Pros: Solid appearance with an alluring color and nicely layered foam.

Cons: Hop character is apparent, but needs more brightness and pungency. Too herbal and medicinal for my liking, not citrusy enough. No malt character and a thin body. Just another IPA.

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 its worth. Very very bitter and little other discernible taste.

Draft in Wisconsin, uncle mikes highway pub. Expecting more bitterness, fairly standard IPA, nothing extraordinary despite the cool name.

Bottled. Nice slightly browned-orange in color with a medium-sized off-white head. Moderate pine aroma with orange zest and a vanilla malt backbone. Moderate bitterness that grows slightly in intensity bringing forth notes of rich leather and grapefruit flesh. Finish has a slightly sweet uptick with flavors of sugared lemon drops and green tea. As it warms, the sweet notes become more pronounced and flavors of dates and raisins become apparent within the rich malt base. Solid and left me wanting more.
