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. Itís 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!!!!

Canít hanks TheHoff. Been looking for this state tick for a while. Nose is light orange to lemon with some fruitiness. Can is red. Taste is initially mostly bitterness then shows a light lemon citrus flavor. Finished with a drying pithy, almost tannin like bitterness. Second swig isnít nearly as harsh on the finish but does reveal some alcohol notes. A little burp reminds me of that harsh finish. Not great but not to worst Iíve had

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a flavor standpoint, this beer is a mess. They use 5 hop varieties, and for me that causes an identity crisis. It?s a spicy floral piney muddled mess. Nice malt backbone hidden by the hops. Itís not overly hoppy, I just feel the flavors don?t play nice together.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured a pale amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of fresh hoppy citrus notes is quite pleasant. Taste is also dominated by fresh citrus notes with lightly sweet malt backbone. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Noting to write home about but quite enjoyable for the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. can Thanks to Willrunforbeer for helping me complete my states!! And Bacterial for trading this to him. Kind of a brown/ orange color with thin lasting head. Aroma is very piney with just a touch of malt.
The flavor has that said mentioned pine with ample amount carbonation. Mild bitterness with some sugar notes. Not bad. Brian thank you much for the Christmas gift, very nice to get this final, hard to track down state.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Can. Pours a copper hue with a frothy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, marshmallow fruit salad, caramel, slight tropical fruit and decent malt tones. Taste is similar with a decent hop bitterness throughout that quickly turns citrus, piney, resiney, some tropical fruit. Medium body. Finishes with a lasting bitter hop profile. Not bad but like their pale ale better.
