3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours amber-golden with thick white head. Aroma has some good tropical fruit, resin and overall a pronounced citrus herbal feel. Flavor upfront has slight sweetness with hop resin tingle followed by dry and long-lingering and lightly bitter hop resin aftertaste. A good IPA for the older generation of microbrewery with a nice delicacy as well as a bit of experimentation- a little smoother than Torpedo and not as high of an abv and a creative use of exotic hops. I will say, however, that Green Flash was doing this better 10 years ago and leave it at that. If there is any justice, it should be added to the list of potent potables in twin cities alongside Furious, Bermuda Triangle and Westside.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into goblet. Aroma isn’t very strong, but has a distinct resin forward quality, with grapefruit and floral notes. Appearance is clear amber with decent (1/2") white foam head that leaves nice lacing. Taste is lightly sweet, moderately butter, and lightly sour, I would say it’s very pleasant but not powerful. Palate has a medium body, creamy texture, and a slightly bitter finish. This is a really good IPA on the lighter side, and the price locally is hard to beat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can, at Eaux Claires music festival in Wisconsin. Had a few of these at the festival, definitely the best thing available. Wish I could have tried it properly in a glass, but still enjoyed it - nice tropical fruit notes with medium bitterness, not the most flavourful IPA but tasty and pretty well balanced. Would like to try it again sometime.

On tap. Very aromatic with citrus fruits and slight pine. Very clear amber, copper, and slight orange hue with healthy white head lacing nicely. Subtle caramel sweetness with orange marmalade and pineapple. Medium carbonation and soft bitterness. This is a really nice aggressive IPA that I can drink a lot of.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the "Drink Moar Beer!" tasting on 06/12/2015: Slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a bone white head that burns away steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Tropical fruit, hops and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrus, apricot, hops and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
