Had this on draft at the Yardhouse in Glenview. Served in a pint glass. A: Pours a clear amber color with some lighter straw notes around the edges. A one finger bubbly white head forms on the pour and subsides to thin film. Leaves some sticky lace behind. S: Slighty malty with nice high hop presence. The main note is grapefruit and with a subtle floral component mixed in. T: The taste follows the nose, but with the hops more amplified. The oaty malt provides a nice backbone for the citrus hop flavors with a slight flowery sweetness. M: Light to medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel to it. Nice bubbly carbonation though and the finish is slightly bitter. O:This is definitely more hopped up than I remember from years past. It drinks more like an IPA than a pale ale, but is still a delicious and hoppy brew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-16-2011

Medium orange in color with a bubbly white head. Mainly citrus hops on the nose with some caramel sweetness. Leans much more towards the hoppy side than malty sweet. Not terribly balanced but I like IPAs and this resembles one so good in my book.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours clear deep orange, thick off-white head, phenomenal lacing. Nose is grapefruit, caramel, pine. Flavours of big pine and spruce, some indistinct citrus, not the equal of Zombie Dust. Nice, but I don’t see the high rating.

Amber with good head and lacing. Light aroma of citrus and semi sharp pine. Same in taste with some lemon, but sweet first and then soft bitter hits with grassy notes. Moderate mouthfeel with semi dry finish. Good APA. I liked and would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is my first FFF rating. I’ve always wanted to try some of their beers. Bottle thanks to rxeight in a trade. I always loved the label art. Pours with about and inch of head. Pours a deep orange color. Extra malty pale ale. Goes down very smooth and clean.
