Thanks to Cap. Cougar for this.This could be my new every day IPA if I can get it.Great hoppy floral citrusy nose and the taste was just like I was hoping.A fine balance of hops and bitterness with not a strong smackdown but smooth and pleasant.Nice finish on this.Thanks Tom.

To the venerable Facto: A decent IPA...hops, citrus, and pine aroma and flavors...Could definitely use more hops, but overall, a nice brew...And what the hell are you trying to say here, Facto? Thanks for the beer! :P

Thanks to MrFacto for this Wisconsin IPA!
Golden amber with just a bit of haze under an average off white head that sticks to the sides of the glass.
Strong inviting aroma of fresh, citrusy hops.
This delivers smoothly with a wonderful balance of flavors that play back and forth between the malt and the bitter hoppiness. Medium body in this one before fading off into a long bitter finish.

Attractive deep golden. Big orangey citrus aroma-very attractive. Centennials for sure, maybe a touch of cascades as well. Very reminiscent of SNCA. Solid bitterness with a good hop flavor as well. Malt is solid. But this is really well made and an excellent IPA. Thanks to JPDIPSO for the gift!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 Absolutely wonderful full hop grapefriut aroma, amber orange color, nice head, full hop slightly sweetcitrus taste, best hop aftertaste ever. If your a true hophead , and could care less about any malt flavor this is your brew. An instant hit with anyone I get to try it. Has been responsible for many people getting off the macro beer wagon. If you can get to the Tyranena Brewery tasting room and try it there, its a 5.0 rating.

Pours a light yellow, small white head. Aroma of lemons, and pine needles. Flavor is very hoppy, acidic, with notes of pine/citrus hops, bitter, and alcohol. Palte is a litttle thin. Overall a nice brew.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Gold color with a thin head. Very piney aroma. Tastes like hopped Pine-Sol. It also had a lot of chunky sediment. A bit oily. Not too good. Re-rate 10/17/07. Had to try this again and I really wanted to like it better, but I stand by my prior statements.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
a tan mixing with yellow color w/ very light head and little carbonation.. the aroma was of malt hopps and light citrus.. the palate was the best part, very creamy and rich in the mouth. The flavor was that of a decent IPA w/ a hoppy citris taste w/ hints of some malt.. I again dont’ really like IPA’s but this wasn’t bad. Overall I’d get a non IPA

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2006 Copper colored, translucent, very small white head transverses the glass. Aroma is grapefruit slightly grassy, with slight amounts of sweetness. Flavor is citrusy (grapefruit) but not terribly bitter. Tart but not bitter finish. Thanks John
