As far as IPAs go, this is one of the best we have had outside of Colorado. You can only find it in Wisconsin, but it is worth the drive. The owners are very enthusiastic about their beers and were some of the friendliest people we have come across! Get it if you can

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.

Flowery aroma. Taste starts with a bready/malty sweetness, quickly followed by a burst of citrus and a then a bunch of pine that lingers into the aftertaste.

Hazy pale yellow with foamy white head / Bright nose of lemon, other citrus, cut pine, and weed / Medium body, a hint thin, chewy, good biting hops with some sweetness and bitter finish / Flavors of cut pine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, resin, and candied sugar / Just a mild body flaw, but otherwise excellent.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is heavily bitter. Pine resin with grapefruit and citrus. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome. This could be an everyday drinker for me.

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.

Tried this at sugar maple last night. Smooth, but bitter taste. Very hoppy so be ready for it.

As far as IPAs go, this is one of the best I have had. You can only find it in Wisconsin (thankfully i live in WI)! The owners are very enthusiastic about their beers and were some of the friendliest people we have come across!

Bottle thanks to Chi, brought back from WI. Pour is a light hazy burnt orange, with a really dense slightly off white head that lasts and lasts, leaving beautiful lacing in its wake. Aroma is somewhat muted by this dense cap of foam, but when it’s released, it’s really, really nice. Huge grapefruit pitch, lots of resiny pine, floral and herbal notes. Grassy, without being vegetal. Just a massive amount of citrus blasts out of the glass with each swirl. Taste is more piney, with just a touch of lightly caramelized malt backing, but really not much else but hops. Long bitter finish, nice carbonation level. Really one of the better IPA’s I have had in a long time! Thanks again Chi!
