look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - poured into matilda glasses with a one finger head that dissipated quickly. crazy carbonation. golden rosin color.

S - orange with hints of caramel and pine. slightly bready.

T - definitely on the smooth side of things. pretty bitter on the aftertaste which sticks around. roasty feeling. not as in the face hoppy as expected. more malty bitter than hoppy.

M - lips have the sticky touch. slight alcohol bite.

O - nicely balanced. smooth. medium body. great carbonation and refreshing. little heavy for after the lawn beer.

Bottled on 3.5.2013. Four days old.

Unfortunately, this is a relatively old bottle (bottle date 3/5/12), so I'm guessing the hops have subsided a bit. Therefore I am being a bit more lenient on the aroma/taste portions.

A - Body is caramel colored. 1 finger of off-white head. Decent retention. Tons of lacing.

S - Lots of sweet tropical fruit up front. Undertones of pine trees and sweet orange peel. I also detect just the slightest hint of bubblegum.

T - Rich and caramely up front. Very decadent opening to a DIPA. As I mentioned, the hops are bound to have faded a bit, but nonetheless I still get a hefty dose of mango, bitter grapefruit and lemongrass in the middle all the way through to the finish. Good amount of bitterness, but I could almost stand for more. This beer is smooth and balanced all around, no rough edges.

M - Medium body. Good carbonation that doesn't get in the way of the hops. Finish is a bit sticky, but overall quite dry and refreshing.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. No date listed on the bottle, but should be fairly new.

A- Pours a cloudy orange/ amber with a small amount of off-white head that quickly fades. Sticky lacing along the sides of the glass.

S- Lots of citrus in this one; aromas of grapefruit and mango. Otherwise a sort of sweet maltiness is noted as well.

T- Unlike the smell, I get some piney resin in the overall hop bitterness in the taste. Nice maltiness is still there also. No citrus to really speak of in the taste.

M- Lighter side of medium-bodied, nice carbonation, good bitterness.

A nice DIPA from Chicago. Recently started seeing bottles of this at my local shop. A good one to give a try for sure.
