This beer was brewed especially for the 2009 Oak Park micro brew and food review which was put together by seven generations ahead.

The base beer is a one year old IPA that was re-dry hopped with fresh/wet hops twice.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
Pale orange, hazy colour. A little bit of light frutiness as well as some nice fruitiness and light spice. Soflty resiny with a more typical pine cone character toward the back. Fruit and light spice with a spicy hoppiness. A pretty solid IPA

Pours hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma of lemon and grapefruit. Good flavor with a lot of bitterness and not much fighting back the hops, which I like. Quality IPA.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Tap at the Brewpub: Hazy/cloudy golden with a dense white well retained head. Zesty fresh and bright aroma of Centennial lemony fresh hop aromatics. Clean. Crisp on the palate with a light end of a medium body. Flavor is the same with a crisp bright citric lemon hop flavor and just a hint of mild pale malt in the middle to make the moderately piny finish welcoming. A decent IPA.

draught at 2009 oak park micro brew and food review. aroma is of strong grapefruit with some resin notes. sunny appearance. lingering bitterness with more sticky resin. grapefruit esters continue. fruit bouquet pushes this into strong territory.

on tap at the brewpub. pours hazy golden with white head. huge grapefruit and piney aroma, continuing into the flavor as this is a big west coast style ipa.
