The can design looks like it could contain lump crab , but that aside, I was really hoping this would be another in-your-face IPA from SOB. Turns out this is a very mild IPA. Very little bitterness and not much memorable about this beer. It was canned about 5 weeks ago, not sure if that made a difference. Probably a great beer for the IPA newbie, but not for me. A little disappointed in SOB this time.

At TFF movie. Lots of resin, pine hops, some citrus hops. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall a decent IPA. Not crazy hoppy but drinkable and no bitterness. Worth checking out.

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

Beer in a can has been my favorite to drink and this one is very refreshing as most from this local Naperville brewery! Highly recommended!

Dark gold color and crystal clear. Modest head which leaves only a few spots for lace.

Starts with hop pellet aroma. A bit of cream in the background.

There's a mild blackberry flavor with just a touch of sweetness. The hop touch brings on some earthiness. Full bodied with a light effervescence. Pine needle bitterness in the aftertaste.
