Poured from 16-ounce can into a tulip glass. Light golden color, with a thick snow-white head that settled slowly and left plenty of sticky lacing behind. Dank piney and citrusy aromas and flavors, with a lightly sweet malt presence. A little orange juice and grapefruit zest round out the profile. Crisp, dry finish, with just a trace of bitterness lingering on the palate. An excellent "sessionable" pale ale.

16oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Light orange, slightly hazy with tiny bubbles and a two-finger head
S: Grapefruit, floral and herbs
T: Matches the nose with a nice malt backbone
M: Medium-bodied, a nice malt/bitter balance
O: A solid IPA - quite nicely balanced between the hops/malt/alcohol/mouthfeel. Nothing jumps out yet everything is there

Balance is the key here. This beer has hops and it has malt. Hops slightly more than malt. But both are present and put together in a proper manner. The can I have poured is dated 8/23/17... "Dear Diary" is printed by the date. They are opening their new location very soon and I'm pumped.

This beer is extremely agreeable. The amount of crystal/caramel malt in the beer finds a perfect meeting point with the BUs. Hop flavors are floral, citrus and a bit of grass. A Chicago classic.
