4.05/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle, purchased locally, ($7.99/6). Bottled week #1 of December, case marked 12/09/11, 23 days ago. Poured into tulip glass.

(Review updated on 2/26/12. 12 oz. bottle ($8.99/6). Bottled early in Feb., case marked 2/9/12, 17 days ago).

A: Very cloudy amber, with 1"+ off-white head that drops slowly and leaves a consistent thin layer of lacing. No effervescence is visible.

S: Pine, citrus & tropical fruit, malt.

T: Sharp pine & fruit, then malt, followed by moderate bitterness.

M: Medium body and moderate carbonation; very smooth; neutral finish.

O: Extremely balanced; a tasty, highly drinkable, mid-range IPA by one of Wisconsin's top breweries.

note: Lakefront is well worth a visit, especially for a Friday tour, followed by a polka-music-accompanied fish fry in their expansive beer hall; on the west bank of the Milwaukee River, just north of downtown.

3.64/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured in a pint glass from 12oz bottle

Appearance: Golden brown, almost orange in the light. Very thing head remains after the pour.

Smell: Floral hops and a slight citrus hop in the background

Taste: Very mild and sweet malt on the tongue, of biscuit and caramel. Light bitterness on the tongue but after swallowing the bitterness lingers, very pleasantly. Almost a little too weak and watery for my taste. Carbonation is just right and the hop flavor is suttle, but well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Lacking what I was looking for, I had this on tap in Milwaukee and remembered more body and the desire to finish my pint quickly! This didn't have the same affect, very thin with a watered-down mix.

Not a bad IPA, from my opinion it was much better on tap. Definitely a good beer to have around and for the price at my local craft brew shop I don't regret grabbing this one.

I enjoy the hoppy brews ... so this evening I cracked open this BIG EYE P A (part of a personal 6-pk from Total Wine).

Refreshing taste ... slightly fruity. Sweet aroma. Very smooth, not overpowering with the hops. Less bitter than I expected. Thumbs up.
