12 oz bottle. Orange in color and slightly hazy. A rocky off-white foam lingered a bit and left decent lacing. Citric hop aroma. Smells fresh, fruity, sweet and a little earthy. Medium body, slick and creamy with some carbonation. Starts off hoppy and piney with a solid malt profile in the middle giving it nice balance. Smooth flavor. Dry and bitter hop finish that lingers. Pretty good IPA.

From a 12 bottle shared at home. Pours a fairly clear dark copper with a thick off white head. Citrus hop aroma. Flavors of orange, grapefruit zest, some pine notes, and some hints of light caramel. Full, carbonated mouthfeel. Nice IPA.

Lots of sweetness, bitter hops. A bit on the heavy side for me, I prefer them a bit crisper. Mint, eughaluptus, pines.

Some good citrus aroma. pours amber. Taste of a malty caramel sweetness, then fades to the bitterness of the hop notes. Finishes smooth with a slight creamy mouth feel and a bitter bite on the very end. A solid IPA.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a creamy, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange, apricot, and other fruity hops over sweet caramel and lesser biscuity notes.. a little aspartame right on the back of the nose.. solid. The flavor found sweet caramel and a bit of bready malts at the core, with quasi-juicy pine and orangey bitterness around.. finished bitter and engaging, with citrus and pine leading. Light-medium bodied with a good feel through the palate.. moderate carbonation.. good stuff!
