There's not much not to love about this beer for the IPA lover. Beautiful amber color though a bit cloudy, full light colored head with excellent lacing. It's got that nice hoppy dankness that we love. Tastes wonderful and finishes strong. Milwaukee still means great beer!

Pours golden copper. Thick, medium, off-white head that lasts a while with good lacing.

Smells Pine, malt, Herbal, dank.

Tastes bready and doughy malt, Pine, hints of citrus and floral. Finishes dry and A light bitter linger. Medium body and creamy lower medium carbonation. Surprisingly not bitter for the amount of hops flavor.

Another super close to home beer. This one is weird; on tap always good a good hoppy, citrus classic ipa taste. In the bottle it always seems to be more dank and does not have the crisp hoppy kick. Another thing with this and certain other ipas; sometimes i get a cat piss aroma from it (not overpowering just real subtle). Not sure if i am nuts or what. Strictly on tap this would be rated higher, strictly bottle lower. For purposes on the review/rating cut it in half.

poured from bottle into pint glass..

L: a nice, golden, amber color
S: aromas of citrus (lemon, grapefruit), very nice
T: the hops and citrus flavors blend well...nicely balanced
F: a smooth drink, nice level of carbonations

Overall: a very nice, pleasing drink...one of my new favorites...unfortunately, I don't think this one is widely available on east coast
