On tap at the brewpub, pours a dark clear amber with a thin white head, the aroma was grassy with some pine and fruit coming through, the flavor had more of a fruity front with a strange malty finish, there was something a little off in the finish, not terrible by any means.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Vintage brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy copper amber colored brew with a creamy beige head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of medicinal English dry hops, a hint of nugget hops and toasted caramel malt. Taste is where this wet hop really shines! Magnum hops and some grassy hop character stands out with a multi-grain malt base. Finish has a mild and lingering bitterness, some lingering grassy hop aftertaste with roasted caramel malt flavors.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours reddish amber with a thin ring of off-white head. Very malty nose, and not very hop-forward at all--more sweet and bready. Taste is real malty and sweet, with minimal hopping and a weird milky note. Overall it’s pleasant, but unremarkable, and doesn’t exactly fit in the "truth in advertising" category. Where are the hops?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled @ GLBF 2011. Seems more English than APA, with a lot of malt piling up on top of a piney, mildly citric finish. The malts are grainy and pretty nice, but more hops are needed on the finish to tighten up the brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Just a standard wet hopped pale ale. It isn’t that bitter but rather more focused on flavor ,but I think they could have used a different variety.
