Excellent balance for a double IPA. It has a great balance of caramel malt and resin and citrus flavors. Excellent citrus nose as well.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is an IIPA that almost reaches the "good" level in my book. It has a MASSIVE head rivaling some Belgians. That head is a pain in the ass because it takes a good while to dissipate so that you can actually drink it. The aroma is booze, caramelized sugars, orange and grapefruit. The taste is caramel, more orange than grapefruit, piney hops and that peppery note mentioned on the label - and also that booze. The alcohol is a bit too overpowering in the taste and drowns out the other flavors slightly. It’s OK, but definitely not one I care to have again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with a very high amount of carbonation, borderline champagne. Huge head evolves from and ultimately leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma has a very large amount of grapefruit and orange citrus with a light pine coming in late and is rounded out with a light caramel malt sweetness. Flavor has a lot of grapefruit and orange up front which transitions to some alcohol heat. The alcohol combines to create a hot, fruity middle with a sweet caramel malt finish. Body is modest with a very high amount of carbonation which forces the retention of the very large head. Overall a good brew but the alcohol is 10% and you can feel it with ever sip. I find this a bit distracting in the brew as the head is so prevalent. The flavors are pretty standard and make for an okay beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a rich dark amber pour with a huge khaki colored head. Aroma is floral hops with lots of citrus, grapefruit peel, pine, and caramel notes. Flavor is fairly bitter with a mild fruity sweetness. Some strong caramel and ice tea malt sweetness as well. Full bodied, very carbonated, with a medium bodied. Finishes long and bitter.

A great up and coming brewery out of the Chicago area with very unique and interesting twists on many classic flavors that, to my knowledge, is only available currently on tap. This IPA is one of their more typical characters, but it works well. Very nice hop presence, without being too bitey for me. It has a very smooth mouthfeel that seems to lose carbo quickly.
