3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A slightly hazy orange-amber color with a nice white head. Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Nice flavor, obviously it’s hoppy, some nice malt flavors as well. Nice bitter finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. I drank this A LOT in college. Now that I’ve moved to Chicago, I find myself drinking a lot once again. Overall very good, but not the best IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2007 Bottle. Slight hazy copper/orange body under a fingerthick off-white head. Beautiful flowery hop-aroma, also citrus and dry malts. Taste is complex and mellow; citrus again, with a decent malt base and a delicate hopbitterness. Everlasting bitter finish. A great beer.

On tap at the Clybourn brewpub. Pale golden colour with a mostly diminishing frothy white head. Grapefruit and pine aroma with light caramel notes. Light toasty and caramel malts with a lingering fresh pine and grapefruit bitter finish. Medium bodied, juicy. Good stuff.

aroma of sweet pine; pours a dark cloudy gold; flavor is a bold bitter but works as a session beer also. I love this beer, it has a great flavor and the hop resins linger on and on. This and the New Glarus IPA make living in the midwest alot less depressing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle via shigadeyo (thanks Craig!). Chilled 2 hours. This pours a clear copper with an average white head. Nose is mostly citrus, lemon, grapefuit and grass. Taste is mostly grapefruit and grassy hops. Very thin body, watery mouthfeel. A bit below average for an IPA...
