3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, Binny’s singles rack. Deceptively pale lager color like any old Schlitz. Thin layer of foam clinging to side of the glass. Smell is an unusual mix of the newer hop varietals, some pine and kumquat over a layer of basic bitter nose. Taste is another upside-yo-head smack of hoppiness, with tropical fruit and pine tar filling in without the ale background needed to hold it in check. Light lager body means I am slurping it down much faster than I normally should. A kudo or two to the Bäderbrau guys for hitting one at the beer geeks and the Point guys for making it differently.

Fruity and citrus nose with some soft pils malt like white bread. Some sulfury weird yeast notes as it warms. Taste is initially citrus forward then a weird peppery thing comes in. Probably would be great if it were an ale.

Tap at Sheffields in Chicago. Gold with white head. Clean grain and mild hop aroma. Interesting balance of hops and light grain. Like a lager with more flavor. Drinkable and good if you want a lager type beer but don’t want crap.

Orange cloudy pour at barcocina with white head. Strong fruity apricot aroma. Taste was dank basement and a little unpleasant on first. Got used to it and was better later. Apricot and peach with nice hops. Overall it disappointed me

12oz bottle. Filtered yellow-orange body. Foamy white head. There is a hint of cheap graininess that seems to be in every Stevens Point beer, but other than that this is pretty solid. Bold hop tones, clean sublime malt backdrop. Pretty much what I want out of an IPL. Exceeded my expectations.

Aroma is dank hops, mild pine and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is fruit, tropical fruit, mild pine needles, malts and a dryish/earthy finish.

Draft at Miller’s Pub. Aroma is fresh grass and stonefruits. High, tingly carbonation. Very herbal and grassy, with mint, sage, and pine flavors layered over a base of sweet pils malts and pilsner-ish lemony flavors. Crisp, clean, dry finish. Quite nice.
