On tap at piece. Look is nice medium orange. Small is light citrus hops. Taste brings a nice hop punch but something is missing. It is close to great but doesn't get there. Feel is fine. Overall ok but I'm not racing back

Served in a nonic pint glass at the brewpub.

Cue The Band. This stuff pours a lightly cloudy amber-straw topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises mandarin orange, tangerine zest, and light wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, though the fruit comes in rindier, resulting in a more bitter finish. The body straddles the line between hefty light and light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation, a fluid feel, and a dry finish. Overall, a nice pale, though I believe that had the taste truly followed the smell (what with the brightly fruity hops) things would have turned out a bit more positively for me... Still ain't half bad, though...

2/19/16 Chicago (16 oz $6 draft pour, nonic glass at Piece Brewery). One of my favorite songs, and an excellent beer. Cloudy golden brown pour with thin white head and lacing prevalent. Grass and lemon scent. Somewhat bitter hops balanced against citrus and lemon taste. Pleasant drinking, medium carbonation, crisp and clean finish. Overall very good offering.

Enjoyed on tap at Piece. Served in a nonic pint.

A: Pours a chilled amber color with a thin white head forming on the pour. Recedes slowly to a thin ring leaving behind some lace.

S: Citrus with some light cracker malt backing. A hint of sweetness and dried grass.

T: More like the nose, but a touch of lingering bitterness which broke up the sweetness from the malts. Slightly dank as well with a kiss of citrus.

M: Extremely crushable. I could destroy a growler and then some. Light bodied with a medium carbonation and a very clean finish.

O: An enjoyable APA. Not in the upper echelon of APA's that I've had, but a great local APA that is extremely drinkable. I'll put this in the Daisy Cutter category. It's good and I'll definitely have a pint when it's back on, but I'll shoot of a Zombie Dust over either.

On tap at Piece Brewery and Pizza. Nice ale that went down easy with our two pies. Fun spot for my birthday dinner with Brad and Kirsten. Good times.
