3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2017 Cask sampling at Chicago Beer Society’s Day of the Living Ales, and dispensed to my fest glass showing a hazed, orangey/gold color, with a bubbly layer of off white foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was tart, pineapple, and citrus. Ditto on the flavor, with fair carbonation, pronounced citrus & rind-like bitterness, under control but noticeable alcohol presence, and a dry finish. Lesser abv. at 8.3%, and dry-hopped with Denali in the FV. A solid DIPA.

Draft pour at Mickey Finns. White creamy head. Vanilla and pineapple fruity taste. A ton of flavor to this one. Delicious.

On tap at the source during the Wedding weekend. Orange pour, little head. Nose is tropical, pineapple, grapefruit, some pine. Nice. Taste is tropical, strong and bittersweet, with some toffee malts. A bit rough. Much more like a heavily ABV IPA, as it is missing some depth. 13.7

Great light copper color with a nice white head. Good lacing. Strong hoppy flavor with more citrus than pine notes. Good light mouthfeel while still having notable body and tingle on the tongue. I'm a big fan of this beer. This is one they do very well whereas others are just average.

On cask, a really good looking beer, dark bright brown, almost mahogany, awesome light tan head, looks super creamy, good lace... Very sweet nose, vanilla pound cake with pineapple, a bit of pine resin, ok... A sweet pineapple ipa, a bit soapy but pretty tastey... This is a 100 times better then the version I had at piece barleywine event
