At the brewery, Man reading the description I was excited. Sounds like how I describe some of the best (I)IPAs out there. Well I get the beer and Im not getting the citrius hop bomb im expecting. Much more subdued, with a bad beer stink to it. Slightly bitter on the back end. Maybe I’m spolied since I drink Zombie dust on a regular basis, but this doesnt live up to any expectations or hype. I’ve had worse IPAs, but either the bottle was old or the date was unknown, for a brewery fresh IPA, this is at the bottom of my list.

I recently had this at Arrowhead Country Club in Wheaton, IL. This is my kind of IPA, sweet citrus aroma, smooth extra hoppy taste, nice crisp bite of after taste.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Light orange with good, foamy, white head / Fruity, creamy nose of orange, pineapple, weed, pine, cream / Medium body, a hint watery, some astringency, with lots of bitterness on finish / Somewhat thin, very bitter flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, pine / The thin body and high astringency are a let down after the spectacular nose. A disappointing effort, but it happens, for this stellar new brewer.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy with an ester rich aroma. Fruity at first. Evolves into something without too much malt, which I love, but there's a thin hop finish which in this case could possibly have been improved by the addition of some extra malt. Not un-bitter, but not too gracious on the a.a. either.
