1747th Review on BA
Draft to Pint
@Bavarian Lodge, Lisle, IL
App- When this was put on the bar it did look like a bit of a mix of IPA colors. A bit orange with yellows and haziness mixed in. The center was a bit deeper and richer than the rest was. The edges are a bit clearer. The head was a nice wite 2 finger with sticky cling for days.
Smell- When I got this one it was a bit of a mix of aromatics. A bit of a cat pee hops with a bit of pine and then thrown in is the deep tropical flavors and aromatics that bring a bit of dry grass as well.
Taste- I enjoyed this beer. It was a classic american IPA with decent flavors. It was a bit dry with some good spicy hops and a little bit of a balanced tropical fruit flavor behind it. It wasnt overly bitter but did have some good grainular flavors behind it.
Mouth- A semi medium body with a bit of thiness behind it and then moves into a semi bubbly medium carbonation. A bit of the cat pee flavor remains and has a nice dry flavor as well. A little bit like a pine tree intermixed with grapefruit.
Drink- I have been waiting to try some Solemn Oath beers and this was very good. I will have to have some more of it soon.

Appearance: Bright red with tan lacing and foam. I definitely did not expect a Red IPA.
Smell: Strong pine and grapefruit.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Grapefruit with a cookie backing. Very yeasty as well, which gives it an excellent mouthfeel.
Overall Drinkability: An IPA that Erik the Red would be proud of.

Served in a Founders All Day IPA shaker pint glass at the Map Room.
My first stop on this particular Chicago jaunt, my first visit to the Map Room (hell yes, indeed!), and my second Solemn Oath brew. Let's dance. This stuff pours a hazy amber-blonde topped by a finger of lightly off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light lemon rind, light coriander, toffee, and a very light sprinkling of leek fragments. The taste brings in more of the same, with more lemon rind, a touch of orange peel, and a light sensation of pine. Not bad at all. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, lightly sticky finish. Overall, a very nice IPA, one that doesn't overdo it on the hops in any direction, doesn't "over-balance", and keeps things simple and tasty. Right on, brother.

My wife and i stopped by here after dinner, it was packed and standing room only in the tiny place, so we got a growler and headed home to watch a movie. I wish i had the chance and spot to stay, as they had some intriguing wheat beers with 3 different coffee regions and the base beer available in a 4 glass flight, i need to go back for that. Anyway, the beer at hand, Kidnapped by Vikings.
Visually it looks great, tons of lacing and a large dense, healthy head. Color is a bit hazy sunburst orange color.
The aroma is mostly straight forward citrus in a centennial type of way. i have no idea what they actually brewed this with, but Centennial seems like a good possibility.
A dark orange flavor is leading the way here, the pine is lighter, a sweetness on the back end. Add a guess of cascade to my prior assumption.
The mouthfeel is medium full and slightly sticky for the style.
This one is certainly well made, and an above average IPA in the big C catagory. I had/have no knowledge of what hops were used in this one at the time of purchase, and while i personally prefer the Citra, Nelson, and other hops in those areas, this one is quite well done. remove a bit of the balance/back end sweetness and and sticky body, and this one would be really good and in the 4-4.5 range, but it is still quite above par.
