3.79/5 rDev -6.9%
Slightly hazy amber color with a finger of off white head. There's a little spotty lacing.
It has the smell of a balanced ipa. Citrus and bread. A touch of caramel.
It has a little too much of the bready malt for my liking. Nice orange and grapefruit hop profile.
Mouthfeel is soft, if not a little light on the carbonation.
A good ipa and has more balance than most.

Beautiful golden colored IPA with nice amount of carbonation and great citrus IPA taste. My only complaint is that it is a little light in the mouthfeel category, but sometimes that's even a good thing. When the brewery starts bottling soon this will be a staple in my fridge. Fantastic beer.

On tap at Brickhouse BBQ.
A. Pours an unattractive burnt caramel with a small white head.
S. Aroma brings sticky citrus, vanilla, caramel malt, toasted grain, pine.
T. Taste brings brown bread, tangerine, grassy resin, bready with sweet citrus.
M. Light-bodied with light carbonation.
O. A hoppy IPA in the American vein, but with a bit of a malty English character. Not bad.

Had on tap at the brewery in snifter. Is this the IPA I've been dreaming of finding in Madison?
A - Beautiful light golden orange color with a nice fluffy white 2 finger head that slowly falls into a thin ring that clings to the glass. Lacing paints the glass in a delicate white web.
S - The smell, oh that wonderful smell. The Citra dominates the aroma. It is like I am standing in a tropical grove of oranges, pineapples, grapefruit, and mango. Floral, pine, and soft sweet honey biscuit round out a magnificent and transcending aroma.
T - Wow! My taste buds are overcome with joy as waves of tropical fruits and citrus pummel my palate. Absolutely fantastic taste is citrus, pineapples and mangoes. A touch of sweet honey biscuit round it out. A bit of slight grapefruit and pine bitter in the finish.
M - Zippy carbonation with oily hop residue left on the tongue make it a fantasy to drink.
Finally an amazing Citra hopped IPA that I have been waiting for in Madison. Absolute dream beer. The 3 hops used for amazing taste are Citra, Galena, and Cluster. Big citrus flavor. Great job Karben4. Look forward to more of you beers! Calling all Madison BA's who want Citra, this is the IPA for you!
