3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Fruity, citric and floral hop aroma, practically leaps out of the glass, with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, orange, pine and fainter malty tones, with some toasted grain and honeyish sweetness in the background. Hazy light-medium orange amber in color with a lasting, very fine-bubbled head and a thin sheet of lace. Flavor profile is quite hop-focused, more citrus and fruit character throughout, with a touch of caramel malt sweetness amidst the hop onslaught, with a generous dosage of hop bitterness from about midpoint onwards, finishing dry and resinous. Finely but sharply effervescent and lightly oily on the palate with a medium body. Certain to satisfy any hop craving, no doubt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light amber color with a medium white head. Strong piney and resinous aroma. Taste leads with an almost skunked bitterness before the malt kicks in to save things. Once you get past the initial too-strong bitterness there’s a good APA flavor underneath. I’m more than OK with a big, hoppy IPA, but this doesn’t quite pull it off. Overall it’s good, but not great.

Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of bread, candied orange, pink grapefruit and tangerine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, tangerine and orange zest with a smooth dry lightly bitter lingering tangerine finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Four Firkins. Pours an amber orange with a bit of a white head. Some streaky lacing. Aroma has heavy pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is of pineapple, grapefruit, sprucey pine, and chewy resin with a solid caramel malt backbone. Quite bitter and tart, with that solid underlayer of sweetness. Medium bodied with a touch of alcohol. Finishes more bitter than sweet, but with some presence of both. This was enjoyable in a bitter not-super-fruity way. 13.9

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Slightly hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with a flavors of resiny hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Zipp’s Liquors. Generous citrusy hopping in aroma, some caramel candy. Red/copper color. Citrus, caramel steps in, some pine, goes to balance, a bit more grapefruit in mid and final, and light bitter tracks. Medium body. Pretty standard IPA. Tasty and all, for sure, but not a lot of depth here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during my stay for GTMW. Pours a mostly hazy darker orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving decent bits of lace. Good bigger piney hop, some orange citrus, resin. Light caramel malt. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Lighter sweet. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Solid IPA. Day was dragging on a bit, this certainly woke my senses up a little, as advertised.
