This beer and brewery are new to the Chicago market. Got this bottle from a friend who works for the distributor. 12oz brown bottle with a best before date of 3/26/13.

The beer poured a crystal clear golden/orange color that left a 1½-finger creamy white head on top. Retention was good and the beer left lots of whispy patches of lacing on the glass.

Flowery and citrusy hop aroma with a touch of malt underneath.

Deliciously hoppy. Big grapefruit and orange peel flavor with plenty of bitterness for a pale ale. A mild caramel sweetness is used for balance.

Medium bodied with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is moderate.

This is a really good tasting pale ale. Can't wait to try other offerings from this brewery.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Deschutes Brewery branded pint glass

Pours a golden amber with orange hues. Fluffy one and half finger head, light thin, wispy lacing, above average retention. Light citrus, lightly sweet, some grain notes and fresh green tea. Mild tropical fruit, hints of grapefruit rind, bready, but light malt. Finishes refreshing, crisp and dry.

Extremely well-balanced and incredibly easy-drinking.
