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!

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!!!!

mnmike (1031) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Can into a ipa glass. First North Dakota beer. Good aroma, caramel color, slightly different aftertaste than expected. From what I hear, those that first tried this in the bottles should now give this another shot in the cans.

Ericular (612) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a hazy amber with quickly fading head but good lacing. Aroma is hop-forward with citrus and pine. Taste is hop-forward as well, with a big resinous wave up front, drying out a bit with the bitterness mellowing but hanging on, eventually letting some malt through in the end. This is lopsided and perhaps heavy-handed in the hops department, but it turns out nice in the end.

hopscotch (9151) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle... Clear, dark ale with golden highlights and a large, fluffy, white head. Good retention and thick lacing. The aroma is a botanical blend of tropical fruits and pine resin. Full-bodied and creamy with airy carbonation. Relatively well-balanced for the style. The flavor is moderately bitter, bready and rindy - bread crusts and citrus peels. Crisp, tongue-numbing, tannic finish. Bottle courtesy of Bvery!

Tap in bumped pint glass. Light orange, nice head and good lacing. Aroma is slight fruit, some hop, and alcohol. Smells like a double ipa. Hop bitterness . Could be balanced better with something else though. Finishes with some sour grapefruit taste. Not bad , but could be much better.

Can thanks to a trade! Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grass and grain with just a bit of resin underlying. Flavor starts has grass and grain with a backbone of bread.
