Poured from a 12oz can. Copper / orange in appearance with a fluffy white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit peel, tons of citrus and pine. Taste of pine tree, grapefruit with some sweet fruit. Overall a solid example of the style, American IPA. More please!

On tap at the brewpub, but I’ve had this before several times. This one was actually on cask with the whole cone centennial hops. Always a nice IPA....like all of their beers. Clean, hoppy, nice bitterness. Very solid IPA. Love the logo, too.

Tried both draft and can during last trip to Chicago. Slightly hazy golden appearance with ample head. Balanced flavor and easy to session.

Dry Amber color. Big caramel malt and tropical fruit notes. Big malty back bone really nice. Full body. Not sophisticated but balanced IPA.

Flavor is, as one might expect, very bitter up front, though some of the citrus notes and malt sweetness do step in to give some balance. A slight spicy, almost black-pepper tinge also sneaks in on middle of the tongue

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This classic American IPA showcases citrus fruit and floral honey in a lean and super clean profile, set in solid bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sliver of foam laces nicely around the shiny dark golden.
-This may not be the most memorable IPA, but it sure hits the spot.
-This is quenching.
-The mouthfeel is refined.
On tap at the Milwaukee Avenue location.

Tap at Lou Malnati’s on Rush. Aroma is grapefruit, strawberry jam, biscuit malt, hay. Appearance is clear dark orange with minimal head. Taste is mostly bitter grapefruit with some pine. Palate is clean. Really good beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is melon, grapefruit, tangerine, pine, honey, cereal. Taste is sweet initially with a bitter following that blends with a nutty finish. Overall this is an interesting IPA that is more grainy tasting than your typical representation.

Tap at AQ Bevolution 2nd Anniversary event at Yellow Ape Craft. Balanced nose, peachy, caramel, citrusy hopping. Clear medium amber color. Creamy caramel initial, very juicy hopping in mid, back to sweet malt in late mid and final. Medium body. Nice and chewy. Good balance, though it does get a bit sweet in final. A good standard IPA, juiced up a bit.
