3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Exp. date 03/01/16. Pours clear amber with a thick and stable white head. Malty nose. Fruity as well, some hops... Bit citric. Fairly well. Tastewise moderately bitter. Resiny hops, but also a slight yeasty kick. Aftertaste is dry and pretty refreshing. Furthermore a bit bland, but quite refreshing on a hot day. Bit thinnish in texture, moderately carbonated. Decent quencher, nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in a sampler at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours a clear golden-hued copper with a small white head. Nice, fresh aroma with fruity hops, bready yeast, and sweet malts. The freshness falls off a bit in the flavor, which is still fine, and has notes of apricot and melon along with sweet malts. Medium-bodied, with a bitter, juicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Solid IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Clybourn. Really nice Belgian IPA. Pours a hazed Orange-gold with a sticky white head. Nose is banana, citrus and mango. Some white pepper phenol comes across as well. Soft. On tasting, the bitterness is really nice, not too high. Lots of juicy fruits come through, as well as more of that white pepper. Medium dry with a nice sweet malt backbone. Clean and crisp overall.

A decent Belgian ipa. It is less flowery and spicy than most but rather tropical and fruity, not a lot of bitterness.

Flight on tap at the Clybourn brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a faintly hazed striking gold orange hue, fiery glow. Frothy white head dies to a film, laces well as a decent fuller layer. Aromas are Belgian spice, yeast, and fruity apple, citrus mixed with a firm dry floral and bitter hopping. Touches of bread dough, gentle sweetness, yeast grows in potency. Initial is medium bodied, offering a pleasant bready and citrusy life up front, touches of dough, estery fruit and a firm hopping. Touches of banana, apple, pear and dough in the middle. Finish is mellow dryness, spice and bitter hops. The comp component makes a firm stand up front, dry and bitter, getting a touch sweet in the middle. Finishes a touch spicy and dry. Pleasant.
