Draft at Eulogy. Poured a dark amber with a big pillowy white head that left lots of lace. Big dry hop flavors. Bigger than most IPAs but not quite a double. Some grassy ginger notes. Lots of pine resin. Burned citrus pith. Darker color suggests some malt but not much malt flavor is present. Nice palate. Full taste. Dry finish.

Can shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours amber with a thin head. Nose is onion and garlic hops, with sharp alcohol and sweet malt. Taste is...whoa...dirt and sticky, dank hops, onions and sweet malt. It’s thinnish, nicely carbonated and slick. Disappointed.

Pours a beige color. Smell is citrus and hops. Taste is hops, bitter, citrus, more bitter. Overall a pretty good beer.

Pours a translucent copper with a thick fluffy head. Crazy lacing on this one. Aroma is great, hop attack, citrus all the way. Taste is a bit too malty but it's still pretty good. I'm glad I got to try this but it's not a regular ipa for me.

Tap at Fire House in Eau Claire. Amazing beer! Grapefruit and resin. So full on aroma and flavor. Just spectacular.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft… Clear dirty-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Great retention and then there’s lots of thick lacework left behind, clinging tightly to the sides of my glass. The nose offers grapefruit, passionfruit and resiny pine. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is bitter with a nice caramel malt backbone – some residual sweetness makes a brief appearance, but is then quickly decimated by bitter, rindy, pithy hops. Lengthy, tongue-numbing, medium bitter finish.

Straddles the line between IPA and DIPA....Huge hoppy piney nose. Palate is extremely bitter with some resinous character. Finish is bitter and dry and quick. I liked this a lot because it was hugely hoppy without being too heavy or sweet. Big as a DIPA, drinking characteristics of a IPA. WIN.
