Golden-amber with big, foamy, beige head / Dry, musty nose of barley and citrus / Medium body, very sweet, somewhat malty and syrupy, with lots of bitterness / Sweet flavors of dry hop and muted grapefruit and orange / Needs work.

Had this at Elwoods tap. Pours deep golden, close to amber. little to no head, but a swirl produces a nice, light-tan film of foam. mellow aroma with malty caramel and light pine. taste is a bit more aggressive, with alot more bitterness than was evident from the aroma. medium body and carbonation.

Bottle from Brook-Falls Discount. Pours an orangey-pink grapefruit with a white head. Great retention and lacing. Aroma has fruit and some breadiness. Taste is of some fruit, some sweet sugar and some off flavor malts. Sweetish without any real ipa-ness to it. A malty saison? Not sure what they were doing here. It was not a pourer, but it really had nothing redeeming about it either.

Not too bad, but it could have used a lot more hops. Bread, yeast, malt, with some dark fruit like plum or raisin. Decent finish with a chewy mouth feel. Noticeable alcohol.

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.

[: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?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy, deep orange color with a quick falling white head. Aroma has a very strong lemon profile, light bitterness, strong toasted malts at the tail end. Flavor starts off with a strong lemon, mild tropical fruit with a light touch of a grassy, stale bitterness followed by a mild grainy ending. Body is light and very fizzy. Overall all a definite "meh" IPA. Flavors don’t work very well together and lack any smooth transitioning seen in a solid IPA. Definitely not something I will have again, albeit a very neat label as anything with Avogadro’s number is going to pull my eye in instantly.

Sweet, spicy hop aroma. Hazy dark amber red with a creamy off-white head. Sweet, not particularly bitter. Eh.
