Lots of piney orange citrus. Beautiful orange color. Big caramel malt backbone. Very well blanced. This DIPA is unique and is one of the better ones i have had.

Pint can. Poured cloudy medium golden with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sharper fruit skins first and foremost, with alcohol and medicinal hops also present.. didn’t smell very enjoyable. The flavor found similar stuff.. pale and caramel sweet malts at the core, with sharp fruit skins, peppery alcohol, and raw bitterness laced throughout.. some nice, fruity hop character joined at the end, but overall it was very medicinal. Medium-bodied with fairly filling carbonation.. spicy and sharp.. I don’t need another.

Smells earthy and piney. Head was frothy with a creamy white foam. The pour was clear and golden. The taste was a little heavy on the sweetness, medium bitterness, long finish,

Meh IPA. More on the sweet malty side for an IPA. Kids creamy body. Pine and wood hops. Not exactly fresh.

This pours a hazy, amber color with a foamy off-white head. The aroma is filled with bitter citrus. For being an IIPA that taste is rather sweet and is very easy drinking for being 9.8% This is a fairly well rounded beer that is balanced and yet tasty for all the right reasons.

This one doesn’t have it all there. dominated by the maltyness to get it up to double IPA status, but not much hop flavor left. decent, wouldn’t get again, but it was enjoyable and another good minnesota brew.

500ml can from Breeze Thru. Pours a clear orangey copper with a spongey white head leaving nice spots of lace. Aroma has pine and citrus and caramel. Quite grapefruit/spice heavy. Taste is of bitter grapefruit, lemon zest, sweet caramel malt and some spicy pine. Down through the glass the caramel pushes to the front, although never taking over and staying fairly balanced. Medium bodied and a bit sticky, with a touch of alcohol. Finishes bittersweet, in a nice balance between the two. A solid, quite balanced, effort that is not too extreme.
