Upright is a hybrid American Extra Pale Ale designed to be a session beer for the American hop lover. Highly fermentable wort allows just the right amount malt backbone to support a balanced addition of Columbus, Summit and Cascade hops and finishes clean and dry. With half the alcohol as Irie, we want you to enjoy a few pints and stay Upright!

Sampled from the tap at the Mundelin beer fest. Pours a hazy pale gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has notes of grassy and floral hops that are backed by light grain. Flavor has grassy hops with a bit of resin backed by light flora and sweet grains.

On tap at the brewery. Pours golden with little head. Has a light fruity aroma. Taste has contains citrus and hops, and has some grassy and earthy notes as well. Overall this has a very crisp feeling to it. Not bad at all.

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Mundelein, IL). Pours a rich golden hue, just a touch of haze. Rich golden hue, some good frothy white head dies to a decent film, ringer with small lacing. Aromas are mellow touches of citrus, more earthy grass and florals. Gentle touches of soap, some pale malts, bread. A bit tame. Initial is more enjoyable, offering a firm floral and grassy hopping up front, fresh cut putting green, gentle pale malts, some dandelion, florals, and touches of bread. An easy going light body makes this quite quaffable, the dryness and hops come more into focus in the finish. Some florals, grass, touches of lemon. Crisp bready dry finish aided by a decent hopping. Smaller beer thatís clean and dry, gentle lingering more earthy hops dry it out more. Enjoyable. At 4.8, itís not the smallest, but it works. Perhaps a touch more life from those American hop varietals is necessary (and Iíd expect more life from them), but itís not bad.

Draft at Tighthead. Pours a pale gold with a persistent white head. The nose has a tangy grainy note to it, followed by light citrusy notes and biscuits. On tasting, soft bitterness and a rather strong bready malt thing going on. Quite well balanced overall and clean, but really could use a bit more hops? Solid beer.
