22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Batch No.9

(A)- Pours a hazy amber color. Produced a nice cap of white froth; solid retention.

(S)- A hefty yet dry piney wood sap aroma. Very big wood notes with some subtle lemon citrus.

(T)- Some nice caramel malt in the background combined with a dry woody pine needle middle. Slightly dank with very subtle lemon citrus.

(M)- A good carbonation level meets an interesting balance of caramel/amber malts and a very dry piney wood component.

(O)- An interesting IPA with one of the woodiest hop characters I have seen.

Appearance is a crystal clear almost amber orange color. Thick white head dissipates steadily leaving tons of sticky white lacing.

Smell is simcoe forward to my nose - I get a rather vegetal bitter aroma with the traditional simcoe notes including some cat pee. Hints of citra also come through, but the simcoe reigns here.

Taste seems to be a bit watery overall with the hops coming through strong. The malt is there but seems to be weak giving the impression of a hop forward beer that seems watery in its flavor. Lingering bitter aftertaste with some pine and citrus notes. Dry finish. Its a pretty simple classic flavor profile, but its not a great one.

Feel is on the light side. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall this is an alright IPA - classic in profile but only an average at best execution of the style.

Okay IPA, but had none of the aromas or tastes other than bitter than can really put a beer over the top for me. In a town like Chicago where the competition is really doing something special, this beer just didn't bring it.
