look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
On tap at Tap House Grill - Des Plaines, IL
A - hazy amber-copper body, frothy off-white head fades quickly to a foam
S - huge Citra hop nose of mango, pineapple, mandarin, and passion fruit coupled with grapefruit and caramel
T - Fruity and tropical with mandarin, pineapple, mango, Juicy Fruit gum, grapefruit, caramely, bready, toasted grain, spicy - nice complexity
M - fuller body, creamy, smooth, spicy, tingly, semi-dry finish with moderate bitterness, but nice balance
O - nice surprise here! Had not heard of this brewery before but decided to take a chance on a new beer. But the problem is that this tastes like an American IPA, not an English IPA. Still nice flavors, but I disagree with the style label. It does have a faint hop earthiness reminiscent of the style but with the bold American hops I'd find it hard to call it an English IPA. Still very glad to taste it!

Poured from a can into an Imperial Pint.
This beer came highly recommended by Geno, of Geno's Fine Wine and Spirits in Elgin, IL (dont let the name, or the appearance fool you, this is a serious craft beer store) I managed to pick up a six pack for the fourth of July weekend to give Temperance a shot.
A: Pours a hazy copper with golden accents. Lets plenty of light through, but is hazy enough to prevent a 'look through'. One finger of pillowy, creamy, off white head with zero pitting. Slowly fades to a thin cap leaving soft lacing along the way.
S: Mild, soft hops, piney, citrus peel, ruby grapefruit, with a mellow malt underlay. Aromas mesh very well with one another.
T: Once again, very mild and smooth. Piney hops that don't wreck your palate, but present enough to let you know you are drinking a IPA. Closely followed by sweet bready malt. Nothing to crazy here, just a very balanced, refreshing taste.
M: Easy carbonation, medium body... very APA like, leaves a nice thin coating over the tongue. Finishes with a lingering sweet and dry sensation.
O: Quite pleasantly surprised. This is a very good beer, one which I would most certainly drink again. Nothing extraordinary, but a very flavorful, balanced, enjoyable beer. Kudos.
