COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied, orange hued ale. A variety of toasted and caramel malts create a nice backdrop to the aggressive citrus and floral hop notes. Brewed with three different kinds of hops, this IPA is balanced by the oats added to the mash. The oats not only add an unexpected sweetness, but also a heavier mouthfeel.

Not a bad IPA. For once, an American IPA isn’t overwhelmingly hoppy. This is fairly well balanced and its hop v. malt profile approaches a pale ale. Not bad at all. Tried with Josh N. in 2013.

Cloudy off brown pour tall dense light tan head with nice lacing. Fruity light citrus and grass aroma. Avg palate. Quite sweet subtle bitterness in the swallow. Easy to drink.

March 6, 2014 - bottle at Iron Horse. Copper pour with nice head that lasted. Aroma and taste of piney hops and malt. Nicely balanced with clean finish.

Can. Pours amber brown with creamy off-white head. Nose is light but pleasant - mild fruitiness and just a bit of floral hops. Flavor is lightly sweet, bready maltiness followed by a good dose of lasting bitterness and some hop resin aftertaste. I think I see what MKE was going for here - a strong bitter beer - and it drinks like a strong pale ale or perhaps a burton ale, and would be quite good for an American strong ale but doesn’t hold up against the style profile for most IPAs adopted by U.S. brewers at this moment.

Dark orange pour from 12oz bottle. Cloudy and foggy with white head. Orange and apricot aroma. Juicy fruity taste - better than expected

kseecs16 (1216) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Bottle, purchased at the pub. Pours a hazy copper amber with noticeable effervescence. Head is thin, off-white and leaves thing lines and dots of laing. Aroma is rich, spicy with some hints of orange citrus. Flavor is soapy, citrus with some pine. Finishes spicily bitter. Medium bodied with a moderate lingering bitterness.

Cletus (6351) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Bottle courtesy of ughsmash. Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of resin, metallic, soapy. Tastes resiny and sticky with some molasses undertones and an earthy, slightly bitter finish.

Lubiere (14341) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2012
An orange amber IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, classic pinhey hops, citrus pulp, caramel malt. In mouth, a smooth biscuit with piney hops, citrus, candy sugar, very nice. Bottle at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 21 2012.

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 12 oz. Bottle - Pours a light amber color. Nice hop flavor and the bitterness is well balanced. Caramel malt & citrus are here which work well in this IPA. Not too overpowering @ 7.5%. Very nice overall.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2012
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.
