On tap at this good old West Bank brewpub. Aromas abound here and the subtle additions make this beer a local favorite.

This one has been on the list for a long time so thanks to the first sunday tasting for hooking it up. The hop aroma seems a little faint but the flavor is still there. Might have something to do with the growler travelling? Spicey peppery flavors. Little bit of a citrus bite. Thougth this was actually a rye ipa with as spicey as it was.

Part of a flight at the taproom. Pretty excited to finally try this one. Pours a clear reddish orange with a white head. An absolute citrus bomb. Orange, grapefruit, mango. Bittersweet finish. This beer is as good as advertised.

Draft at the brewery. This is a ’westie’ all the way. There’s a big perfumed aroma. This drinks like a big hoppy Miley Cyrus twerk ... like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on ’roids. Only hit is in the body, just a bit thinner than most ’big’ beers. (#5706, 8/31/2014)

Growler from the source shared with ck1. Pours orangey-amber with a spongey off-white head. Nice streaky lace. Aroma has citrus and pine, with some fresh fruit and caramel. Taste is of bitter grapefruit.spucy pine and some resin, with a malt backbone for balance. Medium bodied with some alcohol. Finishes nicely blended between bitter and sweet, and very fruity. Nice in the sample. More bitter - less fruity - in the growler than memory (older in the growler?). A very nice brew! 15.2

On tap at Town Hall. Pours a clear caramel orange color with slight edge head. Aroma is hop bitterness in the form of tropical fruit and grapefruit acidity. Flavor is same with a creamy orange citrus sweetness reminiscent of Mad Fox’s IPA. Medium bodied, active carbonation, orange zest finish.

Flight at town hall. Clear amber, white head, some lacing. Aroma: some caramel, some skunk, some pine, some grapefruit, but not a strong pull any direction. Taste: lightly sweet up front, but reasonably dry. Bitter finish with alcohol noticeable. Medium body, oily texture. Overall: a nice middle of the road ipa.

Up among the best. Pour was golden with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pine and floral. Flavor followed some fruitiness overall under it, just lovely. Mouthfeel was moderate to full. Excellent stuff.

Very nice dark golden orange with a medium white head. Smells of hops up front and a hint of citrus. Taste is a great balance of hops, malts, caramel and a crisp citrus finish. Great palate that has a great malt and hop balance. Citrus hints and a slightly bitter finish. Nice beer from a small local brewer.

Pours a clear amber with good head and lacing. Aroma is fresh pine, clean and floral. Taste is spicy citrus in the finish, staying flavorful but not overly bitter. I’d like to expound further, but MN’s ridiculous liquor laws prevented me from taking home a growler after 10pm.
