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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Standard recipe middle safe conservative inoffensive IPA. Too much lager for me too little pine/bitter hops. I could go to any Rock Bottom chain restaurant and find this.
Still drinkable so giving a C. Just not playing the same game as IPAs I now expect.
Bottle in Wisconsin.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a clear copper with a average white head. Aroma is more of a sweet malt and a herbal hop. Flavor is more of a dryer malt with again a very mild almost minor hop. It was not a sweet malt bomb like I thought it was going to be but in the world of IPA’s this would be way far down the list of ones to try. Really almost no noticeable hops are present.

bottle. Pours golden orange with a decent sized white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is piney hops, light citrus and a hint of malt at the end. Light to medium bodied with a short, piney finish. Not bad. I would definitely have another..

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Golden orange and clear appearance with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, floral notes. toasted grains, light toffee/caramel and light herbs. Similar flavor, moderate to heavy hop bitterness and minimal to light malt sweetness. Medium body with a crisp feel and a lingering, dry finish with a touch of alcohol. Decent, but kinda of hard to drink after a while.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
All the proceeds from this go to charity so the brewers might be good people but they sure do make some garbage beer. This one is perfectly clear orange w/ a small head of fine white bubbles. This claims to be an IPA but isn’t really terribly hoppy, esp. in the nose. I get a bit of caramel and grain and you can’t really tell there’s much of the way of hops in there until you get to the strong, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. I suppose this does provide balance to rather sticky, heavy sweetness but really that’s enough that nothing is going to save this beer. Needless to say, I am not a fan. I recommend you do not buy this.
