3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly hazed dark golden color. Moderate off-white head that settles rather quickly to a thin lid of small bubbles and a few isles of lace. Mild green grassy hops and earthy malt. I catch a touch of orange soap as well. Nice feel to this one. lightly oily and slick with just enough zip to keep it alive. LIght malt sweetness with some citric zest. Middle is full of citrus and light pine. A bit sharp and unforgiving in flavor. Perhaps a touch thin in the malt for my tastes. Linger is nice with a bit of malt and toffee.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light amber body with a beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet orange, floral and earthy. Flavor is pine, grapefruit, lemon and light malt. Medium body, slick texture. Finishes somewhat abrupt and bitter. A lighter IPA than I am used to but seemed to have a nice balance which made it very drinkable.

Very fresh piney aroma, great job of nailing down that almost perfect IPA aroma, Taste is more caramelly then you would expect ,a little sweet too, but still plenty of piney hops flavor to give it a rich IPA balance toward hops,nice finishing bitterness too,actually a little different then many standard IPA’s in a good way . Great Job from this little Wisconsin Brewer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a medium golden with a white foamy head.
Aroma is musty floral hop. popcorn, grainy malt.
Flavour is grainy/corn like pale malt, hop is grassy.
Not unpleasant. Certainly different from a lot of IPA’s that I’ve had recently.

Wow, I was very impressed with this beer! Even after just opening, this beer’s aroma wafted out of the bottled, emanating the wonderful hoppy, aroma characteristic of the style.
Upon tasting, this beer was well balanced and easy on the palate, yet complex in flavor. It had notes of citrus and herbs and a slight bite.
Not only is it a very drinkable beer, but it is also very affordable and a great choice if you are looking for a good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is medium golden with a lot of sediment in suspension. Aroma is of fresh hops and malt. Very nice aroma. Flavor begins with a strong burst of hops mellowing out to more malt and then finishing with slight notes of caramel. Good brew. Well blended. Has a lot of distinct flavors. Would buy again.

Bottle pours a particulate laden hazed straw yellow with a monster head that looks like it will linger and cling; head becomes like whipped cream on a late. Were it not for all the floaters, the appearance score would be perfect. The aroma is citrus hops with some sweetness. The flavor is of sweet malt foundation with some grapefruit and pine to balance it out. The palate is creamy and the carbonation restrained. Overall, this is another fine beer from these guys!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz from Zipps in Minneapolis, MN. Pour is cloudy, hazy yellow gold with a solid rocky 2 inch head. Visible floating particulates, nice unfiltered look. Aroma of fresh bitter hops. Smells like fresh hay. Taste is more hoppy than expected, nice soft bitterness and earthiness. Palate is chewy, and fits the flavors nicely. Bitterness lasts. I really liked this one, good IPA.
