This recently arrived in WI, I spotted a rack of these in Racine along with the brown ale and oatmeal stout. A quart of IPA...sign me up!

Glugs into a .5L mug with plenty of creamy foam. The surface has that soft meringue sheen to it, and an intricate coating of sticky lace. Murky burnt sienna orange.

Delicate grassy aroma, with some orange citrus peel in the back. Fairly understated.

Very balanced you might say, malt forward with competing citrus and tea leaf bitterness from the hops. Some multigrain bread lingers in the aftertaste with a moderate hop bitterness. This is a nicely crafted IPA, balanced and subtle. Not a hop bomb, but good for a session. It's fairly full bodied but light on the palate, especially with the dry aftertaste. The quart bottle seemed like a bit of a novelty, but it's a nice size for a sessionable IPA like this.

Served In: Pint Glass
