Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Perfect beer on a hot Chicago day! Pours thick unclear orange amber with a beige head. Aroma brings light sweet grassy and citrus notes, very light. Flavor is big and juicy delicious oranges with a dry rind like but balanced note. There is no sharp bite and a decent satiating juicy body.

Pours a hazy golden color with a medium off white head that had good retention and left good lacing. The aroma is floral hops, white bread, and mild hop resin. The flavor is floral slightly bitter hops up front and finishes with a sweet malty finish.

Bottle. Taste is grain, various hops, malt, hay and a gentle hint of booze. Smooth and easy drinking.

Odeur particulièrement dégueulasse. Petits pieds, vieux pet retenu, chambre humide pleine de moisissure et manteau en laine pleine de sueur froide. Je sais pas ce qu’est du sweetgrass, mais ça goutte bizarre.

drpimento (3815) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2015
I guess the best thing about this beer is its appearance with plenty of lace and a nice amber color. Everything else was just above average.

3.5
Finhead (1848) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2015
A cloudy, orange pour with a small, white head. The aroma has orange juice and some mild pine. It has a light body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with more sweetness in the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Draft at Miller’s Pub in Chicago. Amber pour with a small cap of white head. Aroma of grassy hops. Light, crisp, well balanced. Dry finish. Textbook APA.

Great pale. So much going on with differentiation with hops. Perfect mouthfeel and carbonation. 6% ABV perfect balance!
