Bottle purchased at Four Firkins. Strong hop presence from the beginning. This one knows it’s an IPA and owns it. Golden color with orange hue. Engulfs the mouth with hops with a last second attempt to balance with a slight sweetness. A pretty good IPA when you’re searching for one in its pure form.

Honestly I don’t even remember this beer. I remember the label and that is about it. Must not be that great. I just took my rating on BA for this one.

Bottle at Fiddlesticks in Elkhorn with Sarah and the Trauts. Poured a foggy orange with 1 finger head. Nose is rich with hops...full flavor....very smooth...very tasty. Will just have to do another.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 The Lost Notebook Files Beer #2. Got this as a gift from friends in a beer of the month club type order. Pours a clear amberish brown with minimal head. Aroma is thin and grassy. Tastes like ten ounces of IPA mixed with two ounces of water. Mediciney aftertaste. In retrospect, this probably wasn’t very fresh.

Draft at the Wicked Hop in Milwaukee. This is a pretty, orange amber color. And this is a pretty nice, fruity drink. Ctirus, cantelpe, very smooth floral character. Now I wish they’d had this on at the brewery. Great offering. (#5150, 7/5/2013)

Tap Stagshead mostly to fill out my flight but a WI tick is always unexpected bonus. Pours golden with citrus nose. Tastes of grapefruit, apples, resin, white pepper, and grass. Slight alcohol presence but overall ok.

Nice hop smell with a light malt undertone. A cloudy amber shade. Taste of hops but rounds off quick with a taste of a wet hop. Big mouth feel slightly syrupy. Mello for an ipa but full flavor.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Pint glass. Dark golden amber with significant haze. Thick white head and mild lacing. Nice hoppy citrus aroma with some caramel malts. Taste is well balanced between the caramel malts and the bitter hops. Hints of the fruit (citrus) in there. Medium body with medium carbonation. Bitter, crisp finish with lingering malty aftertaste. I really liked this one.
