12 ounce bottle courtesy of cbfobes. Thanks! Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big floral hops, berries, citrus and pale malts.

12 oz brown bottle. No sign of a date.
It pours slightly dark for th style, it is an orangeish/reddish/copperish brown with golden highlights. The head is large and off-white, it is frothy and takes a while to recede leaving some decent lacing.
The smell is caramally, boozy, and pretty hoppy as well. It has a bit of citrus and pine in there that smells candied with the sweetness this beer carries in the smell.
The taste is a bit weak for a dipa. It has lots of grain and malt flavors, a hit of caramel and some smooth nicely flavored hops that don’t provide much bitterness over the top of all that. My main qualm is that it is a bit watery.
It is merely okay, one of the lesser DIPAs in Wisconsin. Very drinkable though, if you want a summer DIPA that you can just suck down on a hot day this would work.

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.

12oz bottle shared thanks to Josh. Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of floral hops and some earthiness. Tastes of floral hops, pine and lighter caramel. Sammy (12768) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2010
Enjoyed at Pizza Plant Transit, improving bottle selection here with what’s a little off the beaten track. This one is all malts and bitterness, fortunately both are tasty and balance themselves, so decent beer for the style. Passable appearance, aroma, mouthfeel. deyholla (12307) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a red hue and a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a strong resin note with pine, a hint of onion and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has lots of sweet grains with growing resinous pine and a hint of onion. rosenbergh (11809) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2013

Hazy brown colour with a small off-white head.
Dark hops, fruit, resin and sweet maltiness in the aroma.
Bitter flavour. Dark fruits, resin, sweet malt and grain in the flavour. Tasty. Intoxicating.
reddish pour. Nice hit of hops on the nose with a super caramel note. Flavor is sweet and hoppy. Good shit.
