Date: August 11, 2011 Mode: Draft Source: Fitgers Brewhouse, Duluth, MN Appearance: Translucent orange with no head. Aroma: Hoppy. Flavor: Consistent with aroma and bitter finish. Other: Easy to drink and decent for style. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2010
On tap at Fitgers. Pour was medium hazy golden with a white head. Aroma was of cascade hops, some spice, peach, and grapefruit. Flavors were similar but a bit more rough on the tongue. Good brew, but could have been smoother. EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Tried as part of a sampler on our way to haul the sailboat for the winter. Nice pale ale. Kind of like a Summit but with more flavor. Left with a growler. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2009

Pale hop aroma. Small white head. Golden coloured hoppy and pine flavoured with a crisp and slightly dry bitter finish. zer0crew (119) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2009
On tap at Fitger’s Brewpub in Duluth, MN. Pours a clear amber-red color. Has hints of hops in the aroma and strong hops in flavor, but seems much more reasonable than their El Nino IPA. Medium bodied and a tiny bit dry, but I would definitely drink it again.

[Tap] Part of the brewpub sampler back in August. Pours an even amber color with wisps of white head. Aroma of sweet biscuit and lots of pine. The taste certainly consisted of more pine than citrus, which was quite tasty. A good amount of caramel malts added a pretty decent balance to this beer. Could have been a little thicker, but a nice robust pale ale overall. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Sample at the brewpub Dark gold/amber with a white head. Good hops all around, a bit nutty as well, good hop finish, a little piney as well. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy with pine, citrus, and some grains. Flavor is also hoppy though well balanced and features more pine, citrus, grains, sweet malts, and some earthy notes. Quite enjoyable. BVery (10327) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2009
TAP: pale amber pour, pine hop on the nose. Fairly well-balanced, medium-body, and citrus on taste. satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2008
on cask at the brewpub. i love a good pale on cask so long as its nicely bittered. well this is not, but it brought something else to the table to really make me scratch my head...and smile. the hops i craved were replaced with mysterious fruity notes, matched by the almost tropical valencia color. wonderful body might have just been due to an excellent pour by the barkeep but either way this is a winner.
