Orange marmalade colour with a dense generous off-white head and staggered lacing.

Aromas of Juicyfruit gum, tropical fruits of grapefruit and tangerine. Definite hop, pine and malt.

Balance, balance and balance. Hops, pine, sweet malt and juice. Juz like it smells.

Medium body and chewy. The malt really adds the depth that could be a mistaken as a double. Some stickiness on the lips. Bitterness lingers on the tongue and nasal cavaties.

This IPA is right on target. No characteristic beats the other, but rather meld in harmony. Tremendously tremendous. Truly a leader of a classic in style. Alesmith, if you are reading-would you please come to Chi-town. How come you distribute OVER Chicago to the East coast? Just wondering-I'd buy regularly.
