2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler @ 4 Queens, Vegas.
pours amber/copper, white head.
Aroma, good hops, but comes out with an aroma that had too much bad medical like smell.
Taste, hops are just strong here, with a great pine forest character.
Finish gives a lingering bitter mouthfeel that come sout being too spicy on the palate.

The brew that hit the palate was no where near the delightfullness that I expected. Sampled straight out of the brew pub at the vegas locaton, this beer has nothing more to offer than a name. Highly disengaged.

On tap in vegas 4 Queens on the Old Strip: Poured a hazy gold color. Smell is pine and citrus. Taste is sweet carmel and hops. A little dry going down, but still very refreshing. The best one they had on tap at the time. Little too pricey as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is my favorite beer at the Chicago Brewing Company at the Four Queens. It’s floral and fruity with plenty of hops added after the boil. The mouth feel is a little light for me and that is it’s weakest point. I’m guessing that the hops are the C variety (Cascade among others.) This is a light refreshing IPA and well worth the coin.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark golden with a tiny buubled white head and nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt, big pine and citrus. Flavor is light caramel malt flavor and a nice complement of NW American hops. Somewhat unbalanced, if I had to put my finger on it I would say that very high alpha acid hops were used in the late kettle additions (Warrior or Columbus).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a growler. Pours a semi-cloudy amber with a bubbly white head. Smells of hops, apricots, and fresh cut grass (in a good way). Taste is hops and more hops. I like it.

Slight hoppy apricot smell. Pours a watery thin yellow color. Very light in weight and flavor. Highly metallic in taste and in finish. Not enjoyable to drink - feels like I am licking a stainless steel appliance.
