smells uber hoppy with lots of lemon smell. you can smell the alcohol content which weighs in at 7+ %.

pours slightly a amber/gold body white lumpy very retentive head with lots of lace on the glass from a 1 pint and 6 ounce .

lots of hops and lemon lime a slight alcohol burn gives it a very refreshing feel . here’s also some nutty flavors maybe cashews or pistachio I can’t decide, but its good.

Had on DRAFT at brewery and later via a growler SHERM1016 and I acquired....Poured from this growler...lots and lots of hops...Bright yellow color with white head. Decent balance of malt and hops....lots of pine / citrus in taste and finish. Tasty. This is a local beer, to us, and we are enjoying watching the GLBC folks grow...

On tap at the Old Fashioned in Madison. First beer and first review for this brewery.
Served in a standard shakers pint glass. Slightly hazy yellow gold. Served with a small, creamy, but very stable off white head lots of lacing. Aroma is pleasant, but light. Mostly citrus and pine. Grapefruit. Taste is similar. Pine and grapefruit dominate, but feels a bit watery. Earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Moderately astringent bitterness seems out of place.
A decent first beer. Respectable everyday drinker presumably brewed for the hoards of tourists in the Lake Geneva area.

A: Very hazy orange copper, unable to see through it, with a 1-2 finger white head floating on top. Nice lacing on my Duvel tulip. The bottom of the bottle reveals many floaties for this unfiltered IPA.

S: A very subdued aroma. Faint floral, citrus, more malt.

T: Surprisingly there is a big wave of bitter and citrus followed by a nice sweet malt. Finish is pine bitterness. I did not expect this because of the faint nose. Hint of onion like flavor? The more I drink this, the more I enjoy it.

M: Mouth feel is where it should be on an IPA. This one has nice carbonation and a lighter feel with a slight stickiness and overall dryness.

O: I picked this one up out of curiosity because it is a local micro brew that just began bottling their beers. At $4-$5 a bomber it is one I will pick up from time to time as long as I know it is fresh. The bottle was not dated. It is a slightly above average, yet very drinkable IPA that will be nice to have around this summer. I recommend it given it's price.

Pours hazed golden with a thin head that lasts. Some lacing sticks.

The smell of citrus and herbal/spicy hops come through as strong as the bready, caramel-ish malt. Some black pepper from the alcohol mixes in. Mild, but pleasant overall.

The taste is of herbal/floral spicing - with a touch of citrus. Caramel and bready/grainy malt balance it. Alcohol is quite noticeable, though not overbearing, in the finish.

The texture is slightly watery, but bitter taste is not washed out.

It's a more "balanced"/more mild IPA, but still enjoyable. Pretty easy to drink despite some heat from the alcohol. Overall, a pretty solid take on a standard American IPA.
