  • A: Bright and hazy, orangey amber, with beige medium size foam of medium duration.

    S: Crisp, clean cirtus blast. First come grapefruit & oranges, next is the pine, then some biscuity notes, and finally a faint wiff of buterscotch.

    T: Good but somewhat different than I had expected. Fresh, slight sweetness, hop bitter, and mild fruit after taste...are my first impressions.

    D: Dry and sophisticated. This smallish brewery in Chicago has had a great reputation since their start, and the sophistication is amped up now 3-4 years in. To me, this is one of their signature brews. And just hard enough to get to be appreciated.

  • Pours clear with a small amount of white foam. Retention is minimal as is the lacing.

    Aroma is big and bountiful with the hops. Pine, fruit, and citrus. Not much malt, if any, comes through. A touch of alcohol comes across.

    Taste is much of the same. Hops, hops, and more hops but mellow compared to the nose. A very delicate taste that has some sweetness up front melded together with pine, citrus, and floral hops. Almost no bitterness to the finish but a small amount of lingering pine and grapefruit on the lips.

    A really light body on this beer but accented by ample carbonation. Alcohol makes a nominal appearance.

    This is my first go at this beer and I am completely and utterly happy with it. Where has this been all my life? Big on the hops but easy on mouth. Doesn't ruin the palate. Enjoy!

  • Pours a Medium muddy amber with a thin white head and nice gooey lacing.

    Aroma is heavy with hops. Rich citrus mango, mixed with pine.

    Medium body with medium carbonation.

    Taste is surprisingly mild compared to the aroma. Very drinkable. Smooth and refreshing. Grassy hops coming out in the taste combined with a mix of citrus and pine. A bitterness on the back end.

    As stated before, very drinkable with the bitterness making you want to keep coming back for more. Smooth and refreshing......Thanks Scot!
