esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2013
On tap at the Grumpy Troll. Slightly hazed amber with a thin white head and a sheet of lace. Aroma is tropical and overly sweet with mangoes, fruit rind, caramel and stale socks. Taste is a bit odd and sweet with caramel and over ripe fruit. Kind of a plastic feel with a moderate bitter finale.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Mt. Horeb, WI). First time in. Pours a good darker amber golden hue, gentle haziness, goood amber glow, some summer sunset. Bigger frothy whitish head atop stays firmly sized, sticks around as a good layer. Laces well overall. Aromas offer a blend of American hops, melon and grapefruit, touch of gumball, fruit and bready malt. Mellow straw, bready malts, some florals and fresh cut grass. Clean, decent hop bite. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some gumball, florals, wafts of citrus rind. Good bitterness hits up front, meeting some fruity elements, melon and a faint white grape. Firm bitterness, florals. Less prominent fruity big citrus feel. Middle is bready, some straw, good gumball, touches of grapefruit and orange. A touch sweet in the backend but starts to clean up well into the backend, some good resiny bitterness sustains as we finish up. Florals, crisp straw and bready malts. Clean and bitter, a bit simple but it certainly is drinkable. A touch sweet at times but overall pretty solid.

Pours a velvety rust color on a hot July day. Small and creamy head on the glass. Not overly hoppy and easy drinking for those getting into the IPA scene. The taste is mildly bitter on the back and side of the tongue but dissipates quickly. A good, summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Has some really nice citrus scents with some faded pine scents. Taste is a bitter kick as it touches the tongues and finishes with a big grapefruit flavor and has a lingering bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2012
On tap at Grumpy Troll. Just put o, quite thick and cloudy, really yeasty. Thin, patchy head. Lots of fresh citrus in the aroma. Probably needs a little more carbonation. Fresh, dry hop tones and a steady yeasty golden malt body. Nice piny aftertaste, but the lack of sufficient carbonation doesn’t work so well. Unrefined, tastes like a homebrew. Chunky yeast leftovers in the bottom of the glass.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces thickly. Aroma has notes has noted of light grapefruit and pine with a bit of backing bread. Flavor begins with grapefruit backed by grains and has a bit of tropical fruit in the finish.

andyhwcinc (1426) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Grumpy Troll in Mt. Horeb, WI. Appearance is a darkish clear brown with a thin but frothy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, could be amarillo, has a unique quality, smells light but pronounced. Taste is really good, smooth with light bitterness, nice and balanced but tips more towards the citrusy hops. Good stuff.

On tap at brewpub, pours a clear light golden with a thin white head, refreshing hop aroma with some citrus and pine, the flavor has a good amount of tropical fruit mixed in with the nice malt backbone, pretty bitter finish, nice.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2011
On draught at the Grumpy Troll brewpub in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a slowly dissipating off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing and a thick white ring. Aroma of cascade hops, a hint of tangerine and light caramel malt. Taste is medium bodied, well balanced cascade and amarillo hop character with a caramel malt base beer. Finish has a short mild bitterness followed by some sweet grapefruit and tangerine aftertaste.
