Pours clear golden copper with of white head. The aroma is earthy citrus hops and toasted grains. The flavor is somewhat muted toasted grain with a rich very dry earthy pine floral hop thing that is peculiar. Decent brew but not quite all there.

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.

Light to no head. No lacing. Hoppy and bitter but somewhat balanced. Like this brewery but this is not one of their best

Tasted at Beer Dabbler event in St. Paul. I would have liked to taste something really special for 300th beer. But the closest I could come is something close to where I used to live in Redwood Falls, MN. This beer was surprisingly complex with a very nice combination of hops enhancing a lot of nice malt and carmel. Actually a lot more flavor than often appears in a pale ale.

Pours a nice amber with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma strong of floral and citrus hops, nice sweet malt, and a bit of caramel and vanilla. Flavor matches well with a deep bitterness that is quite nice on the palate. Solid beer.

My first beer from this brewer and first from Minnesota. This beer speaks well for the brewer and the Gopher State. I like some hops and malt in a pale ale and it did not disappoint. Bold, malty, hoppy, on the palate holds up on the aftertaste, too. I will look for this again.

Strong Piney Hops and Resin flavors with toffee, yeasts and caramel. Very smooth and creamy with a moderate weighted body. Very good American IPA overall
