A golden IPA with a thin resilient lacing white head. A light c-hops aroma, restrained like it was hidden in the malts. In mouth, a light IPA with light and pleasant hops dancing in your mouth, a bit anemic. Good malt base. Medium bodied. On tap at Jerry’s, Chicago, May 16 2009.

Bottle shared by JW77 at Diegos. Orange amber pour. Light head. Aroma is piney, citrus, orange peel, honey and spice. Flavor is quite hoppy, tons of resinous pucker factor here! The orange is noticeable at the end and adds quite an interesting twist. Thanks JW.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a transparent deep glowing bronze with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of fresh resiny citrusy hops and some orange peel with a decent amount of sweet caramel and honey character. Body starts with good fullness and sweet caramel maltiness balanced with a crisp, citrusy orange hoppy character before a drier bittersweet finish. A pretty good, very fresh tasting IPA.
