COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Serving as an ancient navigational pointer and constructed from unworked stones in the likeness of a human, INUKSHUK means, “you are on the right path.” Watch Man IPA keeps the bitterness firm, but in check, and is accented by floral and citrus notes from the hops. Pair with flaky grilled fish, creamy pastas and hearty salads. Brewed with 2-Row and Maris Otter malts with Nugget and Amarillo hops then Cluster and Sterling dry-hopped. Original Gravity: 14.3

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle from Happy Harry’s in Grand Forks, ND. The beer poured orange with a medium sized white head. It had a mild skunk smell. The taste was unusual in that, in my opinion, there was no citrus or pine notes in this IPA. It is pretty dry and bitter. Not a real good example of an IPA.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick , very well retained ivory head, with heavy lacing, over a hazy medium amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is light floral honey notes, cereal, mild hop spice.....taste is slightly sweet, cereal, mild hop spice, finishing with a light lingering hop bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, no alcohol, carbonation adds light acid, minimal tingle. This is a gentle take on an IPA. It is rather simple in both the malt and hop backbones in both aroma and flavor, and for the hop heads the bitterness is quite low. It is nicely balanced however, contains no technical flaws, and tastes good. BJCP 7/3/14/5/6

A hazy orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is light bread and resiny hops. The flavor is citrus and pine with a malty backbone.

vandc01 (42) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Light copper color, half a finger of head that dissipates quickly. Aroma - slight piney aroma, faint - not overwhelming Taste - Flat and dry...nothing special Palate - Very light, flat tasting...bitter at the end. I like better, but not like this. Nothing special

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2014
12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Orange and pretty hazy with a large, lacy white head. Aroma of toasted malts, citrus fruits, zest, floral notes and peppery spice. Flavor is medium bitterness, resinous hops, pine, light spice and minimal sweetness. Medium body with a crisp and kind of dry feeling on the palate. Ample carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Pretty bold.

boydmarq (48) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2014
12 oz bottle. I have a cold right now, but I should be able to detect SOME hops in the aroma. This is just a lifeless and utterly forgettable brew.

shrubber85 (7288) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Caramel malt and light orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet, lightly earthy toffee malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Light tinny aftertaste.

Patrickctenchi (3390) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle: Nearly clear amber with a thin, soapy head. Sweet grapefruit aroma. Very herbal/earthy bitter flavour..... It’s as if all the citrus element went missing between the smell and the taste.... Rather disappointing.
