4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Heavy aroma of pine, citrus, and fresh hops. Nice orange gold, with thick white head that stands strong. Nice hoppy pine, with some bitterness in front, balanced well with sweet caramel malt. Finishes with the sweetness of the malt momentarily, then the bitterness from the hops comes in but it is not over powering. Has a nice alcohol hum to it at the end also that warms you up. Not over the top like some double ipaís.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is clear golden amber with a bubbly off white head. Nose is hop forward, grapefruit and citrus, a touch sticky, assertive malt backbone with fresh grain. Taste is so hop forward, a touch if sticky resignous hops, strong grapefruit, virtually no bitterness. Carb is a spot light, medium body and fairly dry finish.

12oz, I guess Iím a NG Homer (Thanks MBB for this beer btw) but this beer would fall short of my expectations, it makes nothing special for an IIPA just your run of the mill.. the english malt is a nice touch but still falls short of what is out there.

Bottle. Pours golden with medium head. Big flowery hop nose, some resiny pine notes. Flavor is rich malt laced with powerful sticky fresh hop flavors - bursts of crushed pine needles, sharp citrus and juicy peach all surrounded by a lively bitterness and just a little alcohol astringency. Absolutely great wisconsin IPA - with local Wisconsin hops!! - I bet this could go head to head with pliny and win.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly hazy golden-orange body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Orange, grapefruit, perfumey citrus and floral notes, light malt creeing in. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, a little too sweet in the finish which lingers a bit.

Impressive bitterness balanced with sweet fruitiness, especially grapefruit. Decent double IPA, better than expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Not one of NGs better beers. Opaque darker gold pour. Decent head an lacing. Nose and taste are citrus, hops, some malt but not enough. There are just too many other better choices out there but this will do in a pinch.

Pours a lighter copper with a white h2ad. Aroma is pine and earthy sweetness. Taste is slightly bitter. Very sweet and candyish body. Nice double IPA.

What a great beer, everything you would look for in a well balanced double IPA. a great west coast style IPA from the heart of America. this should be a year round beer. I would by it (if it was available in PA) by the keg. reminds me of a fuller bodied sculpin.
