BITTER - too much so. Not very enjoyable on it's own - needs a formidable pairing to match this bitter hop-filled ale. Not any sweetness to speak of - tart with a bitter beginning and finish.

Bottle pour. Decent beer here that doesn’t quite have as much hop profile as the marketing would have you believe.

Rate beer calls this an American APA, Beer Advocate calls this as an American IPA: I think it’s more of a Belgian IPA. There has to be Belgian yeast in this, even though no one has mentioned that in the reviews that I have read. I think this is a well brewed beer, and fairly well balanced but I’m not that big on Belgian IPA’s,, especially when the wild yeast and hop bitterness dominate the after taste!. I certainly won’t buy this beer again, even if I find it for $5.99, for a six pack, again

portableparty (2382) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours unclear dark amber with a tight foamy off white head that fades to a film and slight lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and earthy light hops. Taste has subtle bitter earthy hops and slight herbal qualities along with caramel malt and light spice. Palate is medium gritty and chalky. Decent.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Clear amber pour with a very small off-white head. Piney hop aroma with some very light licorice notes. Taste is a blend of citrus hops and sweet malt with a faint smoky taste. Hides the ABV quite well. Pretty decent APA.

camborne (1029) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Light to no head. No lacing. Hoppy and bitter but somewhat balanced. Like this brewery but this is not one of their best

Features a light brown creamy head. The aroma is rather pleasant. However, this is an EXTREMELY bitter beer, which I didn’t find pleasant at all. It’s over powering, so much so that you really can’t taste any of the flavoring which I’m sure is there.

TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper with foamy head. Some mild hop aroma. Flavor is hops but well balanced. Abv is well hidden. Nice APA

nuplastikk (6452) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2012
12oz bottle. I wouldn’t have associated sheep with an APA, more of a Bock or Scottish Ale thing..whatever....this doesn’t really fit in a style, something like an APA and an American Strong Ale combined. Orange-copper filtered body, thin off-white head. Mild and respectable soapy pine hop aroma. A pretty balanced creature, with big, yet mellow malt tones which plant the hops firmly in the backseat. Some fruity notes, could be amber malt, but maybe just the yeast. Pretty enjoyable beer.
