smells uber hoppy with lots of lemon smell. you can smell the alcohol content which weighs in at 7+ %.

pours slightly a amber/gold body white lumpy very retentive head with lots of lace on the glass from a 1 pint and 6 ounce .

lots of hops and lemon lime a slight alcohol burn gives it a very refreshing feel . here’s also some nutty flavors maybe cashews or pistachio I can’t decide, but its good.

Had on DRAFT at brewery and later via a growler SHERM1016 and I acquired....Poured from this growler...lots and lots of hops...Bright yellow color with white head. Decent balance of malt and hops....lots of pine / citrus in taste and finish. Tasty. This is a local beer, to us, and we are enjoying watching the GLBC folks grow...

Stole a 12 oz can from my buddy from northern Illinois during his bachelor party this last weekend. No canning date that I can see. Poured right from the fridge into my Lakefront pint glass.

L: Pours a hazy copper amber with about two inches of off-white head with large bubbles. The head dissipates after a bit to just a ring that leaves a moderate amount of lacing on the glass. Some fine particulate and very lazy visible carbonation in the brew.

S: Citrus hops were quite prominent when I first opened and poured, but these settle down after a while. There's still somewhat subdued citrus notes, along with caramel and cracker malts. Grassy notes and a little bit of a resinous quality to the nose, as well.

T: Caramel malts are prominent right out of the gate. They're accompanied by lemon citrus and grassy hop notes, with a bit of resinous pine poking through, as well. The middle brings a swelling of the citrus, grassy, and resinous hop flavors. There's still caramel malt flavor asserting itself here, as well--perhaps a bit more than I'd like it to be. There's an earthiness in the mix that carries over to the back end, where the resinous pine and bitter lemon zest hop notes are the central feature and stick around through the aftertaste. Caramel malts are still present at the close. With as high an ABV as this one boasts, I'm surprised there isn't more clear alcohol flavor coming through.

F: On the lighter side of medium-bodied. This one starts a bit watery, but the creaminess picks up in the middle. The close and aftertaste are bitter, but not terribly. There's more of a feeling of tartness to this one, overall. Just a bit of stick to this one--it's far from syrupy.

O: This is a pleasant IPA that hits the right notes. I think the caramel malt flavor could be toned down a bit, but the overall taste is good. I don't think I'd go out of my way to find this one again, but it was overall a quality beer that I'd recommend giving a try.

On tap at the Old Fashioned in Madison. First beer and first review for this brewery.
Served in a standard shakers pint glass. Slightly hazy yellow gold. Served with a small, creamy, but very stable off white head lots of lacing. Aroma is pleasant, but light. Mostly citrus and pine. Grapefruit. Taste is similar. Pine and grapefruit dominate, but feels a bit watery. Earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Moderately astringent bitterness seems out of place.
A decent first beer. Respectable everyday drinker presumably brewed for the hoards of tourists in the Lake Geneva area.
