Draft at the brewpub. Deep bronze. Wicked piney aroma and a following viscous outdoorsy hoppiness. Wicked. (#3891, 5/6/2010) NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Draft at Piece. Pours looking a lot like Camel Toe, glowing orange with a fluffy, frothy off white head. Nose is fantastic, showcasing amarillo and probably some ahtanum. Apricot, peach, resin. On taste, it is more subdued than CT, but they dry-hopped the heck out of it giving it a smooth/soft bitterness that is thrust at you with a ton of tropical flavors from the late edition hops. Pretty spectacular IIPA. puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Tap at the brewpub. Explosive grapefruit, tropical juices, lemon, cherry. Wow! Light body, screaming hop prowess, with a perfectly light bitterness to make this juicy enough even your kids would drink it. No sugar to be found. Perfect West Coast IPA, bursting with freshness. Can’t ask for much more than this in a IIPA. JaBier (7972) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2010
On tap at Piece. Opaque orange pour with a thin off-white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Tangy orange flavor with some malt and a bitter grapefruit finish that is nicely rounded. Very well executed beer, and it doesn’t surprise me a bit coming from these guys. msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2010 On tap at Piece. Pours dark hazy burnt orange with off-white head. Aromas of dank hops, citrus, tropical fuits, sweet caramel and some malt. Flavor has tons of citrus, sweet fruits, bitter hops, some caramel, and solid malt backbone. Finishes bitter and citrusy. This was a truly solid IIPA. Worth the trip to Piece alone.

Damn these guys make great beer. I haven’t had a bad one yet. This Imperial/Double IPA was really hoppy but balanced. Beautiful a string aroma of citrus, floral, hoppy, grapefruit and some sweetness. Pours a very nice dark orange with a small off-white head. Lots of lacing and pretty robust mouth feel. Taste is where it’s at with this beer. You can really pull out great flavors with each sip. Grapefruit, kiwi, guava, honeysuckle, grass, resin...it’s all in there. Another incredible brew from Chicago’s best. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2009

On draught at the brewpub. This brew is a hazy ruddy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Citrusy hops aroma with notes of malt and caramel. Rich body with flavors of hops, grapefruit, sweet malt and a bit of pine. The finish is resiny hops with a lingering bitterness left behind. Good all around. thetomG (246) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2010
Had this one on tap @ Piece.... an excellent DIPA overall.... not too sweet, not too bitter and this relatively high ABV is masked very well by the other flavors involved. Definitely worth trying if you’re in town when they’ve got it on draft. Very very tasty! danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2010
Served on tap at Piece. The appearance is a golden orange with a nice white head. The flavors and aromas are full of great grapefruit and orange rind, a real nice balance of sweet and bitter. Mouth is medium to full with a nice carbonated. A real nice surprise!
