4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
In a howler from the brewery. It is awesome to have this brew and this brewery just a short bike ride away from the house. A great whiff of citrus hops. Pours a orange golden hue with a white fluffy head that slowly disappears. A great balance of late citrus hops with sufficient malt to carry it off. The palate is just right...not too dry or too cloying. Not just a dependable IPA, but one that you look forward to.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the annual Chicago Beer Society picnic, and self served to a clear, plastic shaker, showing a hazed, amber color, with a decent layer of off white/cream head foam. The aroma was expressive grapefruit, with resin, and some dankness to the nose. Some lingering quality to the moderate hop bitterness, and more available, tempering malt. Medium bodied, and suitably carbonated. A cut above standard faire as IPAs go, with no fault to it’s tastiness.

Draft at brewery. The pour is a dark orange, almost amber. The aroma is very hoppy. The taste is hoppy, but not overwhelmingly which I like. The hops have a fruit taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber orange pour with a really nice khaki head and good lacing. Mild hop aroma, some fruitiness, citrus, pine, and a bit of cat pee, plenty of maltiness. Balance in the flavor leans a touch too much towards malty for me, good hop bitterness, some citrus and pine, just not enough fresh hop kick for me. Good mouthfeel and looks good to boot. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Howler and served in mt new HA snifter: Coppery hue with a fading but lasting frothy head and left good lace upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of resiny, catty, dank and citrus hops along with some bready and crystal malts, aromatic as well. The taste is moderately high alpha bittering with some grapefruit, melon, and lychee. Solid background of bready malts before finishing with a slight hop spice kick. Lively and a tad metallic. Overall a solid tasty beer, nothing too over the top but enough to keep ya interested.

Tap @ Half Acre with TheAlum. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a white head. Floral, fairly citrusy fruity, somewhat caramel flavor. Really nice, quaffable, spicy, orange citrusy, resiny, a bit dank hoppy flavor. Like.

First pour off the keg so murky gold with medium white head, great lacing. Aromas of oranges, lemon, pine, and peach. Maybe some simcoe or cascade in this? Flavor is much of the same with balanced hops and malt with light marshmallow in the finish. Awesome ipa.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the source. Pours a golden orange with an off-white head with nice retention. Aroma has all citra hops; fresh fruits and citrus. Lovely! Taste is of fresh fruit, grapefruit, pine and a surprisingly solid sweet caramel malt presence. Medium bodied and quite sticky. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet, but really well balanced. This is a really good IPA!
