12oz can from Binnys in Highland Park. Pours an unclear orangey yellow with an off-white head leaving some lacing. Aroma has sweet fruits and malts, some citrus, light pine. Taste is of orange juice, sweet malts, some tangy pine and some spices. Medium bodied and a bit oily. Finishes sweetly bitter, and tangy. Solid pale, without much to have it stand out. 13.4

Who would think from Illinois such good breweries would pop up. Got a can of this from my son and thought I would rate it. Surprised to see the high rating here but can concur this truly is a great IPA/APA. Aroma is very pleasant smell of hops presentation above average taste great and lays on the pallet. Would love to have it again.

For whatever reason, I figured this would just be some random mediocre garbage but I am clearly dumb. It is random very good garbage and definitely holds itís own against the best Illinois hoppy pale beers, including much more talked about breweries. Itís slightly hazed orange golden w/ a thin, fine bubbled head and little spots of lace. This has a huge, juicy hop nose to it. Itís very fruity w/ a touch of herbal character and pine needles. Iíd probably call this an IPA at its alcohol level and it definitely delivers tons of hop flavor and aroma. It is just a touch sweet and maybe just a teensy bit heavy feeling for the style but it does have a good whallop of bitterness in the finish to balance. This one surprised and impressed me and I will definitely pick this up quite often when hop cravings hit.

Bottle at Paulís for Andy and Maxís Fantasy Football winnings tasting. Pours a hazed gold with a very large white head. Musky and full of citrus, bretty. Medium bodied, spicy musk, a bit of citrus. Tastes like this may have gotten infected, and it worked out super well. Long musk and funk, lingering citrus.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle at Paulís. Poured like 90% head at first then settled to a bronze body with lots of clinging bubbles and a pillowy white head. Aoma is not good, band aids, cherry, lemon. Flavor is slightly better than the aroma, but not by much. Body is actually a bit falt, probably from losing all the carbonation to produce the initial ridiculous amount of head, medium mouthfeel. Meh pretty bad.
