look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Got this as part of my Beer of the Month club, 12 oz bottle with no freshness date that I could find, poured into a pint glass

A—pours light copper, slightly hazed with a 1 inch bone white cloud like head that slowly fades down to a thin sheet, laces thick and plentiful

S—citrus is dominate with a hint of sweetness, mild grapefruit and lemon in the nose

T—not as strong as the smell, the flavor is citrus, but really mild, some acidic taste that takes away from the enjoyment

M—a slight bit chalky, light bodied, good carbonation

D—not bad, but not great. It’ll do in a pinch.

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.

4.26/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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!

3.84/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

The paler side of orange, this beer is translucent but not transparent, with some chill haze and maybe even some particulate hop matter floating around. There is a soft, billowy, white cloud of foam that recedes, lacing the glass and ringing the beer surface,

American hops, all the way, in the nose. Pine and Citrus.

Taste: If you like chinook, this is going to register as a good balanced beer. If you find chinook a bit strong, maybe even obnoxious, this beer will not change your opinion.
