On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark amber with a medium white head. Has a very green hop aroma to it. Just delightful. Very citrusy and pine-like in scent. The flavor is like sucking on a half of hop grapefruit. Medium thick body seems to support this level of hops adequately without suppressing anything with the sweetness of too much malt. This is a really GOOD brewpub IPA.

draft at brewpub. hard to see. dark red toffee with decent opacity. smell is all grapefruit hops. and some hard candy. taste is very malty sweet, most of the flavor is from the hops. super fruity. like hard rock candy. super mild and drinkable.

This was a quite bitter glass of beer. Reminiscent of amarillo brillo, but more bitter. needs some more malt perhaps, but overall, a quaffable pint.

On tap at Piece. Poured a clear medium golden with a short cap of off-white head. Nose was heavy on the citrus and pine hoppage with sweet, rum-laced caramel backing it... full and engaging. Hefty sweet caramel and lighter fruits (peach and apricot) at the core.. juicy with a higher level of bitterness to it. Creamy and juicy on the palate with a hair over medium-body on it.. full of flavor and had a nice flow to it.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Excellent nose...very robust PNW hopping...all grapefruit and pine boughs. Inviting as hell. The first flavor is a big malty mess of caramel and toffee...but this shifts instantly to the hop slap of citrusy-pine oil that assails the tongue with a sharp and piercing stab of bitter goodness. Very refreshing and well paired with a Conneticut-style red pizza with bacon, banana peppers and spinach. (Shut up and try it!)

Another well constructed beer by these guys. Citrusy hop goodness. I love this place.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Cloudy amber pour with a spicy-hop aroma. Taste has some really nice citrus-piney hop flavor with pretty good malt backing. Not great for a D/IIPA, but pretty good IPA-ish brew that was fresh and tasty. A little better balance and smoothness is preferable, but still very good!

Clear auburn body with a moderate, tightly-packed beige-colored layer of foam. Sweet, resinous aroma of pine, grapefruit, caramel, apricot, nuts and grains. Just a lot of hop presence, with a rather substantial sweet malt layer underneath. The body is reasonably full with a pleasing weight on tongue and enjoy carbonation to keep it lively. The bitterness in the mouth is fairly perceptible, but not overtly harsh or confrontational. The balance of sweet, grainy malt and citris, piney hops is pleasant, especially the perceived orange juice I noticed. The healthy bitterness dryes out the finish leaving a refreshing lip-smack and the end. All told, this seems more like an IPA than it’s doubled-up sibling, but either way it’s pretty tasty.

On tap. Pours dark orange/copper with a small white head. Its citrus, its pine, its an IPA! A good one at that. One of the better brews I have had here.
