3.94/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

20% haze, mostly transparent golden blonde color, with a 3 finger off-white head that leaves tons of lace behind.

Super dank aromas, with a hint of pine, and a little arm pit and jock (Packers locker room?).

The dank qualities come through in the flavor, but it doesn't weigh down the rest of the flavor - a very clean, crisp pine flavor comes through as well and follows through to the finish. Some light caramel notes poke in and out.

Feel is clean all the way to the bank. Real crisp, but medium bodied, and a semi-dry finish.

Overall, Green 19 impressed me. Super clean and crisp, two very strong suits to this beer that make it easy to drink and very enjoyable.

4.39/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Rich orange, mostly clear (you can see it wants to be), thin-er head, but lacing sticks around. (should be good protein)

Aroma - Really fantastic out of the bottle. Honest, american hops aroma, just like you want. Don't wait though, two minutes in: gone.

Taste - Initial flavor is a really nice, balanced malt backbone. But then the hops start lining up for roll call! Not as heavy as some hop forward IPAs, but rather as if they are meant to be staggered. One after another chime in and say 'Here I am!'. Really great complex, multi-layered, hop flavor. There's a really good but of lighter malt to balance this all out. Really feels like an intense Pale Ale, with how its so well balanced. Maybe i've had too many IPAs today and my tongue is fried. Nah, no way. This thing has smooth IPA written all over it.

Mouthfeel -
Carbonation is awesome. Typical of a small brewery who gets it. What it might miss (just a scotche) in initial head, it makes up for in excellent longevity. Malt is really good to balance the excellent hop flavor profile.

Overall -
The typical assertiveness of a strong IPA hop bill is well managed by an equally strong, yet light in body, malt bill. The well rounded hops lend well to the lighter SRM of malt. Overall, a really top notch IPA, especially if you like them balanced.

I really like this local Wisconsin beer. Give it a try.

I get far less bitterness from this than some as it presents a nice touch of citrus. A little grapefruit, tangerines, orange, and honey. There is a bit of pine and resin but it's subtle and tasty. The malt is lightly sweet but substantial. It's an overall great beer.

Clear amber with minimal head that quickly dissipated to a thin film. Some spotty lacing is left down the glass. Outstanding hop aroma coming from this beer. It is grassy, citrus, and a even a hint of tropical fruit. The flavor is also very good with a big dose of citrus and grass. Bitterness is moderate. Malt gives a little toasted flavor. Finishes dry and clean. Medium body and moderately carbonated. A really enjoyable IPA that excels where it really matters.

Pous a soft, soapy white head that has nice persistence and laces readily. Absolutely amazing, bright aroma of citrusy hops. Brilliant, clear golden color with a touch of amber. Starts with a surprising hop bitterness; sticky hop resin and pine sap laid upon citrus rind. The pine subsides a bit and a flash of sweet malt arrives before the citrus rind comes through, lingering into the finish.

Wow, this is lovely. It's beautiful and amazingly aromatic. It's very hoppy, and it's right on the border of too bitter for my taste, but it doesn't cross that line. Just wonderful. Glad I have a whole six pack of this!

Copper-ish pour, very clear. Two fingers of white head and linger, leaving some lacing down the glass. Nose is a lot of citrus, grapefruit, a little spiciness. The flavor follows, juicy, hoppy goodness. Bitter, but not aggressively so for an IPA. Body is medium, extremely smooth for the style. Light-moderate carbonation. Dry finish. My first offering from Titletown and I'm very impressed.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Very solid offering. The taste and feel was a little weak for my preference though. The smell was fantastic; very hoppy and citrusy up front which got the taste buds excited for a big bitter grapefruit smack in the face. The taste did not live up to the smell... it was like seeing a fabulous movie trailer and then later realizing all the good scenes were in the preview. The taste wasn't bad, but very moderate for an IPA. I think if this were more bitter and citrusy it would have been a home run. Certainly a fun beer and definitely worth trying. This is in the minor leagues compared to a Psuedo Sue, Todd, ZD. But still a fun and refreshing beer.

poured 12oz bottle into snifter.

A clear bronze color with a 1.5 finger off white head. Fades slowly into collar and leaves behind some swaths of lacing. Aroma is of spicy and citrus hops along with a nice biscuit aroma. Some sweet caramel mingles with the hops. Flavor is much the same, but with some noticeable pine bitterness and leafy herbs. A medium body with an oily finish. Solid, simple, and easy to drink.

Yet another top-notch IPA from a relatively new Wisconsin brewery. As a Packer fan, the name resonates with me (Green 19, set, hut! is burned into my memory). Genius on the part of whoever came up with that. Nostalgia aside, the hops are fantastically balanced, with a nice carbonation and feel that is on a level with some of the best nationally available brews. A very pleasant surprise.

12oz bottle. Served in a snifter.

Pours a dark copper body, one finger white head, good retention, nice film, basic lacing. Smells of bread, citrus, pine, a bit of leafs and herbs, a bit of honey. Flavour is citrus, bread, caramel, a bit of herbal astringency. Solid, classic and straightforward. Mouthfeel is medium-lower bodied, good carbonation, a bit sticky on the finish with a mild-moderate herbal and grapefruit bitterness. Overall, a pretty decent IPA that actually drinks nicely; the herbal bitterness is a different take on the typical Wisconsin IPA.

On-tap at 3 Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours bright copper with a thin, lasting white head. Web-like lacing sticks.

The smell is of robust citrus with spicy herbs.

The upfront citrus blends with sweet malt (pale and caramel I am guessing from the malt character). Wonderful balance between hops and malt. Finishes with a drying herbal bitterness.

It has a chewy, smooth medium body.

Nicely well-done, hop-forward, but with a rich malty backbone. Easy-drinking and enjoyable!

Went to Title Town brewing while in GB on a trip. Had the IPA after I had the Stout( see stout review)
Wonderful Citra and cascade hops notes with 55 ibu it is a pleasant IPA. Head fades quick but leaves a thin layer till the end lacing is also very nice.
A very drinkable IPA near the top on my IPA list. Wish I could get it back in Pitt.

Very good IPA beer. Had it for the first time on Saturday. Could taste the Citra and Cascade hops (Citrus and floral flavor) and Chinook hops (Piney flavor). The color consisted of a copper color, with an off white foam head that lasts until the end. Very refreshing and enjoyable beer. Beer is very popular at Titletown, and has been marketed as a sausage flavor as well. One of the most complex (four hop varieties), yet refreshing beers I have had. Will have this beer again in the future.

On tap in Green Bay at a local sushi bar. Bartender said it was a fresh keg and it was very good. Great nose, taste and feel. Just an all around very good pale ale that I am extremely happy to be able to get fresh whenever I want. I have converted a few BMC drinkers with this beer.

Had this on tap at the brewery.

This poured an amber-tan color.

The beer had this pleasing, green, grassy-fresh aroma to it. Ahhh!

Pleasingly bitter to the taste, with a grassy-piney hop character. Nice finish. Opens well as it warms. I liked it.

Serving: On-tap into a pint glass
Served: 9 Aug 2013, at the brewpub before the Packers v. Cardinals preseason game

Appearance: An amber color with a fluffy white head that dissipates into a small sheen of white foam on the top of the beer. Minimal lacing.

Smell: Clean and hoppy. Citrus hops and some piney notes coming out too.

Taste: A very well balanced IPA. This one is certainly hoppy, but the hops are complimented by a nice, semi-sweet malt backbone, leading this IPA to finish a little sweeter than some. Definitely not as 'dry' as other IPAs. The hops play an assertive role on this malt profile, leading to a well-balanced profile.

Mouthfeel: Sometimes I think that more balanced IPAs tend to taste a little watery once they start warming up. Not this one. This one maintains a good carbonation and body even as the glass sits for a while.

Overall: This is a great beer. A very balanced IPA but still with a nice hop punch. Won't wreck your palate but will leave you satisfied. Titletown brewpub also has very affordable and delicious food options. A must-visit if you're in town for a Packer game. Titletown also pours their 16oz beers into 20oz glasses to ensure there's always room for a nice head- a nice service for a brewery that's clearly in touch with its guests.

Sampled on tap at the brewpub, thanks to Bison for the beer!

Bright golden orange, frothy foam on top that has a creamy surface texture, leaving behind some spotty lace around the edges. Clarity is sharp, some stray rising bubbles are visible. Surface skim parts after a few sips.

Dank resiny hop aroma, floral and dried citrus peel. Pretty classic yet unique.

Firmly bitter, green and hoppy with a resiny feel that sticks in the teeth a little. Lives up to its name (though football related). Light citrus and florals. Relatively light bodied and drinkable, this was the favorite of the bunch that I sampled at the brewpub.

Arrived in a nice looking pint glass. Served slightly chilled.

A) Golden amber with a creamy finger of head. The head settles to a dusting. Plenty of lacing... Very attractive beer...

S) The aroma is of pineapple and other tropical fruits. Pleasing malt sweetness, balanced with a light piney bitterness.

T) Follows the nose pretty closely, with exception of just a little bit more pine, and some citrus taste too. Really nice...

M) Smooth medium body, nicely carbonated. Bit of a piney sticky aftertaste. Easy on the palate, and easy drinking.

O) Really enjoyed this beer. Wish I brought a growler home. I also wish it was available closer to my home. Ah, can't complain too much, I always enjoy visiting Green Bay. If you find yourself in Green Bay, skip Curly's Pub, and head to Titletown Brewery for some excellent beers and food. I paired this with the fish and chips, which was also outstanding. Glad to recommend...

simply the best in the midwest.

Nice balance of hops and malts, and especially malt. nice fish eyed sized bubbles.

My only regret on this one is that I can only get it in growlers. I have even considered smuggling in a six pack of empty bottles and a funnel and to keep a capper in the car just so i can keep the flavor for a few weeks.

Cask version draught @ Brewpub. This one poured a clear, copper color with one finger of an off-white head. The aroma is subdued. There are hops in there, but not as much as I might expect. Mainly citrus aroma with some caramel malt. The taste is nicely balanced. there is a fair amount of bitterness, mainly citrus hop taste with some earthiness also. Nice.

Drank at the brewery.

The beer is a dark amber with minimal head.

Moderate hop aroma with no citrus presence.

This beer is very drinkable and an agressive piney hop flavor. Good malt-hop bitterness balance.

Overall it's a well rounded American IPA.

Color is kinda dark for style, almost brown which kinda throws you off. But the giant hoppy aromatic off white head reminds you that you are still in IPA country. Really piney, resiny, & some floral too. The bitterness is up there and will not be well recieved if you are not into IPAs. This is a solid IPA and a real treat to get a fresh one on tap. Kinda has a sweet heavyness, not an alcohol bite per say, but drinkability is limted somewhat cuz of this.

sampled from a growler. Has a real caramel hue with good clarity and strong enough head on a vigorous pour that quickly disappears. Aroma is relatively citrusy and mildly sweet. Taste- generous hopping, not too bitter. pretty middle of the road. caramel toasty malts. Mouthfeel is good. Overall not a bad session IPA.

So, I tried this one A) cause the menu said to try with the jumbalaya I was getting, so I'll try them at their word, and B) F'in cool name.

Into a pint glass, pours a nice golden hue with ample head shrinkng again. Decent lacing at the top of the glass. Aroma has a nice hop profile, lots of pine resin, solid malt backing, pretty well balanced (for an IPA). Taste is again well balanced, nice pine and hop oils and bready malting. And as advertised, stood up well to the jumbalaya assault. Mouth was solid, lots of carbonation, but as with the red it was served too cold. I can imagine tearing right into this thing if it were served at the right temperature, but sitting around after all my foods gone, sipping away until I can finally get what the beers about, thats just not right. So, lame as it is to knock the beer itself, it looses drinkability point for making me wait.
