3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
growler via myself. i didn’t realize this is so well rated. definitely not worth $16 for a growler refill, where does GI get off? there really wasn’t any rye in the flavor it all. it was pretty hoppy all around, pretty IPAish with a bit of a lager taste as well. reasonably drinkable, but probably would have started to get kinda heavy after 3 pints of it. so not a session by any means. in retrospect i wish i’d paid more attention to the hops so i’d be able to identify tomahawk in the future. but instead i was at a party. oh well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Clybourn location. Coudy light color with small white head. Grassy aroma. Very hoppy, fairly bitter, lots of pine and citrus. A little too woody to be extremely drinkable, but overall excellent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on tap at Clybourn brewpub. Light orange and pretty much opaque in the pint with a feathery, soapy-looking dusting of head that leaves a big doily (sp?) lace half an inch up the side (nice). Smells of flowery hops and musty sugars. A bit watery at the very first, it settles into a warm medium-bodied feel. Sweetish, with the malts very nicely defined and somewhat dry, cracker and fruitcake. Flowery hops lilt over the top of the malts, and get delicately bitter and dry in the end, with a little bit of lingering citrus. Well crafted beer, great session ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a rocky white head. Plenty of hop presence rounded out with spicy rye. Nice lingering bitterness. A fine effort.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at G.I. Clybourn: Brown/orange with a smallish off white head. Fruity and bready aromas. Flavor is much more spicy and tart than the nose leads on, finishes more toned down and smooth with breads and hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @GTMW. Pours a light amber with a full white head. The aroma is very hoppy, grassy. The flavor is full of hops, with just a touch of the malt coming through, but that is quickly covered up by the hoppy finish. Very well made.
