Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy golden with a small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is floral hop and wheat grass. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet citrus hop and light bitter finish. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well, a very good IIPA from New Glarus.

Bottle shared by Bunker. Poured clear orange copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy citrus hop aroma.

Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation and soft alcohol bite at the finish. Standout brew.

12 ounce bottle from the brewery. Brought back to me by my friend Jay at Beer Run. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Big citrus hops in the aroma... very lemon forward. Some faint malty notes. The taste is earthy, peppery and citrus hops. Mostly citrus. Candied citrus reminiscent of Lemonheads candy with no sweetness. Pale malty notes. Well balanced. Nice beer. crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2011
12 oz red foiled bottle. They took Dan off the label and renamed the Unplugged series the "Thumb print" series.
It pours like a West-coast DIPA. It is pale, light, and orangeish gold. The head is a bit over-soapy looking and recedes quickly, but ti does leave some decent lacing.
The nose has a lot of peach twang. It is peachy and malty, but not necessarily caramally, the malt has more of a white sugar scent to it.
The flavor is definitely interesting. It is an interplay of spicy and piney hops and peachy hops. There is a hint of mysteriousness reminds me of Summit hops. Though this one isn’t the garlic tomato onion bomb that is Gubna. It isn’t a riveting bitter tongue bruiser, but it isn’t a malt bomb. It is nicely balanced perhaps leaning towards bitter.
I feel this beer was thought-out and well-crafted, it tasts of the passion of the brewer. It isn’t my favorite in the style but I can appreciate what it is.
