4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Knockout for sure. My seasonal allergies are kicking my ass and I can still get an awesome dank tropical hop aroma. Looks perfect golden body with a creamy head. The palate is just wicked, taste aside for a minute, creamy head in to the medium body and the perfect amount of dryness. Flavor is pineapple, orange, other citrus galore. With a pleasant bitterness that lingers. Iíll admit I shared none of this and regret nothing.

Thanks to DLeep for hooking me up with this. Label art is ridiculous and awesome.
the beer is orange with an inch of white head. Aromas of fresh hops, tropical fruit, citrus, pine. Great flavor. It gets better as the beer warms a tad and opens up. Big on the palate, with some noticeable alcohol, but hop character is certainly the feature. Mango, pineapple, pine resin. Very good.

Sampler on tap at the Oak Park Micro Brew Review.
Medium yellow with a thick white head. Mild aroma like a bit of alcohol. Sweet a bit bold and smooth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from late June release. Month and a half old so not SUPER fresh. This thing is either not that great of a DIPA or fell off a cliff. Pours a hazy orange with moderate white head. Aroma is peach, citrus, chocolate (?) and some heavy malt. Taste is an overly sweet, malty, peach forward DIPA. I did not know the ABV but it seemed rather high and Iíve now confirmed that. Iíd love to try this fresh on draft or super fresh from the bottle as it has to be better than this.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden pour with lots of unfiltered sediment into tulip glass. Nose is grapefruit and orange. It is a frangrant and upfront aroma. Condenscened sweetness with a bold lemony flavor. It is all well balanced. Not too complex but it is very well crafted. The lemon lingers onÖ.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden brown Nose is malty and sweet (lots of crystal) with a bit of chinook/Centennial bursting pine and sweet candy corn. Taste isnít quite a malt bomb. sweet (too much) and resinous. hop acids stick around for a while. has a minor menthol taste. Still one of the better IPAs.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Binnyís in Chicago.
Batch 444 bottled on 2014-06-28.
Pour is a nice hazy orange with a lasting white creamy head.
Smells candyish along with a tonne of orange and some light rye bread.
Very easy drinking despite its advertised strength (9%). Lots of citrusy hops and plummy flavours. Goes down really nicely. Finishes quite dry. Itís actually pretty well balanced.

Cloudy pale gold with some carbonation. Strong citrus and tropical fruit smell, some wheat; some musk. Flavor is very bright and hoppy: grapefruit, tangerine, Jolly Ranchers, lemongrass, but with a significant bitterness. Juicy and delicious; I was very surprised by this one.
