COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blended IPA and cream ale.

Your sense of smell and taste are greeted with an effervescent bouquet of citrus and floral notes of a West Coast style IPA. As this delicious Nectar of the Gods dances onward, the delightful hoppy flavor meets the smooth and sweet creaminess of a Cream Ale. The finish is a marvelously well balanced flavor of citrusy hops and light, airy smoothness. Alas, a well-balanced, highly drinkable, hop forward ale.

poured in a mug, a clear gold with a smallish white head. aroma is hay and skunk. taste is biting. long creeping bitter finish but not in a good way. not real good. Maybe I got a bad bottle.

Strange mildy sweet IPA character, but it has an offputting aroma and a mouthfeel more cream than ale. Tried courtesy of Brandon in 2014.

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour. Smells of hops. Tastes like a subdued ipa with a smooth mouthfeel. Interesting beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly orange pour with a hint of cloudiness. Citrus, pepper, and biscuits. Orange peels, pepper, and hops on the palate. Finish is bitter of hops and orange peel. it tries, it really tries to be good. It just doesn’t pull it off. Bottle.

Ughsmash (7159) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up orange and peppery notes over biscuity malt. The flavor found tangy black pepper and citrus upfront, with pale and bready malts behind.. long, spicy finish. Light-medium bodied and a touch sharp at times.. for the most part enjoyable.

BVery (6626) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle. Very slightly hazy gold pour with a small soapy white head. Strange beer. Cream ale elements, slightly sweet, with some hop bite over the top. Hmmm - not really my thing.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Riley’s World of Wines in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of Ivory soap, some floral hops and a touch of corn. Taste is light bodied, some dry hop bitterness with flavors of grassy hops, light corn and golden grain malt. Finish is semi-dry, some fingerprint grassy hop aftertaste and dry hop bitterness. Closer to a sessional IPA than a regular IPA.

Poured from 12oz bottle, kinda annoyed they don’t have these in a mix six and I had to buy a full sixer of this stuff, pours a clear dark gold with a thick bubbly white head, aroma is more sweet than anything, slight fruit, and I mean slight, flavor has a sweet front end with just a touch of hops in the finish, grain is through out, honestly, this is like spotted cow with a little extra hops thrown in, why, just why.

Pretty good mix of the IPA and cream ale. Not like many I’ve ever drank before. Would recommend to IPA or ale drinkers.
