3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Gravity Pale Ale at Clark Street Alehouse. Based on research, this seems to be the right listing. If not, I’ll change it. Pours a pretty standard copper with a sticky head. Nose is lightly spicy hops and some caramel malts. Pretty clean nose, perhaps a touch fruity. On taste, more of the same. Soft bitterness that doesn’t overwhelm or grow harsh. Full malt character. Solid beer, just not spectacular.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours from the tap a orange-copper color with a modest white head that fades down a bit but lasts through the entire tasting. Aroma has a mild floral nose, some mild orange citrus in there and finishes with some bready malt notes that meld well with the hops bitterness. Flavor has a good bitter background with the orange citrus coming to the front of the palate early. The bready flavor comes in late in the tasting but helps to bring the flavors present from the hops together. Body is modest with a great amount of carbonation that makes the aromas travel and the flavors pop. Great brew and a very drinkable APA for almost any day.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Warrenville as "Gravity Pale Ale." Pours a paler golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is bready and flowery with a light citrus grass. Flavor is the same, but poorly balanced. Its like the beer is split in two. Bready and doughy with a light caramel sweetness up front before the flavor cuts off, then comes back with lots of florals and a light citrus grass, herbal spice. Finishes dry and messy with a moderate length aftertaste. Medium body. Overall, at first whiff it seemed like this had some potential, but the balance was too off for me to fully enjoy it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Warrenville. This one listed as "Gravity Pale Ale", a collaboration between two brothers and clark street. Since this listing appears to be what I drank, I’ll rate it under this name. It came poured with a light cream head, and was bright honey-orange in color. A very airy nose that had some floral and mixed citrus fruit hops, along with some bread. Palate was on the lighter side, and the drink overall was a bit out of balance toward the hop side. Herbals, citrus, apples, other mixed fruits, and some light caramel, bread, and soap. Overall, this one needed some work, but I enjoyed it still.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2010 Pint served during the end of it’s tenure on tap at the Two Brother’s Tap House. (according to Gabe) Called the "Granny"- a Gravity Strong Pale Ale made in conjunction with Adam from the Clark Street Ale House as a classic Pale Ale -> IPA. (according to the beer menu) The pour was a very clear golden hue, with a modest, bubbly foam that diminished to a light film and perimeter ring but left some nice clingy spots and ribbons. The aroma was a subtle touch of sweetness, bready malt and grassy hop aroma. The flavor was the smooth malt and balancing hop flavor and bitterness, less the sweetness. Flavorfully light, crisp and clean, with a nice dry finish. By now, the house had settled on the name "Gravity Pale Ale". This time I picked up a combination of pineapple and grapefruit in the nose, and some sweetness that lasted into the flavor. Just as pleased with the results.
