growler picked up on my recent journey to the city. drank from my samual adams perfect pint glass.

A- this one pours out a dark golden with orange highlights colored body with a finger and a half of bright white head on top. the head lasts an appropriate amount of time and leaves behind small spots of lacing.

S- the nose starts off with strong piny and grapefruit hops with a little bit of leafy hops also. after that i get some sweet caramel malts which tries (and fails) to add some balance.

T- the taste starts out with some caramel malt sweetness before moving into hop county. plenty of bitter resinous pine and grapefruit. some grassy/leafy hops also.

M- an all around solid medium body. nicely bitter. the alcohol seems pretty well hidden.

O- the growler seemed to disappear quickly between my wife and I. this is something id like to try again. i hope it is brewed more than once.

On tap at the Kedzie brewery, served in a footed tulip glass.
Review from written notes.

Bright and saturated sunset orange, crystalline clarity, dense head of creamy white foam. Lasting retention and delicate lacework coating the glass. Some carb trails are visible.

Ripe tangerine and nectarine citrus aroma, a little pungent with dank hops.

Moderate hop bitterness up front, the zest and pith of citrus fruit, malt in the middle lends sweet tea and pastry icing sweetness. Deceptively light feel, a slow sipper due to the abv though. Lingering resiny bitterness that sticks to the teeth a little. Overall a solid citrus forward DIPA from Rev.

RIP JWinship83...

on tap at the pub. A little surprised about the bad previous reviews. Maybe this batch is much better because I thought this was pretty good... Pours a super dark orange, lots of copper in the middle, clear accept for dead middle. The head is light, poor retention and lacing. Great color but bad head, what are you to do?... The aroma is shockingly weak for a dipa, also very sweet. Grapefruit and orange sweet, missing the malt. Sweet simcoe hops, a touch of pine on the finish. Subtle but good. With malt and strong would be awesome... The taste is very bitter compared to the nose, but in a good way. The front shows off the malt, caramel with grapefruits, then medium pine resin throughout. Resin alcohol finish, but missing the overall typical chemical/alcohol/resin of a dipa. Very drinkable but still makes me go meh a little.
I'd have again but not awesome.
