Pours an unfiltered orange color with a white head that leaves some lace behind. The aroma is piney, citrusy and herbal. In the taste, more citrusy tropical notes, solid bitterness and floral touches. Daisy Cutter is an apt name for this bomb of hop flowers. Bitter and resinous, with a dry hop bite and biscuity malt profile. Medium, smoother body with a medium high carbonation. Overall, this is a classic pale ale, better than most IpAs.

On tap at Tiny Lounge in Chicago, about a block from the source.

A: Deep orange in color with two fingers of foamy, off-white head.

S: Fresh cut grass, floral hop character.

T: Light, floral hoppiness melded with a dry, toasty malt backbone that keeps everything in perfect balance.

M: Bitter, effervescent carbonation that seemingly becomes more pronounced as the beer warms.

O: A solid, repeat drinker, and arguably one of the best pale ales coming out of Chicago proper.

Found a two week old case of 16 oz cans a bounds in warrington, PA. As far as true pale ales go, this is about as good as it gets. I say that with FFF zombie dust and alpha king in mind.. Which are both bordering on IPA. Pours a beautiful cloudy golden... Smell off the charts. Taste damn near perfect just a tad weak at the finish(it's only 5.2 percent). Really really good stuff!!

After hearing from friends in the midwest just how great this beer is, I was finally able to try some for myself. And thanks to one of the rising stars of the craft beer community, I was able to buy it locally. J&H Beer on Route 315 in Wilkes-Barre(or Pittston, whatever)- get there soon if you're in NEPA. This beer is just fantastic, it's everything I had hoped it would be. Crisp, clean, refreshing, with a touch of fruit notes at the end. I poured the 16oz can into a snifter and sat on my deck enjoying the evening. A perfect beer for summer.. or anytime!
