On-tap at Three Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours bright copper. The head becomes wispy. Minimal vanishing lace. Not the greatest head or lacing, but very nice color.

The smell is of caramel with leather and a hint of orange.

The taste is of sweet caramel, leather, (hint of wet tobacco?) and wood. Sweet, but does have a bitter touch in the finish.

Full-bodied and chewy, it is smooth. Alcohol well-covered.

A unique DIPA. Personally, I would consider it an American Strong Ale because it doesn't have the modern DIPA's citric/piney character very strongly. It is sweet-leaning, but bitterness does come through. An interesting, pleasant brew!

This is an ok IPA....it leans more towards and English style than West Coast style....so all you pine and citrus hop heads should be mindful. The beer pours a clear copper with thin white head that is not leaving a lace. The scent is subtle maybe some hints of bitterness. The taste is very bitter but balanced nicely with sweeter malt. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with subtle carbonation. Overall its ok....glad to have tied it.

Maltier than I'd hoped, didn't stand out.
