This is a difficult beer to review. Besides the session-beer handicap, there's some things I really like and some things I really don't that each seem to come and go.
Pours a straw yellow with white head and low retention. Nice bubbles rising through the glass. Starts off with strong hops and some onion notes. The aroma transitions to mostly malt as it warms. Caramel and popcorn emerge in the taste and blend well with the hops. Onion comes and goes throughout. Mouthfeel is ok, not a strong point.
It's a fascinating beer, but it's too confusing to be something I'd want routinely.

Wanted to try this pale ale with an IPA taste.
A - Vibrant orange color with course small white head. No lacing. Very clear.
S - Strong hop nose. Full of citrus, some pine, and light floral. Very light grain smell.
T - Has all the hops from the smell with lots of citrus on the front and some pine. Light complimenting grain flavor but definitely hoppy. Very crisp light finish with nice hop bitterness.
M - Light mouth-feel with some graininess. Has some bitterness but is mostly clean on the finish. Light carbonation.
Overall, a deliciously flavored IPA with the body of a light lager. I love the hops and the nice graininess makes for a delicious brew. Perfect if you don't like overly bitter or malt heavy IPA's . It's from the Midwest but seems like it should be from the Pacific NW. I could drink these for ever!
