UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Bottle at Bodega in La Crosse. This beer is a clear amber color with a thick off-white head that burns away slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Medium body with a resiny hops character that has floral and earthy notes, plus some malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness left behind. Above average overall.

12 oz bottle from Jason A. Dark orange/brownish pour with a fluffy white head. Amazing citrus hoppy aroma. Awesome hoppy flavor with a nice malty backbone, thick chewy mouthfeel with a bitterly hoppy finish.

wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Tasted from bottle purchased at Discount Liquor. Pours clear amber with a thick and rocky off-white head that leaves a massive lace. THe nose is floral and resin hops with a solid sweet malt backbone and good bitterness. The flavor is sweet with a bit of brine (in a good way). The resin and floral hops come through nicely and finish with a pleasant malt and nuttiness. The body is medium plus with average carbonation and a long bitter and sweet finish.

12oz bottle, courtesy of MrPickles. Thanks, Andy! Pours a bright, medium-amber color; lightly effervescent with high clarity; creamy, fine-bubbled, off-white head with good retention and lacing; nice pour on this. Pungent hop aroma without the negatives of overt alcohol or painful sweetness; lots of juicy, earthy hop oiliness and vibrant citrus notes, with just a touch of vinous character from the ethanol and a mild, candied maltiness; well-handled nose. Medium-high body; medium-plus carbonation; significant vinous character from the alcohol, but not especially warming or harsh; not getting much astringency here, although there is a persistent tea-like note that carries some tannic character with it; definitely some heft here and some weightiness, and while I dont feel comfortable saying "this is a midwest double IPA" I kind of want to...; theres definitely an English-ness and earthiness to this beer, in both the hops and the malt core: the hop character is attractively bitter, with a resiny earthiness and a citrus component with a light amount of grapefruit-like rind note to it, but nothing approaching the vibrant citrus and dry core of a prototypical west coast rendition (plus... nothing close to pale about this beer); the malt core, in a similar fashion, is strongly honeyed, with some crystalline sugars and a tea-like element mentioned earlier; attenuation could be better, definitely, but overall this is pretty drinkable and solid; just not exceptional. Medium-length finish of toastiness, lingering earthy bitterness, and hints of honey; the far end is reasonably balanced, with a lasting bitter dryness. Theres a hint of a vegetal character here, but this really never plays out.

Lightly hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, over ripe citrus fruits, caramel, and grass. Taste of citrus, grass, toffee, caramel, and light grapefruit.

12oz bottle. Thanks to Andrew for giving me this to try.... Pours a mostly transparent amber brown with a thin to medium soapy white head... Aroma has some faded hops to begin with, somewhat soapy, alongside sweeter caramelized notes... Semi-sweet citrusy hops in the forefront that quickly caramelize with the counteracting malts. A bit soapy through the middle and the finish. Sliver of bitterness in the finish. Thinner mouthfeel. Should have tried this earlier.
