4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Growler, pours a crisp golden color. Smells of simcoe hops. Taste is very hoppy, bitter but not mouth puckering. It's an easy going drink. I wish we could share it with the world but it's brewery only.

On tap at piece obviously... Pours. Hazy cidery brown hue and topped with a wispy white head... Aroma of pungent juicy citrus and tropical fruit forward hops. Clean and assertive with a pale malt base which basically fall to the wayside... Herbal citrusy hop assault upfront in the flavor. Somewhat clean but has a somewhat touch of buttery note that surfaces midway through and continues on late which eventually fades and continues in with a tropical fruit focus. Medium to just shy of that body-wise. Still fairly pungent and juicy.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. wonderfully dry and fruity hop nose and flavor, vibrant tartness and zesty, snappy hop acid (lemon + orange pith, tropical and floral, no resin) with fluffy carbonation. clean pale malt is moderately-to-heavily dry with bright, full, quenching malt acid. surprisingly well made and levels above Alpha King sampled side-by-side (which in recent years is much too caramel-heavy, vegetal and goopy for my tastes). probably one of the better low-to-medium alcohol hop showcase beers in the Chicago area, if clean, snappy pale malt and bright American floral / fruit hops are what you dig.

12oz pour at Piece. Orange pour with a decent khaki head. Strong citrus hop aroma with plenty of tropical fruits and hints of caramel. Malt and caramel come through lightly on the flavor with more citrus and tropical fruits in there. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Piece. Finally a new beer for me... Pours a nice looking, slightly hazed gold, frothy white head. The nose is bright and fruity, citrus and tropical fruit, light resin. Some soft and toasty malt as well. On tasting, an easy drinking Apa. Medium-high bitterness, light sweetness. Fruity and resiny hops. Dry finish. Solid.
