I love this beer and I drink it on a regular basis on tap at the brewpub and out of the bottle. This makes it very hard for me to give an accurate review... but I must try.
I've seen this beer come out cloudy on some pours and clear on some pours... I've even seen it pour cloudy and then clear up??? I assume it's from where the keg/bottle has been filled from the holding vessel. Regardless of haziness, the beer has a beautiful orange meets graveyard western sky color, nice white head, not too big. I love to look at the clear pour of this beer as it can be as smooth as glass.
Huge citrus and pine scent up front. It's as if Mr. Coniferous and Ms. Tangerine ran into each other and suddenly melted on under the hot Chicago sun (in July/August). Lying underneath them would be high quality 2-row malt that is scooping them up. Next to Hopslam this is one of my favorite smelling beers.
Over and over again this beer collapses my palate with piney and citrusy hops. It never gets old. Love it! Amazingly I never taste the bite of alcohol. Maybe it's just me???
If this beer were a few ABV % less I would be drinking it non-stop.
It's simply and IIPA fan's IIPA.
Serving type: on-tap
