3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. A very nice IPA. Gold body with a good white head. Aroma of hops and citrus, a bit of sweetness. Flavor is hoppy and citrusy, very light and refreshing with just that touch of sweetness.

Light malt; moderate hops, average head (lasting, white, w/excellent lacing); sparkling clear; no particles; beautiful amber color; excellent flavor -- not over the top like Red Hook; light-to-medium body; soft carbonation; my personal favorite!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Average IPA, I’ve had this a bunch over the years and am reading it retrosprectively. Good citrus/bitter balance. Crisp and smooth to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber body with a frothy head. Aroma is obviously hop dominated, mostly citrus and grapefruit, notes of caramel malt. Flavor is much the same, but as it warmed it completely fell apart. The last few sips were a mess. Before that it was a good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A cracking American IPA. Shining gold with a short head. Smelled great: very bright with luscious soft fruit and nose-tingling gooseberry tartness. Soft caramel and fresh hops. Medium bodied. Typical US PA flavour mix of caramel vs piney hops, but better balanced than most. Long satisfying bitter finish. Very good indeed. (Duff homecoming gathering)

Pours an orange golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is of faint pine needles and hops. Flavor is slightly hoppy and piney. Better than average, but nothing spectacular here.

Heard a lot about this beer before I moved to Chicago. Good, but not as good as I had hoped. Little darker than I like. Don’t care too much for the aroma but good hoppy flavor. Tap much better than bottle.
