UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Murky gold pour. Skunky ass citrus nose. Bitter finish. Not great. Not close.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a deep golden haze with a fair white head. Aroma is off-putting; sour rotten peaches comes to mind. Taste is light grainy malts & resin-like bitterness. Light body and soft carbonation. This beer simply does not taste very good to me.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden orange, deep fruity hop aroma. Taste is sweet fruity hops up front, then into a really long lasting bitterness. Little too long. Not a good pizza beer, which might have been part of the problem.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, clover honey and floral hops, faint, but nice. In mouth, a light bodied yet nice IPA with grassy floral hops, decent. On tap at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a good place to start if you are looking to try an IPA for your first time. It pours a cloudy golden amber with a heavy scent of hops. There is a good bitterness to it but not as overwhelming as other hoppy beers. Perhaps a little on the weaker side for folks that love the bitter taste of IPA’s but still a decent brew.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange with thin head. Good tropical nose. Flavor is a pretty plain and typical but with a sort of Pepto Bismol twist. Nice to smell, less to taste.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow orange with particulate floaties. Large creamy white head that dissipates slowly leaving clumpy lacing. Aroma is grain corn syrup, and resin. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet, lightly bitter. Medium light body. Taste was more like a slight hoppy lager. I can only assume that this sat on the shelves a while, but as-is it was not good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold color with a thick white head that laces the glass. Light hops aroma. Flavor has some sweet malt but also lots of sweet citrus and bread dough. Full flavored, but an astringent aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light amber or nice copper glowing body with a hint of an orange tint and a thick, seven centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, yeast, bread, hop pellets, grass, hay and a bit of an earthy note. Medium-bodied; Nice bright light hops at first with a bit of a bready/yeast note then a grassy, herbal hoppy flavour at the end. Aftertaste is relatively mild with the herbal flavours coming out and not much of the hops and hardly any malt. Overall, perhaps a bit too watery and not enough flavours, definitely not enough complexity for the style. Still, nice to try from Wisconsin and worth trying if you aren’t from the area. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Trig’s Cellar 70 in Minocqua, Wisconsin on 28-July-2012 for US$1.65 sampled at home in Washington on 09-October-2012.
