Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.

This IPA is one of the most delicious and balanced I’ve ever tried. Right when you open it and pour, it welcomes you graciously to the party it has in store. It has a wonderful golden color with a burst of bubbles and a light, hoppy head that kicks things off nicely. There is no bitter burst of hops here, just a gentle, somewhat bubbly smoothness. The beer itself is very sweet and creamy, and reminded me somewhat of Three Floyd’s Gumball head with its hints of candy. There is a distinct presence of malt which balances out the hops perfectly, meaning that every sip you take a delightful and balanced. More of a malty IPA with a note of hops than vice versa, which is how most IPAs are. This is perhaps the easiest drinking IPA I’ve ever enjoyed. Perfect representation of the city of Chicago.

Smells of lemonade and old orange peel. Taste is nice but with the orangyness of other popular American ipas. Worthy.

Cristobal37 (666) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 25, 2016
On tap at LAX. Nice golden with little head. Light atoma of fruity hops. Bitter with some fruity citrusy notes. Bitterness is nice but flavor is quite light. Palate is just dry bitterness like cooked grapefruit. Not really my thing.
