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.

bookman10 (630) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2012
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.

DrSilverworm (6274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during my stay for GTMW. Pours a mostly hazy darker orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving decent bits of lace. Good bigger piney hop, some orange citrus, resin. Light caramel malt. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Lighter sweet. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Solid IPA. Day was dragging on a bit, this certainly woke my senses up a little, as advertised.

Draft. Your standard west/midwest style. More malt but very high abu, citrus and pine. Very close to a dipa.

fiveacestx (564) - Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle - very earthy tasting IPA that has a dirty cloudy dark orange look that usually goes along with this type of IPA. Has a dank aroma, medium body and finish.

Ericular (595) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a hazy orange. Overall it’s clean, crisp, with a slightly lingering grapefruit finish. Just a little too bitter in the finish.

One of or the best IPAs of the day. Tasted at Stanley’s Beer and Bacon Fest - May 17th, 2014 during Art-A-Whirl in Northeast. Notes were a bit light.

matt4054 (35) - Cottage Grove, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Very hoppy Minnesota beer, great smell and bitter aftertaste. Heavy to drink. Good for hop drinkers, but a little too much for me.

Scipio (685) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a hazy caramel in color with a long lasting off white head. The aroma consists of caramel and pine on top, to go along with grapefruit, pineapple, orange and grassy hops. The taste is bitter yet with a citrus tartness. There is pineapple and grapefruit standing out. Lesser impressions are pine, caramel, and floral hops. Aftertaste has grapefruit and pine, which is mild yet lingering. Medium in body, with a sticky texture, and lots of lively carbonation. This is a very solid IPA overall. Its bery drinkable and it isn’t to strong either. Recommended.

islay (1089) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2014
6 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom as part of a six-beer flight. Consumed on 5-30-14. Pours a bright and fairly deep gold. Nearly white to beige head. Noticeable lacing. Clear liquid. Scents of pine, melon, cream, tonic water, and grapefruit. Classic, good, and strong American IPA, especially West Coast-style IPA, aroma. Juicy, piney, resiny, bready taste. Also citrusy: Lemon, grapefruit, and lemon peel flavor elements. Medium body. Soft and somewhat lively in the palate. Nice, soft palate effects, but it would be even better with more liveliness. A darn good IPA overall -- and I’m a big fan of the style -- and a well made beer.

gopherfan99 (413) - CROATIA - APR 6, 2014
Tap, golden orange with a white head, citrus hop taste with some pine, medium bitterness, not a bad IPA
