COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An intense Double IPA brewed for the "hopheads" of the world. This robust ale is so full of malt and hops that you can almost chew on it. Served in a snifter to bring out all of the nuances of malt, hop, and alcohol.

I thought that this was a well balanced beer with some nice citrus undertones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasty, little bit of bitterness but would never guess 8abv. This could be a dangerous one.

Can. Appearance: Turbid, very opaque orangu copper colored with fluffy, uniform 3-finger off-white head. Nose: Delicious, this aroma is juicy and wet, super hoppy, with big tropical fruit, tangerine, mango, pineapple, piney hops, black pepper, mild funk. Wonderful aroma. Taste: Earthy, slightly funky caramel malt, resiny hops, tropical fruit, semi-sweet. Palate: Fairly dense, high level of complexity, very fresh and juicy and flavorful. I love these Onion beers, and I love seeing great beers continue to pour out of cans.

Highly aromatic: floral, citrus, fruity, and earthy hops. Hop flavor is pine and resin like. High IBUs but very balanced with the malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a great looming orange opaque with a perfect head. Aroma is great, light and soft. Flavor is sour, like a grapefruit. A little strong, but tasty. I appreciate the beer in this style not being so heavy with the malted hops.

Great and I mean GREAT IPA. Nice citrus smell, and excellent hoppy taste with a piney bitterness at the end. Truly wonderful, and it comes in a can.

Murky peach with a wispy tan head and patchy lacing. Aroma of citrus, mango, pine and caramel. Taste of citrus, pine, caramel, a hint of garlic and some caramel. Aggressively hopped with high bitterness.

Had on draft at the brewery/pub, Barrington, IL. Have to say, I am surprised such a decent brew lies just 20 min from my house. Aroma was pleasant, 1-finger head, nice looking beer. The taste was very nice, a nice mix of hoppy fruitiness without a harshness afterwards. I could drink a bunch of this stuff. The 8.0 ABV% is masked very well. Happy to know of another local brewpub up here in Lake County, IL in addition to Tighthead, etc. Would definitely have this again.

Had it on tap at Loafers in Chicago, poured a nice hazy amber hue with a light head and no lacing, and a pleasant hop aroma. The taste is a smooth bitter hop caramel flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 Hazy oragish brown with a two finger head creamy and lacing.Good hop aroma pine spice some floral and fruit with malt.Taste is smooth malty creamy,orange like sweetness with a bittering finish that is not all that bitter but enough to finish it off with a lingering bitterness and hop presence,hop flavor is somewhat orangish pine, resiony/grassy-mildly with a bit of that roasted malt kind of bitterness.Solid very good well made double ipa,delicious and kind of refreshing with the mellow citrusness of the hops.One of the best or the best local ipa ive had.
