3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle @ home, courtesy of those wonderful Bierkoning people. Enjoy by date was 07/25/14, so more than three months past. Nice clear amber color. Off white head, stiff as whipped cream, with good retention and lacing. Aroma’s: bready & caramel malts, some fruit, light resin. Retronasal there’s hoppy acidity, bready malts and bitterhops. Flavor is moderate to full bitter, with just a light malty sweet backbone. Alcohol doesn’t feel like 6.5%. Body is light to medium. Finishes a bit dry, with a long lasting herbal bitterness. Still not bad.

Bottle from sampler. Amber with a clingy white head. Floral, lemon rind, wet hay, and french bread. Moderately bitter with a lingering floral taste. Body is medium with a soapy feel and good carbonation.

A hazy copper beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is citrus and grassy hops with strong malt. The flavor is resinous, grass, and citrus with puckering bitterness.

Picked this up in our last trip to Minnesota. It’s ok. Started out kind of sharp, but it evened out as it breathed a little. Good dose of citrus flavor.

12 oz. bottle to stemmed glass. Reddish amber color with a light tan head. Aroma was grassy. The first taste was that of a sturdy, fruity beer. The beer finishes nicely, with a moderate IPA bitterness I was looking for.

Pint in mankato at paglias pizza. Nice drinkable ipa that goes well with the pizza. Not as hoppy as other ipas.

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Bozeman MT. Pours a clear copper with a massive off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of high plains prairie grass. Crisp earthy finish.

bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark amber with an orange hue and loads of chunkies floating around. Hmmm.... Aroma of caramel malt and dank hops. Taste is medium bitter. resinous hops and a little honey. Full bodied with a thick texture. Carbonation on the fizzy side and a decently long finish. Overall, meh. Drinkable but kinda weird. Nothing to seek out.

Nose has some citrus, hops profile is decent but malt balance is disappointing. Neither bad nor good

12oz bottle-lt tan head with trailing lace-hazy to cloudy amber/orange with particulants in the last part of the bottle. A-resin, citrus-orange, med malt-toasty. T-follows. Nice.
