SotallyTober (23) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy copper orange with big egg shell color head. Light retention and lacing throughout. Aromas of citrus, caramel, and pine. A well balanced taste that was mildly bitter upfront that faded out to a nice nutty malt finish. Medium body that went down smooth, and was slightly chewy on the palate. Overall this was refreshing, and a good session IPA.

BierMeHoos (148) - Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2014
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 Iíve 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

gregnsteve01 (20) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
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

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
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.

Kroney (158) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Tap at Lou Malnatiís 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.

vmilaxer29 (408) - North Dakota, USA - NOV 9, 2014
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.
