COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Traditional IPA is a hophead’s dream. The distinct sharpness of British hops and moderate alchohol are balanced by a dry, malty profile and crisp flavor. The result is a brew as smooth as a sunset paddle on the glassy waters of Lac Du Bay. Seasonal March - October.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 12 oz bottle poured into a tumbler..golden orange with fluffy white head..aroma of florals,resin,pine..crisp,dry taste with some hop bitterness..not an American IPA so I was surprised by crispness but expected a little more hop profile..just ok.

trapped (1295) - New York City, TURKEY - JUN 5, 2015
Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Reddish dark amber with medium sized creamy beige head, slight caramel aroma, low carbonation, slightly hoppy bitter caramel taste, abrupt finish with bitter aftertaste. I did not really taste the hops much, more like an ESB.

downender (6880) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle at Top Hops, NY, 19/5/2015. AMber in colour, with a slight, off-white, head. Hedgerow, slightly spicy, hops, robust, earthy malts, some warming alcohol before a dryish finish. Good.

deyholla (7945) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a slight orange hue and a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has earthy grains and hay with a bit of sweet citrus and grass underlying. Flavor is grassy with some sweet grains and a kiss of citrus.

AWISLguy (1691) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2015
At the Hilltop Bar and Grille in Stevens Point during the State weekend. Amber pour with little head. Sweet, malty, has some light pine. Shrug? Not one of CW’s best. 13.2

Caramel and toffee malts dominate the front of the palate while bitter hops take over in the back. Decent.

akoeninger (536) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2015
Copper colored with a good amount of lacing. A pleasant citrus and toast aroma. Flavor is hops, rind, and toasted malt. Very well balanced with a more subdued hop profile compared to more typical American IPAs. Lightly malty finish. Very tasty

chinchill (2892) - South Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2015
12 oz bottle. Deep amber with a very durable head. A hit of hops in the finish leads to a moderate-mild lasting bitter aftertaste.

GranvilleTim (1778) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2015
mahogany pour with a tan head. Aroma is earth hops. Taste is a nice malt base, caramel malt, earthy hops. Nice balance. Citrusy aftertaste. Nice lacing.

tmoreau (2902) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a lightly hazed, coppery gold color, with good persistence to the sudsy, off white/light tan head, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose started with a bit of dankness, then light grain, with some toasted malt, pit fruit, and maybe a touch of citrus. The taste was sweet, then an even tempered, earthy & rind-like bitterness that lingered well. A little less than medium bodied, with modest carbonation that was just lively enough to avoid a watery texture. Otherwise, a rather tasty, Brit-style IPA.
