Draft at shaumburg. Aroma is mostly hops, grassy and floral. Taste is light nitter. Meh, nothing super special here. Drinkable but boring

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the Schaumburg RAM. Okay, maybe itís because Iím chatting with the friendly brewmaster, but Iím really liking this stuff. That and the fact that a sampler "Curl" is $5, no matter how many samples are on it, and I have 10! So this is a derker amber color, and still has a good layer of foam although itís been on the bar a while. Again, my nose was hampered by a cold and restroom soap, so just a general yes on the aroma. A large pine and resin hop note that swims to coat my soft palate. In other words, a hop goblin.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy orange yellow color. Not too red in appearance. Sticky white lacing. Mild lemon peel aroma. Slight earthy palate. Lingering bitter finish yet balanced. Not what I would call a red IPA but nice overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is clear amber with a big white head and great lacing. Somewhat faint aroma - grass, caramel, bread, a touch if grapefruit peel, and earthy hops. Taste is very malty with a hoppy bite on the finish - spicy/dirty hops, light lemon, orange peel, perfume, toasted bread, and biscuit. Medium body with low carbonation. Below average IPA that could really benefit from some dry-hopping.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a pint glass on tap. A dark amber red with very little head. Not much in terms of aroma. Medium hoppiness. Somewhat weak for the style. There is an unpleasant aftertaste that hangs in your mouth.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a clear light brownish red with no head, the aroma is of older hops and malt, the flavor was really off to me, the hops seemed very faded and old and was more sweet than hoppy, really didnít work for me.
