This IPA pushes the boundaries (BJCP American IPA top-7.5% ABV/70 IBU) and delivers what you would expect. This aggressively hoped IPA awakens the senses with aromas of citrus, fruit, and pine but will bombard your taste buds (with hops, a subtle malt sweetness and notes of caramel) that will put a smile on your face. Available for a limited time on draft.

Formerly known as Hop Prop IPA.

Picked up a six pack from Hops & Vines. Pours clear copper amber colored out of a twelve once bottle into a glass with an average sized dirty-white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of zesty orange and floral hops, a hint of caramel malt and light pineapple and another tropical note I can’t quite put my finger on. Taste is medium bodied, mild bitterness with flavors of various citrus and floral hops that hides most of the caramel malt. Over all I enjoyed this IPA even though the taste doesn’t linger in your mouth as long as most IPA’s do that I enjoy more.

12oz bottle to cervoise. Cloudy blood orange color. Small white head, decent lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, fresh hop varieties, pine resin, dank and sweet citrus. Taste is sweet grains, pine, woody, earthy, citrus and bready. Finish is wet bitter and not long-lasting.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, pine, grass into a bit of grapefruit, slight biscuit, bread, some slight spice. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, pine into a bit of yeast, slight earth into a bit of biscuit, some bread into a bit of spice, finishing slightly bitter.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2015 Aroma is sweet, very sweet. It is a darker IPA, this bottle doesn?t have much in the way of carbonation. In the flavor I am curious if that is oats I taste, or just the 7 hop chaos. Strong bitter profile with modest sweet notes.

Great aroma, not so great on the palate and flavor. A little too bitter for my taste, and a very 'hearty' tasting hop character ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Obfuscate (280) - Minneapolis, - DEC 14, 2014
First time I’ve had this local IPA and I must say I am very impressed. Really that classic clean, crisp, tart citrus, bitter on the back end west coast IPA but coming to you from the frozen tundra.

On tap at Yard House SLP. Pours a clear a golden amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has has sweet grains and sweet fruits with a light grassy backing. Flavor has more of a combination of light fruits, grass and a bit of sweet grains.
