Bottle. Not that good and doesn’t really represent the style. Some hop bite up front but horrible finish. Very malty and unbalanced.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle pours a hazy brownish amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is like a caramel apple with a hint of hops, ick. Taste is very sweet caramel malt with some hop spice that stings the palate, has a sweet yet bitter finish. Overall just too sweet and muddled which works against the hops.

Probably bias but really good beer. A client of mine ordered me a 6 pack. Had it delivered to our cabin on vacation in the brainerd lakes area. The beer has a really smooth flavor. Easy to drink. My favorite beers are ones i can sit back and drink a 6 pack. This is that beer. If you are ever in Brainerd MN pick up a case.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a lot of musty pine and grass notes with an earthy wet bread backing. Aroma is mainly musty with hay and grain with only a hint of grassy hops.

Bottle at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Gold pour, white head. Weak IPA, muted on the aroma and taste. Not very good overall.

Not much of a scent, has a nice bitter but I'm not a huge fan of the sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Zipp’s Liquors in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear golden amber colored ale with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and a film top. Aroma of citrus zest, some mild raisin, light caramel malt, and a touch of leather. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of both floral and grassy hops, a hint of tropical fruit, mild yeast and some grapefruit. Finish is semi-dry, with a lingering red grapefruit aftertaste and mild bitterness. A solid light barley wine-style IPA.

This is just downright bad. Smell of grain, muted hops, and gasoline. Tastes like expired soy sauce, astringent exploitation of summer days, and hops picked in the middle of winter. Kinda tastes similar to what it would be like to get a mouthful of lake water after someone urinated in it off the side of a boat with a running motor.
