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.

8/11/12. GTMW. Light copper/amber pour with a small khaki head. Malty aroma with caramel and hints of earthy hops, floral aspects, and pine, but you have to search. The flavor is much the same - either old, uninteresting, or both. Eh.

Thanks to GhostFace for this one. Half liter bottle pours deep clear copper with thin off white head. The mild aroma offers up some resiny vague piney hops, a bit of malt and a bit of fruity esters. The taste has a mix of bitter floral hops and some modestly resiny pine hops to midway and then picking up mild levels of earthiness and fruity esters. It stays floral and pine like hop bitterness into the finish and after taste. Kind of bitter, kind of floral, kind of an OK IPA offering.

Hazy dark amber with a strong off-white head and washes of lace. I read several other reviewers comments, and am having trouble discerning some of the taste elements they describe. This starts with a modest caramel malt that shows light sweet spice and toast, then adds enough hops to be noticeable, but not enough to satisfy hop-heads. This is a good selection for the novice hop-sampler. Recommended.

From a big pounder bottle, way to go hinter on the packaging! Smells a little like candy. Yes the big dull old ipa bitterness just swashing around in your mouth. Looks viscous sitting there with its slow rising bubbles in a syrupy lookin brew. Soapy old rude ipa like yellow brown sprce tar. Alky adds a tad if dulling smoothness to it but it never gets cloying. Long thick bitter finish. Yez, bitter nasty thing, on style I guess.

50cl bottle: pours a clear deep golden with a thin-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some light oxidation and piney hop notes. Starts with a lightly toasted malty sweetness with a healthy amount of piney bittering hops and light citrus notes before a drier bittersweet finish. Didn’t taste as fresh as some IPAs and lacked some of the flavor hop components I prefer.

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.

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 (5269) - 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.
