On tap at Prairie Moon in Evanston - July 12. The following day I stopped in for lunch and apparently killed the keg. Sorry everyone. Looks like the only three places that ever got this were the tap room at FFF, the Hopleaf and Prairie Moon. I guess I'm lucky.
APPEARANCE: Medium copper in color. Not a ton of lacing, but a nice, thick and fluffy white head rested on top. A very pretty and bright looking beer.
SMELL: Lots of citrus in the nose especially lemon. This one was certainly a sniffer as I kept sticking my nose back in the glass throughout the experience.
TASTE: Malty, sweet, a touch smoky and a whole lot of citrus. Again, the lemon flavor was strong, but some subtle pine and grapefruit was also noticeable.
MOUTHFEEL: The Shark Pants seems sticky at first, but it is relatively dry and not mouthcoating at all. A very well carbonated beer as well.
OVERALL: My notes just say "really good". And after having the good fortune to try this a second time, I have to agree with my initial assessment. It is a really good beer. I hope there's some left out there for a few more of you BAs to try.
Serving type: on-tap

My purposely vigorous pour gets me an inch and a half of wavy yellow bread head. Tons of sticky lace is left behind as the head recedes oh so slowly. Body is a murky amber orange. Very appropriate for the style in terms of looks.
Nose is a fragrant mix of bready sweet malts supported buy fruity and citrus surrounded hops. Really nice and well presented from a smell standpoint. Very appetizing.
The first sip brings a pillowy soft body that really hugs the palate. Such a nice balance of hops and malts are a perfect marriage of drinkability. Starts with fruit bread sweetness that is light and crisp. This is made to be not to heavy by the balance of hops. These hops dry out the sweetness and add a very well needed bitterness that hangs on through the finish of this brew.
The flavors really ride a roller coaster on the taste buds and it is a fun ride.
Mouthfeel is dry and crisp with a sweet cracker finish. This is a wonderful beer that I wish I had more easy access to. I still think this is a bit of a misunderstood style for most of the hop heads out there.
