A smooth ale with a good amount of hops. Leaves the pallet thriving for more. A definite recommended ale. SHANER4 (500) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 30, 2009
On tap at Moose Jaw in WD - Dark amber pour with medium white head. Great lacing on glass as I drank.
Aroma - floral hops and caramel malt. Really decent aroma from this brew.
Flavor - Alot of caramel malt with very nice balance of hops. I really don’t consider this beer an IPA but taste is excellent.
Palate - creamy mouthfeel and medium bodied. Finish is clean with slight hop bite and no aftertaste.
Overall - WOW!!! I really liked this beer, easy to drink with great fresh taste. First beer from Moosejaw but plan on trying more. triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Hints of hop aroma, american hops. The hop flavor jumps out, very nice. Hint of malt flavor. Medium body, wonderful hop finish. Wow, excellent beer for the hop lover. hero27 (19) - Iowa, USA - AUG 14, 2006
On-tap @ the Brewpub.
Amber color. The fresh hop aroma you get right off the bat is great, and I was told all the hops used are locally grown...nice. A solid use of caramel malts, but the hops take over from there and lead to a great, smooth brew that is certainly hop-driven.
I asked the bartender if there were any plans to bottle their beers in the near future, and he actually said they are planning to bottle the Kilbourn Hop Ale soon. Assuming that’s done, it’ll start very local for sure, but it’d be nice to see this one out in stores for more people to try.
Overall impression..this is a very good, hoppy pale ale. You can’t stop at this place and not try this one. arkurzynski (2427) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Hazy golden amber. Big herbally pine nose. Flavor is more thick herbal pine with some golden malt. Bitter finish. Surprising.

Ya know what... I really liked this one. Copper with white head and good lacing. Nose is hoppy and the taste is just about the same with some good malt character to it. Imagine a good IIPA but tone everything down about 50 fold and that is what this is. There is a good balance and is very drinkable. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2011
On tap at Moosejaw brewpub. Hazed amber with a creamy tan head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy with a floral and citrus mix, lots of grapefruit and mild to medium bitterness on the back end. Decent IPA. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
On tap at restaurant and brewery, pours a clear dark amber orange with a creamy white head and quite a bit of lacing, the aroma has a decent amount of hops and citrus that come through with a malt backing, the flavor has a nice citrus and fruit hop at first with a caramel and malt finish, well balanced, actually pretty good stuff. wlajwl (6811) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Aroma is strong kiwi/tropical fruit and a hint of fruit/fruit candy. The flavor is tropical fruit, mild hop resin, malts and a bitter/slightly tangy finish. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2005
The nose definitely has a hop presence but is well balanced. Clear, dark amber body. No visible carbonation. Creamy lace and head. Nice mouthfeel. Hops are clearly there, as is the malt. Well balanced as the nose predicted. Strongish with a bite. Some flaws but not glaring.
