Awktoberfest (322) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 5, 2013
This does not stand out above the rest. It really doesn't even blend in... A little hop aroma but doesn't go anywhere...kind of reminds me of spitfuls instigator ipa... Both these new Chicago breweries have oobs of potential but need to put out more thoughtful products and lower there price point as they can not at this time compete with what many others are doing..got to give me something with this ipa.... Just eeeh.... I can't wait til they improve and I bet they will... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (2683) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2015
On tap at the brewery as part of the house tour for our club. (UKG) Dispensed to a logoed pint glass, showing a clear & bright, deep, orangey gold color, with a presentable & fairly lasting head of off white/light tan froth, and good cling to the spots & strands of lacing. The nose started with subtle dankness, then citrus as grapefruit & orange, and considerable malt sweetness. Better than medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste presented a hop bitterness that was moderately strong, lingering, citrusy, earthy, and rind-like, with caramelly malt sweetness that almost overwhelmed the hop, leaving a flavorful but somewhat under attenuated impression, imo.

arminjewell (7036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Pour on tap, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, orange, grapefruit, some pine, grass, hints of spice in there, pretty hop forward. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, slight tropical fruit into some grass, into some caramel, biscuit, finishing fairly bitter, dry.

Darker than the average ipa. Malty aroma. Orange flavor on the front, malty and dry finish.

Solid IPA. Nothing particularly out of the ordinary but delivers a very reasonable experience.

Piney, citrus notes with a firm malt backbone. On tap pours a deep golden color with white head. A very flavorful American IPA full of dank hop notes and a bitter finish.

Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is minerally crisp, sharp carbonation. Light layer of creamy malt with a touch of sweetness on the back end. Hops are beguiling mix of mild skunk, light pine and mellow tropical fruits with all the elements in good balance. Finishes smoother with the creamy malt becoming more prominent and the hops turning somewhat minty. A very nice IPA that doesn’t slap you round the chops but has plenty of good hop flavour. Super drinkable.

BBB63 (6299) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bomber bottle: Looks pretty enough... Nice pineapple and rind character along with some faint dank undertones. A touch of earthy yeast and bready malt. Drinkable but easily forgettable.

Christpuncher (1569) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2014
I really like this ipa. From Chicago begyle brewery, this one is crushable. Nice blend of hopps and citrus. Had on a bomber at home to celebrate a huge sale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bomber. Pours a dark reddish hazed amber with a creamy off white head. Aroma is very floral, with spicy vine, shallot, grass and spruce notes. There are some pine and a fair amount of caramel and toffee notes as well. Flavor balanced, with medium bitterness and mild caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, slightly below average carbonation. It’s an interesting take on an IPA and works for the most part.
