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.

Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and some chocolate sweetness. Good I.P.A flavor, nice hoppiness with pine and citrus notes too. Decent I.P.A

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.

Draft. Mostly clear gold pour that started with a large off-white head that quickly scattered into lace.

Tap at rusty bucket. Pour amber and thickish head for an ipa. Nose is citrus and hop. Taste is balanced but just a bit sweet. ---Rated via my mouth

kaser (2504) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Poured from a keg at island brewery. Tastes like vegetables. Weird. Cloudy orange pour. Tons of white head. Very crazy different but not digging it

Blairgus (2551) - California, USA - NOV 15, 2012
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

deyholla (6490) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 23, 2012
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.

hombrepalo (1800) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2011
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.
