4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- Pours a deep transparent orange color with a nice, thick, chewy, off white head.
S- Smell is dominated by citrus and grapefruity hops with some sweet caramel malt in the background.
T- Nice and bready, substantive with citrus notes all the way through. A very bitter grapefruit finish stays on the tongue long after the brew is gone.
M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation.
D- This was an excellent IPA. I went in this expecting to be disappointed because of it’s high rating (which I thought it couldn’t live up to) but I was certainly wrong. If this was available around here it would be my go to.

Clear golden, almost bronze pour with a single finger head. Light aroma, hard to pick up on anything. Taste is full of two row malt with some grass. Dry finish with lingering bitterness. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

On draft at Town Hall Brewery on quick trip to Minneapolis. Very drinkable. Pours clear copper color with lasting small white head. Good lacing retention. Not hugely aromatic but good faint hoppy smell to it. Crisp bitter finish. Good beer. Wish it was easier to find. Great food at the brewery too.

From tap at Town Hall Tap: pours light copper clear. Small white head. Nose is fresh but more of a crispy than fruity nose. Also caramel, mineral-malty if that makes sense.. Nice Ballance of hops and mineral malt... The aftertaste is fruitier, leading toa bitter finnish. Highly drinkable.

Growler, big thanks to Jack. It pours clear dark amber with a decent yellow - white head. The nose is fresh, piney, caramel, varnish, juicy peach, stewed orange and pumpkin pie. The taste is bitter - sweet, decent malt back-bone, caramel, pine, varnish, earth, peppery, peach, resin and brown bread with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good old-skool malty IPA.

Way too hoppy, with hardly anything else for balance. Super bitter aftertaste, really not very pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a growler into a standard pint glass
Growler opened with a satisfying burst of carbonation.
Pours a beautiful copper color with a thin 1/2" white head. Crystal clear with appropriate level of carbonation. Good balance of earthy hops and sweet malt in the aroma. Nothing overpowering - just a really nice balance. I expected this to be a little more hop forward, but this wasn’t at all disappointing. Flavor has a good amount of bitterness, and a nice balance of fruity malt. When first poured, I detected a slight bubble gum flavor that was interesting and not unappealing. As the beer warmed in the glass a little, this disappeared. Solid body, maybe slightly on the thin side, but appropriate for an IPA. Extremely drinkable. I could have these all night long. Nothing is overpowering here - alcohol is detectable, but restrained. Malt and hops in perfect balance. Balance is the key word for this beer. Not a hop monster of an ipa, just a really solid, malty, hoppy ipa that is worthy of the hype.

Keg @ Town Hall. Amber with a tight white head. Pine cone, tangerine. Summery fruits. Some biscuit. Taste is pretty bitter. Plenty of pine, PNW hopppiness. Lemon zest. Dirt covered Pear. Biscuity malt. Medium body, a touch oily. Fun.
