Had this on draft over the weekend. Cloudy orange color. Lite on the hops taste yet very refreshing and very smooth on the palate. This is one I would defiantly get again and again.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with limited white head that mostly dissipates quickly. Light grapefruit aroma. Taste is light caramel maltiness with grapefruit, grassy and piney bitter hops. Decent IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Really nice copper, thick foamy two finger head. Nice lacing.
S: Can’t really tell what I am smelling in this one. I get bready notes with the smell of the carbonation. Some caramel and pine.
T: Toasty bready malt backbone with some caramel sweetness. Not much in the taste of hops
M: A little thin but not a lot of sweetness and easy to drink.
O: This was just okay for me in the bottle, however I remember really liking this much much better on draft.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clean orange color with a low, foamy, white head that quickly fades. Aroma has a strong citrus nose with light pine notes. Some light sweetness from the grain bill but the hops definitely dominates this brew. Flavor has a strong pine flavor up front with a modest/strong grapefruity kick following it. The malt and alcohol stays in the background keeping it a bit more dryer which is extremely welcomed by this rater. The body is perfect with a light body paired with sharp carbonation and pronounced dryness that compliments the pine/grapefruity character of the beer well. With the low alcohol and low sweetness it puts the focus on the hops and prevents a cloying sweetness or grain alcohol extracted hops flavor some recent IPAs exhibit. The bitterness in this brew is perfect. Overall a new go to beer for this rater.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Hopleaf. The beer is a cloudy orange-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of grapefruit, hops and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at Clark street ale house in Chicago. Slight hop aroma. Pours a golden amber. Very fruity with a quick bitter finish. Not a great balance

Probably the weakest of the five I tasted today at the brewery tap room. Medium yellow color. Not a lot on the aroma. Taste is subdued hops and not a lot of malt. Mouthfeel seems to be very "light". More of a pale ale to me than an IPA.
