Served on tap in 16 fl.oz. pint (tulip) glass at Goose Island - Clybourn, (November 24, 2009).
Eyes: Amber gold, a nice head with good lacing.
Nose: A suggestion of malt, but dominated by the grapefruit, oily hop aroma. Quite interesting.
Tongue: The citrus/floral hops appear strong and bitter, quite complex and interesting. No malts to speak of. I must admit that I like the profile here, but I'm a shade underwhelmed. Good, but the brew does not do enough with the bitter hops, I'm left expecting more.
Mouth: Smooth carbonation, crisp bitterness, but it doesn't linger very long.
Libation: Pretty good IPA. With something called "HopDevil" you'd expect a real hop bomb, but it's quite reasonable. It's interesting, easy drinking, a solid IPA.
Serving type: on-tap

From a bottle into a pilsner glass. Bought this bottle yesterday couldn't wait to crack it.
A: deep gold with a burnt orange hue. Not much light penetration. Little head and no lace to speak of. I can see the carbonation rising rapidly in the glass.
S: pungent hops with light citrus aroma on the tail end.
T: bitter and hoppy from start to finish. The citrus smell carries over to lemon notes mixed with those hops.
M: fantastically smooth for such a bitter bomb in flavor. I could drink this all day.
O: I find myself wondering how I waited so long to pick this up and give it a try. If you an IPA/DIPA drinker this is a must try.
