COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. I accidentally pours all the funk into the glass. Hazy gold with big white head. Lots of lacing. Nose is orange and grapefruit. Taste is tropical with grapefruit pith in the aftertaste.

On tap at Orchid’s. Not a lot of aroma, but the taste makes up for it. Nice lingering bitterness. Goes well with spicy Chinese food.

Ratman197 (10710) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread and light lemon zest. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness and light citrus with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Bottle - one of many over the years. I have to disagree with many of the other reviewers. As an IPA drinker that was weened on the best of what the west coast had to offer I find this a well-constructed and exciting IPA that I always look forward to. WI is not a state known for its IPAs but this stands out. It pours hazy golden- bottle conditioned? - nose is orange peel and just a touch of passionfruit and mango, some light yeast notes like fresh bread. Flavor is textured barely cereal supplemented by creamy mouthfeel, some citrus at the sides and at the end. Finishes long on a citrus peel note with a pleasant bitterness that brings back all of the goodness that transpired from nose to quaff. I much prefer this to almost every MN IPA - Hop Dish and Bent Paddle excluded - and would even class it close to some of my MI favorites.

Nuffield (3761) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Yellow. Grassy nose, astringent front to the flavor, immediately not pleasing or balanced. Long bitter finish. Not to my liking. (at Ale Jail Anniversary Party 2014)

fiercepanda (607) - Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2014
A hazy yellow beer with a soapy white head. The aroma is grass, lemon, and funk. The flavor is citrus, floral, and fairly bitter.

twindadplus2 (625) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Hazy orange amber color with a thick, bright white head. Aroma is reminiscent of candied grapefruit and sourdough. Flavor is crisp citrus bitterness with a little bit of malt at the end. Full bodied and creamy on the palate

Draught at Toppling Goliath. IPA/Double in malt alcohol aroma. Low hop aroma and taste. Decent.
