From can at Old Chicago in Omaha. Pours a clear copper with a full antique lace head. Mild citrus and bread aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, biscuits and too much hop bitterness which dominates the malt excessively.

Pours a dense cloudy orange with medium off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma is earthy and malty. Taste has a rich malt flavor that balances the large earthy bitterness. Aroma in the front and aftertaste in the back are more enjoyable than the flavorful middle. All-in-all, itís not bad.

Rooftop patio in Des Moines. Works, dark amber color. Very hoppy and works great on a warm day in a cold mug.

Pours a deep amber with a large, clean and neat looking white head that settles nicely. The aroma has grassy hops, caramel, and some breadiness. Taste is a blend of malts and fruits. Malt is bready with some caramel notes. The fruitiness that this one contains seems to be strawberry and apple. There is a healthy amount of pine that is noticed throughout drinking. Aftertaste is that pine and fruit. Medium bodied, with a thick texture, with an above average amount of carbonation. Maybe not my favorite among this style, but its easy to enjoy.

A - Pours a hazy dark amber with a big off-white head. Good retention and nice 3D lacing.
S - Big caramel/toffee malt, rich and bready, some oranges, peaches, some leafy and spicy hops.
T - Toffee malt, very bready and yeasty. Has a toasty graininess as well. Good amounts of sweet ruby red grapefruit that transforms into a full on grapefruit bitterness and grows stronger and spicier through the finish. The malt a is dense and carries through as well.
M - Moderate lush carbonation, dense, medium to full body, dry finish from the hops.
Good stuff here. Itís more of a hefty ESB rather than a DIPA. Itís great to drink at room temp. Very malty and yeasty. Itís a different take on either style. Recommended.

Solid hops nose. Flavor has citrus, candi sugar and biscuit going on. Huge hop punch early on followed by strong sweet malt. Really liked it

Interesting that this is called an ESB on the can and an IPA here, because when we were drinking this I commented on what an IPA-ish ESB this is. So, yeah, this is like a full bodied, slightly malty IPA. I liked it. Thanks to theisti for the trade!

Fantastic, pillowy, lush head - - delicious on its own. Then silky smooth sipping - - before the hops start to bite home. Bigger and far more assertive than most anything in any pub from Newquay to Newcastle, the hops get good and stiff, but some candy-like malt keeps it friendly. A really unique and worthwhile brew. Itís fun to drink stuff like this.
