COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a particular beer, and you can’t get a particular beer. In this region, American IPAs are few and far between. Enter #002. Flavorful, well-balanced, and best of all, right here. Cheers! “This IPA is all about a good malt foundation and a whole lotta’ hops. We’ve got Wisconsin-grown Centennial, Chinook and Columbus varieties in here, plus some west coast Cascade. This brew packs a symphony of flavor. I think you’ll enjoy it. Hey, if you’re hoppy, I’m hoppy.”

Awktoberfest (308) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pretty good all around with a good hop aroma and taste but kind of ends with a rough bitterness that is less than ideal... Good ipa for the new brewery... Worth a shot!... It will get better I'm sure ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dwm1034 (650) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from LG Pig into a snifter. Thin head / minor lacing. Nose is hoppy with sweet / caramel edge. Taste is sweet / bitter hops with bitter aftertaste. Smooth IPA....

Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Sample at the tap room. Clear pale orange-amber color with a medium white head that burns away steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and biscuit malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

TXBadger (1421) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, light fruit, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a floral character. Not bad.

BVery (6559) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle. Mostly clear light golden pour with a smaller white head. Some citrus and resin on the nose but it smells slightly stale. Medium palate, decent carbonation, and the hops are fairly well balanced.

wlajwl (3929) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Aroma is dank/grassy hops and light notes of citrus and fruit. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, fruit, a good hint of hop resin in the texture and a dry and mildly tangy finish.

About a 45-degree pour right off the truck. No chill haze and a pure golden color. First 2 sips were full of hops. Rest of the glass showed off the malty background and proved its balance. Very warming at the end at over 7%.

1FastSTi (3338) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours to a golden body with a thin white head. Aroma is light hops. The flavor is really balanced for an IPA. Like an English IPA. Medium body that is clean and easy drinking. Light actualized bitterness.

tmoreau (2470) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at Come Back In in Madison, WI. for their Maifest/Derby gathering. Showed a clear, golden color, with persistent, white head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was some tropical & floral hints, with white grapefruit, and a touch of resin. The taste was similar, with a light to medium body, good carbonation to project the flavor notes, and moderate hop bitterness. A decently drinkable IPA, so I passed on the Session IPA this time.

arkurzynski (1543) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2014
Amber pour. Nose is candied malt, lght pine and citrus. Degraded pine and citrus, almost acidic, with some malt backing. Lingering acidic citrus. Not particularly good.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
bytemesis (3312) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours crystal clear orange amber, medium creamy beige head, dissipates fairly slowly with good lacing left behind. Aroma is light pine, citrus, caramel, more pine. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter, sprucy, citrus, bread and pine. Medium body, medium soft carbonation. Also not bad, but lacking the juicy pop of the better IPAs.
