Comes in that mixture of orange and amber, 1/2" white head, drops all kind of C hops in the nose.

Good pale ale, seems to be made in the vein of SNPA, never a bad thing to model your pale ale off of, all that caramel melding with the Cascade hop. Enjoyable and like a lot of other good caramel forward without the sweetness beers around the country.

Picked this up on my Wisco beer run. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a nice honey gold with a 1 finger bone white head. Good foamy head leaves nice lacing and impressive retention.

S: Clove, hops, citrus, floral, some bread.

T: A nice pale ale. It has the nice hop bitterness mixed in with the floral and sweet citrus tastes. A well balanced beer that is pleasant to drink.

M: Good mouth coating and aftertaste.

Thanks to sonoma01 for the extra.

Pours a fairly clear gold with a 1 finger creamy white head. A touch of lacing down the glass.

Aroma: A light citrus hop bite with some bready kind of cheap grainy smelling malt.

Starts off with a touch of citrus. A bit too much caramel/bread malt in the middle. Slight fruit esters as well. Finishes with a touch of earthy hops and plenty of astringency.

Mouthfeel and carb are good.

Eh it's drinkable, but I wouldn't recommend it. I could definitely put down a few of these if it was around, but wouldn't really seek it out.

Once again a trade has spurred me to rate this one.

Poured into my pint glass the beer is a mostly clear amber golden hue. The off white head reaches about two fingers and slowly fades to leave a solid lace ring.

The aroma is sweet pale malt, light wheat crakers and a touch of citrus hops. Nothing real strong but not offensive at all.

The flavor is rather muted. What is there is mostly light malt and a bit of citrus bitterness. The finish is rather dry and sour. A slight metallic character comes through on the finish.

Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation.

Overall a less than stellar beer. I would love to for once in my life be wowed by a beer brewed in Milwaukee. Today is not that day.

Thanks goes out to beerwolf77 for this brew.

Pours a nice cloudy golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger creamy/fizzy off-white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malts, and a nice little citrus note. The taste is hoppy, malty, a little sweetness, with some nice citrus note. Medium body. Drinkable, this one surprised me, pretty good.
