On draft at Milwaukee burgers in Wausau poured into a shaker pint. Clear copper body with a finger of white head. Decent retention with some lacing. Aroma is typical of a citra hop IPA - grapefruit, pineapple, orange, other tropical fruits, caramel and bread malt. The zinfandel juice adds a small vinous note, but I’m not sure I would have know it was there without being told. Taste is good, early caramel sweetness followed by citrus peel bitterness. The zin shows up here with a tannic bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slick texture, dry finish.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass, this most excellent IPA pours a beautiful light amber with a firm tight beaded foam head that slowly dissipates leaving great lacing and a thin pool of foam. Nose of citrus and pine hops, grapefruit, a yeasty sweet bread aroma, and rich caramel malts. Flavors are up front citrus hops and caramel malts with bittering piney hops to the rear and a solid malt backbone with fresh sweet bread flavors. Finish is lightly dry and clean with a bittering hops aftertaste that is pleasant. The sweet malts really accentuate this IPA which, as some have pointed out is closer to a DIPA. I am NOT an IPA lover, yet this is exceptional and I will purchase more for Christmas gifts to some of my hoppy friends.

Cheers

Horny Goat Wisconzin IPA has a thin, white head, fairly prominent lacing, a hazy, orange appearance, lots of bubbles, and tiny, brown sediment visible, top to bottom. Aroma is of piney, citrus, hop resin and a decent amount of white bread. Taste is the same, with strong, but not harsh, hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and Horny Goat Wisconzin IPA finishes mostly dry and rather drinkable. I did not pick up any grapes, in either the aroma or taste, but I still found it delicious.
