Draft at source. Nose is creamy orange with light citrus and grapefruit. Creamy caramel malt gets in the way of the hops. Meh. Too sweet and underhopped

Ernesto987 (5578) - Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2014
draft at brewery, the brewpub was a cross between moe’s tavern and Cheers. But no one knew my name. Sweet malty balanced bitter earthy grassy piney brew. Drinkable.

Tasted at the brewpub. It poured an orangish/copper color with a white head. The aroma was hoppy with citrus, pine and caramel malts. The taste was hoppy with grapefruit, other citrus flavors and notes of pine and malts. Tasty.

Very blunt hops, nice bitterness, alcohol is there a bit, seems stronger than the abv would suggest.

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Villa Park, IL). Pours a nice glowing copper amber hue, a bit more sunny of the edges, quite reddish with a nice healthy frothy tan or offwhite head atop. Thicker film, dies down. Aromas are a decent dose of citrusy grapefruit, lemon, florals. Touches of grass, gentle spice, and some touches of pale malts, bread, and faint toast. Initial is medium bodied, offering a healthy dose of fruity citrus hops, lots of grapefuit and rind, touches of lemon, florals, grass. The hops grow, middle shows dry bitter hops, touches of bread and biscuits. A touch of melon, more lemon, and a decent biscuity pale malts quality gives a touch of body into the finish. Overall, a pretty pleasant (though not a hop screamer) type of IPA. Solid in everyway, fairly fresh. Tasty.

Wolfenkopf (188) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2010
This IPA is one of my favorites. It is mild in aroma and taste and not overly engineered in any respect. The aroma is hoppy, giving the drinker a clear indication that this ale is an IPA but sensitive enough to not give anything else away until the first sip. The head is not too frothy but never calms down completely. The palate is extremely smooth and never leaves a bitter aftertaste. The brew’s abv is over 6%, but one would never suspect it given the brew’s smoothness. This one can be enjoyed over the span of hours without becoming boring or tedious.
