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 (864) - 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 (12929) - 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.

12 oz. can. Pours orange amber with a thin off white head that dissipates to a wispy film. Aroma has bitter dry piny hops that also show earthiness. Taste is more bitter dry earthy piny hops some sweet floral grain and a lingering fruit floral flavor. Palate is thin and dry. For 9.99 a 12 pack this shit rocks! ttoadee (1491) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Orange/tan pour, 1 inch white head. Nose is mint and subtle pine. Middle is alcohol, orange sherbert, passion fruit. Finish is sour grapefruit. Interesting. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Clean orange amber. Medium white head, lasting with some lace. Aroma has nice balance - Caramel, citrus, mango; good but not standout. Flavor much the same. Very bitter - a bit too sharp. Theres some sweetness there as well. A good enough beer but the bitterness of the long finish overstays its welcome. Brigadier (3680) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2013

A pickup over the Great Taste of the Midwest this was consumed as soon as possible to enjoy a solid Wisconsin IPA. It’s 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.
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.
