On tap at brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy pale golden color with a two finger white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and a light malt backbone. Taste is light hops, yeast, and a little citrus. Very mild bitterness in the finish. Medium body, low carbonation and very refreshing

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
On tap at the pub...Poured a medium peach with some nice off white head. Forms a nice cap, good lacing...A nice of aroma of citrus, pine, and banana? Light, but pleasant...The taste is lighter as well but very sessionable. Light hops, yeast, a little citrus. Easy to drink but that’s mostly because not a ton of flavor or hops. I would drink this again.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2011
draft. pours hazy golden white head n tangerine citrus. flavors of caramel malts, soft bitterness, tangerine and oranges. chalky feel, astringent finish, problems with this one too, hopefully Pete will figure out his new system with more batches under his belt.

hombrepalo (1841) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2011
4 oz sampler @ the brewpub. Poured with a large foamy light beige head, sticky lacing. Resiny nose, hoppy with citrus peel. Has a hint of alcohol. Certainly hoppy on the tongue, but has an earthy malt presense. Lingering soily like bitterness, but not heavy. Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full. Good IPA, a little bit more earthy than hhoppy, but its clean and well built.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2011
4oz sampler at the brewpub... Pours a hazy apple cidery hue with a thin film of soapy white head... Citrusy and green hop profile, somewhat young but generally nice but nothing totally unique... Flavors take a step back as the hops profile doesn’t seem to be as clean as it should. Muted earthy with a touch of bitterness in the finish. No noticeable malts to balance and just a touch unrefined. Carbonation and body were on point for the most part. Looking forward to revisiting this one as this shapens up from batch to batch.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pete’s first beers. Pours a glowing deeply hazed orange fiery gold hue, a decent brighter white head laces well, cakes, and stays decent sized. Aromas are orange and lemon, citrusy hops mix with bready and biscuity malts, doesn’t get too big on the malt, with florals, grass is a bit heavier. Initial is lighter bodied, some nice citrusy hops and florals, bit of amarillo florals and gumball bite, grassy hops pervade. Quite nice on the palate, as it grows in a wave, bitter grassy kinda rues the day for me, some bread and and touches of biscuits, pale malts. Clean and bitter, soapy flourishes, more bready doughy malts. A lighter bodied IPA that could appeal to more people. A moderate hopping provides interesting hops, balanced, not a boatload of citrus or anything either way. Nice, dry, very drinkable. perhaps a bit underbodied and underhopped for a HopHead though. A nice first IPA to test the waters with

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Pours a very attractive gold with fluffy and sticky slightly offwhite head. Nose is citrusy with some resiny notes, light yeasty esters. Some fruity notes as well. On taste, it is quite bitter, though I don’t get a ton of the fresh citrus and orangeblossom notes of the amarillo. The beer is also a bit astringent, likely due to the new equipment and not quite having a grasp of the differences. Of course, I could totally be wrong. Still, solid first go at the new shop.
