3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange-brown-tan. Clean, refreshing IPA. Bold lemony citrus hop tones, with a clean, steady malt backbone. Approaching resinous and oily too, in a detracting way. Overall pretty enjoyable, quality offering, minty crisp. Flavorful, but has a burnt oily hop tone that I don’t enjoy.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
$4 draft special at the Deuce in Wrigleyville.Light, clear amber color with a tight, half-finger white head. Heavy hop smell, with lots of earthiness and more plain old bitterness. Taste is big with fresh hop flavor, yet the malt is bright, leading to very little aftertaste. More pine comes in further down the glass, giving this a nice, complex profile.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
It pours a golden yellow and gives the same color body with a one inch white foamy head in my pint glass. The smell is hop forward with some nice lingering malts that come through as the beer warms. The taste is basically the same. The mouthfeel is about a medium and smooth, slightly creamy. Overall, this is a great American IPA, get it if you see it.

12oz bottle-----> snifter. Pours a dark orangish straw with a small soapy white head. Smells of sharp citrus and mild biscuit. Floral, bitter hops dominate the front and back with some bready malt tossed into the middle. Medium palate with sufficient carbonation. Nice drinking everyday IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a cervoise glass.
Pours golden amber with orange hues; two finger bright white fluffy head. Above average retention and quite a bit of splotchy lacing. Citrus blossoms, grapefruit, and a hint of pine on the nose. Grapefruit rind bitterness right off the bat, met by some lightly sweet caramel malt and pineapple. Finishes crisp and dry with the return of bitter citrus rind. Lighter side of medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth and silky mouthfeel. Solid and enjoyable IPA.

A good though not exceptional IPA, on tap at Capone’s Restaurant. Big IBU, fruity and orange. Spider lace. Decent drinkability, however some bleach in the finish.
