From sampler rack at the Pig....nose and color / appearance were good....taste not so much. Taste was kind of metallic and very very bitter...but not in a good way. Not good.

Draft at Chicago Hyatt regency. Doesn’t smell like much. Maybe a little hop. Taste is very mild and flat. Not very good.

ryecatcher (718) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours an amber color, white head, so-so retention, nose is pine, citrus with some malt. Mouth is fruity hops, malt and a sweetness that lingers, cloyingly so at the end. Average.

charule (954) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2013

bleeng (1496) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Draft at Courtyard downtown Chicago. Poured bright gold and clear. Mild piney nose. Taste is dry and with a nice fresh hop profile. Sessionable and enjoyable.

hopheadsbrew (142) - Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Very sweet and fruity aroma. Cloudy rust color. Medium carbonation. Tastes like a dubbel and not like an ipa. No noticeable hops. As a dubbel I would probably give it a better score.

whiskeyrocks (56) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013
I don’t see where the Ipa is in this. Its very light. Not hoppy and no cirtus flavor. Its like an extremely watered down ipa. It poured a nice thick heaf but thats about all. I wouldnt reccomend this.

Bottle to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a murky burnt-orange with resinous off-white lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet and hoppy with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

[:39] Fucken a bro this shit is some garbage. Pour an amber red with an off white head. Bitter soap, heavy caramel malt, and loads of unfermented sugars round out this filth. Bitter sweet finish. U jokin?
