Orange pour with foamy head. Pretty bitter and doesn't have the qualities I live in an IPA. Just average

A hazed dark amber IPA with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, sweet banana malt with light herbal hops. In mouth, a smooth grassy malt with fruity esters, banana, grassy hops...is this a Belgian IPA? Or was I served the wrong beer. On tap at Madison airport location, Jan 22 2012.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Great Dane Downtown. Pours a deep and clear copper with tinted white foam on top. Nose is floral with a citrus slant in the background and dusty malt. On taste, definitely English with round and full Pale Malt coupled with EKG floral notes. Mild bitterness. Pretty standard EIPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served in a house-logo pint glass at Doty St., with a clear, copper color, an average amount of off white, small bubbled foam to the head, and some light, spotty lacing. The aroma was initially a little medicinal as iodine, along with some light mid-fruit and floral notes. The flavor added some bready nature to the fruit and floral notes, but concentrated more on the hop bitterness than a balance. As described, the temperature was warmer, but the low to no carbonation gave the whole experience a watery and thin character. Okay with my bar snacks, but not that impressed.

On tap. Deep orange color with head that gives way to heavy lacing. Nice floral/grapefruit hop aroma. Nice caramel/biscuity malt flavor with spicy/citrus hop flavor. Pleasantly surprised! Very well balanced IPA. Similar in profile to Two-hearted, believe-it-or-not. Well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the downtown, Madison Great Dane brewpub. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissipates but leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma of dry roasted caramel malt, some light grapefruit zest, iced tea, and a hint of pear. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of caramel malt, dry leafy and floral hops and a hint of brown sugar. Finish is a touch more malty than hoppy. Semi-dry with some iced tea and caramel malt aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served on cask. Clear copper pour with a large, very open head, good retention but very little lace. Floral and pine hops aromas. Flavor very much a British styled IPA, good balance between the bitter, lightly floral hops and the beany malts. Well crafted, but a bit light on flavor. In some sense more felt than tasted, more sparkle and body than bitter and sweet.
