3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Finally reviewing this one after having this one many times. Reviewing this one from JL beers in fargo,ND. on tap into a tall boy a nice light brown gold color with a thick white head that leaves about a quarter inch of head. No bubbles as you stare throw it. Smell is of floral hops and some citrus. The taste is of great bitter hops and then mellows, but the bitterness lingers and there is some carbination once it enters. It’s not really balanced it for a person who likes hops this is just right with the hop linger. Over all a well brewed beer keep it coming Fargo!!!!

can. bold hop flavor? not really. It was a passable classic American IPA - citrus and pine as advertised, moderately bitter. Neither bad nor a standout. 1st ND beer!

Poured from a 12 ounce can. The aroma is filled with a citrusy cardboard, and followed up with bready maltiness. The flavor is toffee, cardboard, alcohol, chocolate. No hops in flavor. Footbalmed.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12-oz. can. A bright aroma of juicy tropical fruit wafts from the snifter accompanied by a faint trace of dank pine resin. Clear light copper in color with a brief head. The taste is surprisingly quite malt-forward with only faint citrus hoppiness to indicate it’s an IPA. There’s also minor traces of copper. The body is fairly light. Unremarkably mediocre outside of the pleasant nose.

Can. Nose is sweet caramel malts, some orange and light pine hops. Burnt caramel, chemical like astringent hops, bitter and caramel sweet at the same time. Mess of a beer.

Clear amber pour with a single finger head. Aroma of tropical fruit. Smells very juicy. Mouth is on the lighter side. Taste has some citrus, pine and a little caramel. Bready. Bitterness isn’t overpowering. Very dry finish. Lace present.
