This is a great pale ale. Nice and hoppy and refreshing. I love the dank, grassy notes. It is crisp and refreshing and makes me think of cutting the grass.

It's a bit hoppy for a pale ale, but the body is just right. It is dry, crisp and refreshing. It's a great beer to drink while firing up the grill.

If only I lived closer to Chicago, this would be my everyday beer.

My go to beer and in my opinion the best American pale on the market right now. Great floral citrusy nose with just the right amount of hops. At the same time this beer is balanced is not too alcoholic to drink more than one, at the end of the day this is a great beer that has great finish and mouth feel.

16oz. can courtesy of Callmecoon. Served in a tulip nonic. Pours a pale, golden orange with a semi-hazy clarity and a fluffy 1.5 inch bright white head. Head eventually settles into a 1/8th skim with delicate, textured clusters of lacing present during the tasting. Nose expresses citrus rind and pleasant floral notes. Taste consistent with nose - citrus pops a bit more than the floral character - there's also a bit of a biscuity quality that cuts through the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light in body with an even carbonation and a bit of acidity that just tickles the palate. Overall, a very drinkable and quite enjoyable APA. I'd make this a summer staple if it were accessible.

Poured into a Belgian style stemmed glass.

A: Light hazy orange with a finger and a half of white head. Sticky lacing.

S: Very interesting aromas. Bready malts come through more than anything else. Very floral. Almost an outdoorsy farm funk aroma (in a pleasant way.)

T: Crisp crystal malt flavor with a refreshing and light bready/doughy flavor. Floral hops comes bursting out too. Hints of oranges come through at the end. This is leaning closer to the IPA side, but with the easy drinkability of an APA.

M: Medium carbonation with a clean finish. Very refreshing.

O: Outstanding APA. Such an easy drinking and flavorful beer to enjoy after a day of working outside.

Poured from bomber into dimple glass mug. Pours a hazy orange color with a smaller white head. The aroma is all about the hops: resiny, tropical fruit, pineapple and mango with earthy notes sneaking through here and there. The flavor has more of the same; tropical fruits, grapefruit, resiny and mango create a strong lasting bitterness. Enough of a malt backbone to provide a good base. Decent lasting medium mouthfeel.
