Brewed to drink long winter sessions of our favorite card game. Extensive dry hopping combined with a formidable malt bill creates the hoppiest beer in Redwood County!

badgerben (4887) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Dark copper color with a medium head. Light citrus and caramel aroma. A little buttery. Well this is an interesting and unexpected blend... grapefruit and orange flavors, mixed with a sweet malt body, light caramel and toast. Pretty solid!

Deep amber that is near copper with a light yellowish khaki head. Smells of grapefruit and sweet crystal malt are strong up front. There is also some pleasing dry straw. The taste has some bitter grapefruit peel and black pepper spice. The finish is fairly sweet with some toasted toffee. Wow, this is pretty much an IPA in my opinion. Good brew.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2009
Pours copper with thin head. Aroma is decent herbal hop, some light lemony citrus. Toasted and caramel malt with a hint of vanilla perhaps? Flavour is nicely balanced. Medium hop with a nice toasted malt presence. Almost comparable to a british pale though more assertive hop.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2009
On cask for Firkin Fest at the Happy Gnome in St. Paul 09. Had a medium pour with a good malt character accompanied with medium hops. It was a bit big to be a pale ale malt-wise but I guess the hops didn’t kick it into IPA mode. Pretty good brew overall.

timjertson (27) - Waseca, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Reddish copper brew with a lovely creamy head. Fresh citrus hop aroma with a slight hint of the malt. Head lingers. Hoppy, but with enough malt to balance it. A very nice ale.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2009
On tap Winterfest 2009 St. Paul MN. Pours a hazy orange color with a minimal head. Mild malts, strong bittering and dry hop notes. Hops are fresh and citric. Dry finish, medium bodied. Wasn’t expecting much from this beer but was pleasantly surprised.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2009
On draught during Winterfest 2009 in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin white head with spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted Belgian malt, some citrus and floral hops, a touch of mild herbs and some grapefruit. Taste is light to medium bodied, with flavors of roasted golden grain and caramel malts, lemon zest, a hint of floral hops and some light fruit. Finish is semi-dry with a mild citrus aftertaste that follows a sharp bitterness.
