On tap at the Red Star Bar in Chicago -- This is an amazing pale ale. Aroma is fragrant and strong citrus. Flavor follows the same profile, extremely juicy hops in this guy. I loved everything about this beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy-cloudy yellow-orange with an inch of frothy cream-colored head that fades slow leaving frothy film. Aroma is huge pineapple and orange juice, passion fruit and guava. Yum. Body is light, oily, medium fine carbonation with a bit of bite and sandpapery texture. Flavor is, again, guava, pineapple, and some light graininess. No apparent sweetness, just enough to blend in with the fruit. Bitterness is herbal, moderate. Not out of balance for the style. Amazing.

Rating #1062 - April 20, 2014 - Bottle from Coop 6% - Golden amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness, mild floral, piney scent.Taste is a blast of hop character whose bitterness evolves to define this beer, a bold bitterness following a crisp, floral,resinous, citrusy sweetness. Not unbalanced, and extremely drinkable

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-11-09. Very lightly hazy bright golden orange body, modest off-white head and nice lace. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, with sort of a fruity straw Nelson Sauvin like character (though I’m not sure what hop it actually is). 7+ Lightly bitter throughout, pleasantly fruity hops, light straw and lemon touches. Finish is ever so slightly astringent at times but almost pleasantly so. A tad past the recommended drink by date but tasty nonetheless. Very quaffable. Bottle via trade with Duffman.
