3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
7/20/2011: Moonshine Able Danger IPA... Aroma: Nice, floral-citrus bouquet. Appearance: Yellow in color; creamy off-white head. Flavor: Weird green leaf/weedy; sulfurish finish; mild bitterness; obviously dry-hopped, but I don’t like the hop profile; bordering on vegetable/plant greens. Palate: Medium bosy; smooth and soft; soapy mouthfeel. Overall: Kind of blah for an IPA.
Draught sample (6.9% ABV) at Moonshine in Chicago, IL. Rating #12 for this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has a nice mix of grapefruit pines and lemony florals. Some light grasses and a pale, grainy malt backing. Flavor is pretty nice with lots of piney citruses, some caramel, resins, grapefruit and orange florals, and some grainy pale malts. Finishes dry and moderately bitter with a nice, resiny grapefruit pine and grassy bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice IPA. Lots of citrusy hops with some piney resins, grass, and florals balanced with some grainy pale malts. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

On tap at moonshine. Pours golden orange with a small white head. Adoma is citrusy sweet with some floral notes, a bit grassy and some caramel maltiness. Flavor starts nice with a bright citrusy hop character, a bit of pine and some grassy notes before a more bitter and biting finish. There is some grain and biscuit notes there as well. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Decent

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear golden yellow with a white head that lasted and laced. Aroma had a good amount of pine with a hint of citrus and a hay backbone. Flavor began with pine that mellows to more of a grain and a hay finish. Nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler flight on tap at Moonshine (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy golden pour, touches of shiny edges, frothy whitish head that dies to a decent film, laces ok. Aromas are a moderate kick of juicy citrus hops, grapefruit and gumball Amarillo, lemons, grass, and florals. Touches of bready and biscuity malts. Some juicy fresh hops. Initial is lighter bodied, with a good kick of orange and grapefruit hops. Florals, lemons, and grass. Into the backend it dies out a bit with some bread and biscuits, pale malts, some crackers. Touch of more fresh orange and grapefruit, restrained hop complexity but not bad overall. Fairly fresh, a lot of orange comes into play. Sweeter. Finish is dry, citrusy, ok.
