Every time I go to Chicago I bring home several cases. Excellant aroma with a creamy head, nice belgium lace on glass, smooth with an IPA kick. Goes down easily,

ARH (153) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 On tap into a shaker. The aroma is a pleasant, and intriguing, combination of floral and spice (pepper and coriander mostly) with some mild yeast and some subtle grassy, wood, and pine notes. Not much malt coming through in the aroma; maybe some mild toasted notes, but I really have to hunt for íem. Itís a clear orange-pale color with a soapy white head that recedes to a thin film, but leaves a decent lacing down the glass. Mild bitter tastes a predominate; there are some subdued sweet citrus notes, but very much in the background. Itís not a dissimilar profile to a mild IPA. In the mouth itís medium-light body is very much a spicy pepper, floral combination at first. This is followed by a dry citrus / grapefruit sweetness, and flowing nicely into a hoppy bittering at the end. Thereís also some very subtle earthiness and nuttiness on the palate which didnít come through on the nose. Itís crisp and dry with lively carbonation. A very unique, and well done, take on an session APA.

BenDover (201) - Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy yellow, lots of carbonation, fine white foam that leaves some lacing. Aroma is spicy, hoppy, with some pine. Taste is a bit more subdued that I expected. Some grapefruit, hops, and pine, but not exactly in-your-face as many west coast IPAís can be. Very good, though.

Draught at Aberdeen tap. Pours a cloudy orange amber. Strong hoppy notes. Nice bitter hoppy flavor with a weak palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is probably the best beer I have had. For the sake of nit-picking the head retention wasnít great.

Can pour average golden. Nose lots of resin, mango, tropical fruit hop. Smells great. Taste grapefruit bite up front, followed by strong malt. Minimal bitter finish. Unfortunately the taste doesnít live up to the nose. Still very drinkable.
