3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A brutal, richly malted and aggressively hoppy golden IPA. Good palate destroyer.
How: Growler, consumed fresh with Montréal friends, sent to me by oakbluff. thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Partly cloudy dark golden body topped by a small beige head.
In long: Nose is massively hoppy with lots of fruity and piney hops and also alcohol fumes. Taste has very nice toasted caramelized cereals, thick and sweet, very nice malt extraction here. Hopping is aggressive, piney and very resinous. Bitterness level is through the roof. This is truly a brutal beer, but it is a pleasant slap in the mouth. I liked this beer more than the people I shared the growler with, as usual I just laughed at their poor taste in beer, and I really don’t understand why they always say I’m too full of myself, yes all what’s inside me is mine, you guys are freaking weird if you have chunks of other people inside you.

Minnesota Winterfest 2013. Copper color with a large head. Aroma of citrus (major orange), grass and it just smells bitter. Strong bitterness in the flavor. Moderate caramel malt.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Toffee envelops lightly citrusy hop resins in this sweetish strong ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam garnishes the misty light russet.
-Hops aren’t bright enough for my tastes in Double IPA.
-A biscuity touch is also found in this decidedly malty strong ale.
-Carbonation is fluffy, making the residual sugars feel lighter than the flavor profile alludes to.
-The resinous hop bitterness is leveled to the rest of the brew’s medium-high intensity.
From a growler.

Growler. Dark tan pour, small frothy head and an aroma of strong tropical fruit and a little hops. Flavor is also nice tropical fruit (pineapple, mango), some pleasantly sweet hops and just enough malt to balance this beer out nicely. Really well done!

"Town Hall 15 Year IPA". A marvelous aromatic and flavourful IPA. All the typical IIPA aromas and flavours, wonderfully balanced.

On tap at TH, this is that darker color IIPA that you see, its thick and dank.. well hopped and tasty, not a citrus bomb but more of a pine resinous IIPA.. really quite tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big time citrus hop aromas and a bit of resin. Taste is a big pine/sweet bitterness that fades well.
