3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-red pour with a light beige head. Aroma is pine hops. Taste is a weaker hop flavor that seems to be more of a pale ale to me. More malty than hops. OK lacing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid go-to IPA. Nice balance of malts and hops with a slight bite. Definitely a session IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Citrus stands out but otherwise a basic, slightly above average IPA. Its very drinkable and friendly to the average beer drinker.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12v oz bottle. Pours deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet fruity hops. a bit citric and a strong caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is much the same, though the caramel sweetness is even stronger. Still some sweet citric hoppiness and a lightly bitter finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour copper. Nose dank hop and earthy malt. Some metallic. Taste also dank and earthy, some bitter early. Noir all that appetizing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Pours a copper orange color with a light tan head. Slight hop aroma but nothing extreme. Medium mouthfeel. Caramel seed upfront with a hoppy presence in the end. Hoops don’t "bite" but rather are a slow build in the end. It’s ok, nothing special. Some lace. A bit soap flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House. This was definitely the best of my visit there. A little on the thin side in the body, but a solid version of the style.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can at Miller Park. Pours a dark amber color with a tan head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, pine, a little bready malt. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, caramel, some bitter pine hops, with a light bitter finish. A nice beer, but an underwhelming IPA.
