Murky amber with a thin off-white head and flame lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel and floral hops. Flavor comes across too vegetal with floral hops and mild caramel, some orange as well. A little too sweet and not as aggressive as most pale ales. Itís okay. weihenweizen (3746) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brow bottle poured into a snifter. Light orange, aroma is light herbal hops, and herbal hops. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2014
On draft at Milwaukee Ale House.
The beer is dark copper with a quarter inch of off-white head. The aroma offers resinous hops, pine, earth. Hop flavor followed by subtle notes of mint and herbal tea. An odd assortment. Not entirely off-putting, but certainly unusual. Some bready notes as well, finishing with a semi-sweet bitterness. Interesting. One and done for me.

Draft at Milwaukee Alehouse. Pours an attractive orangey-gold with a fluffy white head. The nose is fresh and vibrant. Light florals combine with a bright citrus-peel note as well. Crisp and clean overall. On tasting, main issue is that it seems a touch watery. Bright hops and a firm bitterness are present but the malt is a bit thin. Not bad, but could use a bit more malt. Comes across as an APA more than an IPA. madvike (3250) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy light amber with a huge fluffy off white head. Light citrus/herbal hopping on the nose and a bit of lightly toasted malt. Balanced. Taste is roughly the same, with a hint of nuttiness. A touch of mineral, and not much hoppiness, even through the finish. Light bodied, a little slick, and nice carbonation. Pretty subtle, but very balanced.

Single bottle from Binnyís Build-a-Six rack. Nice copper IPA color with a thick, slightly orange-ish head. Slightly citrus and pine hop smell. Taste is up front with hop bitterness.After a thousand IPAs, it gets hard to say what makes one different from the other, but this does have a slightly larger malt backing, even if it does support a pretty standard hop balance. But as a year-round beer, you canít expect too many non-repeatable variations. AWISLguy (3016) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2017
12oz bottle from singles rack of the local liquor store. No bottle date. Darker than standard pour, off-white head. Aroma has candied fruit, lemon and a strong caramel malt base. Taste is of sweet syrupy caramel malts, all sort of dead hops in this one, Iím assuming. There is some tangy fruits, certainly candied fruit, pineapple. Shrug? This likely isnít what it really is. Bit of a bummer. 12 ThirstyBird (2914) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a hazy amber color with a tan head. The smell is apple, caramel, vegetal, resin. The taste is pine, caramel, apple, fruit grapefruit ending dry and bitter. Light/medium in body with average carbonation. Fairly sweet and malty. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Draft. From notes. Grass and grains, slightly earthy hops. Slightly bitter taste. Meh, itís ok. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a dark copper/amber with a nice white head and lacing through out the glass, aroma has a decent citrus and hop touches to it, the flavor has a little sweeter than Iím used to for an IPA but it still works, nice smooth finish, decent.
