Bought a 4-pack of cans for $12.00 after a Half Acre event during PBW at Local 44 bottle shop. Tall boy can. No package date. Poured into a Sam Adams lager glass for review.
Appears a relatively clear golden yellow with nice carbonation and fluffy white head. Perhaps a tiny amount of chill haze going on. Smells of strong Amarillo hops, tangerine & orange rind. The hops hit you in nose the second you crack the can open. Very nice. After the hops fade, I think I get the faintest smell of a metallic quality. I'm not picky at all about this as I think this is the first time I noticed this from a craft can.
Tastes light & refreshing with nice pine & citrus hop bite. Ample bitterness lingers on the back of the tongue. Great hop flavor - could pass as a West Coast pale ale.
Definitely a strong offering from a new brewery to me. I'm now pissed I didn't know about them sooner when I was in Chicago or else I would've made sure to visit the brewery. Oh well - next time.
