This India Pale Ale moves from heady hop aromas to a long, clean finish. A spicy hop character is expertly balanced by a soft malt backbone for a complex ale with rich full flavor. Enjoy the ride!

Pours clear golden with a thick white head and a pine aroma. There is a tasty caramel malt flavor nicely balanced with the hop bitterness.

fraternie (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 A very sessionable IPA at a reasonable price, this beer opens with malty aromas and a clean hop note. Sweet caramel malt dominates the body with understated notes of grapefruit citrus, while piney hops creep in on the back of the palate. Finishes with a bit of a metallic aftertaste.

Bottle from the Natomas BevMo. Pours golden amber with a creamy white head. Light cat pee aroma with a little mild roast malt. Med body. Flavor is citrusy hop over caramel. It’s not strongly flavored, but it is rather flavorful. Goes a bit floral, ending more towards ESB.

Anticlimactic 1000th. Aroma is lemon furniture polish, pine sea breeze. Appeaerance is Cloudy yellow, burnished shoulders. Nice active carb, lingering thin sponge. Flavor is salt, clean hopping, neutral refreshment, near crisp dried pine branches prime for kindling.

~Caramel bready aroma with floral and spicy hop. Some berry like fruitiness as well ~Pours a cloudy orange amber color with big lasting creamy white head. ~Earthy hop flavor with light caramel sweetness and bread. ~Medium full bodied with medium CO2, bitter woody hop resiny finish. ~Got this on sale for $10 for a case of 24. Excellent deal. Not a typical IPA. I enjoy this one though and won’t have a problem drinking all 24 bottles.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a pale golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is mostly the piney hops with some grassiness to it, a bit herbal plenty of caramel malt backbone character. Flavor starts with the piney and caramel balanced with one another gaining a touch of a blah metallic note before a lightly bitter finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Not a great IPA by any means but sessionable and an easy drinking into IPA

12oz bottle 3/4/11 Batch 00073 (Whole Foods Naperville)-54° in Shaker-Pours a clear golden with a nice one finger off white head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of hops, malt, and some grass. This medium bodied brew is easy to drink and not too bad.

12oz brown bottle. Pours dark gold with some haze floating around. Thin white cap that stays throughout the glass. Nose has caramel, grapefruity hops. Taste has some candy sweetness, grapefruity and piney hop flavours. Slightly bitter end, finished with lasting lemon, grapefruit and a pine hops. Medium body, decent carbonation. Pretty average IPA.

355ml bottle pours a light golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel and not much else. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a mild spicy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Just not enough hops to be an IPA, barely even a pale ale. Not recommended, as it is just too darn sweet.
