16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, tangerine, floral, pine, light bread, grass, light citrus rind, and herbal earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of hop notes. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, pineapple, floral, pine, grass, citrus rind, bread, and piney spiciness. Nice amount of citrus and piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus rind, floral, pine, grass, bread, and piney spiciness on the finish for a while. Incredible hoppy flavor complexity and balance; with no cloying flavors present on the finish other than citrus bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a sticky and very crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible pale ale! Huge hoppy flavors with nice complexity; very smooth and crisp to drink. An insanely delicious offering as expected.

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.
