COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale ale is generously hopped yet balanced through the use of Munich and Crystal malts. Hops added after fermentation gives this American classic an intense aromatic bouquet. Enjoy!

Aroma is dominated with hoppy citrus notes and the head is frothy and lacing. The taste is sweet with a bitter finish but overall doesn’t have too full of a body or too crisp of a finish. An average APA but refreshing and local.

Clear copper - soapy lace - thin and watery texture - tastes a little metallic and coppery up front - lightly citric and woody hops - moderate acidity followed by some bready malt and light caramel - meh.

Pours an Extremely opaque orange. Looks like apple cider. one and a half fingers of off white head. Very little lacing. Nose is very hoppy and bitter. Pine, citrus and bitter hops. The resin and citrus mix is very potent. A lot of grapefruit, pineapple and floral notes. Mouth is bitter With a decent hop bite. Sort of bland for my hop preference. A slight sweetness is present but its not much. Resin is more present here. Average beer, but definitely not engaging like the label says.

This is a nicely hopped pale ale. In fact i would have though it was a mild ipa if it wasnt labeled pale ale. Overall a good beer if you want to try an ipa even thoigh it isnt one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at maproom in Chicago. Deeper amber pour. Malt dominated, deep caramel maltiness, milder bitterness. Ok

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 Aroma is citrus, malts and an odd/funky sweetness. The flavor is citrus, malts, butterscotch, a mild sugar undercurrent and a tart finish.

Non hop lover. Very smooth and refreshing. Nice and balanced. Easy drinking. Just a good beer nothing over the top.

Next time, I’ll pass. A bit too sweet for my palate, and though it is certainly drinkable, not my favorite. Not much hop, aroma is just okay with a little floral stuff going on, but certainly wouldn’t recommend.

I really enjoyed this beer. Packed with hops and citrus flavor makes for a great beer. Nicely bitter and smells fruity ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy yellow golden pour with a nice foamy large head. Nose is citrus and pine with a predominance of grapefruit and a dash of lemon lime.Taste is full of citrus and pine and very drinkable, and quite light. Finish is dry with some mild bitterness. A solid APA. Quaff Score 7 / 10
