The Hopothesis IPA is the first of many cerebral drinking experiences. Our India Pale Ale is specifically formulated to be balanced, flavorful, and approachable. It can be easily paired with a variety of food and you can drink more than one and still feel quite lucid. Enjoy.

Served in a shaker pint glass at Beer Bistro North.

The final beer (supposedly) of my latest sojourn through the Windy City. It pours a clear auburn-amber topped by a finger-and-a-half of dirty cream-white foam. The nose comprises light caramel, flowers, and a general sense of citrus peel. The taste, unwavering in its decision to follow the nose to the letter, does just that, though a touch of light leek does manage to sneak in there for the sake of it. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, an alright IPA, nothing too spectacular or eye-opening here. Something tells me subsequent batches'll be slightly more exciting, though (just a hunch on my part)...

Saw this beer while studying for a Master of Science and couldn't resist the label. A deep cherrywood finish and floral hops. Big on the hoppy sap taste, but not unbearable. Somewhere between the flavor of a Bell's Two-hearted and Goose Island's IPA. A solid offering, although still now quite laying a glove on nearby 3 Floyd's.
