So glad to see these in cans, maybe now Illinois has their very own bragable beer in cans.
A: Massive massive head, its a struggle just to keep it in my glass. Poured very slowly and very carefully I can really start to appreciate the look of this beer after a dodgy start. Head is just like I remember it on draft: bone white and incredibly dense. Color is a crystal clear golden honey until I finally get around to splashing the yeast in the glass and it takes on a lovely glowing golden amber.
S: Heavy on the flowers and a clover honey sweetness backed by a healthy dose of pine and just the slightest touches of malt sweetness creeping in through the back door. Reminds me quite a bit like Gumballhead in places.
T/MF: Surprisingly malty considering the aromas I was picking up; jammy bread with a nutty earthiness. Finish gives a better idea of the hoppiness that this beer. Yet getting the rest of the beer into the glass it beings to take on the characteristics I remember from times on tap. Quite a dry feel from start to finish, light and crisp with a biting finish. Flavors of clover honey, toasted whole grain bread, touches of pine needles, whole grains, nuts and earth. Surprisingly more balanced than I remember.
D: Well my can is nearly gone and I feel like I just opened it. Not as hoppy as I remember but very well balanced and an all around great beer, something to be sought out for sure.
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
