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.

A little watered down, and a more malted IPA rather than refreshing and bitter

Light orange with abundant white foam. Above average IPA of creamy grapefruit-orange and fruity flavour and aroma thanks to jpm30. Tasty stuff that overhops yet is excellently balanced. Very drinkable.

Bottle: Hazy amber/orange with a big white rocky head. Didn’t quite have the clinging power of La Chouffe, but impressive. Aroma, citrusy, orange and grapefruit. Flavor, grapefruit, and other citrus notes, juicy, very nice bitterness, but a good malt backbone to it as well. Wasn’t expecting much from this, but it’s quite good. Very drinkable, well balanced yet a very nice bitter finish. Kinda wish I had shared it.

From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with the distinctive Lake Louie catfish on the label, no freshness date.
Poured a clear orangey copper with a nice foamy, fluffy, rocky white head that settled into a thin, fluffy, sudsy lacing, a little ringed sticking.
Tasty aromas of pine sap and passion fruit, some citric scents as well, and toasted grain.
Good, steady carbonation and a softly crisp, a lightly textured, velvety smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel.
Interesting taste, a little different than what I was expecting from the aroma, at first, pine and grainy, followed by passion fruit that turns lemony, then grainy with touches of caramelized sugar and a passion fruit and dryish grainy finish. The hops are soft in their bitterness, not an over hopped tongue number, but goes quite well with the malts, nicely balanced.
An easy and smooth drinker, very quaffable, another good Wisconsin IPA.

Soft grassy aroma. Cloudy amber pour with a thick, frothy pour. Lots of citrus flavor meshing with pale and belgian pale malts. Some pepper. Quick and slightly biting. Not too bad, thanks Joey!

Pours a clear dark gold, thin white head. Subtle hop aroma, not much more, but its winter here. Subtle malt and hop flavors. Has to be spot on for the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 12oz bottle, no date. Pours a hazy light orange with a two finger fluffy very light yellow white head. Aroma of some citrus pine hops, some caramel, grainy, and slight buttery malts. Taste up front is grainy and astringent, then turns a little more piney and then citric, some a little bit of butteryness again into a slightly bitter, biscuity finish. This one never gets terribly bitter. Burps perfumey pine. Fairly high carbonation, though it’s a little hard to tell due to the smoothness of the bubbles. Light-medium bodied. Very good beer--I’ve yet to be disappointed by these guys.

Pours a medium cloudy golden with a nice bright white head. Nice sticky lacing also. Wonderful aroma of piney hops, mild grapefruit and pineapple. There is a nice amount of malts in the flavor along with bitter hops and pine. What a kick ass little brewery.
