I’m becoming increasingly impressed with this little midwest brewhouse. Vibrant copper pour with small off-white head. Big thick earthy grapefruit aroma. Tastes of hop resin, sap, grapefruit rind and pine cone. Has an almost fresh hop feel to it. Smooth, almost chewy. Perfectly bitter. Good stuff.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter glass dark golden with a slightly off white head.
Aroma is sweet like honey,clover, flowers with a touch of bitterness. Probably one of the most delectable brews I have inhaled in a long time.
Flavorto the palate is flat out crazy beautiful. Sweet pine trees needles. Then definitely add in the freshly mowed lawn. Far better than most DIPAs. This brewery nailed the style almost perfectly. And it;s in Lawrence KS? Good thing my parents are KU grads or would have never believed something this good came from Kansas. LOVE!!!

Didn’t really work for me. Decent aroma of grass and hay. But those same characteristics were harsh in flavor. I found it an unbalanced and harsh double ipa.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is a slight copper orange, light head, slight lace. Malt aroma with sweet fruit somewhat mild, a little resin pine, maybe slight floral. Some yeast funk and vegetable plantyness. ok aroma some mineral even plastic, like of mead or fruit wine. Flavor follows through as a good imperial ipa with classic c hop flavor.Fruit citrus, pine, some spice, more spice on the end. Pine and menthol resin bitter. Cleans up nice and dry with a semi long bitter. Malt sweet and bitter is nicely balanced, nice smooth creaminess. Pretty good for an imperial besides the aroma for its abv I like this more than average.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale copper pour with a thin off white heads sustained by a high effervescence. Aroma is sweet tropical fruit and citrus, toast, biscuit, light caramel, some nice fruity notes. Flavor is big grapefruit citrus, pineapple, some melon, grass, herbal, caramel, honey, toast. Medium body, slightly syrupy, dry entry, light to medium carbonation dry, slightly slick finish with a moderate hop acid bite. Really good stuff over all, conventional, but solid IIPA.

On tap at 2014 GTMW, pours a clear dark orange with a thick off white head and lots of lacing, the aroma is of strong hops and citrus with a bit of tropical fruit mixed up too, the flavor has a ton of fruit and bitterness on the front end with the alcohol well hidden in the finish, bright finish and a smooth mouthfeel, nice.

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 10/5/14. Beer courtesy of Chae... Thanks!!! The aroma has a dank funky aroma with notes of citrus & stone fruit. The taste follows the aroma & has a fruity flavor medium hops bitterness & finishes pretty dry. A different flavor than most DIPA but in a good way.
