3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle with no date on the bottle, so Iím not sure how old this is. Picked it up on a recent trip to the ísconsin. Poured into a pint glass.
Pours a clear pale orange with a moderately thick white head on top. Big citrusy nose that is inviting me to partake. Orange, lemon, floral tones - nice refreshing nose. The mouth is crisp, yet creamy. A little sharp, but smooth on the back end. Nice big citrus flavors greet me with sweet tangerine, orange rind, lemon zest. Bitterness is moderate and accessible. This is a great IPA for novices and geeks alike. I wasnít expecting a lot, but this surprised me. I would grab this again for sure.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - has a hazy yellow appearance. The overload of carbonation seems to be causing this. It has a thick head to it with some lacing. This one is definitely different than other IPAs. It seems more like lager with a hopped up taste to it. The body is light to medium and the palate is lacking.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Clear golden yellow color, thick white head, delicate lacing. Aroma of pine and pineapple. Taste has pine and tropical fruit in a bit of an odd combo that grows on you.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12-oz. Thanks, B! Pours a murky burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy whitish head that hangs around for a while, leaving lots of eggy lace. Mild grapefruit and caramel nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb, and the requisite toast, caramel, and grapefruit. Pretty run of the mill IPA, despite having no major flaws.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy, golden yellow. Some floral and hop aromas. Flavor is full of hop bitterness, with not much else to balance. Not the greatest IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden pour from bottle with head that leaves decent lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Sweet, bready, and a grassiness all coming out. Not as bitter as I expected, but I am ok with that. Citrus/Pine connotations. Overall another great offering from Rush River!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow and cloudy; lots of floating sediment. Big citrusy hops aroma. Big floral/citrus hops on the front and some pleasant bisquity malt balancing it out. Medium body. I have a cold so my senses are dulled so Iíd like to try this again at a later date, but I really like this one. One of the best IPAís Iíve had.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Tripplebrew. Notch on label has APR, Wk 2. Used a shaker. Massive head and retention. ( spider web lacing ) Nose of malt and citrus hop. The malt gives it a biscuit, dough like quality. This is on the sweeter side for an IPA. And I like that attribute. This could be an everyday drinker, (if I lived in Wisconsin.) Nice.
