A distinctly drinkable Pale Ale brewed with a touch of rye and a blend of 5 hops. Deep copper in color with a sublte spicy rye character and an enjoyable hoppy flavor.

Sampler at the Schaumburg location. Hazy brass color. A thin head with a bit of lace. Somewhat hoppy nose mitigated by the soap in the restroom on my hands. A nice, big hoppy burst on the first sip. The hop bill seems aimed more toward bitterness than flavor, then there’s a slight bit of citrus, pine and grass.

Draft to taster at the Fishers brewpub. Looks decent; a transparent golden orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes of aged fruity and grassy hops with a mildly bittersweet backbone. A touch of spice on the tongue as well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. An inoffensive but underwhelming example of the style.

kramer (6528) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Clear dark gold body with a wispy white head. The nose is equal parts citrusy hops and sweet crystal malt, the crystal is a big turnoff for me. The flavor is sweet and under attenuated with a heavy iced tea crystal malt finish. Very light citrusy hoppiness. Light to medium bodied with a sticky residual sweetness and soft fizzy carbonation. This one is not up my alley for the style.

An okay pale ale. Tried this during HILT in Indianapolis in 2016. Mild and citrusy. Well balanced with caramel sweetness.

Draft at source. Aroma is very floral and fruity with light citrus hop notes. Not a bad aroma. Fairly hazy orange with minimal white head. Initially bitter followed by a supporting malt but not caramel sweet. Light bread. Hop flavor is very floral like the nose, roses. Decent enough beer but I don’t care for the hops.

Cloudy deep golden in color with a foamy white head. Lovely fresh hop and leafy hop aromas. Nice smooth hoppy flavor with leafy and grassy tones, a nice bready pale malt backbone, very crisp leafy/fresh/whole cone hop action.

Sampled at Ram-Rosemont, 10/26/15. Hazy orange. Sweet orange juice aroma. Orange juice flavor as well, with a light bitterness as well. Light and a little thin. Just kinda dull.

Draft 24 oz pour at the Hawks Prarie location. Not a bad way to end a full day of ball. Pours a clear, bright orange color with a minimal head. Sweet aroma of soft orange fruit. Sweet fruit, short hops, clean sweet finish. Decent pale here. Good for a session. Enjoyed this.

Ram Restaurant. Opaque orange, no foam reamaining after initial off-white foam ring. Small aroma, nice bittersweet taste, lasting bitter in aftertaste. (Chicago 201510)

On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a cloudy dull orange with a small white head. Nose is quite spicy, with lots of the rye upfront, and herbal hops further back. Flavour is along the same lines - lots of rye and herbal, citrus hops. It works fine, but it’s a bit harsh and lacking cohesion. Still, pretty decent.
