Pint on tap. Orange-golden with a lasting ring of bubbles. Nose of florals, citrus, caramel and resin. Tastes of caramel, grapefruit, resin and a long finish of wooden bitterness. Light-medium body is watery and sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy apricot with a fast, tan head.
Scent is caramel, orange, peach.
Taste is a little sticky citrus peel.
Very soft bittering...90 IBU, eh....?...right.
A strong dose of fruit juice.
Tasty, but average.

can - Pours cloudy yellow with a small off-white, lingering head that laces well. The aroma is of citrus hops and a slight herbal character. The flavor has good bitterness with a little citrus and an earthy note. Itís medium bodied and overall a solid IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Sharp Edge Beer Emporium. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt, light acetone, citrus, grassy hops. Flavor is sweet with a sharp hops kick in the finish. A little sweet for an IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 donít 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. Iím just not into this...

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.
