COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic American IPA showcases an aromatic, bold hop flavor. Horizon hops and oats provide a sleek, velvety body and balanced bitterness while two pounds per barrel of dry hopping offer initial waves of citrus and pine. We’d give our left foot for another pint!

12oz picked up in a great trade with Jake65... Thanks buddy!!. Pours a pretty clear orange brew with a nice white head and drapes of white lacing. The nose leans toward a biscuity maltiness balanced by a good citrus/floral hoppiness. Flavor mirrors the nose with a nice bitter follow-through on the finish. Body and carbonation are both fine. Thanks again Jake!!

Feel really bad about rating this so low. But I gotsta. Awesome looking 12 oz can and a great Coen Brothers reference on top of it. Pours hazy and a bit chunky. Bit of a darker, reddish pour for an ipa. Well, for starters, it’s oxidized. But that’s not the only problem. Almost no hop presence, and plenty of butterscotch presence. Smells like someone threw a Werther’s wrapped in caramel and cardboard in there. And there’s something else just rancid in the aroma. I’d be more specific, but I don’t want to stick my nose back in the glass. Took a few sips and poured it down the drain. Total bummer. Sorry, guys.

Can. Pours a hazy good with white head, aroma is excellent floral hops. Taste is really nice hops, floral and fruity. Some caramel malts, balanced and slightly bitter at the end. I like this quite a bit, which surprises me.

From a can brewed in Fargo, ND. Fruity, floral and spiced hop flavors. Malty and toasted toffee. Better from a can than the bottle version, which is odd. Not to bad.

Well...time to give credit where its due ! This beer is excellent! Pours a nice golden light copper with a slighty off white two finger head. Aroma is citrus, big orange, slight lemon, slight pineapple, pine is obviously present behind the citrus. Some sweet malt on aroma. Taste is basically the same as the nose. Starts with nive citrus, rolls into some peach right before big pine bitterness. Finishes with lingering bitter and slightly sweet malt. Not balanced but very good! Probably the best thing I?ve had from these guys yet! One off put with this beer is the cloudiness. It is quite cloudy for no apparent reason. Not really anything bad...just kind of weird looking. Excellent! If you get this on tap or in a can, its Fargo made and good. Bottle=contract brew=bad.

Bottle thanks to jake65: Poured a murky brown copper with a two finger huge off white head. Aroma is sharp hops. Taste is nice edgy floral hops and soothing malt.

12 ounce bottle thanks to jake65. Thanks! Pours a translucent copper with a big white head of foam. Very good retention. Aroma has notes of grass, grapefruit, and pine. Smells very clean and crisp. Taste is hop forward in the bitterness, but nicely balanced with a bready finish. This is a really good beer. ddon’t know why it’s rated so low.

At last, I have found a North Dakota beer. I’ve now had a beer from all 50 states. Thank you Brad! The beer is golden yellow with a white head. Mild haze. The aroma offers pine, hops, resin. Hop forward with a sturdy malt body. Tasty with lingering pine notes. Well balanced and flavorful. A solid beer.

Bottle:   Amber, a little fiery, large foamy off-white head, nice lacing, moderate carbonation.   Soft citrusy nose, some pale caramel notes, a touch bready.   Pale hops up front, a little citrus peel and pith.   Smells a bit sturdier than it comes across on the tongue.   A little musty too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A touch mealy with some light metallic notes on the finish.   Certainly smells better than it tastes, but its not as bad as I thought it was going to be.
