Initially a hoppy aroma but also a bit harsh and pissy. Taste falls flat in comparison. Not a lot going on here but passable.

Kind of underwhelming. Pours a golden with nice white head. Aromas are bitter hops. This is thin and watery. Bitter but with a watery finish.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Muddy Waters. Mostly clear orange pour with a full pillowy white head. Perfumy floral nose with some citrus. Unbalanced taste - finishes pretty rough on the bitterness. Not bad overall.

22 ounce bottle
Thanks to cbfobes for sending this as part of a recent trade. I canít wait to try the version from Lakefront as a contrast in the near future. Drinkable and with a fresh bitterness it brings interest to a cold winter evening.

Aroma / Appearance - Warm caramel colored liquid pours easily into the glass. An ivory head falls down like melting snow. Grapefruit, watermelon, and grassy hops brighten the air. Orange glaze tops off an inviting beer.

Flavor / Palate - Watermelon, grass, and woody resin hit the tongue with a single mission. Soon the bitterness rises up like drinking liquified oak trees. Eventually though it settles down into a nice drinking beer. I wish I could their stuff locally.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bomber. Sugary fruit aroma with some hops. Amber with floating particles. Thin white head. Flavor is just not great. Iíve had probably 50 IPAs that taste like this but few that Iíve paid this much for. Contrary to the aroma, fairly dry. May be lower in alcohol but we donít know because they didnít bother to list the ABV on the bottle. Such a pretty bottle too.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2013
22oz bottle from Marsí Cheese Castle in Kenosha, WI. Pours a somewhat hazed, red-orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy and foamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a soapy lacing. Aroma is floral citruses and a bready caramel malt backing with a light sweetness. Touches of pine and a light herbal spice. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, bready caramels with a decent floral hopping giving off some grapefruit notes. Finishes dry with a medium-light bitterness as well as a few lightly spiced pines and some doughy caramel. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a foamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, this wasnít bad, but I was hoping for a lot more. Balanced and easy drinking at least.

Lemke10 (771) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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 donít 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 thatís about it.
