Small white head with fair retention and lace. Lightly hazy gold hued ale. Nose is very tame. Light citrus, light malts. Body is light, low carbonation, lil metallic. Grainy malts greet you followed by tame citrus and pine notes, lightly metallic, astringent. Dry finish, uneventful.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours golden orange, almost no head. Slight haze. Nose is quite juicy: bits of grapefruit and clementine. Taste is much more subdued: light, tingling hops, effervescent citrus, hint of pine. Uncomplicated, unremarkable. Quite sessionable.

Bottle. Thin white head and lacing on slightly cloudy dark amber. Aroma is grain, light swetness and light woody hops. Sweetish light woody flavor. Kind of plain in the IPA world.

GTMW 2011. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate simcoe hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2012 On tap at Argus BarGrille in Madison, WI. for afternoon, pre-GTOM crawling. Dispensed to a shaker with a hazed, orange/amber hue, abundant, off white head foam, and good cling to the web-like lacing. The aroma was light to the nose, but still a noticeable amount of floral, sweet fruit, and citrus notes, with maybe a touch of resin on the back side. Medium bodied, moderately bittered, and a nice balance of smooth malt and hops. Enjoyably quaffable! This year, before GTOM ticket sales, stopped at the Old Fashioned in Madison and had a shaker full. The citrus was more as grapefruit & lemon, the carbonation was lively, and the hop bitterness lightly lingered into the finish. Again, a good session IPA.
