3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, gift from Skyview. Orange color and a quickly fading head. Lots of sediment near the bottom of the glass. Pine in the aroma, some citrus as well. Lightly sweet malts and fairly dry, bitter hops. Some fruit here. Good palate. Better than most in its style.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow-gold with white head. Citrus, lots of citrus, some pine, and some bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more citrus. Just fantastic.

Poured hazy from 12oz bottle, which I might add is there second week of bottling. Nice quarter in white head. A hoppy beer but I would describe it as almost a creamy hoppiness that coats you’re mouth lingers for a couple seconds then disappears. Overall a pretty good Wisconsin IPA which can be hard to come by in this state.

Poured at Brocach in Madison. Nice deep golden colour with a bit of haziness. Good 1/2 inch head which settled nicely to a good steady head. Good lacing on the glass. Good solid IPA taste with just enough hoppiness. Not overwhelming - in a good way. Good mouthfeel and short aftertaste. Definitely worth a second glass!

This beer is very citrus infused both in taste and smell. Almost as epic as the packaging

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid, all-purpose IPA. Tends to the pine side of things, harder to find the tropical fruit. Pretty standard color and mouthfeel. Bitter finish, but restrained enough to be sane. (on tap, Irish bar across the street from state capitol building, Madison, WI).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a slightly murky orange-amber color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and pine. The finish is fruity with a pineapple and hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint pour, on tap at the brewpub. Consumed on 7-26-14. Pours an orange-ish light amber. The beer pours mostly clear with a slight haze. Looks good. Good aroma features scents of apricot, pear, mango, and pine. Dry, floral-hoppy taste features flavors of biscuit and grapefruit. Dry finish. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Overall, Karben4 Fantasy Factory is quite pleasant. It’s simple but solid and my kind of beer. I could have given this a score as high as 3.9 or even 4.0, but I am trying to be tougher in my ratings.

Tasted on tap at Karben4. It poured a cloudy orangish amber with a thin off white head and streaky lacing. Delicious aroma of hops and tropical fruit. Big hop front with an excellent bitter finish.
