Draft at Kedzie. I preferred this over Ivan’s, just. Pours a deep gold with a white head. The nose shows good citrus elements and a toasty malt character from the Vienna. Clean fermentation. On tasting, toasted malt, resiny on the palate from the hops. Moderate bitterness and CO2. Solid beer overall, if a bit one note. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Poured from draft at Revolution brewery. Smells like citrus with floral notes. Close to an IPA but not as bitter. Super good beer! ccex (1393) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2013
On tap at Kedzie brewery taproom. Pours a clear pgsmge colorwith moderate white head. Aroma has a good citrus and pine kick, with some bready malts and spices. grass and floral hops. Body is medium to light without too much carbonation. An above average APA I wouldn’t mind trying on my next visit. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Draft pint on tap at the Milwaukee Brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice glowing orange amber hue, gentle haze, lively carbonation, and a healthy orange amber sunset glow throughout. A frothy offwhite head atop laces well as a filmy layer, sticks around in that capacity. Aromas offer tangerine and oranges, grapefruit and florals. Some grass and weeds, earthy bitter bent as a touch of spice, toasty and bready malts give some play. Initial is lighter end of the spectrum in body, firm bitterness, orange and tangerine hops, citrus and florals. Grassy and earthy hop bitterness provides a sufficient feel. Touches of pale malts, bread, and grain. Gentle biscuit and some earth. The backend is a decent bitterness, more earthy as more of the fruit bent from the front end from the Columbus hops falls off. Started pretty promising tapering off to a more mellow and average finish. Ok bitterness, earth and florals, gentle bit of spice, bready malts. Citrusy lemon and grapefruit. Solid offering.

Tap at brewpub. Pours copper with a thin white head. Nice aroma of citrus and pine. Well balanced and a nice brew.

Lots of Columbus. Super dank and drinkable. Really light body and great bitterness. Could drink a few pints for sure. deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of bitter citrus, light pine and grass with a slightly sweet grain backbone. Flavor has a similar combination with light pine and grass backed by slightly sweet citrus and sweet grain. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2012
On tap at the Kedzie location. Pours a clear, golden-copper colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is really fresh with lots of juicy grapefruit citruses giving off a touch of sweet resins. Medium sweet caramel malt backing with some grass and florals. Flavor is similar. Somewhat sweeter citrus grapefruits with a good amount of florals and grass. Medium sweet caramel malts accentuate the sweetness a bit before this finishes dry and citrusy with a medium bitterness and a few sweet citrus resins. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Fairly straightforward, but balanced and clean with a pleasant, fresh hopping. Good beer. pantanap (3367) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2012
5oz sample consumed at the brewpub location../ pours a mostly clear and transparent apple cider consistency and topped with a thin film of soapy white head... Herbal grass and citrus hopped nose. Clean and straightforward. Clean malt base. Semi-sweet with focus on the citrusy hops. Pretty nice and fresh as is... Crisp aromatic floral and citrusy hopped forwardness upfront. Very clean and non intrusive malt bill. Faint pale grain adding a mild degree of sweetness. Subtle light grassy bitterness on the backend. Body is shy of medium with adequate carbonation and pretty drinkable overall. I’d certainly drink this again.
