Named after the rail line that runs along the west side of Logan Square. This American-style lager combines the robust hop character of an IPA with the crisp, smooth taste and mouthfeel of a lager. It is packed with grassy and flower-like aromas with a toasty Vienna malt backbone.

Special cask tapping dry hopped with Centennial hops. Strong hoppy aroma with lots of citrus notes. Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Taste is full of cereal and bright citrus notes. Nice and clean flavor. A little flowery. Medium bodied.

Draft to taster at Revolution. Pours a clear golden color with a small off whitehead. The aroma and flavor have mmoderately sweet malts, toasted malts, grass, light floral character, hints of citrus fruit, mild bitterness, easy drinking beer, hoppier than I would have guessed.

Sample at the brew pub. A standard IPL type lager with crisp grassy hops, herbal, citrusy dry finish. Good.

From old notes. Draft somewhere, I believe in rockford. Tropical and citrus fruits dominate with a decent malty backbone. Pretty good.

On tap @ Revolution. Amber pour with a white head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and bready malt. Some grassy hops, a bit of floral hop character as well, and some pine. Sweet caramel malt and lots of toast on the palate. Light grassy and pine bitterness. A decent floral hoppiness. Okay.

deyholla (10220) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Cask at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber gold with a bubbly white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of pine with hint of bitter citrus and resin backed by earthy grains. Flavor has much more of a bread and earthy grain with some earthy pine underlying.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Rating from notes. On draft at the brewpub. Pours a rich orange with an off white head. Aroma of sweet bready malts, mild dough, crisp lager yeast, and floral and grassy hops. Flavor is bitter, strong fruity and hoppy bitterness. This is balanced by a fair amount of caramel and cakey malt sweetness. Full bodied, lively carbonation. Finishes with a citrus bitterness.

Very unique aroma and taste for a lager. Had it on tap at Revolution Brewery, in Logan Square - Chicago. Very earthy aroma with a subtle hop taste.
