750ml bottle, batch 6. Served in a stemmed glass. Pours a murky darker yellow body, with layering sediment. One finger white head, lots of lacing. Smell is rich freshly squeezed grapefruit juice but without the tartness, a little zest, minimal caramel malt, mild tapioca. Solid nose. Flavour is certainly more interesting; grapefruit juice, slight chalky malt sweetness, citrus zest, more bitterness than expected- more of a zesty, grapefruit skin bitterness. As expected from a double dry hopped citra beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly dry and crisp, good carbonation otherwise with a moderately bitter grapefruit zest finish, more than expected for a beer in the tradition of Tree House/Trillium. Overall- a nice take on the style, really nice grapefruit flavour, certainly uglier than even the archetypes of the style but the rest of it is there. I think it's a little sweeter than you'd expect, though.

Ugly as shit beer, one of the worst. Nose was fantastic with a beautiful floral nose. The taste is a strong creamy hop with a strong good hop bite. Feel is normal for this style IPA. Overall a very good yet ugly beer.

A - Pours a very murky orange with a small head that goes away quickly.
S - The aroma is orange grapefruit.
T - The flavor is grapefruit, maybe rounded off a bit with orange, and the bitterness seems straight from grapefruit pith.
M - Average carbonation and mouth feel.
O - Very balanced, my favorite Mikephone beer so far.

A 750ml bottle with no visible date that I purchased at Binny's in Lincoln Park on 09/09/17. Pouring the contents into a twelve ounce tulip glass.

Look- Pours a hazy pale yellow leaving a small finger of creamy lacing in it's wake. It quickly settles revealing a little lacing.

Smell- Passionfruit, mango, pineapple and orange zest. A touch of malt creeps out from the back.

Taste- Grapefruit, passionfruit, orange zest, pineapple, floral notes and a little peppery spice in the finish.

Feel- Slick and pillowy up front yielding to a slightly acidic and dry finish.

Overall- A very worthy NE DIPA that has a palate pleasing mix of citrus and floral notes. Big flavor with a fairly smooth and respectable 8.0% abv. makes this one to try for fans of the style.

The appearance of this beer is that of totally impenetrable orange juice topped with a dense, uniform foamy beige head.

Smell is sweet dank apple leaf, transitioning on the tongue to a tangy bite of peach, grapefruit, bitter Sweet Tarts, and a touch of rug.

Complex to say the least, with a pillowy mouthfeel.
