I found this to be very strange. The aroma reminded me of oatmeal and was very heavy. Taste was special, alot of hops, slightly bitter and some taste that I cant describe.. not bad

That was a surprice. Alot of hops and weird malt and spices. Smelled a bit like smelly feet, and some other smell i cant describe, weird though. Ther taste is fairly nice, alot of hops again, bittersweet and rich full body.

I had the beer that were brewed in MN. It was a great hoppy, malty Pale Ale. Excellent crisp flavor. Rivals the Victory, but not quite as hoppy. Citrus aroma and sweet flavor.

Interesting pale ale. Tends more toward the malt end of the flavor spectrum than do most pales. This is not bad however, as the malt is quite tasty. Nutty aroma, pours up nice off white fluffy head. Beer is chesnut colored. Nice flavor with initial roasted malt taste followed by a very short burst of hop bitterness. Definitely a quick finish as there is no follow through on the flavors at all. This is good beer.

Cloudy Orange, and is that a green tint, as well? Tan head. Earthy Pinecone aroma and flavor. Messy Bitter. Loooooong finish. More, Please...

Pours a medium amber color, kind of looks like an english bitter or pale ale. Aroma is hugely floral and hoppy, massive hops aroma. Very nice, though. Flavor is not as hoppy as i expected, and malts really come through well. Great balance, the likes of which I was not expecting. I'm impressed with this beer, as much as i thought i wasn't going to like it.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reasonable head, clear copper color. Impressive, bittersweet and almost overpowering hop aroma, complementing an outstanding clean and numbing palate. Slides across the tongue... Amazing. Taste is pale ale bitter, but still nice and malty. Packaging was colorful - the art was striking - but taken as a whole the bottle can't match the finish of your average premium microbrew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Initial head minimal and fizzy, off-white in color. Nice hoppy nose, medium bodied, fairly balanced.
Drinkable and enjoyable!

Big grapefruit nose. Copper/amber hue. Big sticky off-white head. Pale malts, supporting a very well balanced medium bodied brew. Caramel, light bread...Big heady hops. Pine needles and resin. This brew is so drinkable.
