3.68/5 rDev +2.2%
Sample: On-Tap 2012
A: Golden orange in color, pours a small foamy white head, moderate internal carbonation, decently hazy throughout
S: Pretty standard aromas for an IPA, tropical fruits, citrus and hops, moderately fragrant overall, some coriander notes
T: Flavor begins strong with heavy tropical fruits and citrus, not overly bitter, just the right amount of sweetness, but finishes very empty, like a story without an ending, still flavorful, though
M: Smooth and well balanced, refreshing and easy to drink, light citrus aftertaste, not overly drying or lingering on the palate
O: A nice IPA all-around but lacks any special qualities, dull but representative of its style and quite palatable

Pours a deep gold with a white head.
Pine hops and caramel aroma.
Grapefruit and pine hops flavor with some light caramel malt.
Medium to light body with a light carbonation.
Average but drinkable IPA. The Uppity is far superior, but this isn't too bad. Nothing spectacular either, though.

I'm not a huge hop-head but I enjoy a decent IPA now and then. This is one of the best I've had in quite some time. Appearance wise it was an Amber color. Very smooth, perfect temp and not a bad aftertaste. Even my wife who is not an IPA fan ended up getting one of her own. I'll definitely be having this one again

on tap at the brewpub in Chicago. pours a rich golden amber with a white head and good retention with solid lacings. aroma is rich and of fresh hops with a coniferous quality and a rich profile. a malty base of pale and subtle citrusy hops rounds out the profile. taste is smooth and hoppy with a mellow profile of sweet malt citrusy hops with a subtle spicyness. mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a smooth and lightly dry finish of residual oily hops. nicely crafted on the palate. drinkability is good. a solid IPA with great hop quality that avoids an overly dry or bitter profile.
