4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow this IPA pale ale as hoppy with a fresh and floral aroma and may be my 3rd or 2nd favorite IPA as of 6-7-11 with New Glarus’ Moon Man and perhaps another beating it out. It has the richest, thickest, and creamiest large head of an IPA I’ve had so far. It is golden yellow, very hoppy, and smooth with a nice mellow yet pungently sharp IPA flavor like a fine cheese. This is a Wisconsin beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle into a tulip. Deep cloudy, brown gold with an ample tan head, rather large bubbles. Deep malty, molasses notes, some piney resin, lighter citrus, some floral notes. Bitter, quite tangy. Deep back of the mouth sweetness predominates through the finish. Hint of spice. Medium body, very acidic. Touch of carbonation, though the acidity keeps it lively. Reasonably clean, quite chewy. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, pine. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Some floral and resin notes emerge in the taste, but mostly citrus in the form of grapefruit rind and bitter lemon peel.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle poured into Shaker. Pours a clear gold with a medium off white head that disappears quickly. Medium carbonation. First taste has the small bitter taste of grapefruit that suddenly changes to hops. Leaves the hoppy tingle on the back of your tongue. Very standard IPA - tasty but doesn’t scream out in flavor. I’d drink more of it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an unclear medium orange amber. Small soapy white head. Aroma is grassy, soft pine, semi sweet citrus. Flavor follows. Quite hoppy. Grapefruit rind stands out. Solid bitterness. Lighter medium body. Doesn’t have a lot going exactly. Pretty good drinkability. I’d have another.

Noticed the bottle date after getting home...6 months old. One word "butterscotch". It might be good fresh but I know it’s not now. Check the date.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle that I picked up in Wisconsin on my recent road trip to Yellowstone. Pours a lighly hazed golden amber with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left a partial layer of foam with each sip. Very pleasant aroma of fresh oranges. Nice citrus freshness and a bit of a change of pace from the grapefruit found in most IPA’s. The flavor is caramel and malt up front followed by some mild orange citrus bitterness. Medium bodied.
