This is what beer is all about, a nice little bite at first swallow followed by a blossom of flavors delivered by our hand picked aromatic hops and carried through the end with a full fisted kick of alcohol content that rocks the richtor scale at 6.5%. Yeah, this is what beer is all about!

We grabbed this as a joke while at the store. That's exactly how it turned out to be, as expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It’s OK, but nothing great. A fairly crisp, light IPA. Citrus hop flavor. It was refreshing, although a little thin and a bit of metal to it.

This beer is dreadful. Taste like blood and metallic. Zero hint at hops. Barely managed two sips. Disgraceful.

bhensonb (12577) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Tallboy from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is pretty much not much at all. Maybe a light hop but ? Med body. Flavor is light caramel with what must be floral hop. It starts sweet, ends kinda bitter, but like most Minhas beers I’ve tried, it’s not wholly pleasant.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has minimal hops with earthy grains and backing hay. Flavor has some earthy grassy hops with a good amount of sweet hay and grains.

Available at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Gold pour, white head. Weak session IPA - nothing interesting in this one.

KimJohansen (10396) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2010
Hazy orange with a medium off white head. Hoppy nose with malt and grapefruity notes. Hoppy flavour with pine, grapefruits and malty hints. Kind of a thinnish body. Finished dry and bitter though.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. light grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and pine resin flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and resin lingers with light earth.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Tap @ Porter’s Pub in San Diego. Pours orange with a 1 finger tan head. light hoppy nose. Taste is sweet, and overly bitter with no citrus. This is pretty basic and basically poor ipa.

(On tap) This beer was extremely typical for an IPA, in all the right ways, and in none of the wrong ones. It had a cold, refreshing taste. The hops were strong, just shy of being harsh, which I think is ideal. Citrus tones are dominant in the hop aroma, and I find this pleasant. Like other IPA’s that I am a fan of, this brew has some richness to the malt, but is not heavy. It leaves a bitter aftertaste in your mouth, but not too much of one, and it is still somewhat balanced. I like it. I think this is a good IPA and I would recommend it. As I try more and more IPA’s I realize how many of them are poorly executed. This IPA passes the test, and ranks among the truly well-designed IPA’s.
