COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale: Old school version of an IPA. Still balanced; not a ‘one trick pony’ pale. Named after the country song “It’s hard to kiss the lips at night that chew your ass out all day long”.

jgb9348 (4709) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2012
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.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Very basic IPA. Clear gold/amber body minimal head. Slight malt nose. Light body above average carbonation. Resinous pine finish that lingers. Sessionable.

AWISLguy (1243) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a very unclear yellowish orange with a million floaties and a very foamy white head. Aroma has faint pine and citrus. Taste is of caramel malt, sweet fruit, some pine, some grapes. Very malty/dark fruity and sweet. Finishes tarty sweet with some length. Shrug? Not my style of IPA.

valpoaj (629) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle pour - yellow orange with robust white head that settles slowly. Aroma is pleasant with flowery hops and some biscuity malts. Flavor didn’t have as much going for it - decent level of hops, but not much backbone to brace the hops on...just not very remarkable. Palate is appropriate for the style. Decent beer, nothing more and nothing less

wlajwl (3816) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Aroma is piney hops and biscuit malts. The flavor is citrus/tropical fruit, a hint of fruit, an undercurrent of malts and a hoppy and medium bitter finish.

GhostFace (321) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2012
12oz bottle. pours a cloudy orange/yellow. nice solid head on this one but it doesn’t stick around for long. ok lacing throughout the beer.. aroma of caramel malt, piney hops and some orange. the taste is malt forward with the pine hops mixed in there. astringent finish that doesn’t linger. not a hop bomb but a decent offering from the folks at Lake Louie!

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2012
Originally reviewed: 12/25/09. Had a bottle of this at the Bodega in La Crosse, WI. Poured into a pint glass. Poured a dark amber with a thin off-white head on top. Little retention. Left some mild lace on the glass. Scents of light flowery hips, orange zest, and buttered toast. Body was crisp and full. This was fairly bitter right off the bat. Slightly harsh with a bit of a lingering aftertaste. Citrus wasn’t as pronounced, just plenty of bitter hops. This wouldn’t be a go-to IPA for me, but I’m glad I tried it.

fidelis83 (1932) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Pours a hazy peach-gold with a 2 finger, chunky, white head that has good retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is floral spicy, pine and citrus hops combined with sweet (Crystal) malt to give it a candy-like aroma. Flavor is sweet malt, grainy malt, caramel, lots more piney hops than in the aroma, bitter citrus and a pretty intense hop "bite" on the back of the palate, not all bitterness, but mostly the acidic, slightly astringent feel. Palate is light to medium bodied, creamy to neutral on entry, has a moderate strength, fairly strong carbonation and sharp, somewhat astringent finish. Not a bad IPA overall, if it had the hoppy aroma and flavor to fully back up that massive bite it could really be something awesome.

PhillyCraft (3185) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle with simon, poured a deep copper with monstrous white creamy head, half my glass was foam from a slow pour. Tons of carbonation. Aromas of peaches, apricots. light malt, pine. Not that strong smelling but dct. Taste is slightyl sour or a metallic hop taste with honey. Very bitter and dry. As it warmed more maltiness came out. Alright

arkurzynski (1503) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Heidel House Brewfest. Pale amber. Aroma is skunky pine/grapefruit with mild malt character. Flavor of moderate pine/grapefruit with some light caramel/toasted malt in the background. Fairly light and easy to drink. With a nice, almost citrus hop residual.
