3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Caramel malts aplenty surround this IPA’s firm resinous hops, ending up in gripping bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam floats atop the cloudy dark amber.
-The aroma is not as brightly hoppy as I would have liked.
-The caramel malts are almost dominant until the hoppy finish, garnished by crumbly biscuit notes.
-The hops do promote citrusy tips once in a while.
On tap at the Four Queens location.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Clear dark gold with a white head. Big citrus and herbal hop nose, mild caramel. Big hop bite comes immediately, citrusy with a touch of pepper-like notes. Slightly resinous and orange. Amazingly drinkable and a solid brew all around!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Four Queens. Could swear that it was in a large shaker as a 20 oz. serving. Poured a hazy orange/amber color with a 1/2 " of off white foam to the head, and ribbony lacing. The aroma was lightly floral, with orange and grapefruit to follow. The flavor initially presented a pleasant but strong hop bitterness, and then, a good amount of rich malt to balance. The bitterness remained steady into the finish. A very decent IPA, and happy to try again since the WBC.

Hazy golden pour with small head. Aroma was citrus hops and grapefruit. Taste was malty and hoppy with nice bitterness. Frothy pallet. Very nice IPA. The best beer that I had here out of the 9 I tried.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at 4 queens. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy off white head that leaves decent spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a floral hop wit grapefruit and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a nice hoppy bite in the flavor and nice bitter finish. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well. A very good IPA from Chicago Brewing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the 4 Queens. Great, quality IPA. Pretty aggressive hops in the aroma and the flavour but never overpowering. Very smooth and easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Several pints @ the 4 Queens. Pretty looking beer (or maybe it’s just due to the dearth of good beer in LV). Aroma is piney citrus and orange zest. Taste is initially fresh and nicely citric hop acidity with a smooth caramel note on the finish. As itwarms, it breaks down and gets a little funky, but all in all a nice brew and a bonus point for the location.
