COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

Eells (64) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Poured light in color with a little white head. A strong but not overpowering citrus aroma. First taste is grapefruit balanced crisply with malt and hop flavors. Not as hoppy as most IPAs, almost more reminiscent of a summer ale.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 27, 2010
12 oz bottle. Clear golden amber with a thick off white head. Big hop aroma, citrus and floral, light malt too. Flavor is lots of hop bitterness that is balanced out with the light caramel malt backbone. Medium body with average carbonation and a nice dry finish. Very fresh, very solid IPA.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange amber with a medium creamy/bubbly off white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of wonderful foral and mixed citrus hop notes, light caramel, and American two row based malt sweetness. Flavor of nice citrus, pine and floral hop notes, toasted malt, some caramel and moderate hop bitterness.

mcox90 (1886) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 22, 2010
12 oz bottle from jbye4334. Pours a light orange with a 1/2" off white head. Aroma is orange peel and piney hops. Middle of the road palate with average carbonation. Citrus hop flavor. A bit one diminsional, all hop with out much malt to sweeten it. On the dry side. Bitter, hop finish.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - MAY 20, 2010
12 Oz. Pours a clear copper gold color with medium head that leaves great lacing. Everything in this beer is all about hops. Heavy hop aroma with notes of citrus, floral, slightly resinous incredible hop aroma. Flavor comes on with a very nice but not overwhelming bitterness rounded out with deep malt characters that contain little sweetness. Beer is medium bodied with a well rounded finish, just the right amount of carbonation. My favorite IPA of all time...

oakbluff (436) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
12 ounce bottle- pours a light orange/yellow with good clarity. Minimal head, some soapy lacing. Aroma- very ripe tropical fruits (mango, pineapple) with some bready sweetness. Taste- good blast of hops in initial sip, same earthy, meaty fruit flavour. Malt profile is balanced well with the hops providing a background sweetness to counter the bitterness. well balances. Body is on the light side with the beer drying out in the finish leaving a citrus fruit rind taste. Has a mineral undertone on finish which is somewhat out of place. Carbonation is pretty much spot on for style. Pretty darn drinkable

badgerben (4849) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Copper color with a quickly falling medium head. Aroma of dried lemon peel and a bit of spiciness. Taste of stewed vegetables, carrots in particular. No bitterness.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Guerde (1280) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2010
(bottle) Pours a clear light gold with a medium white head that sticks around. Scents of pine, grapefruit, and some fresh cut grass as well. A little bit of mustard thrown in too, which was a bit odd. Pickled jalapeno, cumin? (consulted with the spice rack, the case could be made) Not particularly vibrant or potent as some other IPAs. Taste has some subtle sweet undertones of caramel coupled with some citrus, almost reaches tangelo sweetness, but dulls out into powdered Tang territory which is regrettable. Finishes out a little bitter and develops a tea-like astringency which bears a passing resemblance to a first-flush Darjeeling. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is appropriate. Decent enough, but Im a bit puzzled by the high rating.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2010
On tap. Pours deep orange. Strong citrus aroma that i could smell before the glass was set down. Aroma dominated by grapefruit and orange with some pine present, too. Taste is filled with the same. Citrus and bitter grapefruit. Finish is dry. Great example of an ipa. Im glad minnesota now has this beer.
