Growler from the brewery. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Catty nose lemon cat piss. Lemon grassy flavors bitter grass. Despite the cat piss hoppy aroma, not bad. 6/3/7/3/14

Draft at Wrigleyville. Dark bronze. Rich with a caramel malt base, this is definitely a kick up from their ’normal’ IPA. There’s just a teaser of metallic hops though ... So west coast hopheads would undoubtedly be let down. (#3902, 5/8/2010)

Sample at Goose Island Clybourn. Clear reddish amber pour with a medium off-white head. Sweet malt nose with grapefruit and grassy hops. Flavor starts off with apricot and malt and then turns to grassy and citrusy hops for the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Pours a clear orange with a medium sized white head. Big floral, large citrus. A little empty given the great aromas, but still good. Big earthy grapefruit and ruddy malt. Yummy, but could probably have been fantastic if it lived up to the aromas.
