On tap at Jakeís in Chicago in Lincoln Park area. Pint glass. Orange golden in color with good lacing and frothy head. Hops are at the forefront of the aroma. Taste is very solid with a balanced hop undertone and good sweetness. Easy to drink while still bringing a good alcohol level to the table. Mouthfeel is soft but with a hop bite at the end. Definitely worth drinking again. Name sounds like a hit song in the 70ís and Iím up for another listen.

Hamei fructat și note de pin și vanilie - are de toate dar sunt slabe. V‚rstă? E smooth. Foarte bine, dar nu ieșit din comun.

mambossa (111) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle to snifter. Yellow-gold with lasting head. Nose of colorful lemon & grapefruit, juiciness, gentle pine. Extremely well-balanced flavor, clean finishing, lemony, bright citrus, subtle floral pine. Very appreciative of the clean finish on such a hop-forward ale. However, I would expect more vibrant flavor from a 100-rated brew. Still awesome. Midwest, get it while itís hot. Itís making its rounds in the shops right now.

Aroma is slightly fruity, I get hints of pineapple/mango/grapefruit. This beer defines a great APA. Hoppy, smooth, and just the perfect amount of bitterness in an APA. One of my favorite beers of all time.

Chalsk (1097) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2015
A bottle straight from Indy thanks to Fitz. Pours an amber orange color with a white foam head. Soft aroma of caramel with some citrus and grapefruit. Light sweet caramel taste with gentle grapefruit notes and a mild hop hit. Some slight grass mixed in with resin on the finish. Perhaps the best APA I have had.

Eructoblaster (3395) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
On tap at Hopleaf (Chicago, IL). Slightly hazy, golden body with a lasting white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy and piney hints. Its sharp, well balanced hoppy taste carries citrusy, malty, herbal, and piney hints. Ends with a long bitter finish. Awesome!
