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."

Bottles shared by the Ale Syndicate guys. Pours a paler gold, good clarity. White head. Nose is fresh hops, kind of old school. Citrus and resin, toasty malt. Straightforward, in a good way. Low floral. On tasting, sharp and overbearing bitterness. Medium-low sweetness. Crisp and clean but the bitterness is too aggressive/harsh. Tone that back and the balance will come together.

Nothing to complain about here, this is a sessionable IPA with a balanced malt profile of light caramel and floral citrus notes. Finishes with a backbone of mildly spicy hops. Feels a bit thin for the style, but easy-drinking and pleasant.

Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is plenty of fruity hop aromas. Flavor is again a nice fruity hop with some caramel malt in the backround that stays out of the way. Decent but nothing overly exciting. I don’t know what hops are used and they are just kind of there instead of bringing more of a juicy hop to the forefront.

Tap at Miller’s in Chicago. Copper with medium white head. Crisp and clean aroma. Nice balance, not too hoppy. Some malt finish. Well balanced tasty beer.

Golden red color with a white head. Hops and malt aroma. Balanced but more malt than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it in tap on at Owen and Engine. Pours a soft orange hue with a thin white whisper of a head, not much of nothing of an aroma , with a better Tanguay above-average shitty taste. Eh, it will get you drunk.

On tap, poured into a shaker. The beer is clear and oily with an orange orange amber hue topped by a dense, white head that lightly laces the glass and has a moderate retention. The aromas are grassy with supporting orange zest notes and a light crust and caramel that starts mellow, but strengthens late. In the end, it settles on oranges, clove, and bread crust. The taste is a balanced bitter and sweet at levels slightly higher than medium. The beer is smooth and slick with a soft fuzz head and a medium caramel-honey body with supporting notes of citrus zest that finishes grassy and slight burnt with a cloying caramel and toast character that cleans up quickly to leave a clean resin and light orange aftertaste.

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.
