3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask into english pint, Madison brew pub (from my notes): Big creamy bubbling yellow oatmeal-looking head over a mostly clear, orange-copper beer. Nice thick lacing. Smell is mild, but there are some corn sugars in there with the faintly flowery hops. Creamy texture (from the cask), buttery caramel malts followed by a metallic, salty bitter in the finish. The middle is kind of mealy before the hops kick in, and overall I didnít really enjoy this as much as I wanted to. Some beers donít benefit from cask treatment.

Draft at the source. Jsut a pitiful excuse for an ipa, sweet, oxidized, stale, exactly what you donít want.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5oz on tap at Great Dane brewpub. Clear orange amber color. Thin off-white kind of greyish head. Leaves good thicker lace. Caramel malt, some spicy rye type aroma. Some mild citrusy fruity piney hop, more malt forward. Moderate sweet taste. Light bitterness. Pretty mild and sweet for an IPA. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp light carbonation. Slick texture. Not great.

Pours amber-orange with a long lasting white head. Smooth hop profile, not excessive in any one hop. Not west coast bitter, no "C" hop flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Great Dane-Downtown Madison, served in a 10 oz. glass. The imperial pints had already gotten the best of me. Downgraded. Pours a clear orange-gold color with a small, slightly off-white head. Notes of grass, herbs, straw, pale and toasty malts, and some citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, bitter mouthfeel. Very fresh. Nice IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the downtown brewpub. This is a clear, dark amber brew with a medium, sticky head. Drinks quite smooth, if a bit metallic perhaps. Doubt this is a "winter seasonal" since I had it for July 4th brunch. (#5133, 7/4/2013)

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Great Dane in Wausau. Pours a clear amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is lightly hoppy, some pine. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, pine hops, with a bitter pine finish. Underwhelming.
