COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Pub brewed India Pale Ale that yields a higher gravity and slightly deeper hue than our perennial IPA, making it "mid way" between the IPA and Imperial IPA. Generous amounts of Amarillo hops were used and aged with oak and apple wood chips for distinctive character. Dispensed with Nitrogen and "slow poured" for a silky mouthfeel.

16 Nov 2012, tap at goose island Wrigleyville. Nose is huge lemon rind hops and moderate alcohol malt. Med body and mildly fizzy. Tree bark and orange juice. It's an odd taste. But very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at the Clyborn. Pours a clear amber with a cascading creamy brown head that dissipates completely. Aroma has citrus and grapefruit with a nice smooth grain backing. Flavor has more of an earthy citrus note with a strong underlying bread note.

20oz pint. Copper red in hue with a lovely head of bony white. Aroma of sweet malt, and spicy orange. A silky smooth body of cream fills my mouth with spicy melons and caramel malt. Long finish of tingly hops, spice and a little bitter orange peel.

On tap at Goose Island, Clybourn, October 22, 2011. Clear amber with a small white head. Quite a lot of citrus and pine in the aroma. The taste was good though not spectacular. Good balance and a descent bitterness.

Dogbrick (11053) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Sample from cask at the Clybourn brewpub. The beer is a clear pale golden-amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet fruits and bready malt.. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and malt. The finish is fruity with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

draft... amberish colored beer with a light white head, good retention... mostly malt ipa, citrus with a bit hops on the back... tastes ok but just boring, not a whole lot going on, easy to drink but I like green line a bit more

Flight on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a deep luscious copper glowing pour, fiery orange and red mingle, with just a faint haze. A frothy near tan head sits atop, small layer laces pretty well throughout. Aromas are a vibrant lemon and grapefruit hopping with healthy melon, florals, and grass. Pretty enjoyable, fresh and vibrant. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied with a healthy bitter citrusy hopping. Lots of lemon, grapefruit mingling in with a sufficient grassy hop, florals. A solid dryness mixes with crisp pale malts, bread, lingering florals and grass move into the backend. Nose was great, beer itself was solid and fresh. Finish is grassy and lemony, dry hop finish with just some light lingering pale and bready lighter malts making appearance. A solid fresh IPA. Probably not a world beater, but I enjoyed it quite a bit better than their regular. And with freshness on it’s side, it’s got heart and can compete with most other brewpub regular IPAs.
