COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very well balanced and enjoyable IPA, with a nod to the original heavily hopped English style ale. The result is a spicy and floral hop flavor and aroma balanced with a good malt back bone hinting at fresh biscuit and nuttiness. Brewed using Pale 2 Row, aromatic, and caramel Munich malts. Just the thing for a long Wisconsin weekend.

Not much of an IPA here. It looks okay, golden bodied with a modest white head but loads of lace. The aroma is grainy with a light touch of lemon and zest. That describes the flavor, too, except that thereís a soft lemon rind bitterness. It finishes pretty dry with a quiet bitterness. As an APA, I might have rated it higher.

12oz bottle pours a straw yellow with a nice head and lacing. Aroma is subtle hops and malt. Flavor is mild bitter. Fairly weak IPA.

Scipio (703) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber with a medium off white head. The aroma is malty and more reserved. It is a little bit nutty, bready, and I honestly can say I find little else. The taste is still dominated by malty impressions, although it is expanded. There is bread, lemon, apple, some pine, and very mild grapefruit. A short aftertaste is lemon. Medium in body, thicker in texture, and there is some soft carbonation. This one really doesnít do it for me. Dull.

Ericular (622) - Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a medium golden orange with mediocre head and lacing. Aroma is pale malts and soapy hops. Mild overall. Somewhat sessionable, with a fruity apple malt that gets a little too sticky and heavy as it lingers, especially for the style. Nothing overtly offensive about it. Safe, muted, mass appeal... meh.

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ home. Secret Krampus gift from Andy. Orange pour with a soapy white head. Aromas of stale hops, orange, apple, and grass. Really sugary and jammy. Not a good sign... Taste is extremely astringent and bitter, particularly on the finish. Lots of metal, grass, and chalk. Slight orange, a bunch of sugar up front, peach jam, and aspirin. Scroll past.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Light hoppy favor with a quick finish.

This does better as an APA than an IPA. It is just not quite big or hoppy enough to be called an IPA. This said, it does not matter all that much because it really doesnít do all that well as an APA anyway. Itís a nice orange color, a bit cloudy w/ a head that leaves behind lots of lace. This is mostly juicy, citric hops w/ a pretty substantial malt backbone. It is sort of nutty and oxidized in a way that doesnít necessarily seem intentional but also isnít foul or spoiled seeming. It is just very non-typical for the style and, while it does work reasonably well, I think this beer would be better of w/ a cleaner malt profile. All in all, I find this relatively drinkable and refreshing but I think if I wanted to down more than a couple of these over my long weekend, Iíd get sick of it really fast.

rumproasts (2878) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2013
bottle. Golden with small head. Very thin IPA, not sure if itís simply just a lack of malt, but this needs more flavor in a big way.

Sample at an outdoor beer festival. As far as IPAs go, this one is missing a bit - just barely above average.
