Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz can on June 23, 2017. Canned on 6/2/17. The feel is the real star of the show hear. Smooth creamy mouthfeel without being watery. Recommended.

6-pack from Binny's. Poured from a 12oz can. Hazy golden colored, thin head that dissipated quickly. Smelled predominantly of malt, some hop notes. This is a very smooth, very well balanced pale ale. Not heavy handed on the hops in IBU, malt or ABV. Just a very very well balanced, extremely drinkable, pale ale. Only downside for me was the price point was a little high. Very well done 18th Street.

18th Street is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries. Very unique tasting APA. Balanced perfectly. I guarantee that this beer will become harder to find once more people discover it.

Must try!

A sixer ran me $11.99 USD at a Binny's in Chicago. Brief impression below:

"Pale ale." "Unfiltered."

APPEARANCE: White coloured head is ~1cm in height. Body is a dull dark copper. Lacks vibrance and life, but it's generally appealing and seems well-carbonated.

AROMA: Juicy fruit. Citrus. Fruited bread. Pale malts. Golden raisin. Generic pale malt and 2-row sweetness.

Timid, but pleasant and inviting. Aromatic intensity is subdued. I find no off-notes or booze.

TASTE: Lacks hop pungency, but there's enough hop flavour to keep it interesting...vague fruit, citrusy fruit, subdued pineapple. . Honeyed malt. Slight breadiness. Pale malt. 2-row.

Balance isn't dialed in. Hop profile isn't horribly interesting compared to widely distributed cheaper expressions of the style.

TEXTURE: Unrefreshing. Overcarbonated. Smooth. Wet. Medium-bodied.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, rough, or scratchy.

OVERALL: A hum-ho stab at an oversaturated style with no unique or special characteristics. I wouldn't buy it again (especially not at $2 a can) and I think it's substantially less desirable than a cheaper more widely distributed pale ale like Mirror Pond from Deschutes or Pale Ale from Sierra Nevada, but it's drinkable, and by no means a bad brew. Just an average one.

Appearance - Pours semi transparent light golden color with very sparse white head. Spotty lacing.

Aroma - Great aroma for a pale ale. Light citrus some orange, juicy pineapple very light lemon aroma as well.

Taste - The same citrus as the nose, pineapple, orange and lemon. The kicker here is the light hop flavor it almost makes it pop in your mouth.

Feel - Very light clean crisp. Very easy drinking and well carbonated.

Overall - Easily one of the best pale ales I have had. I would love to have a cooler of these on a summer day. So clean and easy drinking with great flavors.

Poured from undated can into pint glass. It pours a hazy, golden-orange color with a thin, bright white head and attractive lacing. The smell is subdued; light lemon and tangerine with grass and biscuit. The taste, though, is flavorful with sour citrus and some sweet orange or tangerine and grass and cracker. This ale has a pleasant mouth feel with moderate carbonation and an easy drinking 5% ABV Overall, this is a really pleasant APA with distinct, fruity flavors and an appealing mouth feel. It's really well done and I'd definitely seek it out again.
