Visited the old stomping grounds of Lakeview/Lincoln Park for the weekend and managed to grab the last 2 sixers Binny's had. Was so excited.
This is pretty much my favorite beer. Not necessarily what I think is the best, but a beer I could drink every day for the rest of my life. Deep copper with a beautiful three finger head and really awesome lacing. The nose is like wildflowers, grass and pine... smells like a vibrant forest should. Excellent hop flavor right from the beginning the really fires the senses and adds some spice, and the floral flavors accent it very nicely. The malt takes somewhat of a backseat but is there to tie everything together with lingering sweetness. The mouthfeel is pretty standard for a pale ale, but the hoppy tingling and excellent carbonation are exceptional here as well.
