COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA has a roasty amber color with a lacey, beige head to top it off. With citrus and floral aromas, a pronounced hop presense fills the nose. A slightly biscuity flavor with well balanced bitterness and a malty sweetness finishes with a dry mouthfeel and a lasting bitterness.

Pour from a 1 pint bottle. Slightly cloudy amber brew with off white head. Very luminous but lots of stuff floating near the bottom of the glass (I used a Gnarly Oak Chalice.) Aroma of caramel, resin, floral hops. Taste is sweet malt at the start, some resin emerging in the middle and then a moderately bitter finish. Not a hop bomb. A good IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Last night in Wisconsin, and we are at the cabin. Drove up to a local north woods wine, spirits and more. Great beer selection BTW. I?m on this WI beer kick for this very reason. I like this one. No bells and whistles. Just the IPA you would prefer or expect. Cheers!

Draft sample at Dutch’s. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have lightly toasted bread, grass, earthy, herbal and mild citrus hops, a splash of caramel, mild to moderate bitterness to the finish, not lasting.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Tap sample. Poured clear light copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good to excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

A really nice IPA. Nice citrus aromas and flavors with a nice bitter finish. A quality IPA.

Pailhead (4413) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, peach, orange, and grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There’s some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with citrus, peach, and a touch of caramel. The finish has mild grapefruit. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat soft mouthfeel.

Braudog (5486) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Draft at the Milwaukee outlet. Same, pure amber color as their pale ale. But this delivers a nice, stingingly resiny hoppinesss. Big, slippery mouthfeel. Sturdy and earthy. (#5149, 7/5/2013)

Tap. Beige head with an orange color body. Smaller lacing with hoppy aromas. Malty medium bodied taste. Not phenomenal but not terrible either.

Hazy bronze and copper coloured body with a bit of an orange glow and a nice, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, apricots, oranges, pine, grapefruit and some solid malt notes, all with a hint of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and nutty flavours with some good malt backbone, a tiny bit of the hops noticeable in the smell with only the herbal and grassy ones coming through in the flavour. Aftertaste shows some malt notes, a little caramel sugars and a tiny amount of hops. Overall, a bit subdued, especially for the style, but the dry hopping was present as evidenced by the nose, but the flavour and complexity simply weren’t there - this is more of an APA, if that. I sampled this 50cL bottle purchased from Ridgeview Liqour in Green Bay, Wisconsin on 29-July-2012 for US$2.25 sampled at home in Washington on 18-June-2013.
