Hazy amber-orange hue, with a mall white head, nice floral hop leafy nose, with some lemon, grapefruit note, with some piney, cedary accents, and a light toasty malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a good citrusy, piney flowery hop charater, with some resiny, coniferous, juicy leafiness accent, with a faint caramelized malt note leading towards a faint malty, hop piney bitternees finish.

Growler. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was off white and reduced in about one minute. Aroma was of caramel, cereal grain, lemon, and subdued grapefruit. Light bodied with mild hop bitterness. I tasted graham cracker up front with some grassy hops, and toffee toward the end. Not bad. heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2008
From a growler, thanks Mike and Mark. The body was dark amber with a khaki head. The aroma was grapefruit and toast. There was also some nutty almonds. The taste was grapefruit somw with some toast. There was also some apple core. A decent pale. WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2008
Kind of a let down with this one. Not a whole lot of flavor up front and it finishes with a weak dry hoppiness. Tastes like straw and feels funny in my mouth. Always happy to try something new but I would rather grab a top heavy if i could do it over. Aurelius (5294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2008
Clear, light orange beer. really nice balance of fruit, hops, malt. Not in-your-face. Pretty good for a standard APA.

Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma has some piney notes. The flavor has some nice bitterness, and it is dominated by the pine and citrus hops. It is very drinkable, but I prefer some of their other hoppy beers much better. Still decent though. stoutchap (423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2008
On tap at Piece. A hazy amber with small white head. Not much aroma. Some piney hops in the beginning, a citrus middle and nutty finish. But very subdued - I really had to roll this one around in my mouth and think hard about the flavor profile. I thought the finish was more like a brown ale than a Pale Ale - definitely was expecting something hoppier. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2008
This has a hazy look, possibly light amber (Darned brewpub lighting!) with a modest white head. The aroma is mainly tart orange, orange peel, and a whiff of pine, the malt barely eking out. Not much bitterness to the beer, mainly orange with some pale malty sweetness. Not very interesting.drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2008

on tap at piece of course. pours hazy golden-orange with thin white head. nose of piney, citrus, and spicy hop notes. flavor has a big piney hop bitterness with some leathery spicy hop notes mixing with a grainy malt taste. a bitter beer but lacks interesting an hop profile. i normal love piece’s hoppier offerings but this beer needs some remodeling.

On tap. Hazy copper with a thin foamy head. The name implies that this should be nice and hoppy, however, I found that the hop presence was fairly muted even for a standard pale ale. Had a bit of a metallic aftertaste but otherwise fine.
