There are a lot of amazing IPAs on the market and this beer does not challenge the top tier. However, it is a great representation of the style and worthy of honorable mention in the space. Wild River has a great flavor which is hop forward and light on malt -- solidly on the grapefruit/citrus side of the IPA crowd. The mouthfeel is good, not great; it's a bit light on the tongue. The bitterness is not massive but it is strong enough to support the beer and it ends with a solid finish. This is a very good beer and worthy of a try -- especially in Wisconsin.

Pours copper with a creamy head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is of citric fruits - especially grapefruit - with herbal notes. Robust hop aroma.

The taste is of citric fruits and herbal notes, balanced by a touch of caramel. It has a bitter, dry finish. Hops linger through aftertaste.

It has a chewy, smooth body.

This is a hop delight! Just enough malt to give it a backbone, the hops truly shine here! A very well-made American IPA!
