Brewer's notes:
As fall hits and summer fades we throw out one last toast to summer. This beer is about summer today and yesterday, a mindset, an ease...Tasty Waves is the summer session pale that glides in and around your long days soaked in sunshine. It's a 5% cruiser we're putting into 22's and growlers. Put down your ambition and ride these tasty waves while it's hot.

2016-09-28 in Napperville, IL at the Pour House on tap.

Hazy gold with a 2-finger head. Smell is citrus, dank and pine. Nicely bitter finish. More dank than I like in a Pale Ale but tasty nevertheless. Good feel. I like it but would rather have their Daisy Cutter.

On tap, poured into an 8oz tulip. The aroma is a very potent, fresh grapefruit with a light toffee undertone. The beer is a murky, dull orange-yellow hue with a soapy white head that laces well and retains a moderately light ring. The taste is a medium bitter with a supporting, medium sweetness. The beer is oily with a fizzy carbonation and a medium fruity body. The beer is bitter up front with fresh grapefruit and caramel, as well as bread crust. It finishes zestier, with a brighter grapefruit and a grass character. The aftertaste is dry and lightly astringent with remnants of grapefruit, bread crust, and a bit of toffee.
