bottle, from brewery. bottled on 11/25/08. gotta like that. Good aroma, bitter, citrus, grapefruit, lemon, grass, minor evergreen, Clean brownish orange color, Good head that faded to a ring. Ok lacing. Bitter flavor, a real puckerer, Medium body, oily creamy mouth feel, bitter finish. The appearance was great on the pour that was more vigorous head pooped up nice. beautiful color, Nice strong aroma. Why is this called Wiggo the IV when it says Holiday Wiggo in their description? eh that’s me. A winner from Holly Springs...

Great IPA. Bright copper pour showcasing Mosiac atop a thick malt caramel backbone. Hoppy and resinous, while maintaining a gorgeous maltiness all the way through. I’ll go if Wiggo.

Dropped off at Milltown by Joe the CEO. Pours a soft copper amber with one finger of dirty white head. Nose is super citrusy and pine, lots of citrus zest and pine resin with nice sweet malt balance. Sharp citrus rind bite in the flavor with a nice grapefruity sweetness. Malt shows through nicely, dry with a medium bite.

Bottle obtained in a trade with OldGrowth. Thanks! Bottled 11/25/08. Poured a clear copper color. The head was thick and off white with good retention and lacing. I smelled caramel, orange, toffee, mango, and a bit of pine. Medium bodied and sweet. Mild to moderate bitterness with caramel, guava, pine and wet stone flavors.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2009
Bottle pours dark amber color with off white head. Aroma has a sweet caramel malt smell with a twang of hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is more caramel malt and finishes with a touch of hop flavor on the backside. When I first tried this I thought it was a red ale. I was surprised to see its an IPA. Guess I should have drank this sooner since its more malty now. A good brew never-the-less.
