Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

again, a perfect beer. i have never had a pale ale as good as this one. amazingly floral nose with a magnificently white head. a bright light orange hue with a subtle haze. bottle conditioned to perfection. citrus hops hit your tongue and take it all the way back to finish. you would think you were drinking a high end ipa with this one. hands down my favorite beer from this brewery. quite possibly my favorite beer period.

Bottle. Pours a yellow color with a moderate white head. Nose is super fresh with some floral and pine notes to it. Feels super light and easy to drink with some great smoothness. Very yummy and not too bitter.

I hate to give this beer a perfect score, buts lets face it, it is near perfect. I think the key is the bottled on date, which in my case was about 30 days ago. this beer, being bottle conditioned and very hoppy, does not age well. If you can get a bottle of this beer less than 60 days old, you will be drinking one of the best pale ales on the planet. Very hoppy and fresh, with the bottle-conditioned hazy yeast a near perfect beer. So addicting, I just wish they were less expensive.

Pours a hazy honey orange color with a finger and a half white head. Great head retention that leaves a thin blanket of lacing. Good amount of carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of more citrus fruits up front like grapefruit and orange. Then beneath that there are some tropical fruits like pineapple and mango, as well as a tiny hint of pine and floral. The malt imparts a sweet breadiness note that makes the fruit aromas seem more juicier. Taste is outstanding. Reminds me of a Hill Farmstead beer. Starts with hefty doses of bitter grapefruit and orange notes. The the middle brings a crackery, bready, sweet malt presence that balances quite nice with the increasing bitter, yet juicy grapefruit. Also starting to get tropical fruit notes as well. The finish brings more juicy tropical fruit notes like pineapple. Also getting more juicy grapefruit and a good amount of pine. Definitely detect the red wheat on the finish as well. Getting almost like a bubblegum flavor. Bitter, but not as aggressive as you might expect. In-your-face, yet delicate from the balance of malt and hops, as well as the clean finish. Medium body with a creamy and oily mouthfeel. The carbonation is perfect, as it refreshes the beer and cleanses the palate, which makes you want to take another sip. Iíve had a lot of amazing pale ales, and this one is right up there with those. Glad they are in Chicago now.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 huge beautiful aromas of soft tropical fruit, citrus and pine. pristine rustic white head, very fluffy and thick and attractive. Flavors follow the nose, but strong bitterness up front that fades quickly leaving a pleasant crispness. dry finish, superior drinkability. almost a perfect beer.

Bottle. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit, pine, and caramel malt. Appearance is light copper with a big white head that leaves excellent lacing. Brilliant clarity. Tastes of pine, passion fruit, apricot, biscuit, and citrus. Medium light body with good carbonation and a dry finish. Overall a world class pale ale.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 fresh bottle. excited about this, as hoppy 6.0 % abv pale ale is one of my favorite beer styles, and this is a brewery that has definitely delivered in the past. pours a hazed bronzed orange hue with a big frothy long lasting white head leaves some tight layered lace. aroma of big juicy clementines, tangerines. touch of pineapple. notes of grassy resin. nice. real nice. pleasant toasted malt backdrop. some caramel and clean pineapple sweetness. awesome balance. nice and dry. clean. great body. just an awesome all around beer. be nice if it was less than $7 a 500ml bottle. but happy it exists!

50 Centiliter bottle. Pours turbid dark straw with an aggressive 3-finger uniform, well-retained white head. Nose is....<assume the voice of former NCAA football commentator Keith Jackson> oh my God Bob Griese lemme tell ya bout the nose...this is a nose that Bear Bryant would forfeit a game to Tuscaloosa State to crave more of. Huge pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pine needles, spruce, black pepper, resiny sticky wet hops. A 10 for the nose easily. The taste is assertively hoppy, crisp, with a big tangerine and pineapple forefront, then some sweet orange marmalade and black pepper notes at mid-palate, and a bit more malt in the finish. This is truly one of the hoppiest APAs I have yet had, and would hold its own with the big hoppy IPAs in a blind tasting. The only negative is that it is a bit malt-light, but thatís a minor beef.
