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.

Here's another off the radar IPA for me. Pours a dark orange, amber with a little white head that increases as it sits. Loads of lacing and noticeably unfiltered! Smell from the bottle is nice. Fairly stable throughout. Taste isn't spectacular, but good nonetheless. Very good hop character and balance! Glad I stumbled upon this one!
