Purchased in a six-pack of 12 oz. bottles at Woodman's in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. I was attracted by the new retro-designed packaging recently adopted by Milwaukee Brewing Company.


I am not sure if this is the same recipe as Milwaukee Brewing's old IPA brand, but this incarnation tastes better than the earlier version that I recall.


When poured into a tulip glass this IPA produces a massive foamy head and the beer itself appears a deep, clear amber color.


Straight from the fridge it smells rather malty and bread-like with surprisingly little citrus or sharpness of an American IPA than I expected. With a rise in the beer's temperature a floral, citrus note comes through, meeting my expectations of the style.


The taste is fresh, sharp and hoppy, with a spicy, dry finish. This beer is a refreshing, delicious, and worthy of putting into my rotation of "go-to" beers to bring to holiday parties and summer cook-outs. As this brew warms toward room temperature it takes on a nicely balanced flavor profile of malt-versus hops.


The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth and would be a prime candidate to introduce the uninitiated to the world of American India Pale Ales.


Hop Happy is a very agreeable beer at an affordable price. Try some tonight.
