2.8/5  rDev -19.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Dark orange in color, very light haze in the beer. Small white head, good carbonation.

Aroma is of malt, caramel, very little hop aroma.

Taste is balanced, not too sweet or too bitter, notes of toast, grain, caramel, very little hop flavor, bitter finish.

Medium body.

Overall an okay beer, balanced, not all that hoppy, good beer but not a great IPA.

The Baraboo IPA is more of an English style IPA then an APA....in my opinion. The beer poured a copper clear with thin white head that is leaving some lace. The scent is failrly non-descript...malty...slightly bitter. The taste is bitter from the start through the end where a semi sweet malt kicks in to dissapate the bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer....not my favorite style....but good.

Look: This beer is a hearty orange-burgundy when held against the light. The head is off-white, medium-thick, and retention is moderate. A few dashes of lacing left behind here and there, but nothing consistent or coating.

Aroma: Pine and resin hop notes play a minor part in the aroma, which is mostly malts. Malt notes are bread, and biscuit. It also smells a bit dry, with the notes not lasting long.

Taste: Malt notes drive this beer onward and forward, with biscuit, bread, and musky malt notes throughout the flavor profile. Notes of pine and spruce hops appear sporadically which give this beer a little more bitterness. The hop notes are really being drowned out by the malt notes on this one.

Feel: It feels abrasive between both carbonation level and a small level of particulate in the beer. Nothing crazy. The thickness consistency is medium.

Overall: This beer leaves something to be desired. The label of Indian Pale Ale evokes ideas of hops, bitterness, and more fruity, resin, bright flavors, meanwhile this beer retains some bitterness, but with very muted hop notes.

3.5/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Caramel-colored hue with a thin but steady cream-colored head; some lacing but not much

S: Some subdued hop aromas: citrus, grassy herbs with a sweet bready malt backbone but pretty subdued

T: Better balance of hop bitterness and bready malts: toffee and biscuity malts with citrus lemon, tea, and grass from the hops--pretty refreshing actually

F: Decent medium body--perhaps a touch thin on the finish

O: Well, this is a decent IPA and one that I'd drink again but not buy--there's just too many American IPA options out there for me to give this too much attention

A big thank you to cpolking for this beer. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a deep copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of malty?! Taste is mild hops, a good bit of malts, a light bitterness. A refreshing taste but if you are looking for a hop bomb, this ain't it. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is different than many IPA's, but not bad.

Possibly the mostly aptly named beer ever, as it may very be the most pine-centric IPA I've ever had. Too much so, in fact, as it sacrifices drinkability for such a strong emphasis on the pine.

The local HY-Vee liqour store manager finally managed to talk me into giving this a try. A $6.99/6-pack helped.
Real pleasant aroma. Bottle stated mix of Perle, Cascade and Magnum dry hopping. It's a good mix. Fresh, citrus, other fruit a little flower and minimal grass. Real fine. Soft malt with hints of crystal.
Mostly clear amber with brownish and orange tints. Creamy head with good stamina. Classic looking.
Hop flavor is biggest and it's pleasant. Hop bitterness follows and is noticeable, but not to any excess. As it warms the sweetness of the malt starts to interact nicely with the fruitiness of the hops and these blend well.
The feel is the least desirable part or this brew. It seems too thin, not by a lot, but enough. And the carbonation is prickly and more than I want.
Overall a fine drinking, albeit light, Am IPA that makes the grade for a solid drinking ale.

Dry hopped with Cascade, Perle and Magnum.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a one-finger, tan head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of pine and toasted maltiness.

T - Good pine and citrus flavors with a nice bitter bite. It had a good toasted malt backbone.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty tasty IPA. Should make for a nice affordable session IPA.

This one benefits from low expectations. Private label for HyVee. The other Baraboo offerings I tried weren't so good. This is billed as an IPA but tastes like a hoppy lager to me. Kind of reminded me of Sierra Nevada beer camp hoppy lager and that is a compliment. 6.99 a sixer I can totally dig it.
