On tap at Public House in Chicago. Pours dark amber, smallish head. Citrusy aroma. Nice hop bitterness, but still mellow. Crisp carbonation, but easy drinking. Overall, really flavorful APA.

355 ml bottle. Hazy amber with off white head. Aroma with loads of caramel, sweet malt, pine, resin and fruit. Taste is sweet, caramel, pine, resin with a lingering bitter finish. Very nice

Excellent pale ale. Dark amber with fairly frothy head. Floral and citrus nose. Hops hit with bitterness but fade fast. Nice and drinkable. Solid in everyway.

This is an amazing American pale ale. Great taste of hops that doesn’t last long and leave you wondering. Great looking brew. Pours a wonderful color with great lacing. Enjoy!

Another amazing APA from this rocking brewery, a tad more fruity maybe than the Zombie Dust, with notes of berries. A perfect treat for all hop addicts, don’t even try to resist!

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a thin head of light tan foam. Nose is of hops. Very creamy and silky on the palate. Hops flavor is pronounced on the front end with a slight bitterness throughout. Finished dry. A good example of the pale ale style. Pairs well with brats or burgers.

Wasn’t like anything I was expecting as this beer is there flag ship brew, piney floral notes kinda sticky/choppy, not bad for a pale ale, Love the bitter notes that stick around on the tongue but wasn’t what I was expecting. Not bad..

Bottle: A hophead's dream. Strong hopped up nose delivering a punch (for a labeled ale). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 Very citrusy aroma, straight forward peach, grapefruit and some pineapple.

Really a great pale ale, but I had this next to Surly Furious, and I got to say Surly Furious was a bit better, overall easy light malt body, hop carries it, not a lot of bitterness hop, but a lot of grapefruit and aroma, well crafted, but not perfect, still, very drinkable and enjoyable.

Had this again, on tap, next to Zombie Dust.

This one wasn’t much worse at all, just different, more crystal, more aggressive, a bit less balanced, with less hop aroma. But this time it was a lot worse from memory, Hoppiness wasn’t there that much except bitterness.
