Municipal IPA is an all-Crystal ale, giving it a floral aroma and slightly spicy flavor. Well-balanced and refreshing, it’s everything we think a good IPA should be."

Golden yellow pour with a nice off-white head. Aroma is flora. If an aroma can be described as sticky- this one is just that. Taste is hop flavor- sticky, tasty during the whole drink. Well balanced, very flavorful 6.2% offering. Great lacing.

6 pack, 12 oz bottle. Wonderful hop smell. Far more Amber in appearance than usual ipa. Floral at the front, clean finish with very little aftertaste.

Bottle from Binny’s. Very well made IPA. Slightly hazy orange pour with a huge white head. Soft floral and melon aroma. Taste is sweet melon, floral - bold flavor notes with very soft bitterness. Easy on the tongue. Quite crushable. Nice brew.

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2014
A very solid IPA. Draft pint at Logan Theater. Ripe tropical melon with a bready backbone and floral notes. The hops are the star here, and this beer allows them to take control without leaving the beer unbalanced. At 6%+ this is very sessionable.

Light clear orange-gold. Reasonably ample white frothy head. Light sweet, melon nose, some floral notes, some fresh hay. Light bitterness, some nice malty sweetness. Lighter body, reasonably acidic. Medium carbonation. Very nice, quite well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 Crystal clear new copper with a big white head. Lots of carbonation and tons of lacing. Lots of pine, spice, floral, apricot and grapefruit in the aroma. The flavor is just as great, with really nice balance and lingering pine and spice hop character. High carbonation lends a soft mouthfeel. Was pleasantly surprised by this one.
