On tap at Bangers... Murky honey gold, bright light tope head... Light hops with a musky grass note... The taste is all hops, loses malt but a bit of lemon... Much better than their pale offering, but not much of place on a crowded chicago beer scene

Pours a darkish amber color with a small head. Big hoppy citrus nose with some caramel malt. Also getting some pine. Taste has a solid bitterness and a nice taste. Lots of orange citrus. Nice lasting finish that is refreshing. A really good ipa.

Draft at Haymarket. Pours a pretty deep, almost copper with a white head. Nose is kind of bland. Some generic citrusy hops and caramel come through. I still don’t understand why brewers feel the need to throw a big caramel component into an IPA. Anyway, pretty generic. On taste, it is quite bitter and pretty fruity. More of the caramel notes. I’m just not into this...

I was nervous after the last exprience with this brewery but this one actually works well. A bit of bubblegum hops is always fun. Finish is a little piney and sticky. Some caramel malt and a light chewy grain sweetness working in the background.

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. It’s gowin on me as I have it. Citrus becomes more apparent and pretty drinkable.

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...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 16 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a muddy orange with a small, off white head. Lots of yeasties floating around in this brew. There are light notes of orange and grapefruit. The flavor seems to lack a nice hop punch. Some earthy malts with that orange and grapefruit making an encore. Medium bodied. Rather average in the IPA world.
