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.

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.

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.
