Served in a tulip at Jake Melnick's in Chicago. From notes.
A - Golden umber, high effervescence for the style, big billowing white head of 3 fingers. Leaves intricate, heavy lacing. A stunner visually.
S - Grapefruit, pineapple, super bitter and earthy hops. A touch of sweetness from the malt emerges as well.
T - Tongue-numbing, palate destroying, citrus and grassy hops dominate. A hint of honey and fresh bread represent the malt bill, but they are very much on the defensive.
M and D - Thin to medium body, oily, finishes somewhat dry. The strong bitterness keeps you drinking.
An excellent Midwestern DIPA. I'd love it if the cans were available here.
Serving type: on-tap
