12 loose single at Binny’s. Finally getting to sample an Ale Syndicate brew. This pours a pale lager color under a meringue head. Nose in the glass does not offer much in the way of hops, just a light malty beer nose, but not sugary like the pale lager it resembles. I finally get a nose of one of the 3C’s when I tip it to drink, and there is a light mouthfeel with a mellow dose of hops. It almost comes across as a bit watery, bit it goes down pretty quickly, and leaves a sizable piece of its foam behind. A decent lighter beer with its own ideas for how hoppy to be.
The finish is too dry. Grainy. However, feels like there’s potential for more room.

Hazy light copper coloured body with a frothy off-white head, about three centimetres tall. Aroma of grassy and lightly citrus-based hops with some pine and resin noticeable, along with a touch of sweetness at the end. Light-bodied; Strong dry and grassy hoppy flavours up front with a nice floral kick, some moderate sugars from fruit and a good bitterness that shows a very light side, directly from the hops, but in a nice way. Aftertaste is balanced well with some subtle hop kicks with a touch of sweetness and a hint of malt, but very little else and nothing cloying - just an easy-to-drink beer that shows some nice characteristics. Overall, a nice Light IPA with some good flavours, but nothing pungent, offensive or too flavourful. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Chicago (Streeterville), Illinois on 11-May-2016 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 11-January-2017. fakebeersnob (325) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Might be a bit overly harsh on this, as I had it after the far superior Matilda. I don’t have good tasting notes, as I was out with family at a pizza place. The only real tasting note I have was that it was a little too perfumy/soapy for me. Tasting notes are bad, but seriously doubt I will try again to improve it.

Hazy golden color with a taller near-white head. Mild honey and floral hops. Watery flavors. Just a pale ale. 4/14

Aroma is malts, grapes and very light citrus. The flavor is light citrus, malts, a hint of grapes and a mix of hops and and tobacco in the finish.

Pour is a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is a nice floral hoppy. Flavor is a weaker with the hops but still has a nice floral aspect to go along with a bready malt backbone. This is probably average as far as session IPA"s go. Ok hops with a study malt that does not let this get too watery. ryrpat (378) - Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2015

Kinda has a funk to it, want to say it is in the hops. Very light. Leaves an odd, soapy aftertaste. Ehhh.... dukeandduke (270) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2015
3/8/15 (Bottle) - Nice firm white head, dark brown pour with good carbonation. Hoppy aroma, nice medium harsh taste and thick feel. Light abv but didn’t feel like it. Overall good beer. GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2015
