look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Cloudy. Orange juice color. Thin khaki cap with finely bubbled lace. Looks thick.

S - Gooey Hawaiian roll notes (sweet bready biscuits), slightly buttery, mango hops.

T - Caramel malts with butterscotch. Lots of really green and minty hop flavors. Green candy cane.

M - Medium bodied, chewy. Nice long minty finish. Outstandingly drinkable.

I really like this one. It steps away from the "biscuity malt, piney/grapefruit hop" standard of American IPAs. This one is more refreshing. Fresh mint leaves and Worther's Original candy flavors. Nice!

A- Lighter straw-yellow body, one finger white head that sticks around a while; fluffy and effervescent in nature.

S- Mild grapefruit and floral notes, crackery pale malt sweetness that is a bit sweeter than I have seen from midwest IPAs. Solid, no off-flavours here. Not a particularly intense or complex nose.

F- Tasty grapefruit, caramel, biscuits, some floral bitterness. Not superbly complex; a bit maltier than I'd like.

M- Thin bodied, a bit more like a session IPA in terms of feel and ABV combination. Bitterness is nice, although it seems to be restrained by the malt presence.

O- It's a decent local IPA although it remains lost in a sea of many relatively average IPAs in Wisconsin.
