Draught at the brewpub, Wrigleyville locationBeerandBlues2 (13825) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Dark amber color; unfortunately served in a plastic cup because of the game. Some malt and hop aroma. Solid brew, with a powerful malt and caramel flavor, but not too sweet, and a strong bitterness, with a lot of hop oils; the final indeed is amost harsh! Good and bold.
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge, frothy, white head, lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is average malt (husky grain), average hop (grass, grapefruit, pine), light yeast (earth) with notes of dust, pineapple, and peach skin. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter-dry finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Sample from cask at the Clybourn brewpub. The beer is a clear pale golden-amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet fruits and bready malt.. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and malt. The finish is fruity with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Above average overall. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2006
(Draught) Pours a lightly cloudy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of florals, caramel, and pine. Nice balance of malt and hops flavor.

Cask at the Clyborn. Pours a clear amber with a cascading creamy brown head that dissipates completely. Aroma has citrus and grapefruit with a nice smooth grain backing. Flavor has more of an earthy citrus note with a strong underlying bread note. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2009
tap at GI. Mostly orange pour wtih a smallish white head. Hops galore! The citrus jumps out...good grapefruit and a rich malt aroma that is accented by the wood chips I am sure. Flavor is really nice. The hops jump out but they don’t overpower. Good combo of citrus, floral and malt. Good stuff. marcus (10684) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours light copper with a decent beige head and a piny aroma. There is a tasty caramel malt flavor with a bitter hoppy finish. Well-balanced. gyllenbock (9878) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2011
On tap at Goose Island, Clybourn, October 22, 2011.
Clear amber with a small white head. Quite a lot of citrus and pine in the aroma. The taste was good though not spectacular. Good balance and a descent bitterness.

Pale golden pour with a sticky white head. The nose is awesome… lots of rich pine and even more mango and pineapple over a light lemony citrus. There is also a bit of floral sweetness and a zesty fruitiness. Moderate palate with lots of juicy hop flavour over a moderately bitter finish. The malts stay with you all the way through to the finish, just serving as a counterpoint to the rich hoppiness. Light pine resinousness on the back. They should bottle this, because they’ve hit on a winner.
