Harriets West Side is an eclectic ale brewed to balance the brightest West Coast hops with a prolific Belgian yeast strain. It pours light copper with a vigorous white head. Subtle malt gives way to a fruity, citrusy, and slightly spicy aroma and flavor. Light bodied, effervescent, and seductively approachable.

Keg @ Harriet. Light copper pour with a white head. A bit hazy. Key lime citrus and spicy Belgian yeast. Peppered graham cracker. Some mild tangerine. Flavor is somewhat dry and spicy. Peppered peach. Mellow citrus smoothie. A bit sryupy, full. Moderate decent. Solid BIPA.

A great beer, especially while waiting for my flight in the Minneapolis airport. Orange, thick head, lots of belgian yeasty spicyness with a healthy amount of citrus.

dresden (1574) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Tap at MSP. Clear golden with a white head. Belgian yeasty aroma, with light citrusy hops. Taste is yeasty, some fruitiness, hops seem to be lacking for an ipa, but its a half decent beer.

On tap at Harriet brewing. Orange in color with light, white head. Heavy Belgian taste with limited top flavor. Great aftertaste.

Not the kind of IPAs I usually like. There is citrus and yeast flavors here, but light on the aromas.

commonmac (1188) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Tap at Edina Grill in a pint glass. Orange in color. Mild head but decent lacing. Smells sweet with only an undertone of hops. An easy to drink Belgian IPA. Milder hop profile than most IPA options which is appreciated in this case. Solid, if unspectacular local option.

Ericular (1013) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 Decent Belgian beer, but not my ideal IPA at all. Not much bitterness or any hop profile to speak of. The yeast dominates over the malts and hops. Call it something else. Update, more bitter. Not bad.

On tap in shaker. Poured a very attractive orange gold with a lot of effervescence and about a two inch head that dissipated fairly quickly. The aroma was bright and fruity, you can tell this is made with Belgian yeast immediately. Hop aromas were light but some hints of citrus. This is very much a session ale. There is a touch of bitterness in the initial sip but is quickly overtaken by a more fruit and sour taste. Carbonation is crisp. The Belgian yeast cut any malt character and the hops never really shine. This put me more in mind of a Wit than an IPA. While its always good to try another local brew I found this unremarkable and wouldnt seek out again.

This is a decent Belgian but a crappy IPA. Very little hop profile to it and overall just not satisfying.
