Thanks to my sister for making the trip to Munster and snagging me a couple o' dees.
bomber into Belgian tumbler
A - Lovely warm reddish amber. Some visible carbonation rising through a slight haze. Custard/white creamy like cappuccino head, one and one half fingers dissipates to a millimeter film over a minute or so. Left a considerable amount of lacing.
S - My first thought was just, "This smells like a FFF beer." I guess something in the hop character they go for, or maybe the house yeast. Always has light citrus tinge and a bit of sweetness that comes through enticingly well. This is the case here, as well as some grassiness lightly sprinkled with cat piss.
T- Not as hop forward as I thought, although i accidentally smoked a spliff about 15 minutes ago. Whoops. Mostly some pine, which sticks and lingers, but a nice fruitiness too. Bitterness dominates towards the end, but my palate is neither wrecked, ruined, younger, etc. Real nice juicy grape fruit as it hits the tongue. Sadly not wildly malty, little bit of caramel gets to the tip of the tongue, but this is definitely one for the hop heads.
M- Pretty light bodied, medium carbonation. Not super sticky, but still a bit of dryness.
O - Two of my favorite breweries, so that's fun. I kinda wish they had gone for something a little bolder together, but then again, with things like Navaja, Alpha King, Daisy Cutter, the Dust, etc. this is comfortable territory for both. Is that a good thing? It's certainly drinking well. Reasonable at $8 bucks a bomber for novelty/limited availability, but don't hate yourself if you miss this one.

Acquired via trade
A gorgeous IPA. Very sticky with an incredibly persistent head. Asides from that, this is an above average IPA, and very good by Midwest standards. A nice collection of bitterness along with some dank, citrus, and pine notes. Drinkable, and impressive for the Midwest. That being said, if this was brewed in San Diego, people would overlook this as just another average IPA. The inflated scores on this beer are some of the most ridiculous I've ever seen. Why hype an IPA? Just drink it, fools.

On-tap at Half Acre taproom. Served in a pint.
A- pours a hazy dark copper with a 2 finger off white head. Walls of thin lacing cascade on the glass.
S- caramel, toffee, light toast, orange and grapefruit, some spice and pine.
T- toffee, toasted malts, spices rye? Some grapefruit and citrus with bitter pine punch.
M- medium body and carbonation. Slick and a little dry.
O- good IPA, lots of spice, citrus and pine.

Had this on-tap at Churchkey during the Craft Beer Conference 2013.
A: Poured a pretty, glowing, red-orange color with a soft chill haze and slight pillowy white ring around the brew.
S: Tropical fruit paradise city! Mango skin, papaya, pineapple, and good bit of hop sizzle thrown in as well. Malt backbone? We don't need no stinking malt backbone!
T: Just like the nose only more intense. The finish was quite harsh, but in the same sort of way that Daisy Cutter is. Lots of raw, plant-like, almost peppery spice on the end. Excellent flavor though.
M: More about that bitter finish. I happen to think Daisy Cutter is one of the most unique PAs on the market because of this and I could easily pick it out in a line-up. This bitter finish gave it character to my mind and I thought it was fun to drink.
O: A unique, tropical experience. This was neither an East Coast or West Coast IPA. Is there such thing as a Florida one?
