3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delicious and complex IPA. Aroma was good. A perfect mix of sweet malt and dank heavy hops. Pour was just the way I love an IPA. A light hazy gold with a one finger white head. Taste was nice. I was worried at first sip because the malt was heavy and sweet but no worry. Mid sip and through the swallow it was all bitter and dank hops. Grapefruit and a little pine. Nice bitter finish. None of that dumb mango or tropical fruit crap. Nice carbonation round this beer out

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Medium to darker amber. Hazy. Finger of white foam. Laces nicely
Nose: citrus, pine and grass. Honey sweetness as well.
Taste: bigger citrus and pine hops in the front that mellow towards the end. Decent back of the sip bitters. Touch of restrained honey caramel sweetness throughout.
Body: medium and sharp on the first sip.
Parting thoughts: A very solid IPA. Nicely constructed.

Tap at Pyramid Scheme. Almost clear dark golden with off white head with lots of lacing. Mango, quite some caramel, dank weedy hops, a bit of cardboard, green leaves and grassy. Medium sweet and bit over medium bitter. A bit over medium bodied with over medium carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle, last of a six-pack from Woodmans in Janesville, WI. Served from a Fitgers pint glass just above fridge temperature. I like IPAS cold, so sue me! A beautiful pour, with a creamy, lasting meringue head atop a translucent, golden body...aroma is sweet, sticky and pungent, the several hop varieties creating overall a musky profile that carries most of the typical IPA smells at once - citrus, resin, grasses, dry herbs, but overall dominated by a sweet (almost sickly-sweet) honey-wet bark character...on the tongue, sweetness hits first but is overwhelmed by a strong deep bitterness at midpalate, drying out considerably into a long, tingly finish. Body is very full, almost too full and verging on syrupy (this is why it’s best quite cold) but that lingering dry, slightly woody finish very much saves it. On the whole, one of my favorite current Midwestern IPAs, and it’s ease of drinking and lack of fuesal alcohol presence belies it’s strength, just as it should be for a beer like this.

12oz bottle. Pour is golden with pronounced haziness. Head is rather thin but persistent. Hops aromas dominate on the nose. Citrus and fresh grain come to mind. Lots of tropical fruit (melon) combined with a sweet maltiness. Finish is more citrus and hops. I can see why this is a staple in there portfolio. Well put together IPA.
