3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into shaker pint and shared with Tim at the condo. Amber orange body with a bone colored head. Good lacing. Aroma is boozy, with bread and caramel malt backed by citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is bitter citrus peel and pine with sugary sweetness. Medium-full body, oily texture, average-plus carbonation, boozy dry finish.

Picked up a four pack at the brewery earlier in the week. Very smooth for an imperial IPA. If your in Wisconsin this is a must have.

"Tropical fruit and candied grapefruit abound. Pretty bitter, but not overly so with some earthiness and pine and lots of sweetness. Full bodied. Now Iím confused. I thought unplugged beers were a thing of the past, and thumbprint was in the now, but this was fresh. Thanks to Heybeerman for the trade. I think this is the best iPa or pale Iíve had from them."

Great IPA, but not the best Iíve had. Certainly better than anything I had at New Glarus when I visited the brewery, but donít get too excited for this.

Bottle that I forgot about in my fridge for a while. Surprisingly still enjoyable! Clear amber pour, lots of white head. Nice hop nose, though perhaps a touch stale. Quite drinkable, dry finish - nice bitterness as well.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 From memory. Had this June 2011. Probably was the first double IPA outside of a beer festival and 90 min. Tasty but nothing amazing. Iíll rerate if they make it again and I can get some.
