Poured a very cloudy golden orange color with a pretty decent sized head. The smell was all hops and very little malt with pine, lemongrass, citrus and a nice bouquet of floral. Hops are dominant but not biter with some grapefruit, pine, and a touch of biscuit cutting through the hop flavor.

Draft pour to shaker, dark golden/near amber, little head (too cold), moderate lacing. Nose of pine, some floral. Taste is great balance of malt and bitterness, same components as nose. Above average body and average carbonation.

Toasted carmel biscuits on the nose (loaded with caramel malt). Filled with Cascade, Citra, Zeus, Centennial, and Chinook hops. At 46 IBUs the bitterness doesn't numb the taste buds. A well rounded IPA. Lingering hoppy aftertaste.

Bottled from Total MKE.

12oz bottle best by 11/23/17.

Pours a cloudy dark amber with 1 finger head. Some lacing here and there.

Aroma is sweet and malty. Some pine, grass, and hops but very honey-like overall.

Taste is hoppy and piney bitterness. Malt backbone.

Feel Is medium body. Quite carbonated. Smooth drinking.

Overall a good IPA. Not super complex but a good blend of smooth malts and sharp hops.

My father in law bought several different beers to celebrate Christmas with and this was one of them. I've been on a bit of an IPA kick recently so I was interested to try this one out and see what this Milwaukee brewery could do.

This beer pours a clear amber color that is high in carbonation and sports a thick, frothy, off white head that dissipates moderately quickly to a rocky layer with a neck. 4/5 The aroma is primary of pine resin and citrus peel and just smells bitter and really hoppy (as it should since it's an IPA). There is a bit of light buttered white bread that comes through as an undertone, showcasing the malt. 4/5 The flavor profile leads off with a light caramel sweetness that quickly transitions into citrus peel and then pine resin. These latter two notes carry the entirety of the flavor profile on their backs. Bitterness is moderate and lingers for quite some time after swallowing. 3.75/5 This is a medium bodied IPA that has a moderate carbonation burn up front before becoming crisp, clean, and drying with a moderate lingering dryness. 4/5 This is a well crafted IPA that uses its simplicity to its advantage. The pine and citrus peel really work well together and provide a flavorful drinking experience that doesn't overwhelm the palate. 4/5
