Crowler shared by Brad. Hazy yellow orange appearance with an off white head. Dull, chewy flavor. Some celery, fresh cut grass, and bitterness. Not a fan.

Pour out of crowler, hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, citrus peel, soft herbal and pine notes as well. Taste was a mix of spice, orange, grapefruit, slight yeast into some herbal notes, bread, finishing slightly bitter, dry

Crowler, thanks to Steasy66. Slightly cloudy bright yellow with large foamy off-white head, citrus peel aroma with mango, medium carbonation, medium bitter citrus-mango taste, bit of pineapple, smooth body, long medium bitter citrusy finish. Very nice, a good IPA.

On tap at Republic. Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of citrus and tropical fruits with sweet grains and bread backing. Flavor has sweet citrus and tropical fruits with sweet grains and bread supporting.

Cloudy orange color. Big hop aroma with citrus and pine. Sweer and very soft palate. Hops are botter, a floral character, some more pine.this is excellent and one of the best IPAs in Minnesota.

Steasy66 (1158) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Hazy orange with almost no head. Aroma is bready and a bit floral. Flavor is solid, sweet some citrus, piney finish. Served way too fucking cold. A bit thick for an IPA but hat is the NE style part I guess.

3.6
BVery (11512) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Tap at the taproom. Hazy dull orange pour with a foamy white head. Juicy citrus aroma and taste. Kind of a grassy astringency late. Very good.

4.1
Bacterial (3080) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2017
12oz pour at the brewery (should be 16oz!). Murky NE-style IPA with a massive citrus hop nose and character. Mild bitterness. Juicy and delicious.

islay (3185) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Supposedly 5 oz. pour (seemed like 4 to me), on tap at the brewery’s taproom in St. Paul, Minnesota on the afternoon of its initial opening on 3-13-17. Hazy, orange/gold. More dull than bright. Small amount of beige head. Not icky and actively ugly like the muddy, cloudy New England IPAs that represent the worst of the style, but it needs more head. Orange and vanilla scents. Fruity pebbles. Strong aroma and probably is what they were going for even though it’s not to my preferences. Cream sent. Mint and eucalyptus scents when I return. Orange, juicy taste. A slightly dry tang in the finish. Peach flavor. Too sweet and fruity for me. Inadequate bitterness and excessive juiciness, as is the hallmark of the substyle. Soft in the palate. That provides a nice contrast to a strong, dry, bitter IPA but just feels limp when combined with the juiciness in this case (and in the case of most New England IPAs). The exact opposite of what I am looking for in an IPA. It’s hard for me to say whether fans of the New England IPA substyle will like this beer in particular, but I don’t.
