look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Light orange color to this brew. Crystal clear transparency. Finger worth of head on the pour which continued to regenerate while drinking. Above average active carbonation for the style.

Smell: Caramel malt hits on the front of the nose. Body of some saturated oranges and tangerines with lighter accents of airy tropical fruits. Mild pine bitterness on the back end. Grains and molasses contributions from the malt backbone bring this one full circle.

Taste: Grains and oats greet the drinker. Those quickly yield to a sweet caramel malt backbone. Medium bitter pine hits first on the hop front. Light citrus fruits pick up toward the back end and are present in the finish. All areas are muted and a little watery.

Mouthfeel: Malt sweetness and light dried fruits are the most memorable textures felt on the palate. Carbonation fits this brew.

Overall: Pretty much a middle of the road IPA. Always happy to support a local brewery, especially in the can format. Probably wouldn't buy it again but certainly would try other Wisconsin Brewing Co offerings.

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

Pours a clear orange, finger of white head, decent lacing

Smell is orange, sweet blood orange, honey, biscuit, pine, caramel, bready

Taste is biscuit up front, with decent showing of orange and mango in the middle, a pine bitterness, sweet honey and bready malt, finish is grapefruit peel bitterness, there is kind of a sweetness that is a bit strange that lingers and I could do without that.

Mouthfeel is medium light, heavy carbonation, pretty dry

its a fine IPA, but it a market with so many great ones I do think they could have come up with a better IPA if they truly want to become as big as they think they are going to.

give it a shot if you see it!
