3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Tokyo Pub. Pours cloudy orangish copper with off white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, floral hops, and some malt. Flavors of light tropical fruit, and citrus hops, but is really dominated by malt base. Really lacking hop profile. Something seemed off and did not seem fresh.

On tap at the Beer Bistro. Cloudy copper color with a white head. Grapefruity hop aromas. Grapefruit and tropical fruit hops nicely offset by the caramel malt backbone. A nice IPA...

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I had this on tap at the Blind Robin in Chicago, IL after going to the 3 Floyds Brewpub with some good friends. I didnít like this at all. It was too sweet, especially in the caramel malt department, and the only reason why I ordered this was because it was the only beer I havenít rated at the bar and I wanted to try it. I canít say Iím a fan of the clothing company, and Iím really not a fan of this beer. Threadless, I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the (and Iím ashamed to admit I was there- work function) Dave Mathews Band Caravan thing. 7-15ish-11 on tap. Poured a pure gold with a thin white head. A middle of the road IPA with a very simple hop profile. In the 100 degree heat a good IPA should have come across thicker and almost over bearing. This was a much better than the BMC swill those around me were drinking, but after 1 I switched to a little sumpin sumpin. Just sayin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the GTMW 2011. Hazy amber with a thin tan head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of stinky, sticky resinous hops with some citrus and caramel beneath. Taste of resinous west-coasty hops, toasted pale malt, mild caramel and citrus. Full bodied brew finishes up nice and bitter and is pretty tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finchs threadless ipa. On tap at Sheffields... Pours a semi- transparent amber reddish brown hue and topped with a creamy barely off-white head... Aroma ... Flavors have a balancing degree of citrusy piney hop focus with what seems to be a crystal malt backend. A bit more focused on more of the malty front when comsumed after a couple of daisy cutters, mind whoever is reading. Medium to somewhat full bodied with an adequate level of carbonation. Itís gowin on me as I have it. Citrus becomes more apparent and pretty drinkable.

Had on tap at Tribes Ale House. Good size head, about an inch, with almost copper color. Kind of hazy with good lacing. Aroma is citrus. Good bitterness and good aftertaste with caramel notes. Overall a good IPA and a good IPA for those who want to drink local in Chicago-land

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Birds and Blokes in Chicago. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter citruses with some piney resins and a sweeter caramel backing. Oranges, tangerines, and a bit of a grapefruit. Flavor is similar. Sweet orange and bitter grapefruit pines with some juicy tangerines. Balancing, sweeter caramel malts with a touch of bread. Finishes dry with a moderate bitterness and some juicy citrus resins. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a very tasty IPA. Easy drinking and balanced with lots of citrusy, resiny hops and a solid caramel.
