on tap at RB chicago, pours a hazy orange with white head. nose has tangerine and grassy hop notes. flavors are grassy, tangerine, grapefruit, and an earthy resiny hop finish. a nice tight carbonation on a medium body. very tasty and dry ipa. this one sorta lacked that big hop aroma I’ve come to expect in Pete’s IPAs but with this he continues his successful quest, putting a fresh new IPA on every couple of months. keep it up!

Draft at RBC for release. Pours a slightly hazy apricot with offwhite head. Nose is super nice and clean. Tons of fresh hop notes, resin and a bit of funk. On taste, much smoother bitterness, much improvement has taken place in the past year or so and building better IPAs is one of Pete’s specialties. Nice and dry body as well. Good IPA.

Tap at rb Chicago... Pours a hazy light toffee brown with a soapy white head... Aroma of vibrant citrusy hops. Pretty assertive and delightful in a quaffable way ... flavors of creamy citrus hops that is really quality and drinkable all at once. Light to medium carbonation with a decent body
