Has a rather dull hop pine scent. Taste is an over whelming bitterness, nasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice pine note backed by grapefruit and sweet grains. Flavor has more grapefruit up front that is joined by pine and has a pleasant not too sweet malt backbone.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber. Small white head. Caramel aroma. Sweet caramel flavor with some spice and then a bit of bitterness. Nice balance between the sweet and bitter. Even though this beer isn’t heavy it is full bodied. Tons of flavor. Not as hoppy as the description states, but it suprisingly good even though I’m not a huge APA fan. Picked it up as a single at my local liquor store. Very Very nice, will look forward to having again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

12oz bottle. Poured a clear amberish color with an off white head. Aromas of rotten citrus rinds, floral, and toast. Tastes of citrus (not the rotten kind in the aromas), some caramel, and toasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 isn’t as complex or overhopped. Taste is only slightly bitter. Quite easy to drink, with slight carbonation. A delight to find, and one I’ll 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 it’d bring a little more to the table from the appearance/aroma. not a bad brew by any means.
