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.

Pours copper with minimal white head. Smells like pine and citrus, some melon, but overall fairly nondistinct, though pleasant enough. Taste is dry, slightly citrusy, some hay-like malt backbone, but the flavors give way to the bitter, sticky finish fairly quickly.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

jmagnus87 (2330) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2013
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.

Atom (1277) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2013
12oz bottle pours a hazy amber with a large khaki head. Aroma is malt forward with fruits and dryness from the hops. Taste has a bland caramel malt with some dry earthy paper tasting bitter hops. I’ll avoid this one in the future for better options.

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2013
12 bottle. Unfiltered orange-copper color. Steady creamy off-white head. Really well balanced. No new schools citra/garlic hops. just a really nice classic American IPA. Drinkable, but still has a nice depth. Straightforward, but well done.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Golden/copper color. Had this side by side with a number of similar beers, and this one can out the worse for the comparison. Not very tight in the flavor profile, with some murkiness amid the hops. Not my style of IPA. (on tap, Groveland Tap, St. Paul)
