12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a finger of thick yet frothy white head. Aroma is mostly citrus with loads of grapefruit and tropical fruits. Slight caramel aroma. Medium bitter and lightly sweet. Loads of tropical fruits like pineapple with a good bit of grapefruit and citrus. A good dose of caramel too. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Very soft carbonation but a decently long finish. Overall, pretty darn good. I would be happy to drink this again!

From B and C. Hop heads probably won’t be to big on this as it is a very malty but not very hoppy IPA. The hops were medium bitter but quite spicey herbal piney. As and IPA maybe not so much but overall it wasn’t so bad. Serving: Bottle

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Had this at Elwoods tap. Pours deep golden, close to amber. little to no head, but a swirl produces a nice, light-tan film of foam. mellow aroma with malty caramel and light pine. taste is a bit more aggressive, with alot more bitterness than was evident from the aroma. medium body and carbonation.

Golden-amber with big, foamy, beige head / Dry, musty nose of barley and citrus / Medium body, very sweet, somewhat malty and syrupy, with lots of bitterness / Sweet flavors of dry hop and muted grapefruit and orange / Needs work.

jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Not too bad, but it could have used a lot more hops. Bread, yeast, malt, with some dark fruit like plum or raisin. Decent finish with a chewy mouth feel. Noticeable alcohol.

bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Draft at Courtyard downtown Chicago. Poured bright gold and clear. Mild piney nose. Taste is dry and with a nice fresh hop profile. Sessionable and enjoyable.

[:39] Fucken a bro this shit is some garbage. Pour an amber red with an off white head. Bitter soap, heavy caramel malt, and loads of unfermented sugars round out this filth. Bitter sweet finish. U jokin?

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours a very hazy, deep orange color with a quick falling white head. Aroma has a very strong lemon profile, light bitterness, strong toasted malts at the tail end. Flavor starts off with a strong lemon, mild tropical fruit with a light touch of a grassy, stale bitterness followed by a mild grainy ending. Body is light and very fizzy. Overall all a definite "meh" IPA. Flavors don’t work very well together and lack any smooth transitioning seen in a solid IPA. Definitely not something I will have again, albeit a very neat label as anything with Avogadro’s number is going to pull my eye in instantly.

2.9
ryecatcher (1459) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours an amber color, white head, so-so retention, nose is pine, citrus with some malt. Mouth is fruity hops, malt and a sweetness that lingers, cloyingly so at the end. Average.
