This one was the tap takeover at Pints in Elmhurst. Served in a standard pint, the beer is a dark copper with a decent sticky tan head.
Aroma of pine and tropical fruits. It was fresh and inviting.
The taste is solid but does not ring-up to the smell. There is citrus and caramel malt and some hits of tropical fruit, but a bit of solvent alcohol permeates the mid and after taste.
Mouth is above average with a bit of thickness and some oiliness.
Not a bad beer, but needs a few tweaks to compete at the high-end.
Serving type: on-tap

In a bottle poured into a pint glass.
S-not much hop aroma there, some slight floral hints and a little bit of citrus on the nose.
T-well-balanced bitterness, not as hoppy as I'd like but still not bad. The malt backbone comes through more than expected, spice and pine resin are the most notable flavors.
M-full and thick, malty creaminess
Not a bad beer by this brewery. It's definitely not one I would yearn over, but nonetheless it is a rather good IPA.
