COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our favorite styles, this ale is a hop explosion. Light in color, heavily hopped in the kettle as well as conditioned with several unique hop varieties. This creates a beautiful floral/citrusy nose which is balanced well by a smooth and full finish.

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.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a hazy yellow with a medium sized white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a touch sweet & a little faint but decidedly hop forward, grassy & weedy like mowing through an overgrown patch. Itís got some nice citrus fruitiness as well.

The flavor is nice enough, pushing the envelope as far as enjoyable bitterness but staying within the threshold for sure. Itís got a nice grassy & fruit forward happiness. The beer does have a touch more sweetness than I would like but again that aspect is pushing the envelope without really going outside of what I find enjoyable in an IPA.

Enjoyable enough thatís for sure.

Hazed orange, hop haze,yeast haze. Some light frothy head. Strong citrus grassy aroma. Seems a lot like some noble hops alot character like a grassy skunky pilsner. Full mouth foamy feel, lot of toasted pale malts with some sweetness. Citrus tart. Pretty dry toasty finish. Strong citrus grassy hops and bitter/tartness. Probably too much citrus/grassy for my kind of ipa I go for.

Aroma is pine, spices/vegetables and a hint of citrus. The flavor is citrus, light grapefruit, fruit, spices, malts, mild EIPA qualities and a slightly bitter/tangy finish.

Actually thought this was pretty good...needs a little less malt and more hops but thats just my opinion...still a very drinkable beer.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Clear gold pour with a 2 finger, soapy off white head, a high effervescence and lots of fairly large tan floaties, resulting in a kinda neat, but gross looking boiling cauldron of protein flecks. Aroma is fruity and citrus with a big hop acid sharpness and a little sweet and toasty malt. Flavor is fruity and floral up front followed by sweet malt Juicyfruit Gum, grapefruit, light medicinal notes and a lingering citrus note to the finish. Medium body, juicy entry leading immediately to a borderline astringent feel with a medium to heavy and somewhat sharp carbonation that fades away pretty quickly due to that oddly high effervescence. Not bad.

\Yellow pour with white head and lace.. Sweet malt and light resiny hop aroma. Dry maltiness with a bready flavor. A decent resiny bitter finish. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy.

From River Falls WI, and this is the town my in-laws are from. This is a great, stay true IPA. Pours a hazy gold and has that right amount of hop, with a touch of pine. Dry and crisp at the end. Cheers!

Solid drinkable IPA. Cloudy pour. Well balanced between malts and hops, the latter not particularly defined in pine citrus or resin. Light bitterness as well. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
