Draft sample. Pours a cloudy, deep, orange-hued gold with a small eggshell white head. Aroma starts with a ton of tropical and citrus fruits- melon, peach, mango, orange- then some clearer citrusy and herbal hops. Flavor of citrusy hops, crackers, pale malts, and other dry grains. Light-bodied, with medium crisp carbonation and a really dry mouthfeel, especially late and in the finish. Really nice APA but it’d be better if the flavor could maintain the initial rich, juicy promise of the aroma.

Bomber. Pours a murky orange yellow with a small minimal head. Aroma is super orangy, very nice amarillo? cut grass, light sweet note, maybe citric tangerine. Very sessionable! A little more approachable then daisy cutter but just as flavorful, medium punch of bitterness at the tail end that lingers, some orange up front, very nice and super drinkable. Thin body with light carbonation.

22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is grassy, juicy citrus with oranges and clementines, and doughy bread. The flavor has more juicy citrus with the focus being oranges and clementines, grassy, and biscuity malts. Easy to drink and would serve as a tasty alternative on a summer day.

Bottle; pour is murky dark golden with a modest off white head that retains on the average side in this glass. The nose is caramel,biscuits, grapefruit really. This is a nice, fairly balanced pale that doesn’t seem to have any remarkable elements, but overall; a nice drinker.

bottle... dark hazy gold, a bit or orange, not much of a head, watery light tin and thin... really enjoyable aroma, tons of fresh hops, a touch dank, a bit of cascade, not much malt, more of hop bomb... tastes a touch to grassy, could use balance but pretty good, and happily HF finally put out a good beer in the last year

Purchased at Half Acre Brewery in Chicago, IL; enjoyed with a good friend while watching game 7 of the World Series. Appearance pale yellow, slightly cloudy, thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, touch of citrus, smells light. Taste is crisp and light, definite grapefruit, light hops, crisp, slightly refreshing. This is a session ale, but at $8 a bomber it’s a bit steep.

Tmoney99 (12212) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy orange color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

TheAlum (6428) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Growler shared by Drew. Thanks! Pours a well hazed near murky dulled golden amber hue. A frothy loose brighter white head, dies to a film and laces ok. Aromas are lemons and grapefruit, florals and grass, a vibrant fruity nose with some pale malts, oranges, and nice florals. Initial is light bodied, a bit clean, with lemons and grass, bready malts, gets a touch watery. Middle throws some oranges, light malt body, touches of dry florals and lemon, light citrusy hops mesh into oranges. Finish is light dryness, faint crisp cereal and bready malts. Ok. Quite drinkable, but definitely lacks complexity, becoming a one trick pony of sorts. But, I’d say this might be better overall than the other.. Less flavorful, but enjoyable and a true sessioner. A bit bland, I’d prefer Daisy Cutter to this almost every time. Seems a strange offering..
