The aroma is more like a smooth, almost bland, Sullivan than knock-your-socks-off Gaudi or sock-you-in-the-eye Gehry that I usually expect from a DIPA. The malt flavor is dominant and quite tasty like Calatrava, and well-structured like another Chicago favorite, Mies van der Rohe. Excellent, an Eiffel, not transcendent, like a Le Corbusier.

Pours a hazy rusty orange color with a nice tan head. Taste is deep sweet citrus. Taste is deep sweet citrus as well with bitter resin and pine notes. Finish is moderately long with a bitter sweet citrus ending and packs some pine and resin at the very end. Descent DIPA.

It’s pretty tasty; however, I would have liked a little more hop aroma. The aroma is somewhat hoppy with a malt underbelly that seems prominent. The taste is similar with a lot of thick rich malt meandering with the citrusy hops. The finish is thick and caramel with a smooth soapy feel that lingers just a bit. Overall, solid.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep clear copper with a medium, off-white head. Aroma is bready malt and citrus hops. Flavor is malt with citrus fruit and resinous hops with good balance and a nice bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Good job.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft->shaker. Hazy orange with small white head. Citrus hops and sweet malt, but out of balance and messy. A lower-tier GI offering, for me at least.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grassy aromas from a slightly murky tangerine/yellow body with a frothy white head. Dry, spicy, biting bitterness with more grass, orange and citrus pith. Excellent sweet sticky caramel malt balance to this bitterness that both tames and highlights it at the same time. The alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming. Leaves a spicy bitter flavor behind on the tongue along with a little candy sugar. Excellent DIPA!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Uno. Orange, tangerine on the nose. Bitter hop notes throughout - pine/resin, spruce and misc. citrus in the flavor. Bitter finish. The high ABV is hidden well.
