A golden IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, clover honey and floral hops, faint, but nice. In mouth, a light bodied yet nice IPA with grassy floral hops, decent. On tap at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012.

This is a good place to start if you are looking to try an IPA for your first time. It pours a cloudy golden amber with a heavy scent of hops. There is a good bitterness to it but not as overwhelming as other hoppy beers. Perhaps a little on the weaker side for folks that love the bitter taste of IPA’s but still a decent brew. starewich (170) - - DEC 16, 2012
Orange with thin head. Good tropical nose. Flavor is a pretty plain and typical but with a sort of Pepto Bismol twist. Nice to smell, less to taste. bytemesis (8776) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow orange with particulate floaties. Large creamy white head that dissipates slowly leaving clumpy lacing. Aroma is grain corn syrup, and resin. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet, lightly bitter. Medium light body. Taste was more like a slight hoppy lager. I can only assume that this sat on the shelves a while, but as-is it was not good.

Gold color with a thick white head that laces the glass. Light hops aroma. Flavor has some sweet malt but also lots of sweet citrus and bread dough. Full flavored, but an astringent aftertaste. jgb9348 (6388) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Clear light amber or nice copper glowing body with a hint of an orange tint and a thick, seven centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, yeast, bread, hop pellets, grass, hay and a bit of an earthy note. Medium-bodied; Nice bright light hops at first with a bit of a bready/yeast note then a grassy, herbal hoppy flavour at the end. Aftertaste is relatively mild with the herbal flavours coming out and not much of the hops and hardly any malt. Overall, perhaps a bit too watery and not enough flavours, definitely not enough complexity for the style. Still, nice to try from Wisconsin and worth trying if you aren’t from the area. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Trig’s Cellar 70 in Minocqua, Wisconsin on 28-July-2012 for US$1.65 sampled at home in Washington on 09-October-2012.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Very basic IPA. Clear gold/amber body minimal head. Slight malt nose. Light body above average carbonation. Resinous pine finish that lingers. Sessionable. AWISLguy (3234) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a very unclear yellowish orange with a million floaties and a very foamy white head. Aroma has faint pine and citrus. Taste is of caramel malt, sweet fruit, some pine, some grapes. Very malty/dark fruity and sweet. Finishes tarty sweet with some length. Shrug? Not my style of IPA. valpoaj (745) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle pour - yellow orange with robust white head that settles slowly. Aroma is pleasant with flowery hops and some biscuity malts. Flavor didn’t have as much going for it - decent level of hops, but not much backbone to brace the hops on...just not very remarkable. Palate is appropriate for the style. Decent beer, nothing more and nothing less
