Amazing variation to the IPA subset, tastes very balanced and is quite smooth going down.It has a light brown almost coppery look and has an aroma filled with caramel, hops, possible roasting and a few other aromas I am not familiar with but pleasent to my senses nonetheless. ltbergner (4) - - APR 6, 2012 does not count

I think it’s a pretty remarkably balanced and smooth American pale. I like it a lot. AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Medium amber, almost copper like in color. Aromas are plentiful and well balanced. Piney american hops, citrus, lemongrass, honey, light caramel and a hint of herbal tea. Light to medium in body with good carbonation and a good bite on the tongue. A very good pale ale.

Bottle, best by 12/19/08. Wow, this is the first time in awhile that Ive been utterly shocked by the score for a beer on here. This shit is tasty! Aroma of grass, lemon, grapefruit, mint, herbal qualities, mostly coming from the hops it seems, but probably some of it from esters. Flavor also crazy with the diversity and blending of these herbal/minty/fruity notes. Bitter grapefruit and spicy finish. Fantastic APA. illiniphil (148) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2012
A well carbonated piney tasting APA. Great aroma. Taste is very hoppey with piney, citrus notes. A little short on a typical malt finish but good nonetheless.

Good light amber color,medium sized foamy white head with a good staying power.Mild malty aroma with a nice fruity,mildly spicy hop presence.The taste was mildly fruity upfront then later changed to a medium bitter hop taste,very nice brew not overly done but very tasty.The after taste is mild but mostly hops with a slight bitter bite in there as well.with a nice smooth feel that goes down very well.

Pours a bubbly copper-amber color, slightly hazy, especially towards top half of beer, with a two-finger off-white head. Left a decent amount of sudsy lacing as it thinned. Plenty of visible carbonation.
Opens up with biscuit and pale malts, some slightly sweet caramel , then a touch of honey and some light orange blossom- white grapefruit citrus zest. Finishes with a little bit of grassy, hay-like hops and some light pine notes. Subtle and pleasing.
Subtle lemon grass starts it off followed by a dominate graham cracker maltiness, slightly sweet caramel, a little bit of hops, definitely a bitter and slightly sweet/tangy. Finish is exceptionally clean, with only the vaguest hint of lingering bitterness and buttery crackers. Like the nose, it’s tastefully restrained.
Initially smooth with a slight crispness in the mouth. Medium bodied. Goes down easy and leave a mild bitter after taste. Very refreshing.
The mild bitterness is perfect…nice balance. Very refreshing and it had a nice drinkability. it’s not going to knock your socks off; bitter finish definitely adds a little bit of uniqueness that you don’t get with most pale ales which makes this stand out.

On tap: Map Room - Chicago. This was a nice surprise. Good color and mouthfeel. A fair amount of maltiness to balance the crisp cascade-iness of the hops. Much drier than anticipated. Quite good.
