A copper colored beer, with a hint of carbonation and little head. Pleasant aroma of fruits. At first taste amalgamation of fruit and a bit of spices. Finishes smooth with fruity overtones, but still maintains overtone of spices. Something feels a bit dead at the end of each sip however. What does a Wisconsin style IPA even mean? I donít know, I guess I donít dig the bitter nature of this ale, for it certainly lives up to its name, and I donít think that is necessarily a good thing.

The beer I had was a year old, so take this review for what itís 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.

Bottle in trade. Pours orange with white head. Aroma is mild hops, but strong malt sweetness. Taste is light, mild bitterness, sweet finish. Not my idea of an ipa.

Reviewed from notes: Pours a nice lighter amber color with white head. Intense citrus and pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice bite.
