[Tap] Draught at the brewpub. Darker golden color with a large white head. Citrus hops and sweet grains in the nose. Flavors of citrus hops, pine sap, and dry grainy notes. Lingering finish is nice and bitter. Tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Fresh on tap. The Weight is a very nice beer, but the batch the judges tried at the 2012 GABF must have shown brighter, as it beat Zombie Dust, which feels a bit silly at this point. Perhaps the debate was over whether ZD was actually more of an IPA. And it's true: The Weight is what I think of from the better traditional APAs, but will disappoint if Zombir Dust is what you want.

A smooth and crushable pale ale. Enough hops to make it interesting, low enough alcohol to not get you too plastered.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Couple drafts on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Been meaning to get out and try this for awhile. Pours a richer faintly hazed amber orange hue. Firely glow throughout, summer sunset meets my eyes, even in this environment. A frothy loose whitish head atop dies to a film laces small. Aromas are richer deep grapefruit, some florals, a touch resinous. Very grapefruit juice and rind driven, touches of bready and almost a toasty malt feel. Some lemon, grass. Initial is thinner, a light body meets a firm hop bitterness. Strong grapefruit and rind, juice and lemons. Touches of grass, florals, gentle bready malts presence just kisses gently even as we move through the middle. Light bodied, richly bitter and hop flavored. Perhaps a bit thin but quite "crushable". Dry and grapefruit ridden. Pretty nice beer albeit a bit thin. Nice very fresh and vibrant offering here, if a bit one sided and one dimensional as far as that flavor profile. Still, Iíd buy it a bunch.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at Piece. Served in a nonic pint. A: Pours a chilled amber color with a thin white head forming on the pour. Recedes slowly to a thin ring leaving behind some lace. S: Citrus with some light cracker malt backing. A hint of sweetness and dried grass. T: More like the nose, but a touch of lingering bitterness which broke up the sweetness from the malts. Slightly dank as well with a kiss of citrus. M: Extremely crushable. I could destroy a growler and then some. Light bodied with a medium carbonation and a very clean finish. O: An enjoyable APA. Not in the upper echelon of APAís that Iíve had, but a great local APA that is extremely drinkable. Iíll put this in the Daisy Cutter category. Itís good and Iíll definitely have a pint when itís back on, but Iíll shoot of a Zombie Dust over either. Serving type: on-tap

Pailhead (4416) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists of citrus, tropical fruits, grapefruit, and herbal notes. Itís a hazy dull amber with a small white head that leaves some sporadic fine webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tropical fruits. The finish has moderate grapefruit, light lemon, and a touch of herbal notes. Itís light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, this is really tasty and easy drinking. I could drink a lot of this.
