COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied, orange hued ale. A variety of toasted and caramel malts create a nice backdrop to the aggressive citrus and floral hop notes.

Can. Thanks to CanIHave4Beers! A rich copper pour is topped with a fluffy light tan head. Bright citrus and caramel are up front on the nose. There is also a little bit of dough. This tastes like sugared up grapefruit mixed with iced tea. There is a little bit of caramel in the strong black tea finish. A little too sweet and unbalanced for my tastes. Smooth mouthfeel for the ABV.

From a can.
The beer pours a hazy orangish gold with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a little sweet with some grassy & citrusy hops.

The flavor is nice enough, sweeter and more malt forward than I usually like my IPAs to be. The bitterness balances this to a degree and it’s got some nice spicy and fruity hop character.

Not really my style of IPA, good enough though... I’ve had worse from "cooler" breweries.

Can. Pour is dark orange with giant foam head. Aroma is orange, lemon, sweet, toasted malt. Taste is pine and citrus hops, punch but not overly so, some resin, light toasted malt back.

Steasy66 (891) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pours with tons of head, IPS color. Almost no aroma. Disgustingly sweet with very little hop character. No date on the can, so add that to the list of failures.

tmoreau (2474) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2013
12 oz. beer refrig. bottle carefully poured to a Czech-pils glass, but still produced an overly abundant amount of cream colored, meringue-like head foam on top of a hazed, orangy gold hued liquid, with a good deal of rising effervescence to the modest amount of beer that was exposed, and lasting, patchy lacing. The nose was lemony & grapefruity, some sweetness, and a touch of pine. The flavor was a decent earthy, rindy, and lingering hop bitterness, but was otherwise very sweet to the taste. Light bodied, with any good effervescence wasted on the head, as the carbonation seemed to flatten out, leaving the texture a little thin on the palate. Alcohol influence was negligible. The aroma was promising, but the appearance and taste were more in line with many homebrew/extract recipes that I’ve sampled.

Can. Slight haze, orange copper pour with a foamy head. Citrus and floral hop, some caramel sweetness. Bitterness is moderate. Not bad.

pkbites (693) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2013
On tap @ Milwaukee Ale House, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Nice amber hue. Aroma of hops is second only to the palate punch you get from the bitterness. WOW! This is one spicy meatball! Hopped to the max. Not a slammer. One has to sip this. If you’re looking for a sweet tasting light beer, this aint it!

arkurzynski (1543) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Deep orange pour with off-white head. Nose is sweet caramel and vegetal pine hops. Sweet caramel malt upfront, lightly toasted, with more vegetal and somewhat minty hops. A little slick and heavy on the palate. Pretty gross.

Very tasty and perfect look to this beer. I have enjoyed it greatly on a recent trip To the Milwaukee ale house as the wife is now driving at 7.7% each. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Can. Pour is a hazy golden with foamy white head. Aroma is weak hops, flavor is even weaker, kind of stale hops. Really nothing special.
