12oz bottle at State&Lake, coincidentally during Chicago Beer week 2014. Pale orange in color with a nice white head. Fantastic citrus hop aroma. For an IPA this is all about the aromatic hops, with medium bitterness kept well in check by a solid biscuit malt backbone. Super drinkable, almost English-style West coast IPA. Not totally dry, either. Just really juicy and citrusy.

Pours a lightish golden chrome. Nice head/lacing.

Nose has a fruitiness - quite a lot of onion. There are some nice floral and malt notes behind that. Hint of honey. Initially quite muted and almost a sour hint. Over time, more malt comes out. Notes of tomatoes. Cookie dough, cookies and cream ice cream.

Taste is quite malty- bit of fruity hops. More fruitiness develops in the taste as it warms- more balanced delicious apricotty and figgy goodness.

Mouthfeel is watery, thin and dry. Nice, like a spritzer. Surprising bitterness in spite of a thinnish body.

Think it was dated 01/15/14, but the first two digits were nigh on illegible. This date does make sense though- the beer was probably a bit faded- then again it is only 4 months old.

A little underwhelming considering its reputation, I've had other pale ales which hold up better with only 4 months of age, but definitely has its charm.

Enjoyed this on tap at 3Floyds brewpub in Munster, fresh from the source! Poured slightly hazy with a thin white head. The aroma of this IPA is among my absolute favorites. Light citrus scents with slight piney notes made be very excited to take a sip. The sip, however started well, but took an odd turn for me. The lighter citrus flavors on the initial sip turn to an odd late skunky bitterness blended with some malt flavors. I definitely enjoyed the smell more than the taste, but an overall great offering from a great brewery.

Acquired in a trade with oldschool9

From 12 oz bottle to pint glass

A: Copper-tan in color, opaque with chilled haze, a gentle pour creates a tight, 1-inch head that leaves cascading lacing around the glass.

S: Hop-forward bouquet with big citrus-y notes, distinctly grapefruit-y. Honeyed malts and earthy tea notes round the bouquet.

T: The flavors follow the nose, with crisp citrus notes at the front, quickly followed by notes of honey and earthy, floral aspects. Incredibly balanced palate, the finish is short, bittersweet and leaves little residue between sips.

M: Deceptively light on the palate, well carbonated. This is as easy to throw back as they come.

I've had a lot of good hoppy ales lately, especially all of the amazing sessionable IPA's coming out locally. But this is right up there with the best. I've been able to try this at bottle sharing sessions, but it was great to sit down and review my own bottle.
