COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With the hops and malt fighting for contention, Haymaker IPA won’t back down. The rich, malty base provides the windup for the hops’ crisp, bright citrus flavors. Go toe-to-toe with this well balanced and devilishly drinkable IPA, and this double dry-hopped phenom will knock you out.

4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Mankato, Minnesota. Consumed on 4-25-15. Pours a hazy, orange-bronze with nearly white, frothy head. Hay dryness and cereal scent in the aroma. A touch of vomit-y beeriness drives down the smell. Clay and melting plastic scents. Pine and hay grassy dryness in the flavor. Long, likable, quite dry aftertaste. Very dry even for the style, which I like. A bit of lemon and clementine in the flavor. Also lemon and orange Fruity Pebbles in the flavor, an effect that I am picking up more and more these days and that I don’t like. Lively and frothy in the plate. Decent across the board except in the aroma, which is mixed. Definitely not outstanding in any area. I like it less and less upon multiple sips.

Bitterness that isn’t super strong but lasts for a really long time. Color is a golden orange. The head was very thin and light tan. Did not detect many aromatics.

Pour on tap at Beer Dabbler, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, biscuit into some orange, slight yeast into a bit of grain, spice, finishing with some earth. Taste was a mix of grass, orange peel, slight grain into some caramel, toffee, some toast, finishing bitter.

Pours a hazy copper with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus fruit and grassy hops. Flavor is light malt, bright orange and grapefruit, with some grassy notes on the finish. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Not bad.

deyholla (8120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Sampled from the tap at New Bohemia. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has sweet citrus with a touch of bitterness and a strong earthy grain backbone. Flavor starts with a touch of sweet citrus but is mostly bitter grass and earthy bread.

PotjeBier (1999) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2014
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.
