Notes/Commercial Description:
Loads of Crystal and Sterling hops lead the way in producing huge citrus and pine aromatics. Hoppiness is supported with a clean, slightly biscuity malt backbone.

All I can say is huge diacetyl bomb.
I don't know why some of these breweries rush their beers out and not taste them during the process.

Extremely off putting beer.
I've tasted diacetyl in pipeworks a few times but this diacetyl was the most over powering by far

I have heard a ton of buzz about these new comers to the over crowded Chicago craft beer scene. A friend of mine grabbed a growler and headed to my hotel room with a few IPA glasses. The pour was an awesome pale color with tons of aromatic character! Lacing and carbonation were spot on! Then the flavor hit! WOW!!!! This beer holds its own to other top shelf APA's or American IPA's from high quality breweries in the region. Floral. Citurs. Pine flavors. Anti-Hero, Zombie Dust, Daisy Cutter... you have a new kid on the block so beware!!!
