Tap. Dark orange pour, frothy head which left nice lacing and an aroma of concentrated hop pellets. Flavor was like chewing on oranges and hop pellets (but in a good way) and left a dry woody finish. Really nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
10 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom. Consumed on 4-22-14. Labeled as 7.0% ABV and 66 IBU. Pours a mostly clear, perhaps slightly hazy orange-ish amber with a moderate amount of long-lasting, cream to beige head. Looks good and appetizing. Weaker aroma than I would prefer features cream and orange scents. Fresh smell. Nice, dry, piney taste. Lemon, minerals, and dirt flavors. There is a light floral note that becomes apparent upon multiple sips. Dry, tonic / soda / mineral water aftertaste that reminds me of green grape seeds. Medium to full body (full bodied for the style). Lively in the palate. Easy to drink; drinkable, tasty, and refreshing. Really good taste and mouthfeel. Clearly fresh. If it were more aromatic it would be a virtually perfect IPA. A very good effort from Dangerous Man.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap fresh from the taproom served in a tulip. One gets the feeling they’re always tweaking the recipe on their IPA. This one had just been re-released according to my beer-tender. Featuring Chinook hops I was very impressed with this version, but this was also my first visit to Dangerous Man. A beautiful light orange-amber and hazy this is a solid IPA. The hops are omnipresent with a nice light toasty malt for balance. Very citrus and crisp bitterness throughout the taste. An outstanding mouthfeel and finish. The quality and value are unbeatable in my estimation and the sheer freshness of this IPA makes it a go to. Have one in the taproom and then grab a growler

On tap at Dangerous Man, pours a nice dark amber with a nice white head. Light pine and some resin hoppy notes. Taste is quite similar, big bitter hop flavor up front, finishes quite well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. This one is a bit more orange than the English Rye. Pine and citrus hops on the nose with a faint hit of bread malts. Taste profile matches. Definitely a trend of lighter carbonation in these beers. I like that, although I feel like there’s some consistent imbalances in the two beers I’ve tried. The malts are quite sugary compared to other beers out there, which makes them feel heartier but I don’t really dig how they finish. High alcohol is masked in taste but it definitely catches up with you! I appreciate what this fella is trying to do but it’s just not really my style. Something seems "off," and it’s definitely the palate of these beers. Looking forward to trying more of his brews though!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewpub. Fruity sweet hop aroma. Hazy gold body with a thin layer if lasting white head. Softly carbonated. Good balance, alcohol seems lower than it is. Eminently quaffable, creamy, rich, smooth and warming.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, light golden pour with a bit of head. The citus balances the bitterness well, and as someone who hates feeling like I?ve been sucking on a pine cone, this finishes well. Nice brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Dangerous Man brewery taproom in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear reddish amber colored brew with a thick off-whtie head that quickly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing and a thin white ring. Aroma of citrusy Cascade and spicy Pacific Jade hops, on top of a caramel and multi-grain malt presence. Taste is full bodied, average carbonation with plenty of multi-hops that over-power the caramel/crystal malts without the bitterness. Finish has a mild bitterness aftertaste at first, followed with citrus and spicy hop flavors without the tongue curling bitterness.

Tap at the brewpub. Clear orange pour with a spotty white head. Awesome citrus and pineapple nose and taste. Very juicy. I could drink a bunch of these.
