UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 At Park Tavern in Rosemont. A rather malty IPA, darker in color than many. Piney, herbal and grassy hops. Something tinny in the flavor too? Average IPA. Serving: Tap

Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale amber colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of pine, slight grapefruit, caramel, subtle grain and earthy hops. Taste of pine, resin, slight grapefruit, subtle like peanut butter, caramel and earthy hops. Medium bodied but quite an oily texture. A dry, earthy, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Only a soft, mainly malty aroma but followed up with decent hop character in the flavour. The finish and texture are a little off putting though, it’s ok but not a good IPA.

Floral and citrus aroma, the pour is ridiculous. Pouring a couple of ounces into a 20 oz glass provided me 20 ounces of foam, with no visible beer. There’s a touch of caramel flavor, with either no carbonation in the glass, or completely overcarbonated drinking it from the bottle. This appears to be an infection of a sorts in the bottle, or just a batch with no QA. Every beer in the six pack was showing the same overcarbonation.

Decent beer. Hey, paid a whole $3 a pint while in downtown Chicago to go the the Blackhawks rally. Couldn’t complain with that.

I think this came from a Beer of the Month Club and given to me by a friend. The 12 oz bottle pours a clear copper with a small off-white head and adequate lacing. Nose is floral and citrus hops. Medium in body. The flavor is a bit harsh and the bitterness is not a really nice one. I see the use "special hops". Maybe that is the problem because it was hard to like this very much .

I guess you can’t call this bad per se, but it’s not "good." Astringent aroma. Super-carbonated with a monster, out of control head. Taste is citrus rind and pine hops with an astringency that gets close to unpleasant. The extreme carbonation seems to interfere with the malt balance and there’s very little malt - not balanced at all. I’ve had worse IPAs, but this one is just barely mediocre.

Some sediment on the bottom of this hazy, rust brown brew. Aroma is highly pleasing and unsurprisingly hop foward. Taste is excessively bitter with a drop off where malts should be present to help serve up the hop hit in a pleasant way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stale cereal malts. Musty with strange earthy characteristics. Some very dull caramel notes. Acerbic without notable hop qualities. Light lemon and grass.

Pours a golden hazy Browne with. Light tan head. Aroma is citrus with a light bread note. Taste is sharp citrus blended with more mellow orange grain notes. Finishes dry and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1509) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Copper/red color with a foamy white head that dissipated quickly and left nice lace. Fairly complex hoppy aromas of pine, citrus, and earthiness with caramel coming thorugh more as the beer warmed. Similarly, the hop bitterness up front in the flavor profile was encroached upon by a rich maltiness that became stronger with time. Medium body, minimal carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a heavy malt sweetness in the finish.
