2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 I suspected this brand would be crappy and was pleasantly surprised by the stout. This however, proves me right in my suspicions. It starts as a nice enough IPA. Decent orange color and a small head of nice, fine bubbles. The initial waft of hops is even pretty nice w/ a good bit of citrus. That fades fast though and while there is a decent balance of sweetness and bitterness, there is no real character to this aside from that. The hops grow metallic in the finish and the sweetness cloys as it warms. Ultimately neither the hop bitterness nor the heavy carbonation can stop this from feeling a bit thick and heavy. The more I drink, the more strange off notes from whatever oddly fruity variety of hops they used. Definitely, this is proving to be one of those fake craft breweries that doesn’t fool anyone.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Who can’t resist Pick ‘N Spend house beer? I know who should – me. But in a never ending quest to drink as many as I can from Wisconsin I buy everything but mega swill from the Badger state. Hazed amber with a thin off-white topper that rescinds quickly and leaves some thick ass lace on my glass. Aroma is everyday amber with caramel and some floral and vinous notes beneath. Taste is sweet with caramel and citrus and floral notes to boot with a moderate bitter finish. All in all, not awful and above my expectations.

Bottle from Sussex Pick n Save enjoyed at Helfaer Field for Ben’s final appearance there. Aroma has pine, citrus and caramel, slightly skunky and malty. Taste is pine, grapefruit/orange citrus mix and thick caramel back. Medium bodied. Finishes thinner than expected for the maltiness in the body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Pick ’n Save in Marshfield, WI. Pours a clear copper orange colored IPA with an average sized off-white head that dissipates to a white film top and leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma of three-C’s hops, some caramel malt and a hint of lime zest. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with a sweet orange-like zest, a hint of pine and grapefruit and some caramel malt. Finish is semi-sweet with some lingering mild bitterness with an orange - zest aftertaste.

Bottled. Poured clear lighter orange with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up pine and grapefruit over sweet caramel malts.. simple overall, and malt-focused. The flavor found moderate pine and orange zest bitterness over caramel and a touch of toffee.. spicy, bitter, engaging finish.. tasty stuff. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. we’ll-balanced.. this was surprisingly good.
