Served in a Founders All Day IPA shaker pint glass at the Map Room.

My first stop on this particular Chicago jaunt, my first visit to the Map Room (hell yes, indeed!), and my second Solemn Oath brew. Let's dance. This stuff pours a hazy amber-blonde topped by a finger of lightly off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light lemon rind, light coriander, toffee, and a very light sprinkling of leek fragments. The taste brings in more of the same, with more lemon rind, a touch of orange peel, and a light sensation of pine. Not bad at all. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, lightly sticky finish. Overall, a very nice IPA, one that doesn't overdo it on the hops in any direction, doesn't "over-balance", and keeps things simple and tasty. Right on, brother.

22oz bottle, no apparent freshness date other than "SOB 2014", 6.0% also listed on label
L - hazed amber-orange colored ale topped with a creamy ivory head, good retention and lacing
S - juicy, fruity, citric, orange, grapefruit, lemon, grass, caramel; very fresh aroma
T - grapefruit rind, pine, orange, caramel malt, herbal, and tea-like
F - thin-to-medium body, sharp, bitter, semi-dry finish
O - good American IPA from a local brewery just a couple of miles from my house. It's nice to finally see them bottling some of their beer. At its price point ($6.99), which is unfortunately pretty fair these days, I don't think I'd buy this again seeing as there are many less expensive, better options available. Still glad to try one.
