3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice copper with a foamy head. Aroma of tropical fruit/ floral hops, clean sweet crystal malt. Mouthfeel is smooth, average carbonation. Hops are dominated by pineapple and papaya flavors, a good burst of bitterness followed by slightly sweet caramel malt. More tropical fruit and a lingering bitterness on the finish. Great effort from a small brewery.
Moderate pine aroma initially followed by a sweet caramel malt aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with a pine resin hop flavor and light orange and nectarine jam. Fairly balanced between malt and hop flavor but more on the malt side when compared to most pale ales by today’s standard. Still a very enjoyable and session able hoppy beer without too much bitterness or too much burnt toast malt. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2015
Loved the color on this. Poured light golden with bubbles and a small white head. Hoppy and yeast nose that followed with a citrus hop profile that finished smoothly. A bit hop forward for a pale ale to my taste but good. kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Orange clear with white head. Fruit and hop forward with mild bitterness. Not bad at all. Had this at Emmetts in downers grove from draft, part of a flight. miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2014

Bottle. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy hop bitter aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a smooth bittersweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew. ccex (1366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle pours a hazy orange/amber color with decent white head and lacing. Aroma has lots of orange and tropical fruits, pine resin, and caramel with a bit of grass and bread. Body is medium with average carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. A solid, easily drinkable pale ale which I’ll gladly try again.
