On tap. Pours a medium gold with a white head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of citrus, pine, and grass, and the same notes are in the flavor followed by a bitter middle and bitter, slightly sweet aftertaste over a medium-heavy body.

Bottle: Color pale yellow, hint of orange. Aroma: Rotten fruit/Grapefruit. Flavor: Biting grapefruit flavor with hints of lemon and citrus. Smooth yet extremely tart finish.

This is a nice thick IPA that has good balance but still a bite of bitterness as the end. A little sweet on the palate. Very good IPA but not the best. jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pours a clear light amber with two fingers of creamy white head that never completely disappears and leaves excellent lacing. The nose smells of grapefruit and mango with some pine and grass aromas. Taste is of tropical fruit with a herbal component and a grassy bitterness that is strong but not overwhelming. Has the tiniest amount of sweetness but it is perceptible. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied with crisp carbonation. A hop forward and drinkable IPA.

Draft pour at Whip In. Pours clear amber with a white finger head. Sticky white lacing all down the glass. Smells of hops and a variety of sweet fruits ad citrus akin to a great IPA. Flavor is faintly fruity with a full hop and malt balance. Light and enjoyable IPA for any time of year. tmoreau (4365) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
Sampled at a recent Wirtz Beverage/Illinois seminar, and poured by the staff from bombers to stemware showing a clear, golden color, with creamy, off white head foam, and decent spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was light mid-fruit sweetness, resin, then grapefruity citrus. The flavor boasted a pronounced hop bitterness rounded nicely by the malt. Medium bodied, bold, yet rather sessionable. trumpetskid (106) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours gold with a white head. Piney hop aroma with some malt. Taste is bitter piney hops, a touch of citrus, and a decent malt back bone.
