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.”

Ataraxia (369) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Clear pinkish-gold color, thin white head. Grapefruit, citrus, sweet caramel malt, and hay. Bitter hops and sweet malt blend together well. Crisp, clean, and the right amount of carbonation. Dry and bitter finish, with a small alcohol presence.

Pretty good IPA. Resiny hops a mix of pine and sweet citrus. Tastes very fresh.

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%.

wlajwl (3875) - 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.

Skyview (5208) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2013
On draught at the new Wisconsin Brewing Company tap room in Verona, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light citrus and grassy hop profile and a touch of earthy herbs. Taste is medium bodied, plenty of earthy and grassy hop bitterness that hides much of the caramel malt. Finish is semi-dry, some lingering bitterness with a hint of light caramel malt. Tongue shocker scale- three to four minutes.

twindadplus2 (591) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottled. Coppery amber color with a medium foamy head. Flowery, resiny hop aroma with a bit of toffee malt. Taste is herbal, medicinal bitterness up front with a fade of sweet malt at the end. Finish is crisp herbal hops and a long dry medicinal bitterness. Medium bodied with a decent tingly carbonation level. I liked this one.

TXBadger (1381) - 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.

cbfobes (2293) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear bright gold with a thin head and lots of carbonation bubbles in the glass, aroma is of slight citrus with a little bit of tropical fruit, the session ironically has more nose than this one, the flavor has a nice crisp front end with some citrus and bitterness in the finish, nice mouthfeel for the most part, pretty amazing this came from Kirby, I was kind of expecting a malt bomb with hops just tossed in, also surprised to see this at 7.1%, would have expected him to brew something around the 6 mark, not bad.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2013
12oz bottle. Filtered orange-tan body. Thin, off-white head. Middle of the road, but well done IPA. The hops are there, but not really that bold, or new school...classical American IPA. Some grapefruit, citrus tones. Easy drinking despite the big ABV.

bytemesis (3152) - 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.
