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

A darker shade of yellow. Lacking hop aroma.

Taste kicks you some bitterness and not a whole lot more. Long boil hops. Really all around average stuff, doesn't do anything bad or good, its just there. It'll do in a pinch, but I can't imagine this being the best stuff on a shelf anywhere in the country.

L: Pours brilliant copper amber into a 19 oz. Spiegelau glass producing a dense, persistent 3” cream colored foam collar that grips the side of the glass.
S: Big grassy hop nose with light biscuit.
T: Biscuity malt provides the backbons for spicy, fruity hops that hint at rootbeer to anise and culminate in a bitter, citrus rind finish with a hint of pepper.
F: Creamy, medium to medium light body, medium to medium high carbonation.
O: A very good big flavored IPA

The hops are distinct, but not overbearing. The bitterness and lingering fruit on the finish is well-balanced. Wild Ride is a solid Wisconsin IPA

Pours a mostly clear orange golden color with off-white head. Tropical fruits, citrus, light fruits and a light pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice fruity hop note, not overly bitter either.

Wild ride is very earthy, with big notes of vegetables. While the hops are bold, its not fruity. Overall its flavorful, but its too earthy.
