I had previously stated that Southern Tier IPA was my favorite as far as India pale ales are concered, but I stand corrected.

I was turned to this particular brewing company late last year at a beer and wine convention here in Illinois, and this beer stood out against many competitors.

Pegasus IPA is the best and smoothest IPA that Iv'e ever had.

If your looking for a smooth India Pale Ale without all of the bitterness and bite, look no further.

This beer is awesome, and is my personal favorite.

A big thumbs up and kudos to Argus Brewers out of Chi-town for making the best IPA Iv'e ever had.

Also, this is one of the rare beers Iv'e had that actually comes very close to tasting as good in a bottle that it does on tap.

The mouthful effect loses a bit vs tap to bottle, but otherwise, the taste is right there.

I had this on tap at the newly opened Ballydoyle's Irish Pub in Bloomingdale, IL. I never saw anything by this brewery before so I was doubly surprised to not only find it on the menu but to then discover it was from a local brewery right here in Chicago.
Served in it's own Pegasus pint glass.

The beer poured a clear reddish brown color with a 1½ finger creamy beige head. Lots of spider webbed lacing clung to the glass as I drank it. Not a bad look.

The smell was all hops - both floral and citrus.

While the hops did dominate the flavor, there was also a significant amount of caramely sweet malt in here to cut down on the grapefruit and piny hop bitterness.

Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied with only moderate carbonation.

High drinkability. No alcohol taste at all. I liked it so much I ordered another one.

I heard that there was a new brewery on the south side of chicago in a hell neighborhood. Found this label at a big chain liquor store and bought a sixer. After a long day at work, I cracked one open and was wildly suprised. The head on this beer was thick and meaty. The aroma was great, and the taste was shockingly great. Definitely a winner.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance
Dark brown, slight lacing, small head
Smell
Strong malt and hop present, toasted scents
Taste
Wonderfully balanced blend of bitterness and bite. Roasted malt flavoring, lingers
Overall
One of my favorite IPAs that even rivals the 60 min IPA for my affection. There’s a strong hop/malt/bitter presence but not overly so, its strong yet drinkable. I’ve never had it in a bottle, only on tap many…many times.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

appearance: ruby red, very clear, finger worth of head to it.

Smell: I smell cascade here, with a hint of citrus and a small caramel backbone.

Taste: I get citrus with caramel sweetness.

I have had this beer a couple of times. seems like they have been improving the beer over the months. alot more hoppy than it started out. i will try it again. I love local brews.
