I picked this up at the Jewel/Osco store in Glendale Heights, IL as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99, making this single 12oz brown bottle $1.67. No freshness date.

The beer poured a clear golden/amber color and made a fluffy white 1½-finger white head. The head lasted about a minute before fading to a thin white cap, and it left some decent lacing.

Big grapefruit hop aroma.

Heavy grapefruit and orange peel bitterness hits right away. There is a bready maltiness underneath that gets stronger as it warms and helps with balance and adds some sweetness. The bitterness returns in the finish and it lingers a bit in the aftertaste.

Light to medium bodied with higher than average carbonation.

Not a big fan of this one, but if you're a big hophead, you might like it more than I did.

BOD 038 14. Clear light amber (golden) pour. Massive thick head with excellent lacing and retention. Nice nose of citrus, mostly grapefruit and orange but sweet tropicals are also quite noticeable, coupled with a light spruce over a slight biscuit sweetness. Medium bodied with a nice slick texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is a complex blend of hop flavor that leaves the sweet biscuit in the background. It begins as a tropical blend with grapefruit in the forefront, then flows into a grapefruit / orange rind like bitterness. As the bitterness subsides, a touch of biscuit sweetness evolves that highlights the orange hop component. The finish is tart with a burst of effervescence that leaves a slight rind like lingering bitterness. An outstanding well crafted pale ale.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is biscuity malts and grassy, slightly metallic, hops.

The flavor is sweet biscuity malts with a pretty big grassy hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

Overall, an OK pale ale with good bitterness. The biscuit malt and grassy hops aren't my thing though.
