Another one of the varieties in my beerkraft order. Really surprised by this had no idea something worthwhile could come out of Chicago other than a Navy recruit. Right from popping the top I knew I was in for a treat. the piney aroma oozed forth and pushed itself upon my nostrils, thrusting its hoppy splendor against the wall of my senses. Pours a medium golden color with a decent head and the lacing starts almost immediately. It smells like a herb garden with the piney penetrating me easily.It tastes wonderful, light, hoppy, citrusy with some fruit/floral qualities. Mouthfeel is splendid. I could only hope for a splendid beer like this to assault my senses on a regular basis. Nice sessionable beer and overall a great American IPA not from the west coast. Cheers.
