64 oz. growler from the brewery. Pours a nice, bright gold with a pale white head. Aroma of delicious amarillo hops. Lemon, orange, gumballs, Some pine and floral notes. Light cracker and bready malt aromas. Flavor is bright, clean, dry, with lots of flavorful citrus bitterness. Mild earthy fruits. Some biscuit and cracker malts as well. Medium bodied, nice texture, lively carbonation. Finishes bitter and nice. Loved this.

drewbeerme (3898) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Draft, pours slightly hazy bright gold with white head. Aroma has a pleasant grapefruit rind, floral, slight pine. Flavors have a firm bitterness, grapefruit rind/citrus fruit is very vibrant on the palate, malt base has a slight toast and cracker bent to it but isn’t as toasty as daisy. Seem earthy fruit notes finish. The bitterness is a touch high to make this truly sessionable and the whole experience is a little one dimensional but as it is, it’s a solid extra pale.

TheAlum (6297) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Draft pour on tao at the Half Acre Tap Room (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice crisp golden hue, bit of a darker middle and body. Mellow haziness, gentle summer sunshine glow on the edges and bottom. Loose bubbly white head atop dies to a mellow film, sticks around small, laces lightly. Aromas show gentle fruit, bubblegum, and tropical fruit. Decent citrus rind, florals, and a dry earthy hopping. Bit of bready malt, straw. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body, firm complex fruity hopping throws grapefruit, guava, tropical fruit, and lemon. Medium bitterness, gentle carbonation. Some bready malts, straw. Middle is a bit more mellow, setting up for a bigger firm bitter backend. Prickly green leaft floral hops, some grapefruit, tropical fruit. Firm, dry, resiny. Finish is citrusy and dry, rind oils finish well. A touch bready and cereal at times, some soapy floral mix in and leave a firm dry, bitter finish. Nice complexity of hopping, light crushable body. Nice. Pleasant nose.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft at HA. Pours a pale gold with a sticky white head. Nose is hop forward with apricot, low faint fossil fuels, citrus and toast. On tasting, moderate bitterness with a nice plain malt profile. Well balanced, though the hops get a bit heavy as you drink. Clean and refreshing, just wish it was warmer outside...
