3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of Oddefellowe. Pours gold with a bit of haze and white head. The aroma is sweet with malts and earthiness and then it grows into a mild level of spicy hops. The taste is grainy and then moving toward earthy hops and growing spicy hops along with a touch of citrus. This has a nice mix of fresh hops that lean firmly into hop bitterness but with only slight amounts of hop flavor and it creates a brew that is askew from the standard for the style. Nice stuff. The elevated level of bitterness really works for me.

Pours a clear golden apricot color with a large foamy head. Pretty busy carbonation in the body. The aroma has a lot of grainy malt with some soft citrus notes. The flavor is similar, with floral notes and long bitterness. Soft mouthfeel with foamy carbonation.

Bottle... Poured hazy, golden orange with a thick, foamy, white head. Nose was malty, with a flaint hop presence. Black pepper, grains, and slight hop bitterness. Slightly sweet, cookie-like dough sweetness. Light, dry, malted grain finish.

bottle-wow, this was bad! pours lite orange with a small fizzy white head. nose of apple skins-must be infected with a touch of dirty pool water. grainy flavors of grassy hops, pool water, cholorine, and husky malts. An IPA? definately not american, maybe brittish. a touch of diacytl comes out in the finish. This was really bad! a really bad example of the style and just a plain bad beer!!!!!

On tap at Byrd’s in Fitchburg, WI - Even though this was on tap, this just felt off. Had this one in the bottle many times and it tasted fresher and brighter. It was a nice deep amber pour with a small off-white head. Everything seemed fine, but the smell was kind of a milky malt, balanced with some light citrus hops. It’s fairly sweet, but doesn’t taste fresh--kind of limp. The hops switch a bit on the taste--real piney with a touch of citrus, then transition into a grassy, bitter finish. It’s just not fresh tasting--may have to re-rate this one out of the bottle.
