Thanks to dunt for sending me this as part of my Fantasy Baseball winnings.
It's been a long time since I've reviewed a beer...but I'm glad I choose this pale ale to break my silence.
Poured into a pint glass, with a thick cream colored head. Chunky and thick, this foam was not going anywhere. Took a few minutes to finish the pour. A beautiful orange-amber color with some light lacing rounds out the first impression.
For a pale ale, this has a strong piney and citrusy nose. You get the hops up front, and it's wonderful. Grapefruit and a little lemon.
The taste continues the trend with strong floral and citrus notes, with a bitter kick. Malty on the finish.
Smooth with light carbonation, easy going down.
Overall, a solid APA, probably one of my favorites to date. Daisy Cutter can stand up to a lot IPA's out there, and it's something I'd like to have on tap next time I'm in the windy city.

Pours hazed golden with a nice white head that thins. Lacing sticks.
The smell is of robust citrus with some pine, hint of floral notes. Some bready/pale male mixes in.
The big citric notes stay just ahead of the biscuity malt and bready notes. Most of the bready notes are from the firm malt backing, some have a yeast character. The combination works well, though. Finishes with a bitter bite.
It is smooth despite the raw bite in the finish.
This is an enjoyable, hop-forward American Pale Ale. I'm glad a bartender at a local pub brought two pint-sized cans back from his trip to Chicago for me!
