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

Tap at Durty Nellies, served in a shaker. Bright quomquat orange color with a sticky white foam head. I can smell the hops at arms length. Up,close the fragrance is citrus fruit. Taste is bitter citrus, think lemon and orange pith but with a touch of wet hair and a moderately resinous finish. My first impression is that this is a little thin in the mouth...but then I snapped out of it. Iím too damn used to big malty IIPAs that I almost forgot what an IPA should taste like. Itís hop forward but not over the top and is growing on me with every sip. Enjoyable.

This is an excellent ipa. Really smooth with a hint of wheat. Nice and bitter and pours a golden yellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head. The aroma is fruity citrus. Orange, peach, pineapple, grapefruit, with these elements being well balanced. The taste is still heavy in citrus with lots of grapefruit noticed. In addition, there is some light pine, herbal hops, and resin. Upon drinking, this one is clean, crisp, and refreshing. Medium in body, with a slick and smooth texture. This is from a brewery that Iím unfamiliar with that I should get to know more. I really enjoyed this.

Poured in Pint glass. Pours light amber. Citrus pine, floral, and sweet nose. Starts bitter then mellows out nicely with sweet malt. A great standard IPA.

Pont at hopleaf. The IPA poured a hazy golden color with small white head and modest lacing. The aroma was a piney hop mixture. The flavor is nicely bitter with a good citric pine note. The carbonation was average for this medium body ale. The aftertaste was nicely bitter with some pine nuts..

This is certainly a delicious and impressive IPA, but the mediocre score Iím giving it is rooted in itís strange aroma. My partner and I couldnít quite put our finger on the scent, which isnít necessarily a telling signal, but also not something great, either. The flavor was the best, with some subtle pine notes and a nice sweet texture. Would drink again.

On tap at Whirlyball in Vernon Hills to celebrate my other brotherís 40th. Pours orangey-brown with a bit of an off-white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has fresh fruit, citrus and some resin. Taste is of bitter citrus, resin, somewhat sticky with some sweet caramel. Well balanced. Finishes nicely bittersweet and long. Very nice IPA; everything I am looking for when I go to a place and order one.
