Dry-hopped with Columbus hops in our open fermenters, our IPA boasts a bright floral aroma and flavor reminiscent of pine and lemon peel. The pronounced hop bitterness is balanced by a medium-bodied caramel and biscuity malt character with a nutty finish. It showcases many subtle earthy bitter notes, rather than the resinous citrus-rind bite often featured in many American-style IPAs.

12 oz. bottle into a tumbler. 7:15 pm. Purchased from New Grocery and Deli. Fresh citrus, and a mild scent of hops make up the aroma. The citrus seems livelier and more prominent than in other IPA’s, enjoyable. Very small head, dissipates quickly. A bit lighter in color than expected, very attractive amber. A well balanced pale ale. Not too much hops, which is refreshing. Citrus and apples shine through in the taste. Excellent. Smooth palate, very drinkable. Definitely drink again for a session. Not a ton of unique flavors, but great balance. Enjoyable to drink and does leave you with a bit to think about.

Hazy deep golden with a thick foamy ivory head. Bright bitter earthy dry hop aroma with a leafy tone and a little pith. Crisp bitter earthy tone with a lovely floral resin hoppiness and lovely hop complexities. Just interesting and pithy and earthy and bitter. Dry but balanced.

Bottled. No clear date. Pours deep honey, white bubbly head. Aroma is sweet malt, sugar, orange, citrus. Flavor is orange, kind of generic ale, slightly bitter, malt. May be old. Or may just not be a very good ipa.

Scipio (869) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Pours a clear, bubbly amber with a short light beige head. Aroma has caramel, floral hops, bread, and a light grapefruit. The taste is similar to what the nose offers. It has floral hops, caramel some lemon, with hints of grapefruit still noticeable. There really isnt any bitterness in here. Mild yet lingering lemon aftertaste. Medium in body, average in carbonation. Nothing stands out in the texture, so Ill call it neutral. Overall, this is drinkable, though rather bland.

12 oz bottle poured amber into a pint glass with a finger of head. Nice aroma of hops. This tasted more malty than hoppy with a touch of an astringent after taste. No born on date on the bottle to know if it is beyond its time.

Draft at Brewsters, Kalamazoo. A little surprised Ive never rated this. Fairly certain Ive had this somewhere along the line even though its not available in MN. Hint of Butterscotch/diacetyl in the nose which seeps into the flavor, however, not in a really bad way. Beautiful artistic, sheet lace. Amber body. Nice Bready finish. In some ways this reminds me of Lucid Foto although Foto is better. Had a bells Two Hearted just before this, which is not really fair as there is no comparison.
