This beer and brewery are new to the Chicago market. Got this bottle from a friend who works for the distributor. 12oz brown bottle with a best before date of 3/26/13.
The beer poured a crystal clear golden/orange color that left a 1½-finger creamy white head on top. Retention was good and the beer left lots of whispy patches of lacing on the glass.
Flowery and citrusy hop aroma with a touch of malt underneath.
Deliciously hoppy. Big grapefruit and orange peel flavor with plenty of bitterness for a pale ale. A mild caramel sweetness is used for balance.
Medium bodied with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is moderate.
This is a really good tasting pale ale. Can't wait to try other offerings from this brewery.
