COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

Strykzone (5042) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Light golden clear beer with a decent off white head. A nice hop aroma with some caramel malt. Earthy flavor a nice hop / malt balance. Light fruit, spice, and floral tastes. No adjuncts noticed. A zesty feel. American Pale Ale Lite might describe this one.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Light golden to straw color. Smallish off-white head. Head caramel malt aromas with light citric zest and a touch of pine wood. Full feel with tight bubbles that carry it across the palate. Fairly dry, in that there is not much sweetness to this one. Some light caramel and a touch of bread dough that is displaced quite quickly by grapefruit zest. I touch too bitter for for my palate, at least without some more sweetness and malt to back it up. Light pine wood come back in at the finish and linger. Needs some more sweet malt or hops flavors to liven this one up. As Iím near the end, things have warmed up a touch and the flavors do seem to be coming out some more. Iíll need to re-evaluate with another bottle soon. Re-evaluated the next day. Still seems like a premium lager with an ale yeast. not enough malt depth.

nuplastikk (4673) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Golden orange color, minimal head. Earthy, soapy hop aroma. Mild soapy bitterness with a smooth malt backbone. Fresh and enjoyable. Medium bodied. Light fruitiness and toasty malt nuances. Pretty good, but hardly world class stuff.

Thanks to skyview for sharing. A better than average pale ale. Great hop aroma and full bodied hop flavor with citrus and grass. Cloudy gold colored.

badgerben (4493) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2007
A growler carted back by Skyview. Gold color with a little head. Strong aroma of citrus and grass. The grass stays in the forefront for flavor; citrus falls to the background. Not much bitterness, but an overall well made beer.

vyvvy (4080) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Thanks to terminus for picking this one up for me. Pours golden / copper with a large rocky off-white head. The aroma has lightly toasted smooth malt with spicy / piny hops. Medium crisp body with lots of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with oxidization, dry caramel malt and spicy hops. The finish is about the same. Hopefully Iíll be able to get a fresh bottle and get in a rerate.

wlajwl (4001) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Citrus and a hint of tea in the aroma. The flavor is mildly hoppy with the malts, possibly caramel, almost tipping the flavor towards more malty than hoppy. Not really as hoppy as most APAs are but a decent session ale and not too far from the standard of the style.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Yellow with quickly diminishing head. Citrus mixed with pine in the aroma. More of the same in the taste. Nice dry sweet fruit finish. Solid APA.

sampled on tap during the tasting portion of their tour, i didnít take much notes but almost all the beers tasted extremely similar. i found this to be nicely hopped with a toasted biscuit finish. decent.

Cavie (3829) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a white fizzy head. Aroma is sweet sugar, easy floral hops and light malts. Flavor is dry, peanutty, light earthy hops, and malts. Not very hoppy but pretty flavorful.
