On tap. Copper orange body with a small white head. The aroma is fairly hoppy, (citrus and resin) but not enough to hide some nice biscuit/toasted malt. The flavor is similar, and generally well balanced. Pretty decent.

Sampler at the brewpub. This version uses Simcoe instead of Chinook and also comes in at 9.2 abv and 85 IBU. Dark golden color, halo lacing but not sticky at all. Aroma, SMACK on my nose with a strong hop mix that speaks to my inner hop-soul. Its all sweet mango tropical fruit sugar hops. There is just a hint of a little bit of grass underneath that. But I love this nose. It was made for me. Flavor loses some of that tropical punch due to a moderate- strong bitterness. Bitterness particularly takes over in the aftertaste by pushing such me of my tropical flavors out. Still a nice mix if you are looking for hop bitterness. Nicely lean malt behind all that.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a richly hazed amber hue, richly mellow haze. Frothy haze, gentle frothy ring. Mellow frothy ring laces small. Aromas are some good grapefruit and florals, medium bitter qualities show rind, grapefruit, and lemons. Rich florals, some bready malts, biscuits, gentle sweetness. Lemons, gentle florals, and grass. A firm body. Initial is medium bodied, good flavors. Firm bitterness, gentle lemon, orange peel, and firm bitter florals. A bit girthy, a bit floral and bitter at times. The beer has some good points with grapefruit, biscuits, bready malts, some toffee, toast, and gentle sweetness. Meh. Ok DIPA.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear pale orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has strong pine with resin and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has pine with a hint of flora and transitions to citrus and resin in the finish.
