Pours a big, dense, resiny head that has great persistence and collapses into a sloppy puff of lacing. Citrus dominates the nose immediately. Lustrous, copper color. Starts off with big grapefruit hoppiness with a touch of pine sap resin, build into a floral character as a good medium bitterness hits. As this peaks, it becomes citrus rind. The finish is lingering hop resin, but not too much bitterness. A great, silky mouthfeel.

This is a really nice IPA. I love Wisconsin/Midwest IPA's like this one because they really are hoppy, but they de-emphasize that lingering bitterness. I LOVE when a brewer understands that more IBU's does NOT mean it will be more awesome.
Everything you want from the hops, but none of the lingering bitterness that ruins your palate.

I had this with a 6-year Wisconsin cheddar. The combination was sublime. The refined nature of this IPA pairs perfectly with such an old cheddar; This IPA is more balanced than you'd expect, just as the cheddar is.
