3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange. Really clear. About half a finger of head. Smell is heavy on citrus, with a tinge of malt sweetness. The taste starts with bitterness, mellows into a sweet fruity hop and malt magic, and finishes with a lighter, dry bitterness in the back of your mouth. Centennial hops make an appearance, and an almost plum-like flavor is present. Is that Rakau? I’ve never had a beer with that hop before. Overall, I like this beer quite a bit. Much better than the standard Summit IPA offering.

On tap at Outback Steakhouse, Bloomington, MN. Fresh pineapple juice aroma with a little base malt. Crystal clear copper under a lacy, white sheet. Mostly tropical hops flavour with assertive, clean bitterness and a medium base malt and light caramel backbone. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. BB 11/27/16. (Little Brown Jug) Biwabik, MN.
Cloudy orangey golden color with a small off-white head.
Orange, fruity hops, mild bitterness, mild yoghurt notes and sweetish malt in the aroma. Not bad.
The flavor is fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness, dryness and malt. Pretty decent IPA. A bit thinnish though.

12oz bottle, can’t believe I haven’t rated this before . Dark gold with white head. Heavy grapefruit nose with hops. Bitter, cloying, strong grapefruit. Finish is the same, lasts long especially when cold. This beer gets more love than it deserves but it’s ok.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear gold, lovely white head, super lacey. Aroma of pine and celery. Crisp on the tongue, pretty good stuff, more an English style IPA, a nice bready, earthy flavor to balance the hops out.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 Bottle at Marriott MSP. Aroma was a nice citrus and citrus fruit, and a little bit of pine. Light amber color with a white head that lasts a long time, and nice lacing. A bit of citrus hoppiness in the flavor, that turns into a little piney aftertaste. Pleasant though. Med-light bodied. Overall, I thought it was initially an old school piney west coast IPA, but it evolved into a fruity combination of the two. Pretty nice! EDIT: Draft at Marriott MSP. Same comments as before.
