An average ipa at best. Very fruity and not too hoppy. Smells malty. Had this at my brother in laws house. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcr (2256) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Draft. Light amber body. Frothy white head. Light aroma of toasted grain, citrus, lemon, sweet grapefruit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Inoffensive and easy drinking. On the sweet side.

Finhead (1258) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Hazy, amber-orange pour with a white head. The aroma is packed with citrus and floral hops. It has a light, somewhat thin texture with lively carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter, especially in the finish.

Clear golden amber with a frothy white slowly fading topper. Aroma is a floral citrus mix with caramel and grains. Taste is sweet with citrus, caramel and middle-of-the-road malt. Zippy finish with average bitterness.

Bottle at a friends tasting. From notes. Floral and pine with a huge citrus nose and taste. Probably one of the better capital beers Iíve had.

Brigadier (3145) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle
A pickup over the Great Taste of the Midwest this was consumed as soon as possible to enjoy a solid Wisconsin IPA. Itís not the biggest or boldest example of the style. That said it was worth the $1.99. This falls easily into the "nice to have a six pack around" category.

Aroma / Appearance - A caramel bronze base sits in the glass lazily. Starchy white head is the color of bleached laundry. Earthy grass, warm hops, and a pleasant malt bill balance against each other. This is hoppy without being an IPA bomb and almost feels like more of an English style IPA.

Flavor / Palate - Tree bark, resin, and the bitterness of muddy hops slide gracefully over the tongue. The transition is like licking a basket of pine cones that have dried by a fireplace. Malt driven flavors sweep into a finish that reminds me of an English pale ale. For that reason it might keep better than some hop bombs but I still would not sit on it.

Ericular (716) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Pours a clear light orange with lasting head and great lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus with orange zest, earthy, with floral hops. Taste is laid back, light, crisp up front into a mild hop burn, settling on a great caramel and bready malt aftertaste. Finishes dry in the palate. I havenít been too impressed with Capitalís brews in the past, but this is very underrated. Itís greatest strength is how laid back it is.

Nuffield (3727) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Yellow. Somewhat floral aroma, and a flavor that offers some curious notes later, including some citrus but also some spices, like juniper and light licorice. A little astringent as it went on. Not noticeable in the flavor, but the 6.2% was apparent in the effect it had. Slightly richer, more oily body, than expected. O.k. but perhaps a bit flawed. Bottle.
