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.

Amber gold pour with a white head. Well carbonated. Aroma of pine with slight citrus and sweet malts. Taste is more of the same. Nice bitterness. Finish slightly lingers otherwise it is clean. Medium light body that fits well.

Grapefruit and citrus hop forward with apricots and good caramel maltiness. Flavorful IPA, quite good!

Draft at the brewery. Label this a "standard" American IPA. The aroma is a bit caged. The beer drinks with a decent malt backbone and a fairly normal balance. Clean, well made, but a tad uninteresting, yet still good, IMHO. (#5656, 8/28/2014)

Pours a lovely bright golden, very fresh pine aroma. Pleasantly bitter, slight citrus acidity. Hops are the main event, but it’s not in-your-face intense. The bitterness is well-rounded and balanced. Very good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a orange golden color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a bit of sweet cotton candy, citrus and some underlying pineapple and hints of caramel malt. The palate follows the nose and has some nice juicy hop character, pine, candied orange, pineapple, grass. The overall mouthfeel is a touch on the sticky side with a residual sweetness that does balance out the heavy bitterness late in the palate just wish it was a touch drier on the finish.

Tap at the Steel Toe tap room. Gold in color and a visually appealing lacing. Aroma leans on the pine expected from an IPA. Taste follows suit with an aggressive, yet palatable bitterness. Refreshing and satisfying. The shoe fits.

Nice pine aroma. Taste is hop-forward pine resin, a nice dry bitterness in the middle with slight malt balance in the end. Super smooth palate. Not bad at all!

The beer is golden and transparent, with ample effervescence and an inch of white head that leaves a sheet if lacing in its wake. The aroma brings candied citrus, resinous hops. Juicy with a bold hop character. Palate coating with some pine resin stickiness. Pretty good.

Tap at Happy Gnome St Paul. One delicious IPA. Pours a hazy golden orange. Nose is pine and some floral. Taste is also lots of pine, floral, and some grapefruit. Nice dry finish.
