Leighton (10861) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Draft at the Minneapolis airport location. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. The aroma has leafy hops, some dried orange, a bit of toasty malts. Medium sweet flavor with crunchy leaves, pine, orange rind, toasted caramel, dry bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with bitter, toasted grass, faint melon, dry orange, bread, toasted caramel, leaves. Very average stuff.

yngwie (13529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. An unclear, orange-golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head of fingerthick height. Pine cones, peaches and orange in the aroma. A tad sweet on the palate, full-bodied and soft. Lacks a bit on bitterness perhaps, but with solid flavors from the hops, peaches, orange and pinecones. Lasting finish. Sure a fine brew, one I could easily drink a few of. 130705

Tmoney99 (10590) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Draft. Poured a cloudy copper color with an average creamy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex hop and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

jake65 (2613) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - APR 9, 2013
Draft MSP. Hazy dark copper pour with two fingers of creamy beige head. Citrus aroma with light caramel. Taste is mostly the citrus hops, but with some light florals too. Clean and crisp. Not a world beater by any means, but refreshing and overall a decent IPA.

TheHOFF43 (1750) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2013
Tap at brewery. Some citrus hops. Pretty boring and nothing stands out. Meh.

mnmike (1031) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2013
On tap at RB brewery. Lackluster in the high expectations and crowded field of IPAs

wilnatp (563) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Aroma of citrus hops. Taste is a well balanced non-biting subtle bitterness.

I thought this was a decent IPA. Nice bitterness, quite attractive, lacing, etc. Overall, not lifechanging, but okay.
