notalush (5184) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Tap in a hotel bar in Chicago - served in a chilled glass, which may impact the rating - a bit thin and weak in the malt.department - simple, strong sweetness - strong citric hops - bitterness is a little abrasive in the finish - overall middle of road.

michaelinwa (625) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle, trade with jtjager. Pours with a low dense head, mild piney hop aroma, was expecting more there. Flavor is pretty mild in terms of hops, and lacking interesting notes. Slight lemon notes, thin palate.

OldMrCrow (2051) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Tap at a pizza joint in Chicago.

Warm amber pour, nice off-white head. Massive hop nose, piney and old-school and leafy. Flavor is rich and intense, tons of hop resin, to the point that I thought maybe this was an around 9% IIPA. But no, all this packed into 6.5. Solid!

jh773 (200) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Rich amber-orange color, relatively thick head. Aroma is juicy, grassy, some pine, mango, pineapple. Flavor is rich and complex; a little sweet, then bitter hops on the end. Itís like all the different flavor profiles from hops coming together in one beer - fruity, grassy, dank, some savory herb flavor, some vegetable flavor too. Lots of body but very drinkable. A really solid offering; one of the best IPAís that can easily be found in the Chicago/Midwest area.

goozen (3174) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2015
Can 0,35ltr: Clear orange colored brew with an sharp bitter taste with hints of citrus, honey and something tea-like. Brought to me by mine sister and her boyfriend from holiday in Chicago.

Berard (403) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Can. Pours orange with a mild haze and thin white head that lingers. Dank aroma over mild carbonation. Dark flavor with limited hop complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheSilentSaint (58) - Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours almost clear orange but on closer look you might see some grains. Head is Thick with about 2 inch head. Nose: hops and fruits. Mouth is light but full. Taste: hops, pines, citrus, fruity with malts to balance the hops. Fruity flavor is somewhat like hint of pineapple. smooth and nice to have. Overall like ability is good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SSSteve (3891) - - MAR 2, 2015
can. slightly hazy orange under a medium, frothy, white head. aroma of crystal malt and citrus hops. a generous amount of sweetness. crystal and honey like sweetness with light toasty breadiness. fruity citrusy hop profile goes well with the intense maltiness of the beer, but it nearly gets swallowed up. . this is definitely not a dry airy west coast style beer, buts its a great example of a beefy cold mid west ipa. medium bodied, yet finishes attenuated enough to drink a few together or with a meal. quite a niche!

CuzImHoppy (9) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2015 Small fizzy head with a floral and citrus aroma. fruity in the beginning but punches you with bitter in the end, has an earthy aftertaste. One of Chicagos finest canned IPAs.
