COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the brewery’s newest beer, this American style IPA is liberally hopped for a taste bud adventure! Slightly malty with a citrus floral hops right up front, a true hophead dream.

aroma and flavor of earthy, organic hops without any citrus nonsense. meaty and substantial. nice to see a small brewery put some effort into the hop bill, not bad at all.

Amber - darker than many IPAs. White head that stacks then gets out of the way. Spicey hop aroma with slight citrus and grass perhaps just a bit of vanilla. Very big hop charge with a milky quality to the malt - nearly unbalanced by the strong hop flair. Better than some "just a lot of hops" attempts by smaller brewers.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Golden pour with nice white head. Nice citrus hoppy aroma with grapefruit. Very smooth hoppy flavor with a light bit of grass mixed in. Very well blended brew. I liked.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Cloudy amber color with a rocky off white head. MIld floral hop aroma. Very hoppy but very drinkable. Not harsh like some other pale ales out there. Hints of pine and a little malt.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Bottle smuggled by my friend Tony. Dark orange color with medium white head. Pine and malt with decent citrus. Not nearly as resinous as some of the other descriptions made me think it would be. Very pleasant and drinkable.

nuplastikk (4673) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2008
12oz bottle. Deep cloudy orange brown color. Great malty sweet piny, slightly astringent hop aroma. Thick half inch head. Big malt and hop profile. Piny and resinous hop taste, which works quite well with the moderate ABV. Full of flavor and very drinkable, this is my kind of IPA.

HonkeyBra (3491) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2008
From the girlfriend. Yeah, this is pretty good. Pours deep amber with a thin white head. Hoppy nose. Flavor is mild fruitiness with slight bitterness. Wish it were stronger, but oh well.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2008
12 oz bottle from Steve’s in WI. Pours an orange amber with a off-white creamy head. Nose is light with pine and some caramel malts. The flavor is mostly pine that comes on strong and allows a few caramel malts to come through. The piney bitterness is long lasting though slightly astringent. A simple IPA of caramel and pine but a decent beer.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Hazy red amber with visible sediment, a rocky, kakhi-colored head sticks around for the duration and leaves chunks of lace all down the glass. Aroma is piney hops, but a little weak. The hop flavor is full bodied though: coniferous hops at the front, turning towards grapefruit and then a soapily bitter finish. Juicy mouthfeel, creamy when it includes some of the head.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Pour is lightly hazed deep reddish amber with a thin but very dense and sticky light brown head...smell is citrus and fruity with some faint floral notes....taste is caramel sweet at first, turning nicely grapefruit and soapy bitter toward the finish....this is much better than the ratings indicate...nice lingering bitter flavor...
