2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. I really appreciate what the brewers are trying to accomplish here, but for me, the pure taste of hop oil is not the way to go. If this is what you want, go out to a homebrew store and buy some hop oil and dump a few drops into your favorite brew. Very one sided beer, lacking complexity.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Lucky Owl. Pours hazy dark orange with frothy off white head. Some lacing. Nose is faint, some earthy hops and not much else. Citrus, grain, some green notes and some lingering bitterness. Not terribly good at this point as I hope it's better fresh

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a thin ivory head. Aromas of citrus and piney resin; not overly complex. Taste is solid, tropical fruit and the slight bitterness of the hops. A year ago I would've thought this was amazing; today it's kinda "meh".

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Chris R. Shared with Amy S. Date on bottle reads 8-20-15. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Decent spread of lace. Medium-plus body, smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Mildly slick, then dry finish. Some earthy hops, bready sweet malt, touch of citrus. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. An alright pale ale. Kind of like the ghost of a somewhat older IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a soapy off-white head that leaves sleeves of lacing on the glass. Aroma is potent sweet orange citrus hops. Mild bodied and somewhat dry with a bitter piney finish. Bitterness lingers, but is not overwhelming and encourages another sip. Nicely carbonated.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazed orange color with a creamy, off white head. Aroma has a very pronounced cascade hops nose - light citric acidity, strong orange fruit, light sweetness from the caramel malt. Flavor starts off with a good does of smooth cascade hoppiness but transitions into a light maris otter/munich toasted malt kick to go along with the malt sweetness. Body is modest with a very low carbonation rate. Overall an okay brew but really not much different from other cascade hopped brews. Not bad, not unique but done up well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Really cloudy light brown/orange pour, short dense white head and lots of lacing. Lively carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, clean finish. Very pricey, resinous aroma. Flavor of strong nutty and Carmel malts, pine and a bit of tropical hops. Good nutty IPA but nothing to write home about.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is initially a dry pine with secondary notes of bread and is followed by the addition of juicy grapefruit and orange. It pours clear with an amber hue and a white soap head that has ok retention and moderate lace. The taste is a medium bitter front supported by a medium sweet tail. The oily beer is fuzzy with a medium body containing notes of pine, grapefruit, and bread crust. The finish is crisp pine with a bready character that then turns sweet tangerine. It’s clean with an aftertaste that has a bit of a cloying waxiness, but mostly pine notes.
