Had on tap at Clybourn. A great American IPA, chock full of hops. If you donít like a hoppy beer, look somewhere else.

A tremendous amount of bite and tons of Fuggles and Cascades get the job done here. Ugh.

Nice ambery peachy colour. Big floral, fruity aroma. Taste matches aroma well, with good IPA flavours. Not as bitter as some better IPAs. Very smooth. Good finish and an ejoyable beer from a friend who brought this back from the brewery.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber pour. Medium head that falls fast. Unfortunate bitterness that ruins the beer. Highly hopped, which makes my stomach cry for Pepto or Tums later on. I just donít dig the hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good hop aroma present. Assertive level of bitterness, but seems slightly overdone or unbalanced. Enjoyable but not as smooth as others in the style range.

Iím not an IPA fan really, so giving it this rating needs to be taken as a compliment. Itís not a bad IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On the íbitterí side of IPAís... similar to Sierra Nevada or Anchor in the íbitterí style. My Favorite Goose Island brew... Thereís a few IPAís I might like slightly better, but this is OVER a 4.00 beer. Iím never disappointed to drink this. HINT! To reduce bitterness, double or Triple-pour it from one glass to the other. Needs aereation.

I wasnít wildly impressed, I did like the citrusy nature (itís definitely worthwhile to try) but there are better IPAs out there.
