5oz on tap at the brewery. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Good tropical fruity hop aroma, light spicy hop... A bigger amount of hop. Light pine, some orange citrus. Light caramel bready malt. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Good drinkable refreshing hoppy yet balanced pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly translucent honey orange amber with a lacey white head. Aroma brings sweet hops and some grapefruit and a hint of honey. Flavor of citrus hops, suggesting grapefruit, on a balanced dry body that settles well on the tongue, smooth with no hop bite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at the brewpub, 7/16/14
Aroma: the nose has some grapefruit/citrus, some caramel, and a little butterscotch
Appearance: The pour is an amber color, some off-white head, and some light lacework
Flavor: The taste is much the same, decent hop notes, malts, and a bit of sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with an okay mouthfeel, average carbonation
This one wasn’t a favorite for me. It is a solid enough example of a style, but just not one that quite hit the mark for my expectations.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap @ Revolution. Amber pour with a white head. Huge butterscotch and buttered popcorn aromas. A bit of herbs, caramel, and lemon and orange peels. Pretty gross. Flavor is huge on the butter as well. Just sweet and buttery. Light herbal and citrus hops, some light bitterness, and lots of bread and popcorn.

This was a sampler at the brewpub in Chicago on Milwaukee Ave. It came in the glass red-ambre with a white head. Nose of hops and more hops, on a caramel malt base. Medium body. The flavor is the malts and citrus and pine. Not much bitterness in the finish but lots of flavor. Really nice APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the brewpub. Clear deep golden. Light off white foam and lacing. A honey first aroma. Floral. First sip is zingy and fruity. Gentle. Soft pale or crystal malts. Fruit is nice and builds in the after taste. A pleasant beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap. Clean amber in glass. Dried spice and hops on nose. A really hard to place, full, hops profile on taste. Nothing too bitter. First sip is surprising; there is more going on here than olfactory evidence would suggest. Some cream soda. Drinks nicely. Bitter finish.
