look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazed brown with a pinky of beige head. Nice lacing, above average head retention

S: Catty, woody,

T: Follows the nose, fairly malty up front, along with dryness. Malty sweetness & dryness, herbal bitterness as this warms. Finishes with woody hops, dryness, and a little leafy hops as well

MF: Medium body, restrained carbonation, pretty good balance

Drinks alright, not a great IPA, but certainly worth a try

Decent brew available to home town folks currently for $5.98 for a four pack of 16 oz. Equal balance b/t malt & hops, w the nod to the malt. Overall a solid brew by Milw Brewing

Pours a nice dark amber color. Great look for a beer. Has the aroma of citrus and pine although it also smells of rubbing alcohol to me slightly. The taste is dull and rolls of the tongue at a highly carbonated rate.

= This barely tastes like an IPA to me. Weak on the hop flavor with a bit of malt. Not nearly the bitterness I'd expect from this kind of beer. Something I'll push to the side next time.

Looks and smells yeasty in a good way. Tropical nose but heavy malty mouthfeel and thick, sweet (cloying) finish. Cute can graphics - well executed.

Nice looking beer. Deep amber color, nice clarity, and two fingers of white head. The nose is minimal. Some citrus and malty sweetness. Taste has citrus, some tropical fruit, and a heavy malt body. Medium body, moderate-high carbonation. Lingering bitterness and slight lingering cloyingness.
