This American IPA is brewed with nothing but base malt and the highest alpha acid hops available. Special release, pilot batch brewed in early summer, and served on tap at the brewery in July 2010.

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.

12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI (July 2016), served a bit above fridge temperature from a Fitgerís pint glass. Pours very pale gold, lightly hazy and faintly oily, with an enormous head of meringue that takes forever to dissipate and leaves fine lace all the way down...citrus - grapefruit and tangerine - dominates a strong nose that also hints at honey and cedar...flavor is lusciously sweet and syrupy at the front - but the sugariness of real fruit, very fresh - and becomes sharper and sharper towards a fairly stinging finish...this has got to have one of the best mouthfeels of any IPA or APA Iíve had recently, itís so obviously real and unfiltered, and as it warms it takes on a certain complexity between the sweet fresh fruits, a light honey glaze, and the sharpness and oiliness of fresh hops...no real alcohol presence; perhaps just a touch too thick but itís very hard to think of anything else that I donít like about this. Not one I had any real expectations for but itís a killer. Now as Iím finishing the glass - and supremely sorry that I just got this in a mix-a-six instead of a whole six-pack - Iím going to have to bump it up a couple of notches, because this is the best IPA Iíve ever had,

Kind of a West Coast IPA - huge hop bitterness with resin flavor, not a lot in the malt department. Good fine carbonation. Nice hop aroma. Thick, tight off-white head, that slowly settles. Good drinking beer.

This beer smells of citrus hops, peppery, sprucey pine notes . Color is golden yellow with thin layer of foam which dissipates quickly. As the name implies, the taste of this beer is hop whoopiní yet enjoyable with hop notes beginning to end. Hop whoopiní is smooth on the palate with mild pleasant oiliness. Overall, an excellent hop forward IPA.

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.

jstraw (1965) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2013
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.
