COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a dark, golden-yellow, with little in the way of head. Strong hop-pine nose. Flavor is dominated by the piney-bitter hops, with citrus notes and some subtle, underlying malt sweetness. Nice, clean mouthfeel with bitter hop finish. This is a strong IPA.

Lacy orange head. A little strange aroma. Decent ipa though not exceptional still drinkable.

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.

arminjewell (8679) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2015
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.

VeinAle (123) - Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2015
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

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.
