An Illinois style IPA that focuses on malt flavors as much as hop flavors and bitterness. Dry with just enough light German caramel and Munich malts to balance the hop bitterness. Huge hop additions late in the kettle boil and during dry hopping create a bouquet of floral, lemon, citrus and exotic fruit aroma. Not a West Coast over-hopped arms race, not a trendy hop showcase, just an honest beer that reflects what people love about IPA's and the Midwesterners who drink them. Goes great with everything except brussels sprouts, because nothing goes great with brussels sprouts.
