cbfobes (2293) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 12, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark golden with a nice white head and lacing through the glass, looks nice, the aroma is pretty sweet with more biscuit and bread coming through than hops, the flavor has a light front end and a little kick of hops in the finish, the mouthfeel is pretty light and the finish is dry, just seemed pretty thin through out, glad to see Capital expanding their styles a little bit, but this one isn’t going to be their big seller.

duchowbob (9) - Windsor, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Pretty nice lighter style"session" IPA with good citrus hop balance...could use deeper color and a bit more dry hopping

backdaft (220) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange in color. Thin white head leaves just a bit lacing. Fairly average IPA. Lightly sweet, biscuit malt with a moderate pine bitterness. Decent, but needs more hop bitterness.

illiniphil (130) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2013
Capitals first shot at an IPA. Poured a nice dark golden with a one finger head that hung around with decent lacing. Pretty straightforward palate but yet enjoyable. Not complicated but yet very solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HopScripts (28) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2013
Overall, very solid and well balanced beer. Taste was just a little too simple and straight forward. The citrus smell and bitter taste came through, but the flavor was fairly one note. This would make a wonderful food pairing beer. Good beer, but it needed something more to be a great beer.

crossovert (7410) - Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Whte grape aroma might suggest sauvin hops in the aroma. Flavor is again winey, medium bitterness, light mandarin orange, and some bready malt. Crisp, dry palate.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottled. Poured bright, lighter orange with a well-retained, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up orange zest, grass, and peppery hoppage over sweet caramel and biscuity notes.. OK, but it didn’t really pop. The flavor found orange, grass, and pine bitterness over bready malts.. grainy, residual sugars and bitterness on the finish.. a bit tacky and sharp by the end. Lighter-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. didn’t flow great.. this was just OK.

arkurzynski (1521) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle. Clear pale amber pour with white head. Nose is too clean with mild pine hops and lager/pale malt dominating. Flavor is a sweet, lightly biscuity malt with a moderate pine bitterness that lingers and is fairly drying. Needs more hop aromatics and less of a dry finish. Overall, an okay offering, but forgettable.
