Poured can contents in a chalice...

A - Solid in color, with decent amount of carbonation on pour. Color was a medium amber.

S - Was a great hint of an IPA, with noticeable hop. Smell seemed to stay consistent throughout the enjoyment of the beer.

T - Not heavy but a malt taste, with the hop after kick. I do se where others taste the "pine" as well. Love this beer taste.

M - Though there is a lot going on in this beer the mouth feel wasn't overwhelming or heavy in my opinion very smooth on the palette.

O - One of my favorite IPA I have had the pleasure to try, it truly is my go to IPA, and lucky enough enough to be local that it ca be. Would def recommend it!!

Thanks to dunt for sending me this as part of my Fantasy Baseball winnings.

It's been a long time since I've reviewed a beer...but I'm glad I choose this pale ale to break my silence.

Poured into a pint glass, with a thick cream colored head. Chunky and thick, this foam was not going anywhere. Took a few minutes to finish the pour. A beautiful orange-amber color with some light lacing rounds out the first impression.

For a pale ale, this has a strong piney and citrusy nose. You get the hops up front, and it's wonderful. Grapefruit and a little lemon.

The taste continues the trend with strong floral and citrus notes, with a bitter kick. Malty on the finish.

Smooth with light carbonation, easy going down.

Overall, a solid APA, probably one of my favorites to date. Daisy Cutter can stand up to a lot IPA's out there, and it's something I'd like to have on tap next time I'm in the windy city.

Pours an attractive amber color with good cap of white froth, decent lacing. Scent contains strong floral notes along with solid grapefruit, splashes of pine and tropical fruits and a faint hints of sweet malt... i've had dIPAs that have a weaker nose. Taste continues with the strong hop presence, grapefruity and floral hops the star, splashes of other citrus, light tropical fruits and a malt base that is firm enough to let itself be known without being too powerful. Medium bodied, lightly dry finish. Fantastic pale ale that is a class leader and more potent in scent and taste than many IPAs.

If the country were Beer Geeks this would be what you see in coolers around the country at tailgates and BBQs. This isn't a knock at all on this beer. Actually it's quite the opposite. This is my favorite session beer I've had. For the style it's perfect and has it's own unique hop profile to set it apart from others. The main thing I like about Daisy Cutter is how refreshing and fresh it tastes. I understand fresh taste can be because they don't distribute very far so it's always actually fairly fresh. That being said I have bought it by the case before and even as the hops mellow a tad with age its still just as refreshing and retains a unique fresh quality. This beer is my always stocked in the fridge as a go to when in need of a great drinking beer. I enjoying drinking it out of the tall boy can sometimes too.. it reminds of the days drinking Old Pyle watching Cubs games.

P.S. it smells so good.. smell it.. just smell it.. mmm.. that was nice right
