Scooped a six-pack at a gas station in Wisconsin as my pops and I traveled to Green Bay territory to witness another Bears loss :(

From my recollection, this was about 7.49!!!

I had this on tap from Ale Sylum so my appearance rating may not be a fair rating (since I most recently just had it from the bottle).

S- Citrus, faint hops.
T- Definitley not as hoppy as other APA styles I've had. Not as harsh, almost zest like in flavor.
M-Easy on the palate, little carbonation.
O-If I am ever back in Wisonsin, I will seek this out again. Tasty and economical. It was great to have with chips and pizza.

A very nice IPA. I got a nice bitter hoppy taste. There was a fair amount of citrus and pine notes as well-maybe not as much as my favorite IPAs but enough to make this something I should try and purchase down the line. I am always partial to local breweries and this was a good version of a pale ale.

Got this from friends from Wisconsin, thanks!

Poured from a squat 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a mildly hazy golden yellow with a two finger white head that reduces to an 1/8" foam lid.

Has a nice, light citrusy aroma, with hints of orange blossom honey and malt.

Begins with caramel sweet, mild pepper spice and orange citrus, before finishing bright and hoppy.

Medium bodied, this is a very easy drinking brew. I'm happy to have had this brew, but am sad this is my final beer of the six pack.

A - Pours a hazy orange, 1 finger white head forms a retaining collar with a few speck of lacing.

S - Dank grapefruit citrus aroma, bready yeast, light caramel and pale malts. Has a bit of a cotton candy aroma.

T - Creamy orange citrus, doughy bread, some lemon and pine come out with the slightly fruity malt and the breadyness turns slightly toasted. Finishes dry with some bitterness.

M - Soft carbonation, full body for the style.

Cascade is the star but doesn't outshine a simple but tasty malt base. Very nice creamy feel with great carbonation. Wish this was available where I live.
