ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dull cloudy yellow/orange with a frothy white head. This is a full on assault of resinous pine hops. Very little malt attributes to balance this one out... who cares? Not this swollen tongued fool.

Draft at piece. From notes. Loads of citrus and candied pine sap. Pretty good, but there is something just off that I can’t quite put my finger on.

tmoreau (2465) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2014
On tap at the brewery bar, and dispensed to a nonic pint glass, displaying a clear, orangey gold color, with average persistence to the frothy, white head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was perfumey, esters as apricot/peach, and light citrus as orange. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the hop bitterness was medium strength, citrusy, with a bit of grassiness, and supported nicely by a solid, bready malt character. A well balanced, drinkable APA.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
A golden ale with a thin lacing light mocha head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with floral and resinous hops, citrus notes, very nice. In mouth, a smooth fruity biscuit malt with floral hops, orange pulp, light and quaffable. On tap at brewery.

dinkle50 (999) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Cloudy orange pour with a nice head that hangs around. No lace. Aroma of grain and some tropical fruit. Mouth is creamy. Taste is full of tropical fruit, pine and a little grass. A mellow drinker.

Wow! Great pale ale. Orange and fresh cut grass on the nose. Beautiful orangish color and a nice thin white head. It’s pretty to look at, but even better to drink. Great flavors of orange citrus, fresh grass, floral, pine, and some sweetness at the back. Smooth but strong. Fresh tasting out of the tap. Really drinkable. This place makes 4 or my favorite beers that I would add to any must try list for Chicago.

MrChopin (3347) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Draft at piece. Hazy orange with thick white head that lasts for an hour. Nose is light orange and pine, flavor similar though a bit sweeter, thinner, short finish with more fruit and sugary pine. A bit candy-like in the end. Low carbonation muddles, needs more contrast here, pretty plain as a result.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Pours hazy orange with thin head and decent retention. Aroma is citra hop berry and tangerine character, grapefruit, and sweet caramel undertones. Taste is toasty with berries, tangerine, and grapefruit. Body is medium, thin, low carb, juicy bitter finish. Overall, a great pale that utilizes my favorite hop varietal.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2011 Draft... Dark cloudy gold with a bit of orange, a light ring but not much head.. aroma is nice, fresh cut grass hops with a bit of citrus... taste is really nice, grass and hops, super smooth and easy to drink... One of their better beers

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy gold with a white head. Big grapefruit and lesser green and piney hop aroma. Pine and minty hop flavors with a touch of biscuity malt and light butterscotch. Medium bodied. Nice aroma but the diacetyl in the flavor slightly detracts, if not much. A cleaner fermentation and this could be really good.
