In 1842, the first hop farms appeared in Sauk County. The heart of the hops boom was in Kilbourn City (now Wisconsin Dells).This medium-bodied amber ale has a pleasant hoppy flavor & aroma. Locally grown hops are harvested from Brownie Zinke’s Hop Farm & are used to create this one-of-a-kind ale.

10 Pointer Sampler 6/25/14 (Moosejaw)-Pours amber with a small head. Aroma of hops, malt, and citrus. Taste of the same with more hops. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and one of the better one so far.

S nice hoppy beer. Strong vegetal hop presence. Weeds. Not much of a malt backbone. This one is all about the hops

A smooth ale with a good amount of hops. Leaves the pallet thriving for more. A definite recommended ale.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed last summer as my family and I were driving through the Dells. At the brewpub. Into a pint glass. The appearance has a hazy pale orange /brown body with a film of a white head that gently dies leaving some nice clingy lacing in rings. The smell has the hops up front strong all the way unto the end of the drink, light malts as it warms. The taste is balanced pretty well through the hops and the malts. On the palate, she sits about a medium on the body, is slightly sessionable, and has a carbonation that seems to be spot on for the style and for me. Overall, what a nice APA, if youre in the Dells and are lookin’ for a nice APA don’t pass up on this, I definitely would have it again.

Seems a lot of people rated this one fairly high and maybe I just got a bad sampler draft, but I really didn’t care for this one. Pours a cloudy medium amber color with average head. There is the scent of some hops lingering over the beer. The taste is hoppy as well but it seemed rather watery. There was a vast difference in the texture. Out of the 10 samples I tried, this was my least favorite, but like I said maybe I just got a bad draft.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours amber with a ring of white head. Nose is toast and orange marmalade and herbal hops. Taste is real malty, bready, and dry, with herbal and grassy hops that impart a mild bitterness through the finish. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Tasted more like a bitter.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a tab head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of earthy grain with a light backing pine hops. Flavor has more hops with a pine note up front and resin in the finish backed by earthy grains.
