COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2011
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.

ChiGuy68 (545) - Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a hazy orange to amber hue with a thin, quickly dissipating head. A light malty hop aroma with a hint of spice. Bitter taste of malt, caramel, and pine.

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

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2010
12 oz bottle from TC Craft. Dark golden pour with a nice big white head and excellent lacing. Aroma and flavor are malty and hoppy, very nicely balanced. Finish has a nice hoppy bite.

ColovianTrader (464) - - MAY 17, 2014
Nutty caramel, pine, floral hops. Light fruit and grains with hints of citrus. Felt a bit light in the body, and not enough carbonation to clean out the aftertaste.

euniceradio (435) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2016
12oz bottle to pint. Pours cloudy iced tea color, dissipating off white head. Aroma of pine, fig, grass, raisin. Taste of same with finish of burnt toast and biscuit. Finish is as bitter and dry as they claim.

RyanMM (416) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Pours deep copper, very full head. Takes time to settle down, lots of lingering foam. Aroma is toasty and caramel malts with some resinous hops. Lower carbonation, just a hint of caramelly sweetness followed by a solid but moderate bittering. This is a nice bitter amber (I certainly wouldn’t call this a pale ale by any definition) that drinks easy while still having a lot of flavor.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12 oz bottle - Pours orange with a bubbly white head. A bit floral hoppy, but doesn’t live up to the description. There must not be any other hoppy beers in Redwood County. I doubt there are any redwoods, either.

LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Sample at Winterfest. From notes. Double Dry hopped cask version. Pours a hazy gold, with minimal head and decent lacing. Can see the hop resins in there...great looking beer. Aroma is a big punch of hops. Flavor is much the same, with a bit of toffee, but unbalanced hop bitterness throughout. A nice, hop forward IPA that could use a bit more balance.

GhostFace (321) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2011
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.
