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.

Bottle, purchased at the pub. Pours a hazy copper amber with noticeable effervescence. Head is thin, off-white and leaves thing lines and dots of laing. Aroma is rich, spicy with some hints of orange citrus. Flavor is soapy, citrus with some pine. Finishes spicily bitter. Medium bodied with a moderate lingering bitterness.

Ughsmash (7158) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Bottled. Poured hazy, rich amber with a dense cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, juicy oranges and grapefruit over caramel and bready notes.. very, very, very sweet, but I was feeling the candied aspect. The flavor found sweet caramel and orange meat at the core, with orange peel and floral bitterness around.. lots of residual sugars on the back.. again a lot like moderately hopped-up candy. Medium-bodied and sweeter than it needed to be on the palate.. very easy to drink, with a decent flow across the palate.. Iíd probably have another.

Iím slowly starting to become a big fan of IPAs. Milwaukee Brewing Companyís is a good one. Smooth with good hops.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy amber color with a fluffy white head and some lacing. Arome is simply floral hops and caramel malts, but not strong. Flavor is more malty than hoppy, but has a dry finish. Medium body with just the right amount of carbonation. Easy to drink, but not very memorable.

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.

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 itís got some nice spicy and fruity hop character.

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

Nero55 (751) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2014
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.

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy light amber with a huge fluffy off white head. Light citrus/herbal hopping on the nose and a bit of lightly toasted malt. Balanced. Taste is roughly the same, with a hint of nuttiness. A touch of mineral, and not much hoppiness, even through the finish. Light bodied, a little slick, and nice carbonation. Pretty subtle, but very balanced.

This is a nice IPA that tastes and drinks pretty good but doesnít have anything particularly compelling going on in the aroma. The texture is a high point, nice and creamy w/ gentle carbonation. Overall, itís forgettable but Iíd say itís better than most forgettable beers.

Single bottle from Binnyís 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 canít expect too many non-repeatable variations.
