3.8/5 rDev +10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a somewhat cloudy orange-amber color. The tall head has a burnt orange tint and a densely foamy texture. Retention is good, and some pleasant rings and webs of lacing stick to the glass.
S: Some pale and caramel malt aroma up front before a rather vibrant hop aroma takes over, with substantial citric (especially orange), fruity, and resiny character. A tangy bit of esters from the yeast is detectable.
T: Lightly grainy and moderately sweet maltiness up front, with a bit of caramel flavor. Hop bitterness is initially medium, with a nice, vibrant hop flavor. Citric and resiny notes are most prominent, with some fruity and floral undertones. There is a very faint tartness before a mild alcoholic punch at the finish, which also becomes increasingly bitter.
M: Fairly full bodied. Carbonation is fine and smooth. The finish becomes dry due to the hop bitterness, and a bit of alcohol warmth is detectable.
D: This is an enjoyable, if somewhat heavy, IPA. I like the hop bill, and it also works well with the malt bill. The body is a little heftier than I'd like, and the bitterness, while enjoyable, isn't as clean as in some other IPAs. These aren't bad things, but together they add up to create some rough edges.

Nitro always makes a nice pour. Bright orange and cascading, settling carbonation. It leaves a frothy off white head with excellent retention.
Pleasant but weak aromas if citrus and lilac. Toasted crackers.
The flavor has a little more punch, again with a nice balance of citrus and floral notes. A little pine in the back end. Bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel on nitro is out of this world. Soft and creamy.
I've had this bottled and it's mediocre. On nitro it's very good.
At the Milwaukee brewpub.

One pint bottle:
Pours deep golden with a thick white head that settles to a lasting cover. Broken rings of lacing stick.
The smell is medicinal/herbal, citric and slightly piney.
The taste is of a general hop bitterness with a firm sweet malt backbone. Grapefruit bitterness lends dryness in the finish.
It has a medium body.
A competently made, standard American IPA.
