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.

JK (5631) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Tap at Goose Island. Gold color and a lacing white head. Good sroma, grass and flowers. Bitter, and the hops have a stronger pre5semcd than the the lightly sweet malt. Not complex or complicated bit good flavor and an emjoyable hop forward beer.

Pailhead (6376) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of mild citrus, fruit, and grapefruit. It’s a transparent with a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and mild fruit. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and a hint of herbal hops. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

It was on draft, poured golden with a white head. There are citrus aromas. It has a quality, bitter bite on the palate although not aggressively bitter. There is also caramel malt elements in the taste.

Poured from a bottle, very nice amber colour with nice creamy head. Great aroma of hoppes and fresh fruits. Nicely balanced with this slight bitterness at the end. Really good, one of my favourites so far.
