3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewpub, drank within the hour at MNF gathering :)
Poured a deep gold with a decent white head that dissipated to a thin film over the surface and laced just a bit.
Nose is citrus rind, sweet resin and pine with a body of grains to sturdy it. Taste is the same, a great balance of sweet resin, biting pine and tangy, bitter hops- all balanced by the body of grains. A tasty and easy to drink brew.

Tap at Piece. Pretty decent APA/IPA. Clean golden malt bill. Kind of a new school hop bill, but not as pronounced as its Chicago peers. Fruity, delicate hops. OK.

Pours orange honey amber with a creamy white head. Aroma brings sweet malty and hoppy oranges, a subtle blend of the two. Flavor of oranges and zesty malts, lightly sweet on the tongue on a smooth medium body.

Clear golden yellow, small white head. Melon, bubblegum, fresh hay. Slight bitterness upfront transitioning into more mellow sweetness. Medium long finish, chewy medium body. Nicely done, pretty well balanced.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Growler pour, thanks Andy! Great brew here, an IPA but not a huge one, very easy to drink. Draft. Golden hazed pour. OK in the smell think in el Dorado. Flavor is more melon with just a hint of earthy caramel malt.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap at Piece. Served in a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a golden amber color with a pure white head. Some splotches of lace are left behind.
S: Nice balance between light fruit, grass and sweet malts. Definitely on the lighter end though and I really got to dig my nose in there to get anything.
T: Taste is a little richer with some grassy hops, mild bitterness, a little citrus rind and the sweet, malty finish to give it a little balance.
M: Medium to light bodied. Pretty drinkable with nice carbonation level as well.
O: Solid overall. Nicely balanced, but I prefer several other offerings from Piece in the hops category.
Serving type: on-tap

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice, mellow IPA. Hop character is citrusy and floral and not at all overwhelming. A slightly watery body with a smooth mouthfeel.
