One of our favorite styles, this ale is a hop explosion. Light in color, heavily hopped in the kettle as well as conditioned with several unique hop varieties. This creates a beautiful floral/citrusy nose which is balanced well by a smooth and full finish.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2007
On tap at the Happy Gnome during the RBSG ’07 pub crawl. Pours a coppery/orange amber brew with plenty of off-white foam head. Aroma of rich grapefruit, sweet malt, and some apple juice. Taste is a little thick, full bodied, more grapefruit bitter on the tongue, and some sweet sugar candi. Finish is slightly bitter and smooth. Nice lingering grapefruit flowery hops aftertaste.

Where’s the hops in the aroma. Is this English style?? This is very unhoppy for an IPA. A hint of dryness comes on late. Okay, but could be better.

JPDIPSO (5673) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Lightly hazed dark golden color. Moderate off-white head that settles rather quickly to a thin lid of small bubbles and a few isles of lace. Mild green grassy hops and earthy malt. I catch a touch of orange soap as well. Nice feel to this one. lightly oily and slick with just enough zip to keep it alive. LIght malt sweetness with some citric zest. Middle is full of citrus and light pine. A bit sharp and unforgiving in flavor. Perhaps a touch thin in the malt for my tastes. Linger is nice with a bit of malt and toffee.

Draft at capones. Pours a golden body with a small white head. Lots of hoppy aroma and flavors, pine, citrus, resins with a big rusty mouthfeel. not bad.

To steal from muzzelhatch: Draught pint shared with Argo0 at the Happy Gnome in St Paul, RBSG Minneapolis pub crawl, June 22 2007: Hazy orange, light white head and lacing. Nose of bright grapefruit and pruned spruce, pine, nice orange and plum. The flavor is nice and balanced, plenty of hops and a crisp forgetful, yet inviting finish.

Light gold body with a bright white head. Strong grapefruit with some almonds. The taste is very bitter with lots of grapefruit and some toast. A finish of bitter almond shells. Fairly well done with plenty of bitterness in the finish. Decent.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Tap at barcade. Better than the bottle I had out in MN a couple summers ago. Pours a mostly clear light cppery orange and a nice sticky head. Aroma is on the phenolic side- lightly grassy alogn with some piney and citrus cascade like hops- seems cold dry hopped from the phenols. A bit more grass and plasticy phenols int eh flavor with some tacky citrus and light pine needle- orange comes through the most on the citrus with some grapefruit but seems a bit solventy as it warmed. Ok bitterness and a sticky finish.

badgerben (4889) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Gold color with a thick head. Very citrusy aroma. Switches to pine in the flavor. Pretty strong on the bitter acid for a ’plain’ IPA. Almost herbal and grassy. Really nice.

muzzlehatch (4835) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Draught pint shared with Argo0 at the Happy Gnome in St Paul, RBSG Minneapolis pub crawl, June 22 2007. Nice lacing lasts in the glass as the moderate creamy head drops slowly atop the bright golden body....nicely hoppy though restrained aroma, caramel, grassy and dry....somewhat pungent body, light cidery tartness and some odd funkiness, grassy hops dry out and dominate the finish....pretty solid overall.

ChainGangGuy (4809) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Appearance: Pours a hazy, orange-copper body with a thin, wispy off-white head. Smell: Aroma of caramel malt and fresh citrus fruits with lesser notes of grass and buttery diacetyl. Taste: Caramel maltiness with a medium amount of sweetness. Light buttery hints. Hunks of juicy grapefruit. Medium bitterness and acidity - finishes same. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Drinkability: Diacetyl or no, it’s still an okay IPA.
