Pours an lighter amber color with good clarity and decent head retention. Some minor legs but good overall.
The nose is hoppy. On the level of an IPA hoppy. Big citrus notes with noticeable fruity undertones. Specifically grapefruit and a touch of tangerine. Some minor yeast notes. A touch of esters and a light alcohol note. No real malt notes to back it up.
The taste is hop forward as well. Big citrus and grapefruity notes. This is accentuated by the limited body and malt presence. Would like some sweetness as the bitterness really attacks the palate and continues into the finish. Some minor caramel but limited. The bitterness also leaves a bit of an astringency to the finish as well. Some lingering hop notes but fights with the bitterness and is out of balance.
The body is limited. I would like to see more balance here. Carbonation is good. Overall a very nice hop up front character that rivals legitimate IPA's, but would like to see more balance from the bittering hops and maltiness.

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!
