An unexpected visual bend to an American IPA. This style is one that stands out in a crowd, or if you’re more like us - enjoyed at a campsite, with no crowd.

Minnesota Trip Beer #106. Keg at Muddy Waters, Minneapolis. Clear copper, large creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of big citrus hops and mild tropical fruit. The taste is tropical fruit, citrus, pale malt. Juicy.

kramer (5910) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body under a two finger frothy off-white head that had nice retention. The nose is more malt than hops, slightly husky and caramel maltiness with just a gentle floral hoppiness. The flavor is much the same, dry toasty and husky grain up front with a slight bitterness towards the back end. Not exactly crossing into IPA category for me personally. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Ok for a single, but this wouldn’t be a regular drinker for me.

This is one of my favorite IPAs. I like the blonde color and lighter body paired with assertive and balanced hops. A unique blend of hops that I look to replicate in my own beers. Tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nuffield (4081) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2016
Moderate and balanced hop profile with a good malt presence and a finish that remains bright. Citrus and a bit of chewing gum. Decent. Can.

Juicy nose, brilliant straw color, velvety smooth mouthfeel and crisp finish. A terrific midcoast IPA!

Very mild IPA. Not very hoppy and IBUs seem very low. Not very flavorful overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BreWedge (486) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
12 fl oz can via Piscator34. Pours a clear gold with a large white head (mine was actually a little cloudy from a small amount of sediment at the bottom of the can). Aromas are resin, florals, and some biscuit. Tastes are light citrus (lemon), some resin, and a hint of biscuit malt. Light body, refreshing, medium to long, but not cloying, resinous finish. Very sessionable.
