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 (1608) - 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 (2046) - 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 (3760) - 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.

Bright amber hue with an upfront florally citrus aroma. Didn’t blow me away, but it wasn’t bad either. jjgmd (2264) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Pours a light rusty golden color with a short beige ephemeral head . Nose is mildly hoppy but all in all not an aroma buster . Taste is light citrus, mildly hoppy with some trailing sweetness. Finishes bitterly with nice lacing and on the same tasting notes. Descent ! Quaff Score 7 /10 backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange in color. Thin white head leaves just a bit lacing. Fairly average IPA. Lightly sweet, biscuit malt with a moderate pine bitterness. Decent, but needs more hop bitterness. duchowbob (9) - Windsor, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Pretty nice lighter style"session" IPA with good citrus hop balance...could use deeper color and a bit more dry hopping nielsedd (82) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a clear medium orange with a big white head. Good lacing. Smells very citrusy, mostly grapefruit and mango. Tastes of grapefruit, resin, and some pine. Not sure why this beer isn’t rating better, but a very nice IPA and glad to see it from Capital.
