I got a bottle of this off the single shelf at Binnys in Montgomery, IL. The scent had faint dank fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with ripe citrus peel presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/19/2018. Pours fairly hazy deep golden orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of huge red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, light pepper, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nutty, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, light pepper, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nutty, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, woody, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nutty, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.5%. Overall this is a fantastic IPA! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish, not aggressive. Feels like a lot of Centennial/Amarillo. Very juicy and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great bready Munich malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on classic tasting Midwest style example.

Picked up a 12 oz single bottle at Binny’s. Looks like an Oktoberfest, more amber than golden. Smell is nutty. it’s unique for an IPA. I’m intrigued.

Taste follows that nutty smell, but different than say a brown ale since it’s dry and bitter. It has a very soft mouthfeel for the style. Not really sure what the style is as it’s listed as an APA here, but the bottle says IPA. I’ll take the latter as that’s what the brewer intended.

I enjoyed this one, it’s a bit different, which makes it interesting.

An aggressive pour reveals a golden-tinged brown body with a tan head. The nose has a significant caramalt component, and there’s also a fruity hop presence.

The caramalt is also prominent on the taste, but the fruity hop flavors are bright enough to more than balance this out. It’s sorta a red IPA, but it’s definitely brighter than usual for that style. A nice fall IPA to sip and enjoy.

Fresh growler poured into pint glass

Clear copper finger, trace head

Centennial hops over malt base taste

Slight hop linger, low low sudsing

Good beer
