COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(kidnapped-by-vikings) Bursting with fresh hop aroma, our American IPA has a light malty sweetness to balance the dominant, pine/citrus hop presence.

Nose is mildly hoppy. Taste is citrusy up front with some malt and a bitter finish. Nothing stands out. Ok

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.

22oz bottle pours cloudy toasted red orange with a finger of head. Nose is soft faint citrus. Taste is weird bubblegum, buttery, vegetal pine. Finish is creamy bitter buttery herbs. Not good.

TheArgoPirate (92) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Narnad (1502) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2014
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.

Dogbrick (9361) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2014
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
