crossovert (12642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2013
A smooth and crushable pale ale. Enough hops to make it interesting, low enough alcohol to not get you too plastered.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2016
Draught at the Piece Brewery and Pizzeria, Chicago, IL. Cloudy deep golden color with a small white head. Fruity hops, sweetness, mild bitterness, tropical fruits and sweetish malt in the aroma. The flavor is fruity hops, sweetness, moderate bitterness and sweet malt. Worked nicely with the spicy pizza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2012
draft. wonderfully dry and fruity hop nose and flavor, vibrant tartness and zesty, snappy hop acid (lemon + orange pith, tropical and floral, no resin) with fluffy carbonation. clean pale malt is moderately-to-heavily dry with bright, full, quenching malt acid. surprisingly well made and levels above Alpha King sampled side-by-side (which in recent years is much too caramel-heavy, vegetal and goopy for my tastes). probably one of the better low-to-medium alcohol hop showcase beers in the Chicago area, if clean, snappy pale malt and bright American floral / fruit hops are what you dig.
