Understated hops lean this APA more toward sweet than bitter. Aroma of sweet malts, peach, sweet grapefruit. Flavors of sweet malts with some floral hops and hop bitterness. Medium, somewhat sticky body. Quite drinkable.

A bit more like an unremarkable british bitter than an unremarkable pale ale, but its a mighty fine session ale - medium bready malt backbone and just a dash of spicy hops - good for gulping down with a burger at the pub.

An ok pale ale - a bit of a watery body, aroma of flowers. Flavor is slightly bitter, with a hint of spice and a clean finish.

The bartender in Chicago described this brew as "one of [his] staple ales." I wasnt too impressed, however. The hops was a bit overly bitter. Dont get me wrong--I like bitter if its done right. I just didnt think it balanced out well with the rest of the brew. An OK pale ale, but Id have others first, for sure.

Very easy to drink and would like to get again for a session maybe. However a slight ice tea taste makes this not great.

Clear darker golden pour with a solid layer of off-white head. Nice intricate lacing as it went down. Nose picked up some sweetness from caramel malt as well as a subtle spice bouquet and some floral hops. Flavor found all that the aroma had to offer. Somewhat dry and slightly oily on the palate with a medium-lasting citrus hop finish. Tasty little ale.

Bottle. Nice brownish amber color with a small foamy head. Lots of spicy, fruity hops in the aroma (apples and pears) and a bit of sweet malt in the background. Flavors of spiced apples, plums and grassy hops. Bitter, spicy finish with a tease of sweet caramel malt. Good body and light carbonation. My first goose island beer and I liked it..
