UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Pours a light golden with a thinnish white head on tap at the Hopleaf in Chicago. Very hoppy. A little in the aroma, and big in the flavor. This brew is definitely growing on me. The flavor is a bit sweet, and very nice.

Pours gold-blond and transparent with a big, somewhat foamy white head. Nose is a fairly strong blend of green apples, spice, floral hops, and a touch of yeast. Flavor has an immediate but light roasty quality before quickly becoming overwhelmed by the fruity malt, wheat breadiness, and plenty of bitter hops. Finish is short and tart. Delivers what you expect in a solid IPA.

Color is a hazy golden color, with the likes of a lager only hazy. Lots of fresh hop smell, grass, peach, apple. Rather thin, quickly dissapating head. Mouthfeel leaves some to be desired. Taste is of fresh hops... citrus, pineapple, slight sweetness. Not much caramel malt. Finishes starts strong but does not last long. Only weakness is that it’s a tid bit watery.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a golden orange color with a medium white head. Aromas of citrus hops. Hop bitterness up front. A tart- sweet ness that is different from other IPAs makes it different and interesting.

Pours orange with thin white head. Aroma of floral hops. Taste has grapefruit and citrus hops. Nice resin in the finish. Easy drinking. Great session IPA. Reminds me of a hoppery Two Hearted.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz into a pint glass. Pours nice golden amber with a whitish head. Aromas of pine and malt with maybe some floral notes. The taste is hoppy for sure, but well balanced. The hops provide some nice pine flavors with slightly harsh bitterness. Not sure which hops produce this profile, but they must use the same ones in Great Divide, as they remind me of each other. Overall a nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Aroma has a lot of citrus and some caramel. Pours a yellow golden with a high white foam. Taste is medium bitter and medium sour. Well balanced but I don’t really care for the sour part of this IPA. Mouthfeel is nice, low to medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium coarseish offwhite head. Faintly hazy amber body with very
light carbonation. Tropical fruit, resin, and straw aroma with
mealy dusty notes. Dry-sweet mealy pineapple and alcohol taste
with resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Dry earthy resiny aftertaste with
funky grassy fruity notes. Nice, but a little alcoholic and
harsh. (0.355l bottle from some licquor store in San Francisco.)
