It's a perfect beer. The fruit finish 30 seconds later put it past perfect for me. Wow. Perfect.

Pours a hazy orange. Has a strong floral and citrus hop bomb aroma. A very strong taste of citrus, floral, hops, pine and some spices. A lingering bitter hop aftertaste with some sweet citrus notes too.

purchased at Binny’s in Downers grove, IL
Pours bright slightly hazy orange with an awesome white fluffy head. awesome lacing all along the glass. Flavors of floral citrus, bright oranges, tangerines, canned fruit-awesome. Very lite bitterness, mostly floral citus. just a fantastic floral arangement here. Lovely finish of bright apricots, canned pineapple, grapefruit and tangerine. Phenomenal IIPA if you ask me. I will buy this everytime I go to chicago.

Light golden amber color. Frothy white nose. Lovely intense nose of pine floral and some bready malty notes. Low carbonation with very light body for the style. Medium bitterness, with a resiny finish. Very quaffable and super dangerously drinkable for the ABV. well executed IIPA

Light orange with a thin white head. Large citrus nose that begs for attention. Orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. Hoppy but not overly bitter. I really like this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy dark copper color with bright golden orange edges and a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving large streaks of soapy lacing on the way down.
Earthy floral hop aroma with fresh cut grass and a strong resinous pine needle character countered by a sweet malt backbone. Hints of spruce tip and earthy soil followed by caramel malt, toast, nut and toffee. Surprisingly one dimensional hop profile. Lacking in sweetness and has too strong of a malt presence in the nose for my preference.
Medium body with a blast of dry, earthy bitterness that lingers over a strong malt backbone into a very dry finish. Very earthy/soil-y with bitter, grassy hops and pine sap countered by sweet caramel malt, toffee, biscuit, toast and a touch of oak. There’s some slight boozy sweetness toward the finish but the high ABV is well masked. Overall, this beer was a bit of a disappointment for me. The malt flavors are too prominent and the hop profile is very one dimensional. Not a bad beer, just boring.

Can. Pours a hazy golden with a nice hoppy head. Smells of hoppy sour citrus. Taste is very similar to smell. Sour grapefruit that is smooth and very satisfying. An excellent imperial IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can, at the CTBCAIPAT-O. Pours a clear gold with a high (VERY high) white, mixed-grained lacy head. Nose is tangerine, lime, biscuity malt, and an interesting earthy, almost mushroomy note. On the tongue, it’s grapefruit, grapefruit, and grapefruit. There’s also some grapefruit. Oh, and lime peel, grassy notes, a little buttery richness (not diacetyl, more an umami richness), and a touch of cracker malt. Very little sweetness; it teeters on the edge of imbalance, but never quite falls. Finish is sharp and a little peppery. Flirts with imperfection, but manages to avoid it.

Can from beer temple Chicago.. Holy mango batman! Lots of tropical fruits. Decadent melon and cucumber. Really rounded out for a double IPA. Fairly sweet and not much malt backbone. It’s a good one.
