3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from MGM Mankato, pours with a golden browncolor, foamy white head that lasts a few minutes. Definite hop smell with some light floral and fruity notes. Flavor is definitely dominated by the hops in a good way, with the citrus flavor sneaking in. Lingering bitter finish that keeps the hops on your tongue.

Draft at GI Clybourn in June. Not sure what’s really left to say that hasn’t already been said. Pretty good IPA, nothing super spectacular, but like others said: very refreshing. I could’ve drank this all night.

12oz Bottle. Compared to other IPAs, this one is pretty mild, making it refreshing. Due to the fruity aroma and slight malty sweetness, this beer taste sweeter then IPAs I’m use to. I personally love the hops in IPAs, and wish more was in this one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
28.05.2004, 0,355l Bottle. Clear yellw colour with white head. This beer smells really nice with citrus and wheat. Very bitter but not so much malt. I think the body is a little to thin. Taste is refreshing and I really like the strong bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The nose was earthy and floral hops. The appearance was true to the style, red/gold color, white head. The flavor was a mix of citrus and earthy hops, slight taste of metal. The finish is entirely citrus hops, again witha slight taste of metal. Relatively thin mouthfeel, not sticky. Excellent overall. Very nice and refreshing on a hot day.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Not a bad entry from one of my favorite Chicago brewers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice clear orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma mostly of citrus hops, slight floral, and some light fruity notes. Flavor matches well and leaves a nice hop bitterness behind. Slightly slick mouthfeel, but a nice IPA anyway.

FCBF 09 Too much hops for me. Overpowering in the aroma and flavor. Others might like that though.
