Had it out of a bottle. Has a partly hazy orangish hue, with a thin head and piney hop aroma. The taste is of solid hop with notes of grapefruit followed by hops again. Got it in a trade with amberbrews (twitter).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
aste has a wonderful balance of sweet malts and bitter hops. Buttery caramel rolls, citrus orange peel hops, pine bitters through the swallow and beginning to dry out into the finish. Clean, non-nagging hops that you can taste each sip without an obliterated pallet. Yet still very flavorful and hops being very much present.Medium carbonation prickle with some hop oil slickness.So drinkable, a hop thirst quencher with balance and terrific malt flavor.

Bottle at Marx in Stillwater, MN. Some hops in the nose. Mostly clear dark gold with a thin white head. Fairly one dimensionally hoppy without as much malt backbone to balance as many other top IPAs. No flaws per se; just needs more sweetness. High alcohol for an IPA so somewhat surprising its not sweeter.

Leads off aggressively like Rickey Henderson if Rickey Henderson downed a bunch of hops before a game. Taste is less hoppy than expected and leans towards a smooth finish. A pretty decent IPA rendition causing one to wonder whether Lift Bridge is more than just Farm Girl.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours amber with a thin light tan head. Nose is real dry, with biscuity malt, marmalade, and pine resin. Taste has dry bready malt, herbal hops, pine and citrus rind, and a bitter finish. Medium bodied and fluffy. Okay, but a little to bitter on the finish for my tastes.

12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan body. Foamy off-white head. Strikes me as a classic American IPA..big bold NW hops tones, rich body, crystal malt tones. Orange, grapefruit, mango..lots of hop depth. Solid offering.
