4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the tap at Hopleaf in Chicago. Medium yellow to orange color, white head. Big nose of citrus, lemon and orange peel, maybe some mango. Taste is big and full with a hop blast and balancing malts. Hop bias, as would be expected from a DIPA. Pleasant hoppy finish, not too bitter. Very nice.

On tap @ Strong Ale 2013. Hazy orange pour with a nice white head. Aromas of fruity pebbles, pineapple, tangerine, and orange zest. A hint of lemon, some pine, and a light malt sweetness. Really nice fruity flavor and sweetness. Mild bitterness of pine and citrus peel. Lots of fruity pebbles, pineapple, and tangerine. Solid.

Bottle. The pour is a vibrant orange with little head. The aroma is full of sweet hops, very nice. The taste is awesome. A perfect mix of hops, a hint of bitterness in the end.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the 3 FFFs on 30 November, 2013. Hazy pale yellow color head died pretty quickly. The nose is an IPA that displays cat urine in all its glory. The middle of the body has a decent amount of caramel and biscuit malt with some sweet grain hints but really from start to finish its hops. Finish is mostly bitter hops of citrus pith, grapefruit and some light resin tones and mangos. And again the cat pee. Something about that cat pee that gets people excited!! Texture of the brew is dry.
I donít have a mullet and I donít think anything could make me want to grow oneÖ. As far as this beer, itís good but Iím not growing my hair out.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle and served in my new FFF Pint glass: Pours a deep golden hue with an initial frothy head and good lace. The aroma is quite fruity with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple and some resiny piney hop esters. Biscuity and slightly caramel vapours too. The taste is leafy hop goodness wrapped around solid fruit and faint dank notes. Moderate sweet malts support the hop notes and leads to a touch of metallic finish. The mouth feel is a tad sticky and warming with some tea baggy notes. Overall it is a good but not great beer, seems a bit under attenuated and loses punch midway through the glass.
