Not sure what the name means. Impressive. Has a thick, oily and creamy body with amazing lace (how sweet the sound). Harshly bitter with a long soapy finish, although the initial sweetness helps it from being completely unbalanced. Maybe that’s the speedbump they’re talking about.

Sampled on draught: Pours a pretty clear but bright amber with a cream medium size head. Aroma is very earthy, subtle citrus qualities with plenty of carbonation that keeps the aromas continuously rising. Taste is fruit forward, with fresh hopped flavors, grapefruit and lime- pleasent all around.

Served on cask at the brewpub (downtown location). I had this the night before the Great Taste of the Midwest festival. I have to admit cask is not my favorite way to drink beer, as I feel that it muddles the flavor somewhat. That said, this was a nice creamy mouthfeel with candied hops and a smooth finish. Not the normal bite that I like, but I could tell this is a solid offering nonetheless.

Very nice. Pine. Hops. Grass. All that you expect from a West Coast IPA served at the pub downtown. Good IPA.

I was a little disappointed in this. Solid aroma, and really nice hoppy flavor but there was almost no carbonation and the body was surprisingly thin for a beer with this much flavor. Almost watery.

Golden amber, white head. Nose is mango & catty, carmel malts. Flavor is strong hops (mango, catty, raw green pine), very bitter in the finish with a hint of lingering caramel. Very ’juicyfruit’

Had this one on draught as part of a four-sampler at the brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Clear, deep amber pour with a wispy head, floral nose, almost soapy in its perfume, very bitter and floral hoppiness, rose and some strawberry, strong finisih. Interesting but kind of weird.

Served on an engine at the downtown location. Pours a clear glowing orange with a brownish tint and a soapy beige head that laces all over. Florals, citrus, grapefruit, with fresh green hops. Lightly sweet caramels. Oranges and pine. Very creamy. Long pine and fresh green hop finish. Really fresh and so smooth from that engine. *note I also had it not on the engine and it lost a lot of the creaminess and fresh flavor.
