look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours hazed golden with a nice white head that thins. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of robust citrus with some pine, hint of floral notes. Some bready/pale male mixes in.

The big citric notes stay just ahead of the biscuity malt and bready notes. Most of the bready notes are from the firm malt backing, some have a yeast character. The combination works well, though. Finishes with a bitter bite.

It is smooth despite the raw bite in the finish.

This is an enjoyable, hop-forward American Pale Ale. I'm glad a bartender at a local pub brought two pint-sized cans back from his trip to Chicago for me!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a pretty clear light orange with fluffy white head. No can date to be seen

Nose: fresh and effervescent- pine and sweet herbals, baked biscuity malt, darkish florals (lavender?), orange rind, some tropical fruits. Very complex

Taste: follows with fresh pine, slight melon, orange, mango, subtle over-ripe pineapple. Sweet bread, some flowers in there, finishes piney and fruity with a touch of green and mint

Feel: light-medium body, a tad watery on the palate, fresh, herbal, green, floral, fruity,

What a great beer. One of my fav pale ales. Hope to get snag some
More my next time through IL
