Bottle from Happy Harry’s in Fargo, ND. Semi-hazy orange pour with a small but soapy white head. Floral hops dominate, with some citrus hops. Sharp bitterness on the back end but fairly well balanced. Solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep orange tinted gold body with a long lasting bright white head. The nose is fairly lively with grapefruit with some peanuts and apricots. The nose is fruity and very inviting. This tastes a lot like orange peels and bread crust. there is also some dry hay and old books in the finish. A decent and clean dry IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is spices and malts. The flavor is citrus, spices, malts and a mix of tangy and mild tartness. Interesting but not incredible.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Looks amber. Aroma of floral/lightly citrusy hops plus a nice pale maltiness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad IPA, but not the best - they should make it hoppier.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pretty hazy golden color with a big head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is malty at first, doughy & lightly toasty, this gives way to a more dominantly floral and citrus hop aroma with some light notes of graham cracker.
The flavor is bordering on aggressively bitter, but there is a touch of malt and graham cracker sweetness in there that add to a pretty good balance. The hop flavor is citrus rind, honestly it’s fairly one noted, but it’s not bad either. I can’t say that I love this beer, but it went down very quickly... Something needs to be more refined in the hop character, but the way the malt plays here is pretty cool.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent copper orange with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of semi-sweet caramely malts and fresh piny resiny hops. Body starts lightly caramely malty sweet with a crisp bittering and flavor hoppy presence before a crisp bittersweet finish. A decent IPA
