Had this at Elwoods tap. Pours deep golden, close to amber. little to no head, but a swirl produces a nice, light-tan film of foam. mellow aroma with malty caramel and light pine. taste is a bit more aggressive, with alot more bitterness than was evident from the aroma. medium body and carbonation.

Not too bad, but it could have used a lot more hops. Bread, yeast, malt, with some dark fruit like plum or raisin. Decent finish with a chewy mouth feel. Noticeable alcohol.

Draft at Courtyard downtown Chicago. Poured bright gold and clear. Mild piney nose. Taste is dry and with a nice fresh hop profile. Sessionable and enjoyable.

Narnad (1421) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours a very hazy, deep orange color with a quick falling white head. Aroma has a very strong lemon profile, light bitterness, strong toasted malts at the tail end. Flavor starts off with a strong lemon, mild tropical fruit with a light touch of a grassy, stale bitterness followed by a mild grainy ending. Body is light and very fizzy. Overall all a definite "meh" IPA. Flavors donít work very well together and lack any smooth transitioning seen in a solid IPA. Definitely not something I will have again, albeit a very neat label as anything with Avogadroís number is going to pull my eye in instantly.

[:39] Fucken a bro this shit is some garbage. Pour an amber red with an off white head. Bitter soap, heavy caramel malt, and loads of unfermented sugars round out this filth. Bitter sweet finish. U jokin?

Sweet, spicy hop aroma. Hazy dark amber red with a creamy off-white head. Sweet, not particularly bitter. Eh.

AWISLguy (1058) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle from Brook-Falls Discount. Pours an orangey-pink grapefruit with a white head. Great retention and lacing. Aroma has fruit and some breadiness. Taste is of some fruit, some sweet sugar and some off flavor malts. Sweetish without any real ipa-ness to it. A malty saison? Not sure what they were doing here. It was not a pourer, but it really had nothing redeeming about it either.

ccex (893) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2012
12 oz. bottle from a M&M 6-pack pours a clear amber color with decent white head and some lacing. Not much to smell. Aroma is a little saopy with hints of caramel malt and citrus hops, but not as evident as what I expect from an IPA. Taste is nondescript, lacking bitterness or sweetness. Body is light to medium with flat carbonation. Wisconsinís oldest brewery never ceases to disappoint me except for Huber Bock and a couple of high gravity malt liquors. "Minhas Craft Brewery" should be renamed "Minhas Crass Brewery" or "Minhas Crap Brewery"

Mediocre IPA at best. Nothing really stands out and there isnít a lot of hops or malt. Some light off flavors as well.

Midwest Brewers Fest. Poured slightly hazy orange with white head. Sweet honey aroma with lil hop. Unpleasant taste. Bitter and incorrect.
