Had it on draft in a 16 oz pint glass at brew pub. A pretty good IPA fruity not as citrusy as I would have liked but overall a nice drinkable beer I would order again.

Solid session IPA. Decent fruity hops up front not a lot of linger. The finish is nicely spicy carb hop mix, malt balance is a bit muddled but it still works. Decent beer but not with seeking out

2/12/16 Chicago - (Goose Island Brew Pub $5 16 oz draft pour into Nonic glass). Copper pour, light carbonation, very thin white head, minimal lacing. Pleasant citrus, caramel and malt aroma. Nice balanced taste of bitter hops offset by the citrus and caramel. Somewhat firm texture, mild carbonation, pleasant. Overall good beer.

Pours a golden copper hue, one finger white head, fair retention, lots of lacing. Smells of grapefruit, sweet caramel, not much else. Pretty straightforward, not too hoppy, more on the malty side. Flavour is caramel, pale grainy malt sweetness, accentuated by a bit of grapefruit and floral bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-thinner bodied, drinkable, nothing too bitter or overwhelmingly hoppy. Overall, an average IPA that isn't anything too special.
