Pours a golden wheat color, quick head that doesn't linger. Taste is very hop forward, softening in bitterness as it crosses the palate. Aftertaste is very pleasant and refreshing.

A second choice which shows the depth of choices at Hopleaf in Chicago. Pours a light orange. Big zesty citrus aroma. Good medium bitterness. Lively and easy to drink. I would have this every week if it came to LA.

Bottle. Not much I can say that hasn’t been said. If citrusy hop juice is your thing this is your beer. I’ve been drinking micros since 1995 and honestly I’ve never had a better beer. If I could only have one beer the rest of my life, this would be it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright gold color with large fluffy creamy-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is humungous and mouthwatering. The citrusy hops are unbelievable. Flavor is nicely balanced with sharp citrus notes, big bitterness, with a smooth caramel malty finish. Very similar to some others like Pliny and Head Hunter, and this one’s price tag is a bit high- like most 3F beers....

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle thanks to tom10101pours hazy and glowing light golden orange with a very nice white head, good retention and lacing. dank and spicy fruity hops, loads of mangoes, citrus, light pine, pepper, melons, candy-like notes too. nicely supported by a lightly toasted and spicy malt bill with just a hint of caramel. moderate carbonation - could be brighter, light body - oily, very nice dry juicy-fruity-spicy-citrusy finish. incredibly balanced. very good brew!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - pours light orangy amberish yellow. Nice color. Low white head that doesn't last. S - this is a nice clean pale. Simple but bold and really nice. Fruity nose, citrus and a hint of tropical fruits, pine and light dank hops to a nice biscuity vegetal malts. M - smooth drinkable with a hint of bitterness and a nice malty end, neither of which is heavy handed. Really well composed. T - taste follows the nose well with the fleshy citrus leading into pine and a light grassy note. Palate is a nice biscuit and vegetal malts with some caramel malts as well. O - a nice pale. The best? Maybe not but damn. Good none the less. 4.2

Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours lighter yellow with medium white head. Great nose. Clean citrus and a little bit of pine. Taste is also very clean. Light citrus and simple hop bitterness. Probably the best pale ale out there.
