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.

A - It pours a transparent golden amber with a thin white head that disappates fairly quickly

S - Fruity, citrusy hops upfront balenced fairly well by a mild, but sweet, malt backbone

T - A great balence of pine and citrus hit you up front and quickly fade into a semi-sweet finish

M - Light bodied and refreshing. Very clean light hop finish and moderate carbonation.

O - It's a pretty enjoyable APA to me. Everyone consistently looks to have their taste buds blown off by the latest and greatest IIPA, so brews like this go unappreciated. When looking for a carefully done APA, I think you should give this a serious consideration!

Poured into a pint glass. Big foam that slowly became a thick film. Nice amber color, slightly cloudy. Wonderful hop scent. Bright and citrusy. Easy drinking mild taste. Hops, citrus, light bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel, not to light. Overall a good beer. I could easy drink several.
