Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Harpoon tulip glass. The color is a golden orange with a finger of foamy white head and some nice stringy lacing left on the glass. The smell is citrus flavor all the way with some of that nice hoppy aroma. The nose is full of the slightly dank hops with some slight green grass aroma. Grapefruit is here but also tangerine and a touch of lemon. The taste gets a tad bitter at first but then the citrus flavor comes and washes over the tongue pushing off the bitterness and letting some earthy, green grass flavor come in. There is tangerine in the flavor but not as pronounced as in the nose. There is a slight bready flavor in the background and there is also touch sweetness that last through the bitterness that comes back at the end. This beer has a pretty drinkable feel and is medium bodied to give it enough of a feeling like this beer has substance but is still pretty light for the ABV.

Hop nosh is a brassy hazy beer with a fine head of small white bubbles. the Aroma is of floral hops and a bit of natural sweetness. Taste is more natural sweetness on the front with a bit of hop bite. The body is fluid and lively. a very nice beer.

Hazy orange-copper color with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma and taste are grapefruit, citrus, pines, light caramel. Nice toasty malt body with a good residual sweetness. Benchmark IPA Iíd say, impressive for a Single Hop one! (the barkeeper told me itís single)

Poured from a 12 oz can. Appearance is dark and cloudy honey color. Aroma is citrus, sweet caramel, and biscuits. Taste is a fruity IPA, oranges and grapefruit. Palate is smooth and resin-y. Overall, this is a very quality IPA without inflated prices.

Bottle in Baltimore. Clear golden pour, white head. Aroma is fruity hops, pine and grapefruit. Some resin. Flavor is bitter, clean and fresh. Nice balance and a decent body. Clean, no-nonsense IPA.

Pours red-copper with a thinning head. Heavy hop, spruce, and resin aroma. Less citrus and tropical than many American IPAs. First sip was all hops and pine, a little on the boozy side. Strong hoppy bitterness, taste is solid but to me there was little in the way of complexity or change. I didnít dislike it all, but it wasnít my favorite offering of the night either.

Bottle purchased at Haskells in Maple Grove and consumed with commonshawn. Deep golden color with a burnt orange lean. Nice half finger of head that lingers for a bit. Aroma is pretty stock standard IPA fare with some citrus notes and a pine characteristic. Interesting to consume as the flavor isnít really upfront...hits you towards the end of the sip and at the back of the tongue. Bitterness comes through and an almost malty, bready quality prevails. Almost IPA bread in a way. Coats the mouth with a oily, sticky feeling. Strikes me as a unique and enjoyable offering.
