Thanks to graniteskunk! Pours a golden color. White head. Cascade hops are evident from initial aroma followed by some caramel malt, and light yeasty tones. Flavor is hop forward, bitter, fruity, and finishes a bit metallic.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle fresh from Sprecher brewery. Floral hops, golden yellow body with a generous retained white creamy head. Average mouthfeel, with some astringency, but still a good drinker because of the edge and hop profile. Really bitter as the IBU 73 shows. Must try for hopheads and anyone a fan of the bitter or sour camp.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured hazy medium amber with a fluffy, sticky whitish head.. lots of sediment in the glass. The aroma really didnít pick up much.. some soapy hops over nondescript pale malts.. a little rye and some piney hops as it warmed up. The flavor found more of a sticky, syrupy-sweet impression.. sweet molasses, fruity, and pale malts at the core.. bitter on the edges with more earthy hops and spicy rye.. tacky, bitter finish with a little more rye. Light-medium bodied and increasingly bitter/rye-ey as it warmed up.. the malt bill wasnít interesting, and felt kind of cheap, but the rest of it came together aiight.

Aroma of hops, malt and a bit of spice. Light body with flavors of floral hops, sweet malt and a touch of spice. The finish is mildly hoppy with a short earthy aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a dark amber colored brew with a wispy thin white head. The smell is like orange juice with a hint of the rye spice. The taste is fairly spicy with rye and a strong grapefruit kick at the end. The body is fairly light for an IPA. The finish is a little ashy. This is an ok IPA, much better than the other Chameleon beers I have tried.
