Itís a bit pilsner-like, though with more of a hops punch. The bitterness is a tiny bit too astringent, with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Not enough malt sweetness to balance it. Quite mediocre.

12oz can. Some floral and slightly citrus hops. Edifices or slightly below IPA Iím glad that spiteful moved to 6 packs, none of their beers were worth the bomber price point.

Pour is hazed pale golden with lots of tight white head. Nose is light grain, faint honey, a bit of sweet malt, hops are herbal with notes of melon rind. Taste is even sweeter, stronger grain but more sugar, lighter malt, hops are husky melon rind and a bit grassy, hay like. Very light bitterness, drinkable, moderate carb.

A very solid pale ale from Spiteful. Some citrus notes here amongst a caramel malt backbone. Well rounded, good spot of bitterness on the back end.

Can from a mix-6-pack from Binnyís South Loop. A crystal clear light copper-gold pour with a wonderfully hoppy nose tropical fruits and dank resinous pine. Earthy pine bark bitterness with a fruity finish this is definitely a hop forward pale ale. My wife loved it and all I got were her leftovers!
