3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Pours a clear copper color with a large and fluffy white head that retains well. Aroma is standard IPA fare, nothing out of the ordinary, with pine, mint, and citrus zest (smells a lot like fresh kumquat). Pretty bright and clean, and this bears a striking resemblance to Indeed’s canned Day Tripper pale ale. The fresh, clean hops dominate and the malt makes nary an impression aromatically. The malts are more present in the flavor, with flavors of pretzel, obligatory caramel, and sweet lemon iced tea. Nicely bitter, but not overbearing, finish of hops which cleans up the sweetness really well. Mouthfeel contains the appropriate heft and toned down carbonation. Overall, this is a very solid IPA that I’d purchase more often if it were offered as a six-pack instead of a bomber.

This might be the best beer deal in the Twin Cities at $4.99 per bomber. Excellent golden hues, foamy head and intense hop flavor. Aroma is slightly piney. For hopheads on a budget who demand quality....look no further.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Very nice IPA from a local brewery. Pours a relatively clear golden yellow with nice sized, lasting head. Aroma full of fresh hops. Flavor is a good strong combination of bitter hops with citrus and a fairly smooth, sweet finish. Worth a try.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hoppy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.
