Poured into a Great Lakes glass

A) thick, cloudy, clover honey color, two finger head

S) Mango, biscuit, toasted bread, honey, grapefruit.

T) Honey, mango, citrus fruits, candy, malt

M) Thick medium carbonation

O) a very sweet DIPA, a person that enjoys low-bitter hop characters will enjoy this, others may find the honey too strong.

Thanks to Joe for this one!

Pours a coppery saturated dark orange, plenty of sturdy parchment colored foam on the surface. Sticky collar of lace, random arcs and patchy partial halos form and etch themselves into the glass.

Heady, pungent tropical aromas, papaya in spades. Complex and unique hop aromas, dank and long lasting.

Taste is similarly tropical, papaya and bitter orange peel, resiny and bitter. Full body, malty backbone lends some supporting honeyed sweetness and secondary bready notes. Lingering bitter citrus peel in the aftertaste. Overall really nice, one of Spiteful's most interesting DIPA's.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: pours with about two fingers of head. Sticky layers left behind with each drink. Color is light copper.

Smell: bright sweet malts and sugary full bodied honey notes greet the drinker. Heavier saturated citrus shows up on the body. Enticing yet light tropical fruits really pull the drinker in.

Taste: freshly baked sweet rolls drizzled with honey and sugar greet the palate. The honey builds and adds earthy notes. Then like a strike of lightning, bright tropical fruits light up the palate. Mangos, kiwi, tangerine, and papaya blast on the scene. The finish is a cornucopia of the most wonderful accents found in the beer, with sweet malts and full bodied fruits.

Mouthfeel: carbonation is done to near perfection, just a touch bright. Sweet malts and huge fruits and honey dance on the palate long after drinking.

Overall: I don't think there is a better IPA being made in Chicago. Honey notes are done perfectly and compliment the malt and hop tones perfectly. Spiteful contiue to make outstanding beer across the board.
