Damn, I love this beer. The pour is a clear amber with a nice, sticky head and a good bit of foam.
The smell is a knockout. Lots of juicy Simcoe hops with a lush, sweet malt backbone. A nice floral note meets with some rich caramel and I want to order another one. Smooth and a low carbonation level, yet it still produces a rich, dense taste. This is all backed up by the lush citrus notes and make this one exceptionally drinkable beer. (439 characters)

I missed the initial Mug Club tapping but got it a day later.

The beer is a very clear medium amber / dark copper color with a decent-sized off-white head. Belgian lace is left along the glass.

The aroma is fantastic. It is filled with a strong aroma of pine, grass, oranges, and tangerines.

The flavors consist of biscuits and a touch of toffee in the very beginning, which is quickly overpowered by a strong flavor of orange and pine. A strong bitter bite follows that does not linger long.

The mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. The finish is fairly dry.

For an IPA lover, the drinkability of this beer is fantastic! This is one special IPA!!! Welcome to Flossmoor Bryan!!! (703 characters)
