16 oz can into Flying Dog chalice. canned on 10/15/12.
A: slightly hazed rich golden hue. bright white head. finely bubbled. good retention and moderate lacing.
S: pine and orange peel aromatics make up the aroma and make for a rather pleasant smell. a faint biscuity malt aroma as well.
T: pine hop flavors start off the body. some citrus as well. finish is dry and bitter, with a touch of lemon grass flavor. not overly cloying.
M: carbonation is subtle and appreciated. light bodied pale ale.
D: with such a light body, this thing makes itself out to be quite the gulper. certainly a beer i could drink quite a few of. glad more breweries are making sessionable hoppy beers these days. pick it up if you can find it.
Serving type: can

Served on tap at Pizano's in the loop in Chicago.
Coarse white head dissipated quickly, but left very sticky rings. A clear, slightly gold-tinged straw color with light carbonation.
Smells of grapefruit and herbal notes. A drop of honey perhaps.
Taste of hops up front, more herbal then citrus on the palate. Some malty sweetness comes through mid-palate, then finishes with more bitterness.
Generally very well-integrated with medium body, but there's a hint of aqueousness on the finish.
Serving type: on-tap

From notes on 7/16/14 at Hopleaf in Chicago, IL
Tap in pint glass
A: Translucent amber. Drinking this side-by-side with Zombie Dust. This has more of a straw color, while Zombie dust has a more copper color. Off white thin head.
S: Relatively muted. Both the hops and malt. Slight piney notes of hops
T: More of a malt presence than Zombie Dust. The finish is dry. No up front single hop presence like ZD.
M: Well carbonated. Medium bodied. Even finish. Extremely crisp and clean.
D: Very drinkable. Nice brew. No overpowering bitterness from hops. More of a malt presence than ZD like bread and biscuits. Does not seem to showcase a particular hop like other APAs. Just an extremely all around well made beer. More even keeled than ZD and overall a better beer.
Serving type: on-tap
