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

Poured from bottle. Nice white head, golden color with slight amber hues. Not much aroma, but what was there was floral/herbal. Good, very bitter taste however it got slightly medicinal when it warmed up.

fiveacestx (907) - Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle - hazy orange with a skunky aroma. Bitter with a biscuit taste. Does not have the typical characteristics of a west or east coast IPA. Just all over the place. A dry finish. Not good at all.

After coming to Lincoln, NE for a family reunion I had slim pickings for craft beer. The restaurant we went to brewed their own beer. This is the IPA they recommended. It was just ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from the bottle at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours a clear golden orange with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a bit of citrus with some tropical fruits and a sweet grain. Flavor has a sweet citrus note supported by a bit of earthy grains and a touch of sweetness.

HuskerTan (1450) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. A- Oranges, gummies, citrus, juicy, subtle caramel, slightly bitter, spices. A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Citrus, tangerines, bitter, biscuits, caramel, strong spices. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. O- Not too shabby. Even had it a good month after the best by date. Lots of juicy citrus on the nose that fades with the head and turns into more of a caramel aroma. The taste is pretty balanced with a little bit of a strong spice taste.

DrunkSanta410 (807) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is lightly malty, biscuity and faint hints of hops and grass. Not much on the nose. Taste is light caramel, piney hops with a mild bitterness. Better taste than aroma. But not spectacular. Palate is lightly carbonated with a thin mouthfeel. Below average.
