Pours to a golden lager-type color with thin skim of a white head that lingered shortly and left little lacing. Aroma was faint lemony citrus with just a hint of hops. Mouthfeel was a slight tingle-slight skunk mix, and the taste was a continuation of the citrus fruit found in the nose. Rounded off to a finish that was dry, a shade bitter and a little skunky.
Not much to this one. KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Gold color. Smell of hops, malt, light pine and citrus, flowers and some caramel. Taste of caramel, minor citrus, hops, flowers, honey, pine and a little pine. Decent. jbuzz (838) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2008
Capital night at Three Cellars Milwukee.
A nice easy drinking Pale. Good Hop after taste S_Side_Smitty (802) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Light amber in color with a thin head. Aroma is a nice blend of pine & malts - maybe a little yeast too. Taste is a combination of citrus-like hops and a strong roasted malt flavor. I know I’m being vague, but it’s hard to pinpoint exact flavors. Up front, you’re hit with the hops and that super rich "maltiness". The light bitterness slides in at the finish - it’s almost sneaky. Not bad, but a little monotone for me. TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2008
This is listed as a summer brew, however It was not available in the store (in Madison, where it is brewed) until almost December. Hoppy and delightful beer, with a bit too bitter of an aftertaste. Overall good, but not a beer I would drink multiple of in a row.

Bottle from sampler rack at PW. Pours clear golden orange with thin white head. Mildly hoppy, floral nose. Initial taste isn’t as bitter / hoppy as you’d usually expect from a typical pale. Not bad but far from outstanding...pleasant. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Pours a clear copper yellow with thin white head that dissipates. Aroma is lemon citrus with hops and cereal. Flavor is quite a bit of hops and bitterness. Body is light and carbonation is average. Nothing special about this pale ale....just another pale ale. twindadplus2 (736) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Nice clear amber color with a good sized foamy head. Aroma of flowery hops, light citrus and malt. Nice floral hops backbone with a bit of bready malt to balance it out. Very nice. noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Nice grapefruit hops aroma, light honey malts. Medium clear amber, thin white head, no lace. Strong citrus hops on the front with honey sweetness, then finishes a little off; the hops are more bitter than aromatic in a way that doesn’t work well with the biscuity malt finish. Medium body, frothy carbonation, prickly hops.
