Illinois

4.29/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: An awesome ruby-orange hue, almost pink like some moscato wines where the glass thins out. Fairly cloudy. Somewhat difficult to produce a thick head, but what is formed is persistent, strong lacing.

S: Powerful pine volatiles, hints of tart fruits- some undertones even approach vinegar; hostile to the nose, but somehow appetizing- maybe from the alcohol? It definitely works, very well balanced.

T: Mega hoppy. Pine, overripe grapefruit, even backgrounds of biscuit. Crisp, with a bitterness that sits in the corners of my mouth for a long time.

M: Goes down smoothly, some carbonation to shake things up but doesn't leave you feeling bloated. Crisp, yet I can feel some (welcome) residue on my tongue for a while.

O: While I admit I don't have a palate for hops, this one offers some unique flavor combinations that are very enjoyable. I could pick up on both the pine and fruit families that hops offer, and the mouthfeel was as intriguing as some beer's full flavor profiles are. One of the top offerings in quality for an IPA/DIPA, if not the best value.
Also, I love the labeling! Great presentation, for what it's worth.

4.18/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A- Very pale gold with thin-thin white head
S- Very hop forward but not as potent as I would like. I get a mix of citrus and piney hops
T- Hoppiness I wanted from the smell comes through on the pallet. Sweet and citrusy with a nice yeasty/bready end
M- Smooth but sticky on the backside

O- Enjoyable IPA. Well balanced but still hop forward.
