Served in a pint glass at Flossmoor Station 3/15/08. Thanks to HeatherAnn for sharing her beer with me!

A: Served a clear, honey-amber color with an off-white head, one-finger high, that leaves some delicate lacing in the glass.

S: Hoppy aromas that veer from citrus to pine (depending on the temp) and a touch of juicy peach.

T: Lightly toasted malt, citrusy/piney hops, tangy apple, and peach.

M: Astringent and refreshingly puckery. Quite hoppy and dry.

D: Refreshing and delicious. Abundantly hoppy coupled with a low abv makes for an excellent session APA!

A crisp and bitter American Pale Ale that has all of the hops you love but less of the alcoholic strength of our Big IPAs. This of this as an IPA Junior. Full of Summit, Amarillo, and Centennial hops. (Dry-hopped)

The color was a nicely hazed orange, with a 1/2" of foam that left little "legs" of lacing on the sides of the glass. Over time the head dissipated to a skim across the surface.

Mellow peach in the first whiff, coupled with herbal resiny hop character, and pale malt.

The flavor was primarily sprucey, herbal, and dry hops, nice light malty base to it. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium bodied, and not as light as expected. 2-3 pints would be no problem in one sitting.
