16oz can poured into a snifter. Canned 10/10/13 (very fresh!). My friends have raved about this beer, very excited to try.

A - Very nice golden-orange in color. Two finger white head. Wonderful lacing throughout

S - HUGE hop aroma, amazing! Mild citrus, very piney.

T - Slightly bitter, hoppy taste right off the get go. Followed by a softer, sweeter malt backbone that really balances it out. Not really getting the "bready" malt that others have described

M - Definitely on the lighter side. Great carbonation. Left me with a dry bitter taste, in a good way of course.

O - Very good Pale Ale. Will definitely be picking some up the next time I'm around Chicago. Could see myself enjoying on many-a-summer days.

I was blessed to hook up with a cigar smoking buddy, traded some cigars for this beer. A whole four pack to be exact it pours a perfect copper slightly hazed glowing orange hue with a bright white head. Aroma has floral citrus hop notes with ample malt fresh sliced bread. As it warms up more orange slices with a bit of crush aspirin and orange zest makes it's way into my nares, a good combo with the ample tame sweetness of the balancing malt character. Flavor wise it hits the palate with enough hops to keep this hop head interested, great citrus zest bitterness floral notes with a sweet honey biscuit malt to bring it home into a balance. Hops shine through to the finish, nice bone dry finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied ample smooth natural carbonation, cans are the way to go for these guys. Overall drinkability is great sessionable crazy good stuff, I can't wait to get more. I shared one can drank two on arrival and saved one for a review it went so fast!!!
