Received a couple of Cans in a recent trade and was excited to give it a try.

A: Pours a light copper color with a 3 inch billowy head that I had be careful did not overflow the tulip glass I was drinking it out of, solid lacing throughout. 4.00

S: Big fruit aromas, perhaps the strongest tangerine, grapefruit, general fruitiness I have ever smelled in any beer. A slight resin aroma at the very end. 5.00

T: Follows the smell, juicy and fruity in the beginning with a nice hop bitterness to round things out, highly drinkable. 4.25

M: Just right, fills the mouth without being cloying or thin, just a bit sweet, goes down nice and smooth. 4.50

O: Extremely impressed and surprised at how good this was, really wish I could get this on a regular basis. 4.50

Wow, this was surprising. Like, Raul's Boo being nice to him, "surprising." Raul got this bad boi as an extra, and is Raul sure glad he did! Just straight up solid like pulling a jenga piece and not having the tower fall.

Mmmmm, Raul like it. Raul like it like In N Out after midnight nice n good.

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.
