A. Well carbonated with a big white head that recedes quickly to a thin, persistent head. Golden-orange in colore, with a chill haze.

Smell. Citrusy aroma with some Fruity Pebbles tossed in there. The fruitiness gives way to citrus, which is more persistent.

Taste. Sweetish first impression gives way hop bitterness. Alcohol is noticeable in the dry finish.

Mouth feel is ever so slightly slick initialy, prickly in the middle, and slightly astringent in the finish.

I was really impressed with the initial smell and hop flavor I got from this beer, almost scored it a 5 on that count. The alcohol (both my ability to taste it and ABV) detracts a little from my enjoyment of this beer, as I prefer something more in the 5-6% range.

12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint.

A - Medium sized cap of off-white head holds a nice cap. Great clarity to a light copper beer. Left a couple little specs of lacing to the glass.

S - Real nice citrus (orange rind) hop profile, maybe some cascade or centennial. Even getting some lemon tones.

T - Malts try to sneak through early but are swallowed up by citrusy hops (orange peel like). The toasty malt backbone actually sits in the background nicely. Solid punch of bitterness with a strong hop flavor lasting beyond the finish.

M - Bone dry, medium body, medium carbonation.

O - Solid IPA. The more I drink the more its bitterness comes across as sharp. Citrus throughout but alright balance to it. Nice and dry finish, crisp and quenching.

Never had anything from these guys so I grabbed some of this when I was in WI last week. No date on the bottle which always worries me with this style, but I went agianst better judgement and grabbed some. Poured into a pint glass.

This beer pours a dark orange with a thick white head. Nose is pungent with orange, pine, lemon. Good moderately full mouth. The alcohol is noticeable in this one as the 7% comes with a bang. I wouldn't want to down too many of these at once, and this is on a full stomach. Nice bitter character, wih a mild spicy profile. but there is a dry sweet biscuity character as well which makes this more English to me. I would think this is a nice hybrid between American and English IPA. Bitter and tasty, but plenty of sweetness and dry finish as well. A tasty beer that I am glad I picked up.
