Pours a bruised/overripe tropical fruit color. Less than generous white cap with low lacing.

A mellifluous tropical blend, sweet base malt and pine.

Love the hop profile giving me bitter hop leaf, pine needle and melded well with semi-sweet malt.

Medium to full bodied. Very smooth as in a Canadien Mist way. Bitter hop, not earthy at all, lingers well in the cranium with alcohol.

How can one come to the Chicagoland area and not fall in love with this having tried it-I would be heart sick to leave this behind. Nothing pretentious or screaming out "look at me!". Fantastic American pale ale and one from FFF to pull the trigger on!
