COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship year-round release WINDVANE stands strong through all types of weather and is a great fit for all seasons. Pouring a deep brilliant red, this is your go-to beer. If you want something hoppy, you definitely have it. American hops give WINDVANE a swift bitterness with piney, citrus and resinous flavors. If you want something with strong malt shoulders, you have that too. Roast malt layers add complexity and keeps the beer dry to showcase the hops.

Leixlip (15) - IRELAND - JUL 20, 2013
16oz pour from Bar/restaurant in Minneapolis. Amber pour, not much head . Nice color and smell. Hoppy red ale with notes of pine , citrus and caramel . Reminds me a little of Surly Furious. Nice flavor profile and body. I would buy this for sure if it was available in stores. Great beer for summer , another great twin cities brewery to keep an eye on.
