Date stamp indicates bottled on 15th April 2011. Consumed on May 12th. Reviewed from notes, please pardon the brevity.
A. Amber-Orange shading without murkiness. Head subsides to a nice little foam layer.
S. I get hit with loads of orange peel and floral tones.
T. Again, orange peel and floral hops, also grassy notes.
M. I can't find anything to complain about here. Just the right level of carbonation and thickness I like in an IPA.
The memorable feature of this beer for me was the very high level of orange peel flavor/aroma compared to other IPAs I've had before. The "Scurvy" name of the brew was probably chosen ironically because of this.

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
