A slightly hazy copper and amber brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has a fair amount of citrus and a little bit of pine. There is also some almond and caramel. The taste has lots of grapefruit citrus bursting out like crazy! Wow, one of the most citrus forward IPA’s I have ever tasted. The malt backbone is fairly dry which allows the citrus sweetness of the hops to shine through. There is also a nice toasted nut quality to the finish. This is an excellent citrus tasting IPA.

From tap into pint glass, poured with a medium carbonation a light amber colored beer with a deep off white head. Nose is funky citrus and flora with a hint of malt sweetness. The flavor starts with a good bitterness lending itself to a slight biscuit/malt sweetness that finishes with a long citrus bite. This is a well balanced English/American hybrid IPA. pjwalsh2 (87) - Palos Park, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2011
1. Look - A deep golden beer, almost amber in color, with a medium white head.
2. Sniff – There is a piney aroma present, but it very soft and subtle.
3. Sip – This is a tasty IPA. It is very drinkable with a soft bitterness and a piney finish that is somewhat long lasting.
4. Another Look – The beer is fairly clear and looks tasty, but the lacing is very weak.
5. Evaluate - Overall, I liked this beer, I am impressed. I enjoyed drinking this IPA a lot. It reminded me of Abita’s IPA –but less piney and more enjoyable. This IPA exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this beer to family and friends who enjoy a piney hop aroma and taste in their IPA’s.

Pint bottle: Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a big rocky slowly diminishing head, toasted malts and citrus in the aroma, starts and ends bitter with an orange aftertaste, medium bodied with mellow carbonation. deyholla (12588) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Milwaukee location. Pours a near clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice citrus note with some flora, bitterness and a hint of sweet grains. Flavor starts with citrus and flora but finishes with more of a bitter note of grapefruit.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Last night in Wisconsin, and we are at the cabin. Drove up to a local north woods wine, spirits and more. Great beer selection BTW. I?m on this WI beer kick for this very reason. I like this one. No bells and whistles. Just the IPA you would prefer or expect. Cheers! TattooJack (534) - Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Poured from the 4-pack of big boy (one pint) bottles, a nice burnt orange color which seems weird for a beer brewed in Green Bay. I bought this beer because it was in the cooler and ice cold, to go along with a few bottles I had waiting for me at home. I am very happy with the purchase, and I really like the German style bottles. Drinks stronger than the 6.8% listed, and I drink a lot of strong beer so I should know.

Orange color with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste of caramel and tangy hops,medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, good. Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Draft at the Milwaukee outlet. Same, pure amber color as their pale ale. But this delivers a nice, stingingly resiny hoppinesss. Big, slippery mouthfeel. Sturdy and earthy. (#5149, 7/5/2013)
