3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Swirl by 9/23/13. Pours out a weird yellowish green color with a somewhat sticky looking foamy head. Smells like a typical melange of tropical hops, mango, pineapple a tiny bit of pine and the residual onion smell. Taste like more of the same with a good cleansing bitterness finishing with a sweet maltiness. Palate is average. Overall an okay pale ale with a tropical hop twist. Taste is just too familiar to several other Chicago canned beers

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can (Swill by 9/13/13) to Spigleau IPA glass. Light gold color with a sticky white head. The head leaves large splotches of lace in the glass as it recedes to a 1 cm thick foam in the middle of the brew. All of this is surrounded by a sturdy ring at the edge of the glass. Marijuana fragrance emerged from the can upon opening. In the glass the aroma is more refined. Passion fruit and other tropical; kumquat. Similar flavors enter the mouth. Medium bodied and very drinkable. A well done APA.

Nice citrus hop aroma, pours a clear pale straw with a large white head. Fruity hops are the predominant flavor, with a lingering tropical fruit finish. Not much going on in the way of malts in this one. If you’re a fan of more bitter beers, this is a nice session ale.

nose is clean, wet grains fairly balanced with lightly acidic fruity hops. soapy head atop well polished gold body fades with moderate speed. flavor is inverse of nose - hops first; lip smacking lime, grapefruit. grains wash out later leaving palate refreshed. metallic twinge enters nose later.
