Doing my research ahead of time (I have a meet 'n greet at Begyle later this month), I got this IPA and had it with Indian take-out. It went well enough with that pretty spicy food (IPAs usually do.) In particular, the citrus hops seem to me to go well with tropical cuisines.
But I saved some ale for the post-spicy food test when the palate was clear, and the hops are a bit too clingy. I may have this again, but only with spicy food.

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.

Classic iPa. Great balance hoppy yet not overly bitter. This is going to become one of my go to beers.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into a pub style glass

A - The body pours a warm gold. The head is fizzy and supported by a cascading carbonation bubbles. Good lacing.

S - Orange, grapefruit, flowers, and slight melon fruitiness.

T - At first, a bit of honey sweetness in the tip of the tongue. Then, a burst of citrus orange and mild tropical fruit flavor as the hops make their presence known. The hops change over the tasting to more of a grapefruit note. The finish is a good balance of dry, sweet, citrus, and bitter.

M - A delightful fizz from the carbonation and a medium, slightly creamy body.

O - A surprisingly great IPA that straddles the border of a DIPA. It's not the most outrageous or memorable hoppy beer, but the balance is outstanding.
