JPDIPSO (6094) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bronze to copper in color with a moderate sized, off-white colored head. Toasted malt aromas, with just a hint of floral to herbal hops. I certainly would have guess an amber, Vienna, of Oktoberfest, if this would have been given to me blind. Malty flavors from the start, with a touch of nuttiness and bit of metal in the finish and into the linger. Not much of an IPA by todays standards. 5/11

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a pine and grass combination with sweet grains backing. Flavor has pine throughout supported by grass and light sweet grains.

(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, pine, and toffee. Flavor of grass, caramel, earth, and citrus with a watery mouthfeel.

Dogbrick (12596) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Pale orange color with a thin white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light body with flavors of citrus, mild hops and grainy malt. The finish is lightly bitter with a short fruity hops aftertaste Pretty average overall.

arminjewell (9567) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with thin to no white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, some grass, pine, slight orange, pretty plain without much there. Taste was a mix of grass, biscuit, bread, some slight orange, finishing fairly dry, slightly bitter.

pablo951 (663) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Had it on tap at Northwoods Brewery in Eau Claire Wi. Poured a clear amber hue with even lacing and a medium head. Smelled of hop citrus aroma and the taste did not live up to the aroma, small hop, bad bitter taste.

wlajwl (6598) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Aroma is citrus, mild sugar sweetness and a hint of grainy malts. The flavor is citrus, earthy/slightly nutty malts and a mild fruit/tart finish.

nuplastikk (6105) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2012
12oz bottle. Gusher..not explosive, but massive head that seemed uncharacteristic. Sweet seawater aroma. This brewery lacks any finesse and clearly has all sorts of off flavors. Couple that with cheap ingredients and you truly have a shabby offering. There is some soapy dry bitterness, but the malt undercurrents are sloppy and half-tolerable at best. Never again.

drowland (8475) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2012
8/11/12. GTMW. Orange pour with a small khaki head that laces alright. Light earthy hops in the aroma with some citrus and touches of caramel and malt. Earthy flavor as well with a bit of hoppiness, citrus, and plenty of caramel and malt on top of a touch of a metallic tinge. Eh.

BVery (10122) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2011 Tap at Northwoods in Eau Claire, WI on Nov. 18, 2011. Golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is citrus hops and toffee. Medium palate. Taste is citrus hops, and a touch of malt and toffee. Not too bad.
