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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Slightly foggy yellow pour, some hops aroma and little head. Flavor was not you usual IPA, funky farmhouse flavor, bitter hops and finished fruity and dry. Decent, and could see this one growing on me as I finished the glass.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared by Eric. Aroma is bitter grass, some citrus, and caramel malt. Pours light amber with a small white head. Taste is bitter grass, some garden weeds, and a stale biscuit malt. Mouthfeel was bitter and dry despite all the malt taste. All in all, this had the makings of an inbalanced and old IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light yellow with a good head. Nose quite hoppy, plenty of pine, some malty sweetness. Flavor is bracingly hoppy and spicy, big pine, decent malts for balance. A bit thin, but still quite nice.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A resinous pine-forward IPA with a pronounced sugary-sweet backside. Not a quaffer because it leaves a residual sweetness in your mouth instead of an inviting dryness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 On tap at the Muddy Pig. The pour is yellowish, marginally cloudy orange. Aromas are odd but interesting: butterscotch, vanilla and mint with a touch of bready malt. Tastes of some acidic citrus - apricot, orange - with a little floral character. Kind of sours a little as it warms; certainly best consumed very cold.

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

Courtesy Beerlando, I think. Slightly cloudy straw color, thin broken white head. Spicy phenols, moderate hop aroma, but light overall for an IPA. Pretty mild hop taste, more grassy in character. Just ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy yellow orange with a thick fluffy white was. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus hops. Flavor is lightly bitter, crisp, citrus hops. Clean easy drinker. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
