Tap at MSP. Clear golden with a white head. Belgian yeasty aroma, with light citrusy hops. Taste is yeasty, some fruitiness, hops seem to be lacking for an ipa, but its a half decent beer.

Draft sampler pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of citrus, malts and floral. Taste is yeast, citrus and malts.

Not the kind of IPA’s I usually like. There is citrus and yeast flavors here, but light on the aromas.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Edina Grill in a pint glass. Orange in color. Mild head but decent lacing. Smells sweet with only an undertone of hops. An easy to drink Belgian IPA. Milder hop profile than most IPA options which is appreciated in this case. Solid, if unspectacular local option.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in shaker. Poured a very attractive orange gold with a lot of effervescence and about a two inch head that dissipated fairly quickly. The aroma was bright and fruity, you can tell this is made with Belgian yeast immediately. Hop aromas were light but some hints of citrus. This is very much a session ale. There is a touch of bitterness in the initial sip but is quickly overtaken by a more fruit and sour taste. Carbonation is crisp. The Belgian yeast cut any malt character and the hops never really shine. This put me more in mind of a Wit than an IPA. While it’s always good to try another local brew I found this unremarkable and wouldn’t seek out again.

This is a decent Belgian but a crappy IPA. Very little hop profile to it and overall just not satisfying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 Decent Belgian beer, but not my ideal IPA at all. Not much bitterness or any hop profile to speak of. The yeast dominates over the malts and hops. Call it something else.
Update, more bitter. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample. Copper in colour with moderate carbonation. Quite floral upfront on the nose, followed by some rounded pale malts, and a touch of plastic. Sweet pale malt and tangerine are the dominant flavors, backed by a bit of dry grass. Moderate bitterness. Overall, this is one seriously mellow IPA... not really my thing, but others might enjoy it.

A great beer, especially while waiting for my flight in the Minneapolis airport. Orange, thick head, lots of belgian yeasty spicyness with a healthy amount of citrus.
