Complete crap. Calling this an APA is a joke. It tastes like a bland run-of-the-mill lager. No discernable hops. I thought there'd been some mistake, but the bartender assured me that's just what Greenline was. $12 wasted at the airport. Yuck....

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of light grain, but weak. Tastes of piney and floral hops, nice balance. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking. Overall, an above average beer.

This beer used to only be available on tap around the Chicagoland area. It will always taste like a concert or bar to me, and perhaps it would rate higher if you think of it in that context. While technically a Pale Ale, it has a distinctly lager-like quality, and actually reminds me of a slightly fruitier and hoppier version of GI's seasonal Preseason Lager, a Vienna Lager, which this beer's color also resembles. Earthy bitterness on the finish, which suggests a noble hop in the recipe alongside the citrusy American hops. Very sessionable, with bready, caramel malts taking backseat to earthy and tangy hops. Goes well with food and concerts.

This was a complete disappointment. Not hoppy. Not tasty. Super flat and no head at all. Tastes like a flat Budweiser. Someone before said that it was abusive to the consumer and I completely agree. This is down right one of the worst beers I've ever tasted.
