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

Not bad. Mike gave me a free bottle of this to try at Wesports Green Room bar. Mellow and dark orange. Fruity, zesty aroma. Sharp hoppy bitterness at end.

Orangish slight brown pour into a Piraat tulip glass.Good size head,gone soon.Hazy with bottle conditoned yeast pour. Fairly hoppy aroma of earhty,spice,pine,some ripe fruit and dankness. Pretty malty,sweetness is a bit cloying and it has a big bitter.Seems sweetly bitter. A kind of cereal sweetness with sticky carmel malts.Fairly full bodied. Big Piney bittering. This reminds me a little of SN pale ale. Fairly solid ipa.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 Dry-hopping has given this beer a very good aroma and the different varieties of hops create an equally enjoyable flavor. There’s not a lot here that stands out from other IPA’s but it’s a very good Nebraskan ale all the same.

Pours slightly hazy gold with decent size white head. Aroma is malt / grain and citrus. Nice Palate, goes down very smooth, caramel malts, piney hops, little bit of tropical fruit & citrus. Fairly normal but good IPA.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 19, 2012
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.

piscator34 (1889) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
Draft sample. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are a pleasant classic blend of clean pale malt, white and pink grapefruit, and herbs. Flavours are of more white grapefruit, lime pith and herbal hops. Medium bodied with clean bitterness. Solid.

Pours a peachy orange colour. Nice lacing. Some sweet citrus on the nose, but it’s a fairly hope forward beer with some nice citrus bitterness. Not bad.
