Clear orange/gold pour with a quickly-fading white head. Pretty clean nose, mostly citrus with a little resin, donít get too much from the malt. The flavor is outstanding. Unlike Furious, which I think has a very broad, tongue-coating bitterness, this beer is very focused. A powerful citrus bitterness hits the center of tongue first before giving way to a long, tonic water/quinine bitter finish. Very clean and dry. Reminds me of Two Hearted, but this is a little less forgiving. Awesome beer.

Clear gold thick pillowy head. Nose of caramel malts, pine, grapefruit. Taste is fairly bitter on a pretty rich malt body but hops cut any sweetness from getting out of hand. Good west coaster. I bet I previously rated Furious higher but I prefer this over the one I had the other day.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can, canned on 9/8/16. A bit of a gusher. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a big rocky white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass a little.
The aroma is subdued - sweet perfumey biscuity malt and grassy hops.
The flavor is sweet biscuity malt with some fruit and grassy resiny bitter hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly watery.
Overall, an OK IPA.

Another american IPA but I sure do enjoy it. Can sit down and have a few of these bad boys before the hops start to get to ya.

On tap @ Surly. Pours hazy medium golden with thin lacy white head. Aroma is bright juicy hops, pine and mango notes stand out. Taste is sweet light caramel malt, bitter but juicy hops, great citrus flavor. Did not have them side by side, but by recollection I liked this better than Furious or Todd.

Aroma of hops is obvious. Hazy with a color of straw. Very beautiful head with a nice lace. Hoppy flavor is very strong and covers the sweetness of malt.. But later you can tell the malty flavor, a sense of sweetness comes. Dry finish,carbonation is moderate.

Tropical fruits, light passion fruit, some floral hops, light pine. Clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light bitter. Citrus fruits, more floral hops, grassy, turning quite bitter in the finish, lively carbonation. Decent IPA, quite bitter in the taste. Can at the brewery, Minneapolis.

The description for this beer is utterly retarded. But I guess that was the intention. Well played, Mr. Brewer. That said, this is a good IPA, and may say West Coast Style on the can, but it struggles in this style category to be outstanding. Smells nice, pours nice, tastes nice.

Dark amber in color, frothy head, fruity scent with a little pine. Easy palate yet bitter in taste.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 Pounder: Honeycomb, soil, caramel, pine needle nose, some ash. Hazy amber, medium yellow head. Honey and lemon, tea and lemongrass highlights. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice malt bill and tasty beer, but itís way more like the mythical east coast style IPA than west coast style.

On tap at the brewery. Yellow pour with a white head. Citrusy hop bouquet. Taste follows suit. Well balanced and easy sipping. Loads of caramel malts smoothness.
