Draft pint at Big Bricks. Lightly hazed orange, scalloped lacing around the edges, lasting foam. Looks nice.

Candied orange aroma, slightly resinous.
Tastes the same, candied orange slices, herbal resinous greens. Light to medium bodied, pretty easy drinking, finishes dry. Overall this is a solid IPA, better than the other Empirical beers i've had.

On-draught @ the brewpub. $5.50 per pint.

6.70% ABV.

A: Murky and unfiltered. Pulpy pale copper colour.

SM: Citrusy, hitting flavours of orange and onion. Reticent but enticing. Pleasant and inviting. Aromatic intensity is average.

T: Matches the aroma, tending a bit imbalanced with its overdone bitterness. It's fine... nothing wrong with it, nothing amazing about it.

Mf: Smooth, wet, coating, overcarbonated, slightly oily.

O: Drinkable enjoyable mediocrity. I'm not sure why locals are going crazy over it, but it's fair for what it is. I struggle to understand who would pick this over better priced brews from the likes of Lagunitas, Deschutes, or the like, but it's decent.

A lovely burnt orange color with a slight citrus scent. Nothing overpowering. Taste is pretty complex. There's a battle going on between some sweet maltiness and some rather dry hoppy bitterness. Starts with the malt but finishes with the bitter but a slight sweetness lingers.

This beer is brewed down the street from me. Another really strong Chicago IPA, though - for an IPA - a bit of a malt bomb.

On tap at the brewery. Look is medium orange some haze. Smell is light citrus hops. Taste is pleasant bitter up front, more on the piney side. The bitter sticks throughout with a bit of malt balance but not a ton. Feel is solid with the bitter hanging around. Overall well above average for me and maybe even excellent
