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.

Amber body with a small white head. The aroma is all malt, lots of caramel, toffee, and buscuit. There is just a hint of floral hops. The flavor is similar, mostly sweet. I assume this is somewhat old, should probably rate again.

On tap at the brewery. Pleasant floral aroma. Medium bitterness from the hops and a good hop flavor. The bitterness does not linger though like some IPAs. Tastes better on tap than from a bottle. The best brewery tour we have been on.

Amber. Faint hop aroma. Caramelly malt is forefront. Balanced by grassy and slightly resinous hops. Decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint Can. Copper with small off white head. Aroma of resinous and pine hops with some malt notes. Medium/full body, medium/heavy hop bitterness with a nice creaminess, but not much of a malt backbone.

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!

High sweetness, lacking in hops. Not too impressed with this one. Just OK.

Bottle at MoJo’s restaurant in Elkhorn....pours a bright orange with thin head. Bitter not really hoppy nose or taste. Mediocre IPA....

bookman10 (663) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours a copper-gold with massive head (almost too much so). Aroma is of grass, grain, malt--where are the hops? Flavor is very grassy, with malt and very little in the way of hops--none of the characteristic citrus or piney bitterness. A disappointment.

asedzie (617) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Can. Pours amber brown with creamy off-white head. Nose is light but pleasant - mild fruitiness and just a bit of floral hops. Flavor is lightly sweet, bready maltiness followed by a good dose of lasting bitterness and some hop resin aftertaste. I think I see what MKE was going for here - a strong bitter beer - and it drinks like a strong pale ale or perhaps a burton ale, and would be quite good for an American strong ale but doesn’t hold up against the style profile for most IPAs adopted by U.S. brewers at this moment.

Bottle. Slightly hazy reddish brown with a big creamy head and a sweet, resiny aroma. Doughy malt taste with a floral hop bitterness. Medium bodied and a bit slick on the palate with a very light carbonation. Short, bitter finish that wraps this one up nicely. Very good.
