3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler fill from Kedzie taproom. Pours a clear reddish dark amber with smallish eggshell head that leaves good lacing. Aroma has fruity hops, caramel, nuts, and pine resin. Taste is slightly bitter at first, almost sweet in the malty middle, and then bitter with a touch of dankness in the long finish. Body is medium to full with only slight carbonation. This one does not drink like I expected a 95 IBU 9.6% ABV beer would. It is well balanced, and seems more modest than the same brewery’s Double Fist. I was expecting a big beer that would assault my senses and found instead a deceptively easy to drink IIPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Revolution Brewery. Deep copper/orange with a creamy tan head. Very intense caramel and fruity hop aroma with a heavy resin feel. Robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Pleasant fruity sweetness, but its all about the bitterness. Very dry and astringent, with a heavy malt backbone to go with the tremendous hoppiness of this beer. Astounding complexity and character, a world class IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap flight at the brewery. Reddish amber colored pour. Thick egg shell ring with bubvles the size of tapioca for a head. Very hoppy aroma. Earthy, tropical fruit hops. Taste is big and hoppy, even hoppier than the nose would indicate. Excellent lace on the glass. Taste is kerosene, juicy tropical fruits, and honeydew. Sweet malt holds it together. It’s syrupy but not cloying. The sweetness fades and the hops take over to give he finish an herbal and aromatic quality. Some heat but for the most part this beer drinks smaller than its ABV. Pretty balanced all things considered.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Logan Square brewpub. Malty sweet and a fair amount of German hop bitterness. Too hoppy for my taste, especially for a supposed tripel.

Tasted on tap at Revolution. It was a dark orange with a frothy white head. A subtle but delicious aroma of citrus hop. A bold yet smooth taste.
