COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the foot of Barn Bluff once stood Chief Red Wing’s village, flanked on the west side by Clear Water Creek – a spring-fed waterway that originated near Sorin’s Bluff and flowed down a steep ravine to the Mississippi River. The early missionaries named it Jordan Creek, and as the land for the city of Red Wing was being developed, the ravine was filled in and the creek was forced underground. However, the creek continued to flow and still does to this day under the streets and through the basements of downtown Red Wing until it meets the Mississippi below the waterline at Levee Park. While the Jordan now mostly remains unseen, we wanted to ensure that it is not forgotten by making it the namesake of our hoppy, yet balanced, India Pale Ale.

5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy brass with light beige to off-white head. Fresh, yeasty smell features a pine scent. Weaker smell than I am used to in the IPA style. Light, quite dry, piney flavor. Herbal taste features a potpourri element. Citrus and apricot. Gets more complex upon multiple sips. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Seems more like an American Pale Ale or perhaps a Session IPA than a typical IPA.

Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy orange pour with a fluffy white head. Citrus hop nose and taste. Well balanced - very nice.
