4.05/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

16 oz can from Tommyguz poured into a Barrelworks Teku

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark copper color with a thick offwhite head

Smell: Once warmed, the beer has a very pungent smell for it's 5.2 abv. Immediate burst of fresh cut grass with some sweetness. Maybe a little tropical fruits, but the grass dominates.

Taste: Immediate taste of grass as well, with a very consistent taste from start to finish. Not much malt to speak of, just a burst of nice hops. Nice burst of flavor, very solid.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is a bit thin for what I would like in a pale ale, but the carbonation is spot on. Very nice overall.

overall: Really good beer. From the moment you open, it is exactly what you expect from the nose, which is a good thing. I would love to have it again, but it didn't knock me off my feet.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear, gold color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hint of earthy malt, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, slight floral hops, and yeast. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Bitterness is too prevalent for my preference. Tastes of earthy malt, citrus hops, slight sweet malt, hint of floral hops, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good appearance, earthy malt dominates both aroma and body, otherwise average pale ale.

Serving type: on-tap

4.33/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.
