From old notes. Draft somewhere, I believe in rockford. Tropical and citrus fruits dominate with a decent malty backbone. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Revolution. Amber pour with a white head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and bready malt. Some grassy hops, a bit of floral hop character as well, and some pine. Sweet caramel malt and lots of toast on the palate. Light grassy and pine bitterness. A decent floral hoppiness. Okay.

Cask at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber gold with a bubbly white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of pine with hint of bitter citrus and resin backed by earthy grains. Flavor has much more of a bread and earthy grain with some earthy pine underlying.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating from notes. On draft at the brewpub. Pours a rich orange with an off white head. Aroma of sweet bready malts, mild dough, crisp lager yeast, and floral and grassy hops. Flavor is bitter, strong fruity and hoppy bitterness. This is balanced by a fair amount of caramel and cakey malt sweetness. Full bodied, lively carbonation. Finishes with a citrus bitterness.

Much like a standard IPA. Tropical fruits, some herbal, citrus, pine, malt is still there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at the Milwaukee Avenue Brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours an amber orange hue, faint haze, lively carbonation and a nice orange alluring glow throughout. A small whitish head atop sticks as a small layer, laces as a ring. Aromas are mellow, non distinct with some earthy hops, gentle florals, bread, and faint spice. Faint hop expression, mellow sweet grainy malt bill. Dry, but not offering much. Initial is medium bodied, bready and gentle biscuity element meets a firm earthy hopping. Decent florals, spice, a bit of biscuity malt. Front end shows that decent citrusy hop, middle starts to fade out where a grainy and biscuit malt feel, bready elements stick around. For itís ABV size, it is well hidden. But the beer itself doesnít offer a ton of of hops like itís advertised. As it warms, a but more expression rounds out the backend and finish. Mellow citrus rind but really more floral overall. Bit of grapefruit, spice, soap, and easy going body as we move back. Finish is a touch sweet, spice, with some of that floral feel lingering. Ok.
