On tap at the Clark Street Ale House in Chicago
Appearance: Arrives with a hazy amber color and a nice head that webs the pint glass with a complex design
Smell: Bitter citrus, almost kumquat, plays off against the caramel malt
Taste: Balanced, up front, with the bitter grapefruit flavors tantalizing the taste buds against the backdrop of sweet caramel; plenty of hoppy bitterness springs forward, after the swallow, and it also has a floral character peeking through the bitter flavors
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Drinkability: From a brewery with which I was unfamiliar, a very nice IPA with a few distinguishing characteristics
Thanks, joshuaseresse, for the chance to re-visit in the bottle
Serving type: on-tap

Pours copper with a creamy head that leaves some lacing.
The smell is of citric fruits - especially grapefruit - with herbal notes. Robust hop aroma.
The taste is of citric fruits and herbal notes, balanced by a touch of caramel. It has a bitter, dry finish. Hops linger through aftertaste.
It has a chewy, smooth body.
This is a hop delight! Just enough malt to give it a backbone, the hops truly shine here! A very well-made American IPA!

The paler side of orange, this beer is translucent but not transparent, with some chill haze and maybe even some particulate hop matter floating around. There is a soft, billowy, white cloud of foam that recedes, lacing the glass and ringing the beer surface,
American hops, all the way, in the nose. Pine and Citrus.
Taste: If you like chinook, this is going to register as a good balanced beer. If you find chinook a bit strong, maybe even obnoxious, this beer will not change your opinion.
