Poured a clear golden amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of bread, pine, earthiness and a hint of citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, pine and light grapefruit with a smooth dry lingering moderately bitter finish.

On draft at the old fashioned. Citra hop nose, clear golden appearance. Comes in clean and finishes with a metallic bitterness. Good for one drink only world not buy a sixer.

beerbaaron (1353) - Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Draft at brewpub. Orange amber with medium+ white head, lasting with good lace. Fruity, citrus, soft caramel to balance. Lighter medium body. Moderate bitterness. Clean. Comes together seamlessly. Very pleasant and easy going.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a nice cold color with a medium white head. Nice aroma of citrus, light malt, some piney hops. Taste is much the same........very smooth and drinkable.

TheAlum (5950) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Wausau, WI). Pours a nice hazy amber hue, a bit dulled, firmer haze in the body, dull amber orange glow on the bottom and edges. A frothy whitish head atop stays as an ok layer, laces small. Aromas show citrusy grapefruit, lemon, and even lime. Florals meet a bit of lemon, tart citrus, and earth. Gentle bready and clean grainy malt element is overrun by a richer citrus rind hopping. Pretty lively and fresh. Initial is lighter end of the fold, cool and collected with a firm hopping up front. Bitter citrus rind of grapefruit, lemon, grapefruit juice, a touch of gumball. Some gentle melon, florals are firm. Middle is still quite dry and bitter, a bit of bready malt pokes through. Clean and grainy. Backend is firmly bitter, big rind and florals. Firm rind presence, florals, Amarillo and bigger grapefruit bomb appeal. Dry and bitter, mellow lighter body makes this pretty drinkable, tasty and a good fresh and fairly complex hopping. Really dug this. Nose could use a touch more but overall, the beer itself is quite nice.

Enjoyed a cold pint at the Wausau brewpub. Everything about this IPA is right on target: pleasant citrus aroma, beautiful to look at, and layers of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness in the taste. Stop by and try one when in the middle of Wisconsin.

BVery (6984) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2011
On tab at the brewpub in Wausau, WI. Golden yellow pour with a white head. Pine hop and lemon on the nose. Smooth, slightly carbonated palate. Great taste - pine hop, citrus, and extremely well balanced. Just very well done. Pairs great with the pizza.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2011
On tap at Red Eye. Poured crystal-clear lighter orange with a sticky white head.. looked very good in the glass. The aroma picked up juicy pine and grapefruit over a sweet caramel base.. fairly simple, but entirely enjoyable! The flavor was sweet as expected, but there was a great deal of delicious (and refreshing) fresh pine and citrus bitterness around.. juicy, with resiny bitterness sticking around a while on the finish. Medium-bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. just excellent stuff!

cbfobes (2349) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 19, 2011
On tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, pours a hazy orange with a thin head and some lacing, hoppy aroma with some tropical fruit notes, the flavor has a nice balance between the hops and the malt with some grapefruit in the finish, yum.

Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma has notes of pine, some caramel, touch of orange. Taste is piny bitter, some citrus sweet leading into caramel, finishing with a spice and pine bitter finish. Pretty good, wish it was this same beer with less sweetness, the hop character has good qualities.
