3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Tipsy Cow madison, wi. Deep amber color. Aroma of grass hops and toffee upfront with some pine. Taste is grassy, piney, and lightly fruity hops with stronger toffee and caramel malts than your typical imperial ipa. The use of the German hops definitely sets this apart from other American iipas along with the larger malt presence. Medium body, well balanced, alcohol sneaks up on you.

I like ipa- this isn't my favorite though. I'd drink it if someone gave it to me, but probably wouldn't pay for it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a sweet and syrupy toffee and caramel blend with secondary pine notes and a mild, sweet grapefruit underneath. It pours a deep, rich, and oily amber hue with a slightly off-white dense foam head that leaves a moderate retention and okay lace. The taste is a medium high bitter and medium supporting sweet. The texture is smooth with creamy foam and a medium full body. The profile on the palate is grainy with a strong roasted note that blends nicely with toffee and sweet grapefruit. The finish is crisp with clean pine and a mellow burnt character that quickly fades and turns to mild grapefruit membrane. The aftertaste is chalky with resin and pine dryness and a light bitter citrus that’s clean, lightly astringent, and fresh.
