- Bot. may. consumed july.

A: Bright sunset orange exit from the bottle sits darkly in the vessel with a raging, explosive sense of effervesce. Foamy-cottage cheese textured head is straw-beige with a strong sense of retnetion. Lace coverage is low and weakly bonding.

S: Aroma of bright citrusy orange hopping that is fresh and juicy with a squeeze of fresh lemon as well.

T: Flavor is crystal malt sweetness meeting a fresh wet kiss of lemon and semi-dry orange citrus. Some fresh grapefruit appears mid-palate with a hint of lime. Toasted warm sweetness with a gentle dry citrus hop warming on the back end.

M: Good vibe of carbonation, nice maltiness wit a touch of oily feel. A nice sting of citrus-lime hops come off the tongue with a sharp and well pronounced standing.

O: Overall leaves a nice lingering semi-dry toasted grain and citrus calling card long after the swallow. Nice transistion of fresh wet hop character in the front goes to a light dry not over the top dry finish. Solid level of ibus, none to aggressive but still very appreciable, while the alcohol feels a bit higher then advertised. Good consuming rate.

Pretty dark amber hue on this one. Nice flavor on this one. Pine-y resin with a mostly earthy (in a more vibrant kind of way) tone to all of it. Very smooth feel to things. This strikes me as a somewhat east coast interpretation of an ipa. Which seems slightly unusual coming out of Wisconsin. (I want to say it seems reminiscent of Double Simcoe.) A nice drinker. This would probably be good on cask.
