NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2013
Draft at Kedzie. Pours a pale gold with a sticky white head. Nose is pineapple and citrus, light petrol, toast and guava. Light ethanol as well. On tasting, moderate bitterness that sharpens through the finish. Guava and pineapple, kerosene notes. Light malt overall and dry finish. It’s an ok beer but not really something I’m a big fan of.

Bottle. Pours a golden amber with a very slight haze; soft, off-white, lasting head. Aromas of citrus, melon, peach. Moderately bitter; some fruitiness mid-palate; dry, bitter finish.

jmagnus87 (2857) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Draft. From notes. Nothing heroic about this, more like mild mannered middle management. Some nice citrus hops but not nearly what I was expecting. Way Over hyped.

fraternie (888) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2015
A very pleasant, session able, creamy texture here for a beer that straddles the line between pale ale and IPA. Nothing extravagant yet nothing out of balance, with citrus malt flavors balanced by a pleasant hop backbone.

Lubiere (10788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
A hazed golden amber DIPA with a thick frothy lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet biscuit malt with loads of grassy and pungent Galaxy hops, light treacle, pleasant and complex. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light pungent character, light alcohol warmth, very nice. Bomber at Lalo’s, Midway Airport.

Enjoyed on tap at Reggies in Chicago, IL before my high school punk band is playing a reunion show. Appearance is clearish gold with not much head. Aroma is citrusy, light, but smells good. Taste is pretty good, light hoppy profile. Enjoyable.

thornecb (4715) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2015
Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Tropical fruit and resin aromas. Dry with caramel upfront turning quickly to resin and citrus.

Dogbrick (9118) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2015
Sample at 69 Taps. Hazy orange-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, mango and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

PhilJackson80 (472) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2015
22 oz Bottle. Tasted on 4/4/15. Bottle from West Lakeview Liquor. You get a ton of galaxy hops on the nose. The body is fairly light & crisp on the finish. Good balance overall. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear gold with a thick white head and plenty of lacing on glass. Has a citrusy aroma. Taste is hoppy and there is not a whole lot of bitterness. Not a lot of citrus flavor which is good to me. Overall a real is beer to drink.
