I hate to bash a Capital beer but this stuff is really awful. I'm not sure what they were going for on this one but I couldn't get past 2 sips.

L - Medium orangish-yellow. Cloudy. Tall white head. Pretty persistent.
S - Hops prominent, but not especially strong.. A little underlying malt sweetness. Bread and grapefruit, maybe something tropical.
T - Hoppier than I thought. Resiny grapefruit mild sweet malt. Unusual spiciness - coriander it would appear.

Served from the can in a tumbler at Ranalli's.

Dunno how this bachelor party made its way to this random Wisconsin-centric bar, but who am I to argue here, right? Anyway, this stuff pours a cloudy brass topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises bright flowers, wet grass, greens, and a hint of cardamom. The taste brings in more of the same, then, quite unfortunately, things take a sudden and direct turn toward a kale- and cabbage-filled path, the former taking preeminence. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, this probably could have been a decent "white IPA", but the strange and thoroughly bitter vegetable character does a massive disservice.
