Received in a trade from Powz87- thanks a ton bud!

Poured from a 12oz can into a 3Floyds teku- also received in the trade with Powz87.

Pretty polished, it shines a gold to garnet with a two finger head of egg shell, and unless im crazy, a small hint of lime green?

Muted nose, i get peach, lemon zest and mowed grass. It's not as prominent as many of the IPAs i've been drinking recently, perhaps that is weighing into this review.

It tastes good! Orange, tangerine lead into a bouquet of floral notes. Not biting or obtrusive, but also not eye-opening fantastic, just very solid.

Feels medium- light-medium, lasting bitter finish. certainly has a drying effect.

Seems like a self-sufficient IPA. I would certainly order this in a bar if I was in Chicago, but probably wouldnt buy a 6er to take home.

12oz can poured into a snifter. I threw out the top to the 6-pack, but I believe it said bottled on 3/27/13.

A- Pours a nice light orange color with a half fingers worth of white colored head that quickly fades to some froth along the side of the glass.

S- The smells gives off piney resin and citrus notes, with some slight grapefruit in there. Not much else.

T- The smell carries over into the taste. A resinous hop presence gives way to some sweet malts.

M- Light bodied, medium carbonation, hoppy with a dry finish, very easy drinking and refreshing.

A nice Chicago IPA.

On tap into pint glass

Pour: Exceptional clarity. Amber hue with minimal head from tap. Lacing is noticed.

Smell: Grapefruit and some citrus first. Some pine and grass with a touch of biscuit. Not a very aromatic nose.

Taste: Citus notes of pineapple, grapefruit and orange are balanced out by a nice pine resin and touch of grass. Excellently balanced by a cracker and caramel malt making this one somewhat sweet.

Mouthfeel: Ligher bodied and highly drinkable. Crisp and refreshing with an appropriate amount of carbonation.

Overall: If you are looking for an easy drinking warm weather beer, look no further. With this one available in cans it makes it even more likely to be a summer beer. Not the best IPA but one I will easily pick up multiple times in the summer months.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
