Poured from a 12 oz (355m l) bottle into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint glass (June 21, 2010). "BOTTLED ON 20APR11" is stamped onto the neck of the bottle.
Eyes: Pours an orange copper color, with significant haze. The thick particulate is suspended in unmoving clusters within the glass. A fluffy off-white head leaves some significant lacing.
Nose: A surprise that there isn't more of the orange character on the nose. That's not to say there isn't orange present, but certainly not enough to distinguish it from other citrusy IPAs out there. It's not a great hop profile, but good enough to pique my interest.
Tongue: The orange rind is subtly identifiable here, and it blends well with the hop punch, which has complementary pine and grapefruit notes.
Mouth: Just a tad too thick for my liking, but the carbonation balances this.
Libation: Thankfully the flavor delivers more than the nose promises. An interesting and drinkable IPA if not a great version of the style.

Another gift from a friend that make an annual pilgrimage to WI.
A: A light cooper colored beer with an orange hue. Produces a good head stand on pour. The off-white head is made of cream bubbles with a decent retention time when given a somewhat aggressive pour.
S: A medium strength aroma of crystal malt and citrus hops. There is a moderate fruit ester and a faint diacetyl making me think the yeast is more English than American.
T: A medium-strong citrus hops flavor and a medium-strong hops bitterness along with a medium malt sweetness dominate. There is a far amount of orange esters that seem part hop part yeast derived. The balance is fairly bitter. The finish is off-dry with an aftertaste of oranges and hops bitterness.
M: A medium bodied beer with a medium-strong carbonation. Medium creaminess.
O: A decent IPA with a good balance of hops and malts hat isn't overly bitter, not that it would be bad thing. There
