3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice copper pour with a persistent off-white head. I didn’t really believe the description before trying the beer, but I think they nailed it. A little pear and blueberry (??), lots of tropical fruit. Quite dank, too. Taste is equally good, but fades a little more quickly than I would like. I picked this up in the Day Tripper as well. Note sure where that comes from. Nice, relatively sticky mouthfeel. Very good IPA, and I have to say that it is great to see something brewed in the Twin Cities that approaches Furious.
Can: Caramel and lemongrass nose. Opaque rust, medium yellow head. Less sweet on the palate as on the nose. Dried leaves, caramel, tea. medium body, moderate carbonation. Dull hop presence, just past its best by date by a few weeks, so it isn’t fresh, but it didn’t hold up well either. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
Aroma is a nice citrus and slightly herbal. Medium bitterness, medium maltiness, slightly citrus hop bite. Decent. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2016
From a can. Ripe tropical fruits over acerbic pine and herbal notes; just a touch of biscuit malts comes through toward the finish. There’s a hint of a midwest IPA in here -- the malt bill is definitely there, and it’s darker in color -- but the sharp bitterness is more reminiscent of the pacific NW. Good!

Great Aroma, great color, great malt backbone for the hops. Not very hoppy in the flavor though. PartyFowle (954) - - FEB 24, 2016
Can. Dark for an IPA--scarlet/orange with a fair amount of haze and a tight tan head. Vibrant aroma is packed with pine needles and grapefruit pith, backed up by bread crust. Same deal in the flavor: pine and pith lead, accented by some mid-palate floral notes, all atop a layer of caramel and toasted bread rolls. Hop-laden, balanced finish. Really nice job.

Growler poured fresh from the brewery. Really don’t care for this beer. Pours a deep copper color - a big warning sign that it might not be apropos to call this ale pale. The taste is caramel malt heavy, overwhelmingly so. It clashes with the hops and provides a muddied drinking experience that feels cloyingly sweet. This beer simply isn’t my style of IPA, much prefer their day tripper. ronaldtheriot (1936) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Indeed Let it Ride IPA has a thick, cream-colored head, a clear, copper appearance, with a few stray bubbles, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of strong hop oil, tropical fruit, and bread. Taste is of those elements, with rye and very strong and pleasant bitterness. Mouthfeel is high medium and slick, and Indeed Let it Ride IPA finishes puckering and drinkable (for those used to bitter). RJT kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy orange copper body under a one finger foamy beige head that faded to a thin covering. The nose is nicely citrusy, but with a bit more of a caramel malt backbone than I prefer in the style. The favor is plenty hoppy, much like the nose, but the malt sweetness dominates a bit too much towards the finish, leaving a lingering brown sugar and caramel finish. Medium bodied and a little clingy toward the back end with fizzy carbonation. Not a huge fan of this one, which is a shame, because they certainly did a great job with the hop bill AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2015
On tap at Busters on 28th. Coppery orange pour with a lotta lace. Nose has sweet fruits, blueberry, pine and caramel. Taste follows; nicely fruity. Finishes more sweet than bitter. Interesting effort. Tasty. 13.8

This is truly one of my favorites. Poured from a can, creamy head, wonderful nose... Pine, resinous pine. Pith. Silage... I know, farm boy... The artwork on the can draws you in, desire to pour another.
