4 oz. draft at Solemn Oath. Big pomegranate and apricot nose. Hazy gold color, and the thickest head of the four samples poured for me. Taste is similarly solid with tropical fruit, pine & bitterness.

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.
