I tried this on tap at Cooper's bar on Belmont in Chicago. Nice 7 page beer menu. I selected this one from the page that read "What's new on tap?" Served to me in a pint glass for $5.
The beer poured a mostly clear orange/copper color with a 2-finger off- white head with dcent retention. The beer left toms of lacing on the glass.
Big citrus and piny hop aroma. Mostly grapefruit with some apricot in the background.
Big pine and grapefruit flavor with apricot coming out as it warms a bit. Bready malt used for balance. 62 IBU's gives you an idea of the strength of the bitterness.
Medium bodied and creamy smooth mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium.
This is a very tasty beer, especially if you like grapefruit flavored hops. I'll be anxious to see if it tastes the same in bottles and cans if I can find it.

Poured a pale orange body with a big, frothy head that left lace down the glass. A strong citric and floral hop smell. An easy to drink IPA that is simple with a mix of light citric hops and some caramel malt to balance with sweetness. Lighter-bodied IPA that passes smoothly but does kick in with a little dry backbite. I'd have another of these although nothing special here.
Had this beer a second time almost five years late in July, 2014 and poured a reddish gold with two finger head and lace ring down glass. Citric hop aroma is prevalent and the beer is smooth, light, easy to drink, balanced with citric hops and touch of grape and caramel sweet malts. Excellent finish that makes this beer a must-have.

Fantastic. The beer pours a nice orange/yellow with a nice head that trails the glass. The smell had a lot of great hop notes to it while also getting a little bit of sweetness from the malt. The taste was similar with pine and floral notes from the hops and then a mellow crisp finish. A very well balanced beer that made for a delicious experience. Would definitely recommend.
