An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. “Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.” This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

Enjoyed on tap at Chicago Union train station.

Pours a crystal clear honey colored liquid with a decent off-white head.

Pleasant sprucey aroma.

Flavor is fantastic. Complex and nuanced. Lots of floral hops. I'm picking up notes of pine, juniper, and pineapple. Some nice copper notes.

Nice medium mouthfeel with velvety just-right carbonation.

Best IPA I have had in some time.

On tap at Elephant & Castle on a freezing cold evening in the Loop

A: gold with some tints of reddish and amber, 1 finger off-white head
S: an intoxicating mixture of sweet tropical and orchard fruits, dank earthy resiny pine notes, and some pale malt breadiness.
T: follows the nose, and comes in layers. This has got a lot going on, and I like all of it.
M: lingering bitterness with a little bite, medium carbonation, a little on the thick side, slick but ends dry

Overall: I enjoy this one a lot, even though I sometimes wonder whether it has too much going on. Delicious.

Poured into a Dogfish Head branded IPA glass

A - Pours a slightly honey-tinged gold. Forms a nice finger and a half of slightly off-white, creamy head that has decent retention. Spotty lacing left on walls of the glass.
S - Sweet, bright, vibrant and tropical. Lots of peach and mango, sweet hops and perhaps a light note of lemon in the back. The aroma is definitely sweet and tropical and less savory.
T - Balance is the theme here, and it is done so perfectly. Upfront there is sweet peach and mango, this is followed by savory grapefruit that finally develops into hop bitterness. The bitterness at the end of the flavor development rounds off the initial upfront sweetness perfectly yet does not linger once it has done its job, making this beer incredibly crisp, refreshing, thirst-quenching and sessionable.
O - A DAMNED fine session IPA, one of the best I've had. If I could get this stuff, it would replace Modus Hoperandi as my favorite go-to session IPA for sure.

Nailed it. Nice piney, citrusy hop profile. Per usual ton of flavor packed into it.

Picked this one up as an extra on a trade.

Really solid brew here.

Appearance: Solid IPA, not too dark but some reddish hues and golden bronze colors.

Aroma: Dank hoppy dominant beer. Some tropical fruit notes in there as well.

Taste: Dank, bitter, but not too biting, enjoyable overall.

Overall: Solid brew, I would like to try more from this brewery in the future.

Deep gold in color with a minimum of head. An absolutely perfectly balanced IPA, with a sweet maltiness on the back end as a kiss off from the assertive hop profile. An outstanding IPA in a crowded field.
