Served on-draught into a pilsner glass at Hopleaf in Chicago. Reviewed from notes taken in March. Expections were high given the brewery and this beer's reputation.
A: Pours a one finger beige colour head of bad (~1 minute) retention, decent cream, and fair thickness. Body colour is a clear rich pale copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Appealing for the style. I'm excited to try it.
Sm: Pale malts, muted fruit. Incredibly light; I hardly get anything. No yeast or alcohol comes through.
T: Floral hops, light nectary character. Pale malts. Bright fruit. Refreshing. Little bitterness here. It's pretty balanced. I like it. Fair complexity. Decent depth of flavour.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Slightly overcarbonated. Good thickness. Suits the flavour well.
Dr: Quite drinkable, but nowhere near as much as many have claimed. I'd buy it by the 6er, but it's not exceptional. Just a sessionable, enjoyable IPA.
09/25/13: I picked up a 6-pack earlier tonight and thought I'd include some more in-depth notes:
12 fl oz brown glass bottle with cool label art and branded pressure cap served into an Independence Brewing pilsner glass in me gaff in Austin, Texas. Reviewed live.
Served cold. Side-poured with standard vigor.
A: No bubble show forms as I pour.
Pours a one finger wide head of white colour. Nice creaminess and thickness. No lacing as the head recedes. Head retention is good - about 4-5 minutes - though the low ABV makes this less of a feat.
Body colour is a clear yellow-copper of above average vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. Transparent/translucent.
No obvious flaws. Not unique or special.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz can poured into a tulip glass. THis is the third one I've had today.
A: Translucent rust body with a two finger soapy bone colored head. Head went down quickly to a cap leaving good lacing.
S: Grapefruit and pine, along with some floral and citrus scents.
T: Slightly bitter some hopes are present in the taste.
M: Proper carbonation body while a bit thin for the style is thicker then many beers for the ABV
O Its a good IPA, I like that is session able however Its too expensive for what it is. Also its got a fair amount of body so while consumption is easier then most IPAs its harder then your average AAL, this makes it a bit more work to catch a buzz, although this could be seen as a positive for some I suppose.
Serving type: can
