3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Never had anything from these guys so I grabbed some of this when I was in WI last week. No date on the bottle which always worries me with this style, but I went agianst better judgement and grabbed some. Poured into a pint glass.
This beer pours a dark orange with a thick white head. Nose is pungent with orange, pine, lemon. Good moderately full mouth. The alcohol is noticeable in this one as the 7% comes with a bang. I wouldn’t want to down too many of these at once, and this is on a full stomach. Nice bitter character, wih a mild spicy profile. but there is a dry sweet biscuity character as well which makes this more English to me. I would think this is a nice hybrid between American and English IPA. Bitter and tasty, but plenty of sweetness and dry finish as well. A tasty beer that I am glad I picked up.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light copper color. Lots of head but very little lacing. Floral & pine aroma was promising but mouth-feel was thin with an odd after taste. Not a fave.

A fair IPA, nothing special, but good enough. Could use a little more kick in term of hoppiness and alcohol content. The folks at Potosi are close on this one.

Tap. Pale yellow pour with white head. Smells of hops and slight malt. Tastes a little bitter but not much for an ipa. Pretty good

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Discount Liquor/Waukesha. Pours golden copper with a nice head. Flavor falls a little short - it's missing something that I can't pinpoint. I find this typical of Wisconsin brewed IPA's in that they lack a robustness of flavor as found in a Stone IPA which unfortunately are not sold in Wiscy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Discount Waukesha. Pours a clear golden orange with a white head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has pine and fruits and caramel. Nice aromatic blend. Taste is of sweet caramel malts, fronted with spicy pine needles, some fresh fruits and some grapefruit. Light to medium bodied. Somewhat sticky. Finishes bittersweet in a good blend of both bitter and sweet, without a lot of length. Solid offering.

It poured a clear copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of moderate earthy hops. The taste was of bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish. Well done.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
January 2012. Bottle while in MN. Orange color with a white head. Nice hoppy aromas, but a little bit too light for my taste. Not enough character and too much sweet caramel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice amber pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus and resin. Good hop character. Nicely balanced by the malt bill. Caramel sweetness and good bitter hops. Wish it was a little lower ABV just so you could have a couple at a time.
