3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. The beer is fairly light amber in color. Moderate haze. Medium-sized white head. Good amount of lacing, fine retention. The aroma has some decent tangerine and mango upfront but there’s a deeper, less pleasant hop flavor below that. Big pine resin and a bit too much onion. Mild pepper, a little grass, some floral flavor, mild raspberry. Not bad. Taste is a step back, unfortunately. Big and bland pine resin bitterness. Plenty more onion, as well. Long grapefruit rind and pine finish. The sweeter hop flavors are quite mild here. Fairly dry. Only medium bitterness but lacking in complexity and good hop flavors. Mouthfeel has only mild creaminess, which is a surprise. Fairly light body.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours marmalade, medium eggshell head. Aroma of pine, bread. Taste is pretty well balanced but weak and one dimensional for an IPA. Not much to make me want more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can via trade. Pours a cloudy orange gold with a smallish white head that settles into an uneven ring and island of film, leaving a good amount of lace on the insides of the glass. Notes of orange citrus, wildflowers, pine, grass, celery, pale and sweet malts, tea with lemon, and light resin. Light-bodied, with medium-plus carbonation and a clean, citrusy, lightly bitter mouthfeel. Good IPA. Grew on me after a few minutes.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brilliant golden with a thin bust lasting rocky white cap. Amazing fresh floral and leafy hop nose with vibrant fresh lupulin oils and resins. Crisp big flavor with biscuity caramellish pale malt, loads of floral and leafy resins, a touch of grapefruit rind and a crisp, piney resiny finish. Really pleasant and restrained enough in bitterness to let the NW hops shine through.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can acquired as part of a beer sampler Christmas gift. Poured into a pint glass with a Lakefront Pumpkin Lager label. Color is a kind of hazy, light orange with a golden tinge. Lighter than other IPAs. Frothy white head initially that dissipates rather quickly. Nose feels rather typical of an IPA with citrus and pine hoppy notes and a little bit of a floral quality. Taste has a healthy dose of citrus as well with grapefruit prominent and a bitter pine resin finish. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Nothing really stands out about this option but it’s drinkable. First RateBeer entered beer from my home state. Happy it’s not terrible as my expectations of beer produced in ND were pretty low.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can. Slight hops in the nose. Taste bitter with slight maltyness. Could use more hop profile in my opinion.
