from the hop flavor. Delicious. As desirable as Alesmith IPA. Gonna have to try to clone this. You Chicagoans are so spoiled...

This beer rules. Pure and cool as a mountain stream. Pretty hoppy but not overpowering.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 Draft at Jerry’s. Hazy amber-gold with good, creamy off-white head / Nose of cut pine, weed, and citrus / Medium body, some sweetness, and good malt and hop balance, with excellent, biting finish / Flavors of cut pine, resin, weed, orange, grapefruit, and caramel / Outstanding.

One of my favorites on a hot summer day. A super drinkable brew with nice hops, pine, and grapefruit notes. And I do love drinking tallboys.

On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Some people may not feel as strongly as I do about the floral aroma and flavor as I did, but I have just been dying for another sip of this since I had it. I was absolutely blown away, what a pleasant surprise. If you find this on tap or come across cans, try this immediately.
