Thnx chidave!

So......
A: murky golden brown. Nice average lacing
S: I'm getting a great orange-peach scent. It's nice. Could it be the yeast?
T: yup, it's gotta be the yeast. Booze is definitely there. I'm getting so much yeast outta this it's border line Belgian (kidding)
M: all things aside, what stays is good..and this flavor stays! Light-medium coating stays over every bit of my mouth.
O: I think my honkeybucket home brew is on par with this.

Rust orange in appearance and absolutely stunningly bright orange in direct sunlight, nothing more inviting in an IPA for me.

An abundance of citrus punishes the nostrils at first whiff, though not entirely brewed with Citra hops, they definitely highlight this hop spectacularly.

My oh my! Instantly floored by this delightful IPA. Citrus, hops, bitter, perfectly balanced. The high ABV ain't bad either!

Mouthfeel is bitter with hop deliciousness and well carbonated all balanced perfectly.

Overall, this is absolutely everything I look for in an IPA, hands down the best Illinois born IIPA!

Appearance: deep orange color. A half finger of a white head that leaves behinds decent lacing behind. Pretty hazy and almost opaque.

Smell: toasty malts, and juicy and slightly resiny citra hops.

Taste: opens with slightly sweet and toasty malts. Juicy and citrus hops. Fairly bitter for citra.

Mouthfeel: good medium body. Good bitterness.

Overall: solid dipa offering. Not the greatest thing out there but worth a try
