UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 sample at pub. This was a good one. One of those that has the balance down nicely. Plus the hops were dominated by pine taste which I love. The mouthfeel is a little thin, but this is just a straight up good session beer.

Had this one on draught as part of the sampler flight at the brewery in Duluth, Minnesota. Hazy, dark orange pour with a filmy white head, piney floral hoppiness with some pineapple. Extremely bitter, especially for an APA, with an unexpectedly alcoholic finish. Great!

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
On the hoppy end of things, good complexity, cuts spicy food well but leaves its own little tingle. Piney. Plain golden color. (on tap at brewpub)

JK (4615) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2007
A light orange color. Bitter, herbal hop flavor. Some citrus. Simple and good.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2007
On tap at the Fitgers Brewhouse in Duluth, MN, pours a hazy golden amber brew with a minimal white head that diminishes to a fine film and slick lacing. Aroma of sweet honey, citrus peel, and powdered sugar. Taste is medium body, some sour citrus, and a grassy pine bitterness. Finish is dry with a slight citrus aftertaste.

Stine (1629) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Dark amber colored and brisk. Lemon hops, oranges in the aroma. Biting, spritzy aerosol flavor, crystal malt, powerful sugar-glazed grapefruit. Uninvitingly metallic mouthfeel and not enough nuance to this one.

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
Veldy (65) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2006
I loved this beer! Excellent hop aroma with a strong cascade nose. Bitterness was perfectly balanced. Perhaps the only weak point was the mouthfeel was slightly weak in the draft pour. I tried both the draft pour and the cask pour. The cask pour was slightly hazy while the draft was not. An excellent American Pale Ale and makes a great staple.

auerbrau (3179) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Clear gold with good while lacing. Strong floral burst. Sweet hops grapefruit flavors. Tart. Finishes strongly bitter. Light wheat and fruit smack in the background. Average.
