12 oz. bottle straight from WI. Dark golden/ light amber color. Smells like sweet caramel & nutty malts, with some bitter, piney hops. Tastes almost the same, too. A little more bitter, esp. in the finish. Not bad, just not my favorite IPA style.

Poured from the bottle of a six pack, copper color with foamy collar. I have found that buying beer without the alcohol level posted on the label to be a 50/50 proposition, this time to the bad because I wouldn’t have purchased a 5.75% for a premium price. The fact that someone took the time to write this great story on the label but omitted the ABV seems shady. As far as the commercial deScription; to say this beer is "intensely bitter" & has "mighty hop flavor" are an overstatement. It’s good beer, is bitter, has good hop flavor, and is very drinkable, but let’s not get crazy with the adjectives, especially considering the other IPA,s that come out of Wisconsin at the same price.

Decent iPad. Heavily malty notes with some hippiness in the finish. Smells malty and hoppy. Pours copper with a 2 finger thick reddish tan head. Had at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ThirstyBird (2252) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Pours a clear copper color with a light tan head. The smell is earthy malt, spice, citrus. The taste is as it smells, madly, dry ending with bitterness. Light/medium body and slightly prickly carbonation.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2015
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aromas are a notable grapefruit citrus with secondary notes of grain, herbs, and a light caramel late. It pours an oily orange-amber with a dense, fuzzy head, retaining a medium ring, splotchy surface, and leaving an abundant, sheet lace. The taste is a medium high bitter and a medium / medium-light sweet. The medium bodied, oily beer goes down with a soft fuzz for carbonation. Grapefruit and grass are the overwhelming and dominant flavors on the palate and it has a crisp, grass finish with a bitter grapefruit lingering as well as some pine and bitter herb.

The beer I had was a year old, so take this review for what it’s worth. Very very bitter and little other discernible taste.
