On tap during CBC weekend at Sheffields, Chicago. I had a pint and a half of this stuff and could have kept drinking. One of the more intensely bitter IPAs Iíve had in a while, this smelled wonderfully flowery and fresh. The dominant impressions in the mouth are the dark, dirty bitterness and a persistent citric sourness that was more like lime than grapefruit (which is what Iím accostomed to). The malts provide the perfect backdrop to the bitterness, staying subtle and never reaching a bready or sweet quality that would detract from the dryness.

Pours golden amber , nose is, resin and piney. Palate is well rounded mix of layered hops and perfectly selected malts. This beer is the definition of balanced. Nice lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.

Piney aroma with a good malt presence as well. Golden orange color, oddly still. Sharp bitter flavor, fades to a long, dry sweet malt. Body is not particularly hearty, as if it needed some extra carbonation. Moderately strong well balanced IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly cloudy orange color. Aroma of pine and some malts. Pretty damn bitter in the taste. This isn't usually something I look for in this style. Also a tad on the thin side.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; bright amber pour with thin white head, sweet malt aroma, not getting much hop out of this out of balance malts are predominate with some mandarin and caramel, looking at other reviews should be hoppier canít see bottling date, could be old and hop resins have dissipated.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light appearance with virtually no head. Aroma is typical of IPAs, this one being pretty strong and dominated by pine and grass. The flavor is incredibly potent and a bit off putting. Too much citrus dominating the caramel malts.

Enjoyed on tap at HopCat. Served in a nonic pint.
A: Pours a solid orange color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a solid ring that leaves some sticky lace down the glass.
S: A little melon and fruity berry on the nose. Some caramel malt sweetness with a hint of biscuit.
T: The taste is like the nose, but a tad sweeter. Candied melon with fresh picked strawberry. Some light grass with some caramel sweetness and a biscuity malty.
M: Medium to light bodied with a medium high carbonation. Easily drinkable with a sweet fruit finish.
O: Really easy drinkable with a solid balance of flavors. Definitely the best Shortís beer Iíve ever had.
Serving type: on-tap
