Lightly hazed straw color with a moderate white head. Floral and resin aromas. Some husky corn aromas as well (perhaps a bit worty). My first sip has me gasping, OMG. Did I open a can of corn and start drinking the liquid off of the nuggets. Somewhat perfumy. I continue and am looking for any redeeming quality. Woody sap and stale hops. I must not continue. Itís been some time since may last true drain pour. 2/10

Pours a clear golden with white head. There is really not much on this for an ipa. Quite disappointing to be honest.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Pours a hazy orange amber. Small white head. Aroma is very dry and unusual. Dried grass and flowers. Chalky. Flavor isnít any different. offensive even... Very off putting. Yuck

Aroma is different, hard to pick out. Grass, herbs, flowers, some hops and citrus. Taste is a little bit cardboard, grass, herbs, citrus, a little dry. Chalky pine.

Gold Color, Huge Foamy Head, Decent Thin Lacing. Initial Pour Has A Light Hop Scent, that becomes a Faint Sour Funky Aroma. Reminds me of Sorghum. Sweet First Sip Impression Immediately Followed By Sour Taste. From there on you no longer get that sweetness but wheat like acidic citrus sourness instead. Light Hop taste is hidden somewhere under that sourness. Itís a miss for style. Itís a mediocre brew overall. Drinkable but not really enjoyable. Another sign that good and bad things in life always balance out..Thanks to Slava for a Free Gift. I was really excited to get something that I havenít tried already.Too Bad, it is not that good. Pass It...

JMerritt (1894) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2013
On tap at Wisconsin Dells location. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma isnít overly aromatic - some light pine when the glass was first brought out, but the aroma waned considerably. There was a bit of spicy rye and orange peel as it warmed. Lightly bready flavor with fresh cut straw and hay flavors. Highly carbonated. A rather decent session beer.

The aroma of this beer makes you regret your purchase almost immediately. My first impression was wet dog with a note of citrus. The beer itself is golden in color with a weak head. The taste is citrus with a bit of floral notes. Could not finish. Would not buy again.

Really a strange beer. Very fruity and flowery tasting. But very bitter but a definitely hoppy beer. Hard to drink more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madvike (3105) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2013
On tap at the Middleton Sprecher Pub as "American Pale Ale" - Pours clear amber with a ring of white head. Nose is orange marmalade, jammy hops, garlic/onion, with a pretty clean malt base. Taste is the same blend. Real smooth, with mellow malt--pretty clean. Smooth and well-carbonated. So apparently this beer is horrible out of the bottle, but on tap I have to say I quite enjoyed it.
