Pours a cloudy amber wheat color with an inch of pale cream head that falls to about an eighth of an inch but has legs and leaves some nice cling. The bouquet is very inviting: citrus, pine, and herbal/grass hop notes are all there, with a healthy caramel malt presence. The taste is a hop parade from start to finish. Pronounced pine, citrus rind, and grassy flavors are balanced carefully above a slightly toasted malt undercurrent. Prominent hop bitterness--crisp and clean--closes things. The feel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied, with acidic brightness and nice effervescence.
This is a big, bold, well-put-together IPA that's loaded with hop flavor and deftly balanced. Probably the best example of an American IPA out of the Midwest that I've tried. Well worth going out of your way to try, especially if you can get it on tap.

Finally getting around to reviewing. The beer pours a mildly hazy copper amber with a thick head that settles to a thick collared ring. Nice lacing too.
Good scent of orange and grapefruit. Well done. A hint of caramel as well, but mostly all about the hops. Taste is similar with plenty of grapefruit. The caramel sweetness finishes with a crisp firm bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a great level of carbonation that comes off very well. Mostly dry finish, but the caramel sweetness lingers.
Great all around IPA that may not have the bells and whistles of today's over amped IBUs or latest hop cultivar, but comes together very well.
