4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Paul’s July 2013 tasting. Pours a light hazy body. Aroma is super fresh pine and citrus. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of citric hops, citrus fruits, lots of pine, resin and some floral character. Very light malt base smooths out the finish making this a refreshing, drinkable double IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mostly clear golden color and topped by a nice thick off-white colored head of foam. The aroma is bursting with citrus fruits and hops atop a backbone of toasted bread malts. The flavor follows suit with the citrus fruit including orange and grapefruit, and balanced out nicely by the toasted malts. The body is nice and full with ample carbonation and hop bitterness that leads to a slight warming finish. As the beer warms up it starts to get a touch boozy, but overall a solid ipa from one of my favorite breweries.

There is so much to like about New Glarus IIPA. It is a lush hop bomb with amazing balance. Pine is most prominent but complexity abounds. Hops are the focus with alcohol and malt adding depth.

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 ipa’s.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz, I guess I’m 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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
