The true king of beers. On tap at the Maproom, Chicago. Hoppy and I love the dry bitter finish these types of beers leave. Oily and blood orange body. All hail the king.

This beer pours a deep ruby and amber color...and wow were the hops and caramel sweetnesses flowing in this one. The aroma is all over the place hops and caramel malt...very fresh stuff here! This had a nice white sheathing head which died off very quickly. The flavor is slightly acetic with a wonderful malty finish and bitter hoppy front. Some orange and nectar with hints of syrup. This would be an awesome sticky staple for the summer. Dry, but not horribly dry finish.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 Nice drink for a hop-head. A nice amber/orange color with an off-white head that lasts whether coming from tap or bottle. Great citric hop aroma witha bitter, cirticy flavor to match. A great pale ale. Iím glad Chicago is near Munster.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Pours a brilliant copper orange color, medium white head with a fair amount of lace. Beautiful hop aroma, with grapefruits exploding out of the glass firing pine needle shrapnel. Impeccably balanced, bittersweet, dry earthy finish, smooth and soft carbonation. After a few seconds this beer kicks in with a massive caramel and pine flavor burst. Nearly flawless. An outstanding pale ale, and I actually considered moving to Indiana for a minute.

brown/gold in color with a strong hoppy smell with a bit of pine. Nice citrus flavor, but did not get the "quick, dry" finish in the commercial description

obisbeer (567) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 1, 2004
Deep amber gold, with fine white head, very rich color. Pine, flowers, carmel(light), peach, and other fruits. Full bodied, with lingering finish, and a dry bitter finish. Flesh fruit, pine, resin, faint malt flavors, while the malt so expertly supports the immense hops. Peach and citrus too make an entrance on the finish. Wow, thanks Brewso!

MrHoppsworth (47) - USA - AUG 25, 2004
The best pale ale Iíve ever had. Very well balanced pale as well. Hops are explosive and citrisy. If you have not had this ale you are missing out,because itís all the hype youíve read about.

There is nothing bad to say about this beer. Big malty taste with cascade hops fairly gushing across the mouth followed by a nice dry finish and a very slightly chewy aftertaste. A truly great beer.
