A pretty copper-colored beer. Medium-sized light tan head with a little lace.
Mostly a sweet malt aroma. Tiny bit of citrus.
Lots of caramel in the taste. Just a hint of grapefruit.
Medium-bodied. More malt forward than I expected.

A: Bright gold color with an airy head.
S: Very nice aroma! Light malts and a load of fruity, citrusy hops.
T: Well-balanced flavor--lot of hop taste up front and good bitterness, but it backs off after a moment, leaving some sweet malt to linger around. Finish isn't dry, as I expected.
M: Lighter body than one expects from a >6% beer. Quite drinkable.
O: Decent effort from Goose Island, one of their better beers in recent years.

Pours an earthy red out of the bottle. Very little head to speak of, and aromatically speaking, lots of pine and citrus. This is more malt-forward than I expected, with noticeable caramel sweetness, but not a bad pale

Came from from church and cracked the last of three I had. Enjoyed this one immensely and I think it's one I could drink again.

Props for the Idaho connection. Hops lean towards the resinous side, woody and astringent. Amber body with adequate airy head. Slightly fruity nose, grapes, wood. Taste is malt (mildly sour) with some dry hop bitterness. A SN APA this is not....more of a sipper

Part of a variety 12 pack $14.99 Times Supermarket. Copper amber color, hoppy taste, medium mouthfeel, just slightly bitter, smooth taste, overall a great beer that I would drink more of.

12 oz bottle poured into a Savor snifter. Bottled August 12, 2015. Bottle says should remain brewery fresh for 180 days, and we are within that range.

Pours a clear amber color with a finger of sticky foam that persists. Aroma has a faint floral, perfumey hoppiness. Flavor is nicely balanced between sweet crystal malt flavor and a tea-like hop flavor. Finishes smooth with a pleasant bitterness.

This is a fine, if unremarkable, beer. Well balanced and drinkable. 6.2% ABV packs a punch but doesn't come off as boozy at all. A solid B.
