Nuffield (4142) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Yellow. Somewhat floral aroma, and a flavor that offers some curious notes later, including some citrus but also some spices, like juniper and light licorice. A little astringent as it went on. Not noticeable in the flavor, but the 6.2% was apparent in the effect it had. Slightly richer, more oily body, than expected. O.k. but perhaps a bit flawed. Bottle.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a darkish dingy orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malt, citrus, pine, and lemon. Notes of cereal grains, mild caramel, iced tea. Flavor is moderately bitter initially with some caramel sweetness and burnt sugar notes. Bitterness intensifies as you drink but it is more of a nondescript generic bitterness rather than a flavorful hop bitterness. Medium bodied, very average carbonation. Finish is abrupt and bitter. This is average.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Clear golden amber with a frothy white slowly fading topper. Aroma is a floral citrus mix with caramel and grains. Taste is sweet with citrus, caramel and middle-of-the-road malt. Zippy finish with average bitterness.

Brigadier (3650) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle
A pickup over the Great Taste of the Midwest this was consumed as soon as possible to enjoy a solid Wisconsin IPA. Its not the biggest or boldest example of the style. That said it was worth the $1.99. This falls easily into the "nice to have a six pack around" category.

Aroma / Appearance - A caramel bronze base sits in the glass lazily. Starchy white head is the color of bleached laundry. Earthy grass, warm hops, and a pleasant malt bill balance against each other. This is hoppy without being an IPA bomb and almost feels like more of an English style IPA.

Flavor / Palate - Tree bark, resin, and the bitterness of muddy hops slide gracefully over the tongue. The transition is like licking a basket of pine cones that have dried by a fireplace. Malt driven flavors sweep into a finish that reminds me of an English pale ale. For that reason it might keep better than some hop bombs but I still would not sit on it.

madvike (3237) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle - Pours clear amber with a big fluffy white head and beautiful lacing. Nose is clean dry malt, light peppery spicing, and a piney hop aroma. Taste is medium bready-sweet malt, more dry pepperiness, and a understated pine/grass hoppiness. Soft, clean body and well-carbonated. Now Im no Capital fanboy--far from it--but Im baffled at the low scores on this one so far. Its soft up until the finish, well-balanced, and fairly clean and dry. Theres nothing in-your-face about it, but honestly thats probably my favorite thing about it. I went in with low expectations--especially after hating their new DIPA--and was pleasantly surprised.

Chudwick (3114) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 28, 2014
12oz bottle into Le Duvel (time stamp was unreadable - 70 IBUs) - nose is allergy season in a glass. Sip adds strong citrus notes, mostly grapefruit but way more astringent. Strong hop flavor but not much in the taste department. Noticeable malty backbone. Mutiny? more like moot-eeny.

Christpuncher (3075) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2013
An average ipa at best. Very fruity and not too hoppy. Smells malty. Had this at my brother in laws house. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (2929) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from BrookFalls Discount. Pours a very clear pale orange with a soapy white head leaving a lot of lacing. Aroma has fruit, bread and faint pine. Taste is of sweet toffee malts, some citrus and a lot of resin. Finishes sweetly with some bitterness. A semi-malty, semi bitter ipa.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle at a friends tasting. From notes. Floral and pine with a huge citrus nose and taste. Probably one of the better capital beers Ive had.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark golden with a nice white head and lacing through the glass, looks nice, the aroma is pretty sweet with more biscuit and bread coming through than hops, the flavor has a light front end and a little kick of hops in the finish, the mouthfeel is pretty light and the finish is dry, just seemed pretty thin through out, glad to see Capital expanding their styles a little bit, but this one isnt going to be their big seller.
