3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft in Dallas: Beer pours an attractive dark honey color. The aroma is hoppy and floral. Flavor is hoppy, somwhat bitter with some malt for balance. This is a solid IPA. Palate is clean. I enjoy this IPA. Growlerable.

Had this one at the brewpub in Schaumburg, Illinois. Hazy dark orange pour with a thick, fluffy head, profoundly hoppy with piney and citrusy bitterness. Very bitter and very good.

Tap at Dallas location. Average looking amber. Nice subtle spice in the taste. Not much like an IPA at all - like every other beer in this place it was VERY lacking in hops. Still drinkable; ginger was apparent in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught: Light amber brown color. Clear and sparkling. Average, lasting, creamy white head. Excellent lacing. Nutty malts, heavy hop flavors of flowers, herbs, spruce, citrus, and grapefruit. Also tasted of pepper, allspice, coriander, ginger, medicine. Full bidy and oily texture. Lively carbination. Bitter finish. Same hops as TwoRow Hopzilla (Amarillo I think).

Schaumburg. Clear copper in color with a saliva splotch in the center for the head and a creamy off-white wrung on the outskirts. Hoppy aroma jumps out, partnering with herbal traits, lemons and lilies of the valley. Sweet and bitter flavor. Amarillo and cascades are well represented. Tingly, bitter pine traits. Medium to fuller bodied. Very bitter with a nearly chafing finished. Well balanced, and easily this brewpub’s best.

Pint Fishers location arrived in a frozen glass - Aroma is fresh hops and carmel. Pours cloudy orange with a small head and good lacing. Flavor is fresh citrus hops that are nicely balanced with carmel and other malts. Palate is tart and smooth. Refreshing and tasty.
