One of my favorite beers I've had from Wisconsin. Reminds me of some of the great IIPAs from the west coast. The bitterness of the hops are nicely balanced with the touch of honey, leaving a nice bittery creamy feel and taste.

Pours slightly hazed amber with a thin head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of pine, citrus, caramelized biscuit.

The taste is of pine/resin with a touch of aspirin-like bitterness. Honey and caramel take some of the edge off the bitterness to make it more rounded. Sharp alcohol bite in the finish.

It is raw/astringent/boozy, though there is an initial creaminess to it. I believe more of a malt support would give it the body it really needs and smooth it out, but wouldn't want it to lose the hop character. I'm not a brewer, it's just an idea. It could be fuller and smoother.

A big DIPA. Interesting. Certainly hoppy with a strong pine character. Alcohol is noticeable. I was wavering between 3.5 and 3.75 for the overall - decided to go with the latter because for those looking for a more raw, piney, boozy DIPA it's one to choose.

Hazy honey in color, with a fluffy white head that holds for a bit. Plenty of lacing stays behind.

Smell is serious hops, tons of them. Floral and bitter hops, PINE DOMINANT, plus malty goodness, dark fruits, citrus, wonderful.

In the mouth the bitterness is all hop presence, citrus and pine. Coming in timidly is a faint malty backbone that tries to balance the sharp hops. A bit of sweetness is insistent throughout the sip, with the hop character changing along the way.

Mouthfeel is fully carbonated, and a slick taste bud experience. Lacing sticks around to keep it looking and feeling great.

Sadly, I'm not getting the honey, at all.
