When the waiter name-dropped Solemn Oath's taproom as a place he previously worked, I almost asked him what his commission on pours was, because I wasn't about to have the wool pulled over my dick by some tool in a polo. Humble pie is a bitter dish my friends. Snaggletooth Bandana was incredibly flavorful, with some intense hop magic going on there. Finish was incredibly bitter, yet I didn't care, because the drinking experience opened my eyes to what you can do with IPA's. If that waiter ever becomes a homeless man, he's definitely earned himself an extra nickel.

12 fl oz. can, canned 06/30/16 printed near the bottom lip of the can. My first canned offering from Solemn Oath; acquired the six pack from the local beer store. Appealing can art with a blood red tooth and a bunch of punk rockers. Nothing says punk rock quite like your Naperville, Illinois craft beer *sarcasm*.

Poured into a Big Eddy snifter glass.

A - Pours a brightly hazy golden orange body, with just over a finger of fluffy airy white bubbly head that falls to a ring rather quickly, leaving some minor spotty lacing on the way down. A nice color, and it appears decently carbonated - looks good for the style.

S - Aroma of bright fresh piney hop oils, pine needles / resin, citrus, grapefruit, dankness. Juicy & tropical fruits - mandarin oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, pineapple, mango. Fresh, fruity, floral, & appealing.

T - Taste brings in more of the same: crisp juicy notes of citrus fruits & piney resinous hops. Perfectly balanced sweetened bready malt content keep the hops in check.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, clean, juicy, piney, resinous, bitter, floral. Very light-bodied and easy drinking stuff, especially for the modest 6.50% abv. Very drinkable / "Sessionable" stuff. Glad i got the sixer.

Solemn Oath Snaggle Tooth Bandana -----4/5.

I didn't want to be the guy drinking Naperville, IL beers, but then I started sampling some of what Solemn Oath does. Good stuff. Snaggletooth is smooth for an IPA. Just enough bitterness and a nice citrus/grapefruity aroma. Easy to drink. Good hoppy aftertaste. Solid beer.

Had on tap. Pours clear, gold in color, with 1/3 inch head. Taste is lemon, orange, and pine that gets stronger as the beer warms. Slightly bitter, delicate, and light bodied. This beer does not knock you over the head with hops as much as some other beers. It is a pleasant sipper that has me curious about the brewery.

On-tap at hopleaf

A - Dark hazy orange with a small white rocky head

S - Loads of mango sweetness and light passion fruit dominate a nice and very strong tropical nose

T - Sweet tropical fruit, mango, and pineapple. Pine and grapefruit bitterness comes on the backed to give it a nice balance. There is also a hint of passion fruit near the end. I really enjoyed this one

M - Medium body with a light sweet stickiness and syrupiness to it. Thick hop resin remains on the tongue

O - Really a great tropical IPA with a good hop presence that is also balanced with a slight bitterness. A great IPA keeping up the Chicago tradition.

(Served in a 16 oz. pint glass)

A- This beer pours a hazy deep golden yellow with a thick white head and a lazy carbonation of big bubbles.

S- The nice full green citrus aroma had some nice woody hop notes in the finish.

T- The nice juicy slightly pungent hops burst from the glass with green citrus zest flavor and more ripe citrus finish. There is very little bitterness and a light toasted malt note comes though underneath. The bright hops flavor lingers for a moment after each sip.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a nice fizz that enhances the hop finish.

O- This beer has a nice full hop profile with some good depth and lots of drinkability.

My wife & I met a couple friends at the Solemn Oath tasting room for a Saturday evening prior to heading to dinner. We had never been there before and the entire beer lineup sounded good so it was a bit hard to choose. I wound up trying this one first since I've been on a bit of an IPA kick as of recent.

This beer pours a clear amber hue that shows off moderate carbonation and is topped with a thick, frothy, almost creamy, white head that dissipates nice and slowly to a rocky layer with a neck. 4.25/5 The aroma is somewhat subdued but is definitely dominated by the hops. The aroma features a good dose of tropical fruit and is backed up by a light grainy malt that balances the sharpness a bit. There is a slight buttery note as well. 3.25/5 The flavor profile is, as with the aroma, dominated by the hops, but the malt does make more of a showing here with a bit of buttery caramel up front along with a hint of grain. Mango, papaya, pineapple, and passion fruit come through quite quickly after the malt with a bitterness that is moderate but balanced by the malt. The bitterness does linger lightly on the palate after swallowing. 4/5 This is a medium bodied IPA that is light on carbonation and actually fairly wetting and slick before a slight dryness develops that lingers lightly after swallowing. 4/5 This is a very good IPA that has a healthy dose of tropical hops that all come together very nicely. It is very hop forward, but also well balanced at the same time. Easily a beer to return to for me. 4/5
