A pretty solid IPA; Yankee Buzzard has nice citrus flavors and a smooth, easy feel. I have been unimpressed with Wisconsin Brewing's other offerings to this point, but this beer is a cut above most. Not a world-class beer, but certainly a lot better than a lot of its local competitors.

this must be a new one. my buddy brought it back for me from wisconsin, and i think its pretty tasty. its got just a bit of copper hue to it, bust mostly rich golden in color, good clarity, and a full inch of white head but it doesnt stick around long. smells great, citrus and pine, the classic northwestern complexion, cleaner though, no oils leftover here, and not a ton of bitterness, right on par for that. the taste shows a little grain mix and match up front, with sweet hints of crystal, a light toasted quality, and then just the pale barley. hops do the bulk of the flavoring, less citrus than the nose suggested, but the pine is there, pretty rich and full bodied too, and the hops linger in the finish. its good beer, not overly complex, but its well made and easy drinking as american ipa goes, especially with an abv up over 7%. my second beer from these guys would be enough to make me buy some more of their stuff it were available to me. always a treat to try this stuff that doesnt get distributed out much.
