This poured out as a nice looking pale yellow color with a foamy bright white head on top. The retention and lacing were both quite impressive on this beer. The smell of the beer is a bit on the subtle side, I would say they didn't dry hop this beer at all, so the hoppy aroma that an IPA should/might have isn't really there. If you breathe in deep you can pick up some fruity citrus notes but this is fairly malty on the nose. The taste is pretty simple, there is a good malt base with some resiny hops in the finish. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth, light bodied and very drinkable. Overall it's a good IPA, glad I got to try it fresh. I'd say it's worth trying.

Capital Mutiny IPA, Capital Brewery, Middleton, WI. Their first IPA? I think so.

Clear, golden / light amber hue, beautiful head of ivory foam. Nice looking.

Aroma: good'n'hoppy, plenty of citrus, lemon zest, lime spritz, some piney notes. Perfectly pleasant.

Taste: great hop bite up front, with plenty of juicy malt behind it. Some bitterness pounces the palate, but malt never stays far behind. Tasty stuff. Bright citrus fruit flavors, medium bitterness, light, lingering finish.

Very nice India Pale Ale. I could drink this one again and again.
Did not like their Double IPA at all, but this one is A-okay.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours hazed golden to amber with a head that descends to a lasting thin cover. Strands of lacing stick.

The smell is of smoked pine, toffee and some citrus.

The taste is of bittering citrus, tobacco-ish, piney hops that stay a hair ahead of the sweet, balancing, toffee-ish malt. Some alcohol warmth shows in the dry finish.

It is smooth, somewhat juicy, with a medium body.

I wouldn't say it's "outstanding", but would say it's "good to very good". A piney/citrusy IPA with a firm malt backbone. It is a solid representation of a highly competitive style.

Yep, they are putting it in the CAN now and The CANQuest (TM) was delighted to score some at Riley's Wines of the World druing the annual visit to Madison, WI for the Great Taste of the Midwest!

From the CAN: "It's Time for a MUTINY!"

A loud Crack followed by an inverted Glug and I was off and running. I created two-plus fingers of dense, foamy French Vanilla-colored head from my pour. Color was a deep-gold with NE-quality clarity and right away, King Midas, Croesus and Mammon were all fighting for a taste (SRM = 6). Nose was really pine-y and while the Milwaukee version seemed to be a little off, this seemed like it was going to be right up my alley. Mouthfeel was better than average, not quite full, but approaching it. The pine of the hops was the centerpiece on this one and while there was certainly malt present, it was not going to be enough for the faint of heart. Sticky lacing began to appear with every draught from my glass. Finish was semi-dry and frankly very tasty. I ran through it much more quickly than I realized. I could have drank at least one more of that one.

The Mutiny IPA was one of the best offerings at the Dells resort where we are staying. The beer poured a clear orangish with white head that left some lacing. The scent had a nice citrus base. The taste was a battle between bitterness and malt with the malt being slightly sweet. In the end the beer was ok because it just didnt seem balanced. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a good beer and worth a try.

A-Oak colored....minimal head

S-Floral and piney...fresh scent...not an overwhelming scent though....a bit perfumey....different than most but enjoyable to smell...

T-Again a bit different....heavy pine notes...dry....oily....

M-Finishes pretty dry....medium to high medium bodied...

O-Bought this because it was a 12 pack of cans for about $12...a good value in my opinion after drinking it...not my personal favorite flavor style for an IPA (I like the fruity/citrus bombs) but this is good for what it is and reminds me of several IPA's I had while in San Diego so I would say it is loosely in the West Coast IPA territory....closer to that than East Coast....Malt is fine but never strong...If a person was IPA hunting in the midwest it would be tough top a 12er of this (piney IPA) for $12 and a 12er of Summit Saga (fruit forward IPA) for $12...$25 for a case of great drinking but different IPA's...what's a case of Bud run these days...$20??? I rest my case...

Pour is dark golden amber with a small amount of light tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose is incredibly sweet, sugary caramel, a bit herbal in the hops but light. Taste is stale malt, sweet, sugary, faint herbal tea hop. Syrupy body, moderate carbonation.

A-Clear amber orange, not much carbonation, one finger head.

S-Malt. More malt. Lots of malt. Not real citrus or any other flavor.

T-Very malty. This weird spice like note. Apples, not bitterness awful balance.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation, no hop bite.

O-One of the worst IPAs I've had. And it shouldn't have been that old based on when I had.
