On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Study citrus on the nose, musk and a hint of melon. Medium bodied, gentle bitterness, thins out, then earthy hops. Tastes like a "session" ipa where there’s nice hop aroma and some flavor, but the body vanishes in the middle. Slow citrus hop finish. Easy drinking

Golden pour from draft at Revolution tap room. White sticky head. Mild and very fruity candy like hops. Delicious. Low abv but full flavor

On tap at the brewpub -- notes from June 8th, 2011.
Pours a cloudy orange-gold with nice, poofy foamy head. Big citrus aroma like your nose is in a bottle of ground coriander. Flavor starts with a tight, crisp hop bitterness followed by light moist grain and a fair dose of mild sugary malt. Finishes light, clean and crisp.

Nice, easy to drink APA for the summer. Tap. Clear gold colored body with white head. Light malt, citrus hops. Well done.

BeerandBlues2 (14403) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Tap. Pours clear gold with a medium, fizzy white head, medium-short retention with light lacing. Aroma is medium malt (cereal, cookie), heavy hops (citrus, fruity), and average fruity esters. Flavor is malt with bright hops and fruit. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Poured from a growler picked up at the brewpub. Clear, pale golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is pale bready malts with a hint of toast. A good amount of lemony citruses and florals with a light grass. Flavor is similar. Bready pale malts up front with a light sweetness before a balancing lemon-citrus-grass comes in along with a few florals. Finishes pretty dry, crisp, and refreshing with a medium-light grassy bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a lighter body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid pale ale. Nicely balanced, easy drinking, and refreshing on a hot day.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Stopped by to catch up on a few. Pours a nice golden pour, touches of haze, shiny glow becomes a bit dulled with a small frothy whitish head that rings and laces ok. Aromas are a plethora of citrusy hops, dry florals, grass. Lemons and grass seem to rue the day, with pale malts, bread, and faint toast working into the malt body. Dry and lively on the nose, but a bit one dimensional hop-wise. Initial is lighter bodied, preaching a good solid lemony hop bitterness, lemon rind, some florals, grass. But, overall a lot of lemons. Some bready malts, touches of pale, very light malt body. A touch spritzy, gentle carbonation with overrun lemony hops. Not complex but certainly drinkable and fairly tasty beer. Finish is dry and lemony, some touches of bready malts, lemons, grass. Simple. More grapefruit comes in, touches of florals. A solid APA, tasty, drinkable and light. A good strong hop flavor, but overall the profile lacks complexity and appearance could be a touch better. Still, nice beer.

Draft at Rev. Pours a very brilliant pale gold with a fluffy white head that falls to nothing. Citrusy hops really dominate the nose with some toast peeking through. Somewhat grassy hops as well. The flavor starts out quite nice with some burly toasted malts and light but crisp bittering. Citrus hop character is refreshing. Over time, it gets really grassy, which drags it down. That is the big issue with hoppy beers without the bitterness, imo. A very solid beer, finishes quite dry. Decent.

Draft at rev, pours a hazy golden with white head. A pleasant citrusy, floral, and subtle mint hop notes. Flavors are soft, citrus and piney that quickly fade into a doughy and leathery flavor. Simple honey malt base with good bitterness backs it all up. Palate is crisp, refreshing, but stops short. A nice beer but not the best hop choice for a 100% single hopped, this could have been fantastic with a much more dynamic hop. However it’s a solid beer and perhaps the most dry rev brew I’ve had.

chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2011
members pour... A dark murky honey gold, thea light off white head is gone quickly, not much to look at... Sweet grassy honey hops, a little bland but refreshing... Initial blast of honey on the front, dry grass, crisp, sugar cookie, and a bit of a bitter finish... Drinkable but highly forgetable
