Bottle from beerboxer. Pours light amber gold with a creamy white head. Aroma seems earthy. Med body. Foamy carb. Flavor seems very hoppy, but it’s earthy hop. Mild hop burn. It’s sort of chewy. Malt backbone exists, but it’s not exactly caramel. Lots of bitter on the tongue sides. Personally, I think this ale deserves a higher rating than it has garnered. It’s laid back, but there seems to be lots of ingredients - not a cheaply brewed ale. Finishes dry, bitter and satisfying - hop wise. Cousin_Larry (895) - - FEB 7, 2015

Pours a hazy orange with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of hops, bread, pine. For an IPA this one is pretty smooth with a crisp citrus flavor. This is my first sampling from Capital Brewery and I think its pretty good, I am curious to try their lager now. jmagnus87 (3302) - 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 I’ve had. BeerInHeaven (493) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2013
deep hazy gold with a lacy medium beige head. Aroma is malt, hops, grass. taste is full and hoppy. finish is hops and a nice nasal linger. Good beer!

Got some of this in Florida. After moving away from WI these are hard to come by. But this is your average IPA. Nice citrus aroma and taste, but a rather simple IPA. RRistow12 (980) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and toffee malt. Very little hop aroma. Maybe a little pine. Taste is definitely more towards the malt side. Sweet taste up front with mild bitter finish. Caramel, toffee, syrup and pine flavors. Medium bodied with a clingy sweet mouthfeel. I really like the taste and it's pretty smooth but really doesn't taste like an IPA. If you're looking for a bitterly hoppy beer look elsewhere. I think it's a good beer just mis-classified.

Poured from the can into my favorite pint glass, lots of nice foam and lacing. This is what we call a good commercial beer. It comes in a can, it’s 13 bucks a twelver, and it’s 6.2%. It’s quite drinkable to the tune of about 5 an hour. So over all if a six pack of IPA goes for about 10 bucks it’s like you are getting the 2nd for 3. Best deal in the beer biz and its far from junk! crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Whte grape aroma might suggest sauvin hops in the aroma. Flavor is again winey, medium bitterness, light mandarin orange, and some bready malt. Crisp, dry palate. illiniphil (148) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2013
Capitals first shot at an IPA. Poured a nice dark golden with a one finger head that hung around with decent lacing. Pretty straightforward palate but yet enjoyable. Not complicated but yet very solid.
