4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is big tropical fruit, orange, pine, brown sugar. Taste is very clean and bitter up front, with pine, orange peel, grapefruit. Sharp hops in the middle, good finish with slight malts appearing but remaining at second fiddle. Some say garlic & onion, and it might be there .. but it works. This beer bills itself as a one trick pony, focusing on big, bitter hops and nothing else. It just works. I wanted to let it warm up more, but it’s hard to keep from drinking it. It’s not perfect, but it’s well above average. Aroma and taste are both 8.5 for me, so I bumped it up one overall.

Pours a clear, radiant, light orange golden. Large frothy white head. Fruity hoppy, juicy, fresh aroma. Very. Nice. Citrus, orange, light grapefruit, little tropical, just enough malt character to balance. Medium body. Excellent bitterness. Flavor adds some resininess, pine. Nice sweetness to balance the bitter. Excellent beer.

very hoppy, very hoppy. refreshing, like walking out into a cold Wisconsin winter day. Citrus.
Taste is similar, but like walking into your favorite bar from the cold Wisconsin winter. satisfying, enjoyable. very hoppy yet somehow smooth. bit of a bitter finish.

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.

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.
