Reddish gold pour. Nice combination of citrus and pine in the aroma. Hop bitterness balances well with the malt backbone. Relatively clean finish. Nice brew - does a good job hiding the 10%.

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.
