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!

sherm1016 (1130) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2012
12oz bottle at the Marq VII. Pours a reddish amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, more pine than citrus. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bread, pine hops, with a sharp, bitter finish. Just ok.

ccex (921) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Pours a clear reddish amber with a small white head. Nose is full of floral and citrus hops. Upon my first whiff I thought that this might be as great as my favorite 3 Floyds IPAs, but the aroma isnít as complex or overhopped. Taste is only slightly bitter. Quite easy to drink, with slight carbonation. A delight to find, and one Iíll pick up again the next time I travel to Minnesota.

bottle pour. copper in color with a thin off white head. aroma is of caramel malt and spicy hops. on the lighter side of medium bodied. flavor is kind if weak, more malty than hoppy. thought itíd bring a little more to the table from the appearance/aroma. not a bad brew by any means.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12 oz bottle - Pours orange with a bubbly white head. A bit floral hoppy, but doesnít live up to the description. There must not be any other hoppy beers in Redwood County. I doubt there are any redwoods, either.

Pailhead (4742) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle: The aroma is heavy on caramel along with a touch of fruit and minimal hoppiness. It pours a transparent amber with a one finger orange-tinged off-white head that quickly fades to a soapy ring around the edges of the glass. Spotty lacing is left behind. The flavor starts with moderate caramel with some lighter fruit notes. The finish has some muted grapefruit notes. The hops are dull enough that I assume this probably isnít the freshest bottle. Medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, not terrible...but not what I want in an APA. The hops are just too dull.

Iím not getting much aroma but it is a nice cooper color. Flavor is a pretty light roasted malt with a slight bitterness on the finish. Its a pretty good beer.
