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.

On tap @ Clybourn. Nice citrusy aroma, somewhat thin body, decent white head. Taste is not too bitter but just enough... lots of hop flavor, and finishes very nice.. little bit of malt flavor

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge, frothy, white head, lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is average malt (husky grain), average hop (grass, grapefruit, pine), light yeast (earth) with notes of dust, pineapple, and peach skin. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter-dry finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

daknole (10828) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2009
tap at GI. Mostly orange pour wtih a smallish white head. Hops galore! The citrus jumps out...good grapefruit and a rich malt aroma that is accented by the wood chips I am sure. Flavor is really nice. The hops jump out but they donít overpower. Good combo of citrus, floral and malt. Good stuff.

On tap Firkin Fest 09. Deep orange color, minimal foamy head. Flavor is Cascade hops. Mmm Cascade hops. (Later note: not sure how I knew it had Cascade hops?) Mild malt profile, dry finish. Good session beer.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2009
On tap at Goose Island Clybourne. Pours a rich orange with almost nothing for a head. The nose is hoppy, nondistinctly citrusy with a bit of grain and darker malt. Clean, perhaps a bit fruity. The mouthfeel isnít watery, but not substantial, and the carbonation level conservative. The flavor is in line with the nose. Substantial hops, citrusy to floral with substantial malt, not too sweet with some darker grainier character. Clean quick finish, a sweet accompaniment to a meal!

BrewCzar (108) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 5, 2009
20th Anniv. bottle pours a hazy orange color with a medium white head. Godd lacing. Aroma profile has tons of citrus with a small amount of hops. Very light flavor with hints of grapfruit, lemon, some orange, and pine needles. Mouthfeel is light and clean. Very little hops in this one.
