Sent to me by my Wisconsin Nephew (NFC Championship 2015 bet... GO HAWKS!) I liked this beer so much it inspired me to sign up and start rating beers ... Here I go;
Look; Yellowish with a white head.
Smell; Not overly prominent... but citrus is there
Taste: this is where it took off for me. The citrus was more orange like (as opposed to grapefruit like) The hops were there.. and then they were gone... only to come back at the finish.
Mouth feel; For this beer, it seemed like the perfect amount of carbonation(my first 5 on the rating scale)
Overall; Very interesting beer wish I had a few more of em !

This is kind of a biased rating because it wasn't close to fresh. I like to remember what I have had so I gave the ratings anyway.

High clarity, color on the citrine side of amber. Strong foam on the pour the recedes to lace the glass. Initially, I smell and taste the hops. Citrusy, with a bit of astringency. In a sip or two, I am accustomed to hops and the malt begins to shine. There is some sweetness and toastiness, and as I drain the glass, toasty recedes and something like chocolate takes its place. Did they use a bit of chocolate malt to increase color?

Tasted like a malt heavy piece of wet cardboard. Hopefully the just oversparged this batch.
