TheAlum (7054) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Sampled on tap at the brewpub (Madison, WI). Pours a nice glowing amber hue, some fiery orange, ok haze, a frothy offwhite head dies to a thicker ring, a-ok lacing. Aromas are a moderate bouquet of grapefruit and florals, Amarillo gumball and lemon head/rind elements come into focus with bready and biscuity malts, a touch of sweeter toffee. By the book, Amarillo dominant. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a bit lighter, some moderate bitterness of citrusy and floral hops, that telltale gumball and lemon sweetness from Amarillo comes into play. A fairly tame IPA, still tasty with good balance for the style. A lot of Amarillo, which I find to be a flavorful hop but not an intense of complex hop. A-ok for a local less lauded IPA. Finish is decent bitterness, lingering pale and toffee malts

A wonderful IPA. Lots of grapefruit and pine. Creamy body and dry finish. This went really well with some moderately spiced paneer at the Nepalese restaurant in Madison.

arkurzynski (2342) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2010
On tap at brewery. Nice amber color in appearance. Great medium level, Northwestern hops in the aroma. Good mix of grapefruit, floral, and pine aromas. Great caramel malt backbone on this one. Pairs well with the hop bitterness that doesnt go overboard, but continues to let you know its there. Nice bitter finish. Well balanced and towards the hops end.

Pours a medium amber with an off white head and some clinch lace as it goes down the glass. Nose isnt overpowering in any way. Get a bit of piney and citrusy hops atop a good amount of malt. Taste is balanced overly in favor of the malt and brings a little bit of alcohol flavors. Mouthfeel ia a bit light but within the acceptable range. Drinks okay, but not something Im clamoring to have again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-01-2010

Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2010
On tap at the brewery, pours with a very exciting aroma. Fruity, citrus, floral hops, bouquet of flowers, eagerly anticipating the taste. Taste is a little disappointing, but still solid. Thick, floral hops, citrus, something mellowly harsh at the start. Finishes a bit bitter, overall a very good beer.

DalzAle (2029) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle bonus thanks to MrPickles! Clear dark orange pour, little carbonation and a sweet grapefruit aroma. Flavor is very bitter citrus, stale hops and herbal on the aftertaste. All around decent IPA.

Drake (13152) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2010
12 ounce bottle opened 5/9/10 and courtesy of Mr. Pickles. Thanks! Pours a hazy dark brown color with a medium sized tan frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. The aroma is primarily citrus hops with a bit of a tropical vibe, and toffeeish malts. The taste is citrus hop notes with a strong earthy/resiny component. Some tropical notes here as well. Medium bodied. Pretty good IPA.

aroma is darkened pine and super resin, big caramel backnote. appearance is murky, hazy amber with good messy lacing and lingering ring. the ultimate in IPA appearance reminiscent of crooked tree. flavor is intense caramel before hops which come later with sticky pine sap, still hop heavy despite overall balance. wonderous beer.

TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - MAY 30, 2010
12oz bottle.
Pours a deep amber-orange that is surprisingly clear given the amount of yeast sediment stirring about in there. Big pillowy white head forms on pour and gradually settles down to a light layer that never goes away. Big chunks of lace are left behind as the glass empties. Aroma is a burst of orange and grapefruit plus a solid caramel-malt backbone. Flavor is substantially bitter with floral, resiny hops whose citrus character is a little less prominent in the flavor than in the aroma. The caramel-y malt stays in the background and provides good support to keep the hops from getting out of control. Some good earthy yeasty goodness provides yet another flavor dimension to this multi-layered brew. A tiny hint sour-mash flavor shows up as the beer warms that seems out of place, but not enough to materially detract from the overall experience. Thick and tingly palate with long, floral/bitter aftertaste. Yep, this ones a winner.
