On draught at Emmett’s Brewpub’s new Oswego, IL location. My server had no idea what it was, but it was good. Rich golden-amber color. Thick head. Good hoppy nose. Lots of hops on palate, a strong pale ale.

Had this one on draught in Oswego, Illinois. Clear, medium orange pour with a delightfully thick, foamy white head, nosy and carmelly in the nose with a floral taste throughout, bitter but finishing very alcoholic. Good!

On tap at the pub. A light brown IPA with a tan head. Hoppy aroma with some bitterness in the taste. but more in the aftertaste.

Peaches, hops, pretty simple taste... fruit, slight bitterness from northwest hops. mild with a thin body.

Draft. This is their original pre-racer 5 IPA. Reddish copper color with a nice off-white head. Lower hop aroma. Nice hop flavor - grapefruit and summer fruits - with some caramel backing. Lower bitterness and aroma than Racer 5.

Tap @ Barclay’s. Pours a darkish amber color with a fairly small eggshell head. Not super hoppy, but nice bitterness, a bit maltier than a lot of IPAs that I’ve had. Tasty, satisfying, but not quenching in the sense that more bitter, piney IPAs are. Flavor was clean and well balanced with the malt profile present in the beer. I’d drink this again, but I was expecting something a little different.

Beer poured a nice rich amber with a luxurious, building, frothy cream colored head that absolutely refused to fade away. It left thick, creamy lacing along the glass, tiny bubbles that defied gravity and simply didn’t break. I really couldn’t ask much more from an IPA’s appearance.. The second glass filled an even bigger, more cheerful head. Noticeable brewer’s yeast floaties, but I had to have the whole bottle! Smell was good, woodsy and spicy with crisp tones. Taste equally good; The hops flood the palate with crisp, spicy, bitter flavors that are balanced very well by the sweetness of the malt. I’m not a hop head, but appreciate this style of beer and think that this is an extremely well-rounded, full-bodied example of an IPA.

A good IPA. Tan and orange color, slight cloudiness, with a citrus and hop aroma. Crisp hoppy and citrus taste and properly bitter. Would have liked a little more hops, but a good IPA, nonetheless.

Hmmm. Rocky, pocky head. Cloudy lacy white to the eye. Does a bear poop in the woods? Not if he had ont of these. Very good IPA. Some citrus. Hops. Bitter. Almost carmel unfiltered feel on the tongue. Very good. Try the Rye, instead, for the $$$.
