Really not to my liking at all. Thick yellow color. The aroma has its moments with some baby powder like floral notes but then in the flavor there is simply too much malt--vegetable and grass. Murky flavors. Not enjoyable. Bottle in Chicago.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is a complex mix of spices, citrus, bread/malts and pine. The flavor is fruit, citrus, malts, slight earthiness and a mix of bitter and slight heat in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden to amber in color. Tallest eggshell color head. Caramel and cereal scents along with orange zest, spruce and grass. Light sweet start. Light slightly zippy feel. Mild bitterness creeps and crescendos. Some citrus oils and pepper wander about. Warming in the stomach. Long linger of bitterness with some more orange oils.

Very hoppy taste. Pours a cloudy golden hue. Aroma has a citrus smell to it, possibly lemon or orange. No alcohol presences with this beer. A very well balanced IPA

Poured cloudy orange with a huge, quickly fading off white head. A nice piney, citrus aroma. Not as hoppy as most IPA’s, but a bit more malt forward. A nice brew from a local Illinois brewer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle from Kaser - thanks!
Aroma - Orangy - some dankness...not too tropical
Appearance - hazy golden pour with 2 fingers of fluffy head.
Taste - I feel like I’ve had this taste before...nothing unique about it.
Overall - good beer, not great. The ratings on this beer are accurate.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
22oz bottle. Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma is of juicy hops, and that’s about it. Smells very soapy. Taste is of juicy bitter hops for about a second. When that second is up, there is nothing. Just a quick bitter hop taste. Very disappointing. Smells great, but nothing much after that.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange with 1 finger wide head. Smell pines and hops. Feel is light with medium carbonation. Taste is that of a good hop. Nice bitter hops. Aroma and taste hoes well together. Not an extraordinary IPA but I can have it again!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Deep amber with a big khaki head. Dank, resiny hops, caramel and pineapple. Taste is pretty sweet but balanced with a big hoppy finish. Body is heavier with a sticky, foamy feel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is a citrus sweet and warm caramel blend. It pours a light yellow-orange, oily clear body topped by a soapy white head with a thick ring retained. The surface is covered by a generous island of foam and it leaves a good amount of web-like lace. It’s highly bitter with a light/medium-light sweetness. There’s lots of soft carbonation to go with a light oily texture. The medium full body finishes with sweet citrus, and a herb spice, along with a touch of caramel. There’s a light, lingering resin and citrus aftertaste.
