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.

On draft at Milwaukee Ale House. The beer is dark copper with a quarter inch of off-white head. The aroma offers resinous hops, pine, earth. Hop flavor followed by subtle notes of mint and herbal tea. An odd assortment. Not entirely off-putting, but certainly unusual. Some bready notes as well, finishing with a semi-sweet bitterness. Interesting. One and done for me.

Draft. From notes. Grass and grains, slightly earthy hops. Slightly bitter taste. Meh, it’s ok.

tmoreau (2902) - 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.

Single bottle from Binny’s Build-a-Six rack. Nice copper IPA color with a thick, slightly orange-ish head. Slightly citrus and pine hop smell. Taste is up front with hop bitterness.After a thousand IPAs, it gets hard to say what makes one different from the other, but this does have a slightly larger malt backing, even if it does support a pretty standard hop balance. But as a year-round beer, you can’t expect too many non-repeatable variations.

[Bottle] Bright amber color with a quickly receding white head. Nose is of grassy and floral hops. Malty backbone features biscuit and caramel. Astringent hoppiness of grass and pine also make an appearance. Prickly carbonation. Very mediocre.

cbfobes (2677) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a dark copper/amber with a nice white head and lacing through out the glass, aroma has a decent citrus and hop touches to it, the flavor has a little sweeter than I’m used to for an IPA but it still works, nice smooth finish, decent.

Cloudy off brown pour tall dense light tan head with nice lacing. Fruity light citrus and grass aroma. Avg palate. Quite sweet subtle bitterness in the swallow. Easy to drink.
