copper color, clear, decent citrus hoppiness in the nose. flavor is a nice mix of brown sugar and citrus. the bitterness is more along the lines of an IPA rather than an APA. clean and crisp...not bad.

copper color, a bit of citrus hoppiness. flavor is a nice mix of malt and citrus. It says APA here, but it was marketed to us on tap as a double IPA--definitely not a DIPA. fairly dry body. Itís OK.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Deep red ale, crystal clear, with one finger of off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, flora hops. Taste follows the aroma - the swallow starts with sweet malts and traslates to a fine complex hoppiness, ending iwth a pleasant bitterness and dry finish. Hops are flora with overtones of spice, citrus, and pine. I didnít know the style before looking here, but guessed pale ale, so it seems true to me, but the maltiness may also suggest a hopped a red ale. Either way it is a fine fine brew and one that Iíll be getting again. It may be a winter seaosnal but Iím quaffing it on a 96 degree day and loving every drop.

On tap at the brewery. Great beer; poured copper brown, clear with white head. Aroma is malty, fruit and hops highlights. Taste is sweet, some roast, some caramel notes and some alcohol. Very good beer and one of my favorites from these guys. Easy to drink and very enjoyable.

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.

On tap. Aroma has notes of toasted caramel malts and bittering hops. Deep hazy amber hue with a small off-white head that left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter. Palate is medium bodied and oily with an average carbonation. Overall a good brew.

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 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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice floral hop overtone with candied malt backing. Scent is most likely cascade or similar hop. Appearance is a dark clear amber or red with a thick off white slightly tan head that lingers. Taste is kind of all over the place decent pungent hop with some mixed up malt. Really kind of a mixed bag of a beer. Palate is lively on the tongue, slightly bitter sweet aftertaste. Overall, Itís kind of all over the place. Cheers!

Bottle pour. Decent beer here that doesnít quite have as much hop profile as the marketing would have you believe.

A wonderful American IPA. Just the right amount of bitterness. Love this beer on a hot day for that smooth, crisp and refreshing flavor!
