COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Garage Series.
Insurrection’s flavor profile is spearheaded by Nelson Sauvin and Mosaic hops added at a rate of nearly 4 pounds per barrel. Both hops are new breeds, and they combine to overwhelm the senses with an onslaught of citrus, white grape, and blueberry notes. An equally aggressive malt bill provides serious backbone and an ABV of just under 9%

Pour on tap at Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest, clear yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice pine, orange, grapefruit into a bit of lemon, some caramel, touch of biscuit, some earth. Taste was a mix of biscuit, bread, slight white fruit into a bit of orange, citrus notes, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty nice.

Bottle, from The Hoff43, I think. Slightly hazy reddish in color with a medium white head, excellent lacing. Nose is grapefruit and pine. Taste is mostly bitterness initially with a light citrus hop flavor. Medium to light body, moderate carbonation. overall, the hop flavor seems to be very subdued and light for a double IPA. bitterness dominates, and lasts into the finish. A moderate alcohol warming. just ok.

Draft at the Campus Club at the U. Hazy amber pour. Lots of citrus and malt in the nose. Lots of white head and lacing. Nice and hoppy, citrus and floral. A solid offering and nice to drink!

portableparty (2019) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a nice bright amber color with a tight frothy head that leaves a thin tight film and some lacing. Aroma is kind of dank resin pine mango citrus and a soft balance of caramel malt. Taste is bitter citrus resin pine hops soft spice bite and well balanced malt. Palate is full kind of creamy and finishes with a nice spice bite and warm feeling in the end. I like!

DalzAle (2009) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Growler. Clear dark tan/orange pour, no head, but some nice lacing and an aroma of nice floral bitter orange hops. Flavor is nice rich malt backbone which holds up nicely to more herbal hops, hints of spruce and bitter citrus most of the way through. Much better as this got a chance to warm up a bit, so don’t drink this one too fast.
