Draft at the downtown brewpub. This is a clear, dark amber brew with a medium, sticky head. Drinks quite smooth, if a bit metallic perhaps. Doubt this is a "winter seasonal" since I had it for July 4th brunch. (#5133, 7/4/2013)

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 Tasted on tap at Great Danes Downtown location. Poured a clear amber with an off white head. A sweet mango aroma. A smooth hop taste with too little bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it tap at the Great Dane downtown location in Madison. Poured a clear amber hue with a foamy head and a hop alcohol aroma. Bitter hop taste with notes of alcohol.

sherm1016 (1273) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Draft at the Great Dane in Wausau. Pours a clear amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is lightly hoppy, some pine. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, pine hops, with a bitter pine finish. Underwhelming.

AWISLguy (2652) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2012
On cask at the Doty brewpub. Pours from 10 pulls on the cask and comes out very cloudy sandy/muddy tan that eventually dissipates into an unclear orangey-brown with a firm head. Naturally being from cask, great retention on the head. Aroma has resin and citrus and some pine, all somewhat muted. Taste is of sticky resin, sweet caramel, slightly bitter grapefruit and orange, and spruce. Sticky full body. A touch of an off flavor up front, but through the glass it became less off-putting. Finishes bittersweet and of medium length. Didnt love, didnt hate. Fairly easy drinker.

nuplastikk (5839) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Draft at Wausau. Toasty classic sub-par brwepub IPA. Unfiltered cloudy orange-brown. Thin, oily head laces the glass. Moderate orange-citrus, relatively well balanced. Somewhat mild and watery, not so memorable. OK, but too watery to love. My numbers seem way too generous.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Madison, WI. Pours a deeper golden, slight orange tinted body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is light with some sugary florals and stale hops with a thin, but sweet caramel. Flavor is really sweet. Lots of sweet orange fruits, some earth and lemon pines, thin caramels, and a slightly buttery toffee. Finishes sweet and fruity with a moderate bitterness that dries this lightly. Lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a light carbonation. Overall, this wasnt a very good IPA. Really sweet and fruity with a soapy hop bitterness and an off flavored caramel.

Pitcher at the downtown brewery. Heavy fruit flavor, very big alcohol presence, and something weird must have been going on with the taps because it was completely flat with no carbonation. No foam retention after the initial 10 seconds after the bartenders pour from the tapper. Bitter at the end and thick bodied. Ill have to try it again some other time to give it another chance.

BVery (9788) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 On tap at the brewpub in Wausau, WI. Clear amber pour with a white head. Nose is hop and some scotch-ale sweatsock. Good lively carbonated and hoppy palate. Taste is earthy, caramel malt, hop, and more of the scotch-ale elements. Not my kind of IPA.
