Orange pour from bomber at Lakehouse. White head. Rotten grapefruit and orange peel aroma. Bitter and hoppy rotten fruit taste. Not my type but isn't a bad beer

Bottle pours clear copper with huge ecru head. Nose pine, slight grassy, toffee, hint of oak. Taste moderate bitter up front, then some dank and weedy hop. mid palate some tannin from oak. Lighter on the sweet flavors than the nose would suggest. light bitter finish. The barrel does not overpower, just adds a layer of complexity.

22 ounce bottle from Binny’s. Malty slight sticky with mandarin and oak. Different but the malt flavor takes it down a bit.

A chocolate - flavored IPA? Not a good Idea. 3 Sheeps pretty much failed me with this one.

nuplastikk (4697) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Tap at OF. Dulled brown-copper body. Pretty respectable hoppy bite. Piny, resinous. Steady creamy beige head. Some oily, barky malt tones. A tolerable IPA for 15 years ago. Not so bad, classic pine resin IPA. Sweet crystal malts.

Bomber from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc. Pours a clear coppery-orange with an off-white head. Nice streaks of lace. Aroma has fresh fruit, sweet stone fruits (mangoes, peaches) and citrus. Also some oak-y and some caramel, with alcohol show up later in the glass. Taste is of sweet fruits, grapefruit, some sprucy pine and some resin. With a solid malt backbone and some oaky alcohol presence. Medium bodied and very sticky. Finishes more bitter than sweet on the bitter to sweet scale, with a tangy oak presence. Not typically a fan of barreling IPAs, this one is solid and tasty. 14.3

A really lightly hopped ipa with a slight oak flavor tinge. Not very bitter or citruscy. I really like some of their other beers and this one does not disappoint. Had in a bomber at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 Beautiful burnt orange with off-white head. Nose of catty/dank pine with caramel malt and candy with faint oak. Flavor is fairly oak forward followed by pine/faint grapefruit and a light caramel malt backing. Trailing tanins and hops. Moderately dry. Pretty nice overall, dialing back the oak would even this one out a bit, but still a pretty good offering.

Draft at Craftsman Table & Tap. Pours bright orange, a little hazy. Appetizing meringue-like head. Nose is nectarine, passion fruit, caramel, a little wood. Full mouthfeel, a little mango, sweet citrus. Hint of vanilla. Very nicely done.

Bomber. Poured clear, lighter orange with a short, tight-bubbled white head. The aroma picked up juicy apricot and mango hops plus oak over sweet caramel.. the hops and oak were balanced very well with each other. The flavor found bitter toasted oak and sharp piney hops on the tip of the tongue.. sweet caramel and biscuity malts followed for support.. transitions weren’t great between the smooth middle and bitter edges.. finished sharp and a bit grainy with lots of oak and residual bitterness. Medium-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation.. sharp and unpleasant in several places.. OK overall, but rough around the edges and through the transitions.
