3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Delicious oak style pale ale. Lots of hops and intense citrus and floral notes. Lots of spunk in this ale, some nice fizz and a pleasant finish of pine and mint. A real treat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6th January 2013
Hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish but with prickly carbonation. Creamy malt with a touch of caramel. Fresh bitter hops - orange and orange marmalade. Gets sweeter before the crisp finish. Quite a simple beer but it works very well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a big malty component; toasted bread, mild caramel with citrus and pine hops. The flavor is more malt forward. Bitterness is on the lighter side.

22 ounce bottle poured a golden color, aromas of spruce, pine, citrus and malt. Flavors are light citrus with some malty backbone. A nice beer overall.

This is a really terrific PA; on-par with other excellent local pale ales like Daisy Cutter & Double Fist. Drinkable, great citrus-y nose, nice bold hoppy flavor, and a cool-looking label. Another excellent addition to the local Chicago craft family.

Bottle. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and spruce hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good brew.

Bomber to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks solid; a semi-transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells semi-sweet and MALTY. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Decent, but a little malty for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Thanks, Tom! Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. I didn’t pay attention to the batch, so I’m not sure if it was 27 or 43. Really malty. Crackers, toast, breakfast cereal, grass, floral notes, and some citrus peel. But malty up front. Light-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. Drank under the assumption it was an APA and still leans more that way, if that means anything.

Smells of pineapple and apricot. Excellent mouthfeel. Nice body. A little sticky. Tropical fruit bitterness up front, meek caramel in the middle, resinous, lasting finish. Incredible. I could drink this all night long. An exceptional beer.

Decent pine with a bit of caramel scent. Taste is similar with a very nice pine and toffee/caramel taste is decent.

December 15, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Golden brown pour with some head. Citrus and piney hops in aroma and taste. I am just too drunk and tired to add anything more to this rating.
