COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Buddy, pal, mate, brother (or sister) from another mother, compadre . . . sidekick. All of these are ways to describe someone or something that is always at your side. Sidekick extra pale ale is one of those things. This golden colored ale is loaded with juicy citrus and passion fruit hop aroma yet balanced with malt and hop character. A true companion.

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.

Draft at Kasey’s Tavern in Chicago. Standard issue, well made APA. Light floral and citrus hoppy notes. Lightly dry finish. Crush able for the long haul.

beer-yum (1210) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 23, 2016
Huge citrus pine aroma in a golden pour. Lovely balance between a hops and malt with a crisp lean finish. An excellent example of the style (US Pale Ale).

Can. Pours a cloudy gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity hop and faint pine. Medium mouth, juicy hop, light bitterness, crushable, very good.

Picked up a can as part of a build your own six pack. I really like some of the offerings from this local brewery. However, I find this to be middle of the road. Not much in terms of citrus that comes with the pale ale style. Heavier on the bitterness than most other than pale ales. Not a bad beer, just average.

Hoppy, earthy, grassy. Some light citrus, light malt. Fairly balanced, but a little bitterness comes through. Very drinkable.

drdisque (736) - Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2016
On tap at Warrenville brewpub. Bright, light, citrusy, moderately bitter pale ale with very light body and mouthfeel. Refreshing, but unbalanced and just not very likeable.

Deep golden color with a slight haze and a medium white head. Aroma is piney and floral. A bit of citrus with a mild bitterness. Not bad.

Can, de et partagée avec Omgrich. BB 02/23/2016. Dorée, col fin blanc. Arôme est léger malté, houblonné renforcé avec un fruité renfermé plaisant versant sur de belles effluves agrumes. Palais est léger vert houblonné avec un léger rappel de feuilles de thé. Malt perce bien et apporte une certaine base de grains tirant sur un léger biscuité. Effervescence est fiable voire moyenne avec au fini un petit côté agrumes - pomelo.
