Poued from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Pours a clear amber, with a fluffy head, about an inch high.

Smell is earthy and floral, with some fruity citrus over the top.

The taste follows the nose, and adds a little bit of sweetness and a distinct grapefruit flavor. Really crisp and refreshing.

Medium bodied, carbonation is spot on.

Really nice, unpretentious IPA that would probably my go to if I lived in the Chicago area. I like the crispness and citrus.

Having this on-tap. Served to me in a plastic pint glass/cup, this beer draws a mainly clear, medium copper amber color with a creamy white head that's about an inch thick when first served to me that settles to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with a big cluster swirl of foam on the beer's surface and nice lacing. Aromas of some toasted, caramel malt sweetness that gives way to earthy, piney, herbal hops with a bit of citrus. The taste is pretty much the same, with a nice, toasted, caramel malt sweetness upfront followed by an earthy, piney, slightly herbal, andslightly citrusy hop flavor that has a decent amount of bitterness. Good balance of flavors, although the hops do dominate a bit here, which is to be expected of course, but it's certainly on the milder end of bitterness as far as American IPAs go. Has a fairly crisp, yet also quite smooth and somewhat frothy, medium to full bodied moutjdeelmwitj moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish. A solid beer here.

Pours a clear golden to amber color. Nose is of citrus, lemons and oranges, malt and grasses. Taste of light citrus. Primarily lemon. Decent malt presence, a bit of a sticky dough quality. Also grass and light pine. Medium body, light creaminess that disappears quickly and shifts to a dry crisp finish.

From the league of heroes box set, can dated 2/3. Poured into a snifter. Dark bronze, very little in the way of lacing and carb. Nose is a real mild hop sent, slightly citrusy. Taste is a clean crisp mild hop, slight bitterness on a citrus background. Well balanced and tasty, an excellent flagship beer for a great local brewery.
