Had it on tap at Owen & Engine in Logan Square ChiTown. Pous a hazy copper hie with a thin white duke head. Deep soulful malt aroma and taste. Mild overall for a double IPA. Makes me feel all the feels.

Pour to snifter, bottled on 6/11/15. Beautiful lightly-golden pour, some haze, and a nicely-lasting head. Nose is of ripe mangos, peach, pine, and flowers. Flavor is flowery, silky, citrus rind, a hint of tropical juice as it inches closer to room temp. A bit soapy finish. Medium carb, lingering is not overbearing, though. Wish I had a newer batch. Oh well! Still quite drinkable and worth trying.

Bottled 08/05/15. Pour into IPA glass; Very clear yellow, huge white head. Aroma is pineapple, peach, tangerine, tropical notes, really nice aroma. Fantastic actually. Flavor is pineapple, tangerine, tropical fruit, sweetness, a very soft mouthfeel which is awesome. Medium bitterness in the finish.

Cracker and tropical fruit (mango, pineapple, papaya) aroma. Taste is initially very resinous pineneddle hops, then cracker malts, then a nice sweet pineapple finish.

TorbenJensen (784) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2015
Not surprisingly, this double IPA have a fresh hoppy aroma. Furthermore, revealing a little peach in the aroma. The taste is naturally hoppy, but in a limited manner. Its palate is medium and it has little creamy mouth feel. Hazy golden color testifies to an unfiltered ale. Although it keeps the entire 9.4% alcohol it is easy to drink and quite delicate,
