On tap at the Gage in the Loop, into a tulip

A: pale golden peach, thin 1 finger head
S: clean grassy piney bitterness, pale bready malts
T: like the nose, with a little more dankness developing around the grassy hops and maybe a touch more citrusy grapefruit; stays fairly dry throughout.
M: crisp, dry, a little more chewy than most pales, great bitterness that tends to keep me from trying to get too cozy or comfortable.

Overall: I always pick up some of this when I'm in range. Distinctive taste profile that really hits some of my favorite notes.

This is a bona fide Chicago favorite. Hop forward APA with citrus/floral notes and a solid malt backbone. Great bitter finish that lingers on the tastebuds. One of my ’go to’ beers.

16 oz can, date on the case was 12/9/2014 If I recall. Fresh

A: Hazy gold. Tons of sticky lacing. Excellent retention.

S: Smells like a great hop forward pale. Piney, grassy, citrusy but with a nice light toasty malt backbone.

T: Follows the nose, but even better. A fantastic pale ale that benefits from a generous dry hop.

M: Good carbonation. Low alcohol keeps this thing clean, no heat.

O: A Chicago staple and for good reason. One of my favorite pale ales. Outstanding beer.
