This is an enjoyable pale ale. I had heard alot of references to it and had high hopes, it did not disappoint.
A: Pours a solid cream white head with substantial resin and lacing. Orange to amber in color.
S: Citrus, grapefruit and lemons.
T: The malt comes through more than I expected from this pale ale. It is a malt forward pale with substantial bittering that follows all the way to the end.
M: Pockets start to tingle and the wash is zingy from the carbonation.
O: I stand behind, my favorite IPA is brewed by Surly out of Minnesota, and I think they styled on this beer. Still take the surly first, but this is a close second.

A - Pours on the dark side of amber. Seemed high carbonated... I had to pour and let it settle down then pour again. But it has a beautiful off-white/tan head to it.
S - I smell a little hops, malt and fruit. Not a bad combo and pleasant.
T - delicious hoppiness but not an insane amount. Had a nice malt backbone with stoned fruit taste.
M - Very crisp and not heavy at all. Once it calmed down it had the right amount of carbonation.
O - It would be a staple in my rotation if I could get it more often. A solid american pale ale here.

Pretty good looking, brown to amber and clear with a one finger head and sparse lace.
Hoppy smell with plenty of caramel malts and fruitiness.
Taste is really hoppy and very delicious. Great malt background and light fruits, plus plenty of pine and a little citrus.
Mouthfeel is great, easy to drink yet crisp and hoppy with a nice bite.
Great beer, I'd love to drink it all the time if I could!

A- A nice amber color with one finger white head. Very nice lacing.
S- A lot of malt stands out in the aroma. Some hops behind.
T- Always a good drinker. Smooth almost rye flavor leading up to the hop hit. Piney and delicious. Nicely balanced.
M- Crisp. Very nice. Doesn't leave any tongue burn but nice for an APA especially one that's so readily available in Chicago.
O- It's legit. It's a go to when the other's aren't there but it's also something that if pressed I would be seeking out.

On tap from Clevelands own Bier Markt- served in a pint glass. Had a one finger head and great retention and lacing. Poured a dark copper color with its foam being a sort of bone-white. Smell makes it immediately apparent that this is a fiendishly hoppy beer- I smell the citrusy notes that I've come to associate with cascade hops. That taste measures up to the smell- hops from beginning to end and rounded out with a nice medium light body. The mouthfeel is wonderful as well- a little oily from the hops and medium carbonation make it very drinkable. I would get this all the time if it was available to me.
