Reviewed from notes. On tap in Madison - August 2009.

Pours a moderate copper coloring with a tiny half-finger head on the initial pour. This quickly recedes and doesn't really leave much of any lacing behind. The nose is really light citrus hops with a bit of toffee backing it up.

The taste isn't much better than the nose. No off flavors, there just really isn't much going on. The hops are really light and there is just a bit of light bread in the background. The mouthfeel is decent with a medium body and a smooth character. Drinks fairly well for what it is, but not exactly what I would call an IPA.

Served in an imp pint glass. Served with a very large off-white head that slowly reduces down to a good half inch of creamy foam. Beer itself is a dark, clear amber in color. This is a mighty fine looking beer. Aroma is of citrus and caramel
Malts. Flavor is a let down: malty, but not too malty, without a lot of hops. Caramel and some light pine is about all I'm getting Pitt this beer. Medium bodied; appropriate carbonation, mild to moderate bitterness. Fairly uninteresting, yet still drinkable. A decent beer, but just a slightly above average IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 4

A - Orange yellow wit a tight foam head that left sheets on the side throughout consumption.

S - Some resin and pine finish, with some citrus hops. Malts are indeed a bit malty.

T - A sweet and hoppy IPA with a big of a sugary taste. Nice pine and resin hops add the appropriate bitterness to this. Pretty solid.

M - Was too flat and detracted from the taste.

D - Pretty decent beer that I can drink fairly happily.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the Madison brewpub.

Another entry in my pre-interview extravaganza. It pours a clear pale copper-amber topped by around a finger of white micro-foam. The nose comprises flowers, sour cream, light caramel, and light hot cinnamon. The taste holds notes of light caramel, light grapefruit, and a smattering of mixed greens. The body is on the heavier side of light, with a light carbonation and a decidedly wet feel. Overall, a decent IPA, nothing near special, but unoffensive enough to quaff regularly enough.
