portableparty (2398) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2013
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.

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.

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. 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.

esjaygee (3906) - 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.

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.
