Pale Ale's on the coasts of this country are turning into hoppy monsters, but our beer is more mild, and about balance. It has enough bitterness to match the maltiness provided by the pale malt base. It gets its citrus zing from extensive dry-hopping with Cascade hops. This beer was first made in a few small test batches in 2003. The response was so incredibly positive, that it has worked it’s way into a year round beer. A hoppy IPA in the central plains... how exciting!

Nothing blows me away... Just a pale...would be awesome on a hot day at the brewery in Amana ...but here on Illinois it's just ok ... Drinkable but in no way memorable...in no way ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Thanks, Stacy! Pours a clear, dark, bronze color, with a big, foamy, off-white head that leaves thick lacing. The aroma is pine sap, anise, wet grass, and rye. Sweet and malty, with a smooth, pleasant bitterness. Light to medium body, sticky, oily, and fairly clean. This is a solid, simple, and nicely balanced IPA.

Gold pour with average sized white head. Nose of citrus and hint of pine. Flavor is citrus, with light sweetness from the malt. Has a medium body and touch of bitterness on the finish.

12 oz. bottle. Lightly hazy orange in color. Aroma shows me weak grass clippings, mild caramel.

Flavor of a caramel malt backbone, light floral, and mild pine. Weak bitterness. Not bad but more a APA rather than an IPA classification. Just mildly ok.

Decent easy drinking beer. A nice beer to work with. Like cut the lawn, drink this beer. Shovel the snow, drink this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a clear copper color. White head. Aromas of old hops. Just kinda old. No life left.

Itzjerm (3126) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2016
For ABV a very impressive ipa. Nice hop smooth grassiness. REally what you want at this abv. Not to much hop not to much malt. Long lasting head. No off flavors. Wow. This is impressive.

Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma is light hops and malt. Taste is earthy hops and a malty body. Ok tasting. So-so lacing. Good beer.

A solid pale ale. Mild with citrus floral hops. Nice balance throughout the drink. Bitterness at the end.
