2/3/16 Chicago (10 oz draft pour in cervoise glass, Goose Island Clybourn Brewpub). Copper red pour, minimal head, light tan head minimal lacing. Citrus and pine aroma. Lemon citrus taste, with hints of pine. Fine dry finish, somewhat tart, mild texture, easy drinking. Could definitely feel higher ABV. Overall good offering.

Aroma - smells like delicious. So good I smelled it before each drink Appearance- light head, pale orange look. Taste - light for an IPA that is 10% Low Carbonation, smooth. Overall this is a very good high ABV IPA.

deyholla (9912) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Clyborn location. Pours a clear amber orange with a gray head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of resinous pine with sap and sweet grains. Flavor starts with resinous pine and a sweet grain coming out in the finish.
