2/8 - Mo Dailey’s (Chicago) Draft - One of my favorite IPAs, and fortunate to live in Chicago where it is served in many bars. Mild hoppy taste, not very strong. I love the taste. The revolution will not be televised, but it will continue to be ordered by me at a bar near you. scarletfire65 (1531) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Draft at Palmer House Hotel in Chicago. Nose is a bit malty with some mild stonefruits. Soft palate, mild bitterness, pleasant soft fruitiness. A bitter but not aggressive IPA. chicagobears (481) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2015
I’ve had this IPA many times and was surprised that i hadn’t rated it when I went to check. This is my go to Chicagoland IPA. Always fresh an amazing hop profile. Citrus and pine though this is more on the lemony side of an IPA. The dryness lingers and has a sweet caramel malt backbone. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Canned December 1, 2014.jeffbigD (134) - - JAN 25, 2015
Glass: New Belgium globe glass.
Appearance: Hazy amber body with a short light tan head that quickly dissipates to a thin messy coating.
Aroma: The aroma is super mild, not offensive, but nothing is going on in it. Light tea like aroma, but nothing else going on.
Taste: Very light tea-like flavor, mild bitterness and some light malts. Pretty bland.
Palate: Medium bodied and crisp.,
Overall: This is one of the most bland IPAs I’ve had. Totally inoffensive. It doesn’t cater to the better beers I’ve had even from "mediocre" NJ brewerys.
Great blend of hops and grains on this one. Very good carbonation and texture. Overall solid ipa.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2015 12oz can. Canned 12/01/14. Pours a slightly hazy copper orange with a one finger, off white head that leaves great rings. Aroma is a big, juicy pine and orange citrus with resin, floral, and a touch of caramel. Yum. Taste is balanced with citrus, pine, resin, mild, sweet caramel, and a slight earthy/grass/herbalness at the end. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a slight resin texture. Very easy drinking. Overall this is a great beer. Big, bright citrus, pine, and resin flavours with a few floral notes and a great mouth feel. sloth (2955) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Medium sized, white head with good retention and a spotty lace. Clear, amber/copper hued brew. Nice little citrusy nose, tame, slightly floral. Lightly medium bodied, nice carbonation, sorta thin. Citrusy hop flavors backed by lightly sweet malts, slightly grainy, hint toasty. Fairly dry finish is a tad perfumy with a tame bitterness. Decent. Props to MOTORTODDHEAD for the 4 pack! riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Really pleasant balanced IPA. Nose of floral and citrus hops up front. Mild caramel and pale malt base with a hint of toast. Orange golden pour nice frothy head. Flavors of a balance between caramel and pale malt, citrus and then floral hips, light toasted notes and a peppery herbal finish. Smooth and drinkable. Well done.

Of all the easily available IPAs in Chicago, I pick this one as my staple. Love the hop profile, drinkable yet still packs a punch.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 The aroma is resiny, earthy, piney hops with grapefruit, grass, black pepper, and some rye bread. The mouthfeel is medium, with moderate carbonation and a medium body for a firm effect. The taste is medium-high bitter, peppery and spicy and, to a lesser extent, grapefruity. It finishes dry. Solid and very flavorful, even though it’s not my preferred type of IPA.
