Slightly cloudy, bright white head, slightly hoppy nose with a typical hoppy flavor. This is a decent IPA, very drinkable. I do like the flavor lingers for a while.

Unknown vintage; drank 11/3/16 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a HUGE, noisy white head; strong, frothy lace.

Caramel, cane sugar & grapefruit notes in the nose; a cloying American barleywine smell. Sigh.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Cane sugar & caramel flavors up front; grapefruit bite on the finish.

Yep, this is a cloying American barleywine, not an IPA at all. My only hope is that this is old, but since this is the beer they chose to "break" into the Chicago market with, why would they do that? Permanent pass.

Pours a clear pale straw yellow with a copious all white head that renders some decent side glass lace.
Aroma: Citrus and floral hops, along with some pine nuts.
Taste: Citrus hops, orange peel and to a lesser degree some bread malts.
Slightly drying with a slightly bitter finish.

Had to try a beer from one of my old hometowns, Memphis. Smell is pretty light for an ipa, and in fact has more of a bready smell to go with tropical fruits than hops. Taste is an average ipa, nothing outside the box or too exciting. Actually that is a good summary for this beer, nothing too exciting but ok

Poured a clear, orange-yellow color with a thick white head. Smells of floral notes, oranges, citrus, and a little bit of pine. Tastes of sweet malt, some citrus notes. The hops are mild enough that the malt almost dominates this. Feel is medium to medium-light. Flavor does linger for a little while afterwards. Fairly run of the mill IPA, solid but not spectacular. Would probably work well with food.
