Classic iPa. Great balance hoppy yet not overly bitter. This is going to become one of my go to beers.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into a pub style glass

A - The body pours a warm gold. The head is fizzy and supported by a cascading carbonation bubbles. Good lacing.

S - Orange, grapefruit, flowers, and slight melon fruitiness.

T - At first, a bit of honey sweetness in the tip of the tongue. Then, a burst of citrus orange and mild tropical fruit flavor as the hops make their presence known. The hops change over the tasting to more of a grapefruit note. The finish is a good balance of dry, sweet, citrus, and bitter.

M - A delightful fizz from the carbonation and a medium, slightly creamy body.

O - A surprisingly great IPA that straddles the border of a DIPA. It's not the most outrageous or memorable hoppy beer, but the balance is outstanding.

Batch 50. 22oz bottle served pin an imperial pint glass. Beer pours orange amber in color and slightly hazy. Massive pillowy white head on top emits a comparably epic alpha hop aroma. Very piney. Flavor doesn't disappoint, providing a crucial load of C-hops. Definitely out of balance on the palate but still finishes dry and neutral. I think this pushes itself over the line into Imperial IPA territory. That said, well done, Chicago.
