3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a mostly clear golden yellow color with a fluffy head. Has a mild scent of hops and other grassy scents. Flavor is crisp and mildly hoppy. They don’t go overkill with the hops, just enough to give a crisp refreshing taste. Texture is smooth but just a tad too thin for me. The use of Wisconsin grown hops and barley give this APA a different type of taste not easily duplicate with other beers. Finishes crisp with a slight dryness. Something to try once for the Fall season, but that’s about it.

All Wisconsin ingredients coming together for Central Wisconsin’s great brewer. Hops have a nice bitter bite and are the brew’s distinctive characteristic.

Not my favorite style, but I get some pine, citrus and a little grass aroma. Well balanced, not overly hoppy. If you’re expecting an IPA you’ll be disappointed.

Purchased this locally two days ago. It pours easily and forms an average lacy white head which disappears quickly and leaves a small film on the top and a ring around my glass. The color and appearance remind me of clover honey. The hop flavor is not over powering and there is a citrus after taste. I must say I like the bottle. Artwork is printed on the glass.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle shared by nuplastikk. Thanks Greg!
The beer is mostly clear, with only a slight haziness, appearing orange to maber hued with a small white head. The aroma offers some tangy citrus, namely grapefruit amd orange. Lightly floral with an odd bitterness in the finish. Flavors don’t work in tandem with one another. Light to medium in body. Overal, this was just eh...not a repeat for me.

651mL thanks to nuplastikk. Pours hazy orange. Weak head. Nose is cheesy, dusty, lemon bitters. Taste is very dry, nutty, astringently bitter. Not my style. Very soapy to chemical.

Bomber. Pours a deep murky gold color with a foamy white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine. Taste follows with a solid malt backbone and lingering grapefruit bitterness. Left me wishing for a bigger "Hop Harvest" next year though.
