3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle and served in my GI IPA Tulip: A beautiful beer with a golden glow topped by a lasting frothy head which left great lacework upon the glassware. The aroma is very interesting, dank and resiny yet juicy and piney too. The spicy character almost seems more yeast driven then hop, perhaps a Belgian yeast strain? The biscuity and slight caramel malt are strictly there to support the hops. The taste is quite bitter and fruity with a pronounced dank and herbal quality as well. Quite spicy and a bit metallic on the finish. Highly aggressive mouth feel, biting and brash. The alcohol is not hidden either and I do not think they attempted to hide it... now is this beer brutal? Not quite for I have had beer more brutally bittered than this but by no means is this a light weight either. Part of me really likes this beer and part of me feels "meh" like I have been there done that. So final verdict... make your own moment in time with duganA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber sized bottle purchased at Elevated in South Mpls. Consumed from a Belgian glass with the Moeder Lambic markings. Very attractive golden orange coloring with a healthy half finger of head. Initial pine aroma with a nice citrus accent. Taste has plenty of piney resin qualities balanced well by a citrus characteristic (orange, tangerine, grapefruit). There seems to be a healthy dose of malty sweetness to this one as well. Very drinkable...finish has a good hit of bitterness and rounds out nearly perfectly. Wishing this was a more readily available option in Mpls. Very, very solid.

Flaska. En gammal bekannt. Hav o toner av ladgård i doften. Världsdoft!
Smaken sjukt krämig o balanserad. Fin smak av malt o humle. Så jäkla god öl. En back av den här skulle smaka.

Pours a golden yellow with a thick white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is orange citrus. Taste is piney resin with a hint of citrus. Overall pretty good I always like having a piney IPA when one comes out.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bomber to a pilsner glass. First hit of the nose for me was an odd
lemon pledge. Hazy amber and yeasty pour. Big first taste. Apricot syrup booze right off the bat. Rounded malt supporting the middle. Very well balanced through the clean fairly dry finish. The crisp green apple at the finish left me wanting more. Super complex but well balanced.
