12oz bottle from jmagnus off my charity box win from his generosity. Poured an uglier lightly muddied apple cider amber body with a smaller frothy white head. Aroma of green apple skins, wet bread, older resiny hop cones, rotting citrus. Medium to slightly thicker bodied with average carboantion and a lingering flavor on the aftertaste. Flavor of breads, caramel, rotting citrus meat, older hop cones, touch of cardboard for some reason and a hint of tea. Decent overall but not blown away. Still big thanks to Josh for the hookup on this one.

Great orange-amber color with a light thick head. Aroma & flavor are very bitter with a hint of grapefruit. Great choice!!

Pretty good. Pitted nice cloudy brownish orange with a very big frothy white head. Very very bitter. Lots of grapefruit flavor. Very nice IPA.

Not bad. Better out of the bottle than a glass. Golden in color with a nice white head with mild lacing. Bitter on the tongue. Taste of lemon lime with a dry and bitter finish. Almost peachy more of an east coast IPA.

On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Deep golden with a dense head (almost nitro in character). Densely vegetal hop character, slightly cheesy even, very oily.

Really great beer. Great floral aroma, mix of citrus and resin hops. Powerful flavor of citrus and pine with a bitter and slightly acidic finish. Great color and slightly off white head. Fantastic stuff.

12 oz bottle. (Riley’s) Madison, WI.
Cloudy yellow golden colour with a big fluffy off-white head. Citrus, pine, sweat, mild bitterness, mild sweetness in a light but fresh aroma. Citrus, grapefruit, moderate bitterness and malty sweetness in the flavour. Very drinkable.

Orange pour white head. Spicy, resinous hops. Wish I knew what the hop was since the label says it’s a SMaSH beer.
