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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Last beer of my Chicago trip. Grabbed a quick bite and a beer before my flight to FL with my brother at the pub in the airport. Pleasant earthy aroma with slight hints of grapefruit. Hoppy flavor with a tad bit of malt in there. Nothing super special but a nice way to end a trip.

Apr 27, tap @ Goose Island, Clyborn. Fresher and sweeter than the casc one. Better hoppy aroma and flavor as well as finish. Even fruityness is better. But not as matured and balanced.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this from a cask at the Clybourn brew pub. Pours crystal clear to my surprise with an attractive thick and frothy head. The head is bright white and leaves rocky sheets of lace on the glass. Strong piney aroma, full of citrus fruits like grapefruits, mangoes, and earth. Nice strong bitter hops on the tongue with loads of sweet citrus fruits, a good balance of pine and earth as well. Of course, the mouthfeel feels a bit flat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed while hanging out with a good friend at the Goose Island Clybourn brewery. Appearance a cloudy amber-ish with a thin lacing white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, and hops, somewhat soft. Taste primarily grapefruit with the bitterness of hops, nice malty backing as well, definitely has a fruitiness to it. Pretty good stuff.
