3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Memory Lanes during bowling league. Pint glass. Copper color with minimal head. Aroma is slightly sweet with tropical fruit notes. Hops present too. Taste has plenty of resiny characteristics. Pine and citrus. Oily mouthfeel. Definite lingering bitterness like an IPA should. Slight malt hit in there too. Not really a balanced effort but it owns its hopness well. Good job, Indeed.

Can... Pours clear and brilliantly copper with a fluffy, off-white head. The aroma mainly features grapefruit, but also a tad of evergreen resin. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. Loads of citrusy, rindy bitterness, flanked by an afterthought of medium-roast malts. Finishes crisp, clean and fairly bitter. Iím really digging this. Can courtesy of BVery!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at Hoppy Gnome (St. Paul, MN). Pours a deeper dark copper hue, some decent haze in the middle, ruby copper glow with frothy tannish head atop. Nice cascading bubbles, darker body with a nice glow that grows on me. Initial is fruity and tropical, nice jabs of mango and tropical fruit, earth and citrus rind. Mellow grass, florals, a nice hop slant and a bit juicy life here. Gentle sweeter elements are a bit of biscuit, bread, gentle caramel. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a sharper floral appeal hits the palate quickly. Firm bitterness, grapefruit rind and earth. A bit pithy, big grapefruit juice glows with a bitter floral and subtle metallic backend. The darker body and more significant malt bill kicks a bit, some tropical fruit, guava and passionfruit life into the backend. Bitter green and kiwi life with florals, star fruit and earthy florals. A bit of almost mint coolness, some earth and decent hop bitterness, like Galaxy or something Australian. Bitter, a bit toasty as we finish with that firmer hop slant. Overall that biscuity and toasty malt profile jabs at times but the hops really run the show here, keeping this a bit lighter and firmly bitter. Tasty. While the nose is complex, it doesnít pop as strong. Flavors bring it back, that firmer base is a touch brooding but the hops keep it at bay.

Aroma is sweet with a noticeable malt presence. Pours a dark amber, nearly red. Taste is a bit citrus, biscuit, and sweetness. In the mouth it is thin and bubbly. A very good balanced IPA.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 Wow, this is awesome. Unlike so many IPAís that try to beat down the bitter and are unbalanced this one you get the nice citrus notes, tropical but get a nice malt balance. Itís almost drinkable like a session but beefier. Much darker than the standard IPA. Iíll be getting more of this.
