Thanks to iNBe for this. Again New Glarus produces a product of quality. The hops are more floral in this IIPA and at the end is a crisp, tart note. Much easier drinking than it should be. Serving: Bottle
12 oz bottle from a 4 pack rated from notes. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, pale toasted malts, earthy, citrus and resiny hops, orange zest, carries the abv nicely, good. JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Lightly hazed golden color with a taller light beige color. Big ruby red grapefruit aromas. Just a hint of light caramel. Starts with sweet caramel and citrus, much like a grapefruit topped with sugar and broiled. Soft, yet fair full and silky in feel. Very smooth and easy to drink for a hop monster. If anything a bit sweet. 1/11

12oz bottle poured into shaker pint and shared with Tim at the condo. Amber orange body with a bone colored head. Good lacing. Aroma is boozy, with bread and caramel malt backed by citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is bitter citrus peel and pine with sugary sweetness. Medium-full body, oily texture, average-plus carbonation, boozy dry finish. beer_advocate (3) - - SEP 27, 2014 does not count
Picked up a four pack at the brewery earlier in the week. Very smooth for an imperial IPA. If your in Wisconsin this is a must have. BiiruBierBeer (1056) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2015 Tropical citrusy hop smell. Taste is the same wth emphasis on the hops. Medium to high carbonation.

"Tropical fruit and candied grapefruit abound. Pretty bitter, but not overly so with some earthiness and pine and lots of sweetness. Full bodied. Now I’m confused. I thought unplugged beers were a thing of the past, and thumbprint was in the now, but this was fresh. Thanks to Heybeerman for the trade. I think this is the best iPa or pale I’ve had from them." john_henry (124) - - SEP 5, 2014
Great IPA, but not the best I’ve had. Certainly better than anything I had at New Glarus when I visited the brewery, but don’t get too excited for this. drsandman (1588) - New York, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle thanks to Duke, a bit aged. Pours a clear gold / light orange, light off white head. Aroma is fresh honey, dandelion, flowers, pine hop resin, bready malt, clementine. Flavor is sweet malt & floral / pine hop mix, finishes with gooey sweet honey pine hop. Med gooey mouthfeel, med sweet, nice carbonation. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Reviewed from notes: Pine and citrus on the aroma, poured a nice golden color with white head. Light on the palate with piney grass and citrusy notes. Finishes almost sweet. Bacterial (3040) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle that I forgot about in my fridge for a while. Surprisingly still enjoyable! Clear amber pour, lots of white head. Nice hop nose, though perhaps a touch stale. Quite drinkable, dry finish - nice bitterness as well.
