4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a clear darker gold with a one finger white head. Really good head retention with decent lacing.
Aroma is much better than many other IPA’s I have had. Lots and lots of pine along with a touch of citrus. Really a nice blend of earth and citrus here. A little bit of light wood too with pinecones.
The flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. More pine than citrus but not nearly as strong as was present in the aroma. Moderate to high bitterness throughout along with some more wood and pine resin. Finish is moderately sticky with bitterness lingering long after all flavors have subsided.
Overall, a better than average IPA. It is definitely hop-centric with malt being nearly undetectable but the hops in this really work well. One to pick up every now and then.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at Elevated on S. Mpls. Consumed in pint glass. Golden orange with minor off white, maybe tan head. Huge aroma of hops and pine. Leads into a hop forward IPA with some caramel malt balance. Slight pine and floral. Aftertaste is resiny and slightly bitter. Coats the mouth with an oily presence. Easy to drink and enjoyable although not as unique as expected.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice enough IPA. Clean sweetish caramel malts but not too much, bright fresh citrus and floral hops, good balance, semi-dry at the finish, almost creamy mouthfeel.

Very nice beer. Good copper color and fruitful head. Hop palate is not wrecking but enough to know what you have. Decent alcohol carries.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, golden amber color with white head. Aroma notes of tropical fruity citrus/piney hops and caramel malt. Taste adds bitter grapefruit, resin, citrus zest, some dankness and herbal notes. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, oily, dry with lingering grapefruity/pine hop bitterness. Wonderfully complex IPA.

Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy Amber with off-white head. Nose is bread and citrus. Slightly bitter, maybe some grapefruit to taste. Usually not much of a hophead, but I do like this one.
