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.

Dragonfly1 (482) - Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle from the Piggly Wiggly in Oconto Falls. Pours nice dark copper, some head. Aroma is all citrus and grapefruit. Taste and body start out great, but then fade to nothing. Good balance initially with the grapefruit hops and the sweet malt, but the body turns very flat/ watery, and the finish is almost too clean. This would have been rated a lot higher for me as the taste and balance is very good, but the body is too watery and ultimately flat... So close to being really outstanding.

screigh (443) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Pours a hazy copper color. Nice white head that settles down and forms a thin sheet. Leaves behind some decent lacing. Aroma is weird and smells a bit like a container of fishing worms. Taste is earthy, dirty and hints of that earthworm container.

A slightly hazy copper and amber brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has a fair amount of citrus and a little bit of pine. There is also some almond and caramel. The taste has lots of grapefruit citrus bursting out like crazy! Wow, one of the most citrus forward IPA’s I have ever tasted. The malt backbone is fairly dry which allows the citrus sweetness of the hops to shine through. There is also a nice toasted nut quality to the finish. This is an excellent citrus tasting IPA.

Vorlauf (4) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2012 does not count
From tap into pint glass, poured with a medium carbonation a light amber colored beer with a deep off white head. Nose is funky citrus and flora with a hint of malt sweetness. The flavor starts with a good bitterness lending itself to a slight biscuit/malt sweetness that finishes with a long citrus bite. This is a well balanced English/American hybrid IPA.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2012
On draught at the Hinterland brewery/brewpub in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy orange amber colored brew with a decent off-white head that has excellent lacing and retention. Aroma of all four (citrus, grassy, floral and medicinal hops) varieties with a hint of caramel malt in the background. Taste is medium bodied, plenty of bitterness that hides most of the caramel malt base. Finish is more citrus and grapefruity with a lingering mild bitterness. A solid IPA throughout.

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2012
Bottle. Orange/caramel malt aroma. Amber color with minimal head. Sweet orange, bready malt and moderately bitter citrus peel flavor. Drinkable but pretty forgettable.

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
1 pint bottle. Mildly hazy amber / orange color. Little - to - minimal off-white head. Some lace. More crisp carbonation, and a dry texture. Nice light bitter taste. Kind of a crisp almost english-style malty - hop aroma. Decent, but as far as IPAs go... Not that great.

Draft at Jacs. Filtered amber-orange. Thin off-white head. Pleasant. Soapy hop aroma, not so far from an APA. One dimensional soapy orange hops, but enough to be respectable. Quite malt centered still, could be sold as a quality hoppy amber. Standard offering, could use a little more depth.
