The initial aroma is fantastic. Big fruit punch notes. After it warms a little, that big notes fades into a more pedestrian but really good IPA. If I could bottle that first aroma though.

A really smooth ipa. Very citrusy and not very hoppy. Pours very light in color. Smells hoppy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the annual Chicago Beer Society’s picnic, and self served to a clear, plastic shaker showing a hazed, orangy gold color, with a decent head of off white/creamy foam. The nose was pine, expressive citrus as grapefruit, and some tropical fruit notes. Lightly sweet, with a lingering, earthy, rindy bitterness, coupled with some grapefruity astringency. Came off a bit harsh to me, but not a bad IPA.

12oz pour at Bad Apple. Hazy orange appearance with an off white head. Pineapple, grapefruit, tropical fruity, a touch piney hoppy aroma. A little resiny, grapefruit, pineapple fruity, hoppy flavor. Alright.
