Bottle. Pours amber-golden with thick white head. Aroma has some good tropical fruit, resin and overall a pronounced citrus herbal feel. Flavor upfront has slight sweetness with hop resin tingle followed by dry and long-lingering and lightly bitter hop resin aftertaste. A good IPA for the older generation of microbrewery with a nice delicacy as well as a bit of experimentation- a little smoother than Torpedo and not as high of an abv and a creative use of exotic hops. I will say, however, that Green Flash was doing this better 10 years ago and leave it at that. If there is any justice, it should be added to the list of potent potables in twin cities alongside Furious, Bermuda Triangle and Westside.
Taste: smooth semi sweet malts balance with gentle hops. mild nose. Amber, mostly clear, with a big foamy head and ringed lattice of lace. Medium/lite body. Drinkable at 80 IBUs thedm (6143) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2017
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated body light yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mild citrus crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium citrus aftertaste. The tasty flavor contained notes of citrus and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. olenickj (114) - Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Draft. App: Cloudy gold, medium white head. Aroma: Heavy citrus with a sweet undertone. Taste: Orange and grapefruit, pleasant but not deep. Palate: Full and long lasting, a little gritty. Over: Enjoyable and refreshing if not spectacular. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Dark golden to light amber in color. Taller mostly lasting, off-white head. Decent lace. Hoppy aromas, with ruby red grapefruit, tropical fruit (including mango and papaya). Pale malt and marzipan also join in the scents. Sweeter start, with a mild acidity. Quite fruity. Bits of citric zest wander about. 5/12

tedovertu (297) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Really nice cloudy amber appearance with good lacing. Kind of flat / oily texture with mild soap and a hint of grapefruit and pine. Not great but definitely drinkable.
asheft (3062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
On tap at Outback Steakhouse, Bloomington, MN. Fresh pineapple juice aroma with a little base malt. Crystal clear copper under a lacy, white sheet. Mostly tropical hops flavour with assertive, clean bitterness and a medium base malt and light caramel backbone. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2016
12 oz bottle. BB 11/27/16. (Little Brown Jug) Biwabik, MN.
Cloudy orangey golden color with a small off-white head.
Orange, fruity hops, mild bitterness, mild yoghurt notes and sweetish malt in the aroma. Not bad.
The flavor is fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness, dryness and malt. Pretty decent IPA. A bit thinnish though.

12oz bottle, can’t believe I haven’t rated this before . Dark gold with white head. Heavy grapefruit nose with hops. Bitter, cloying, strong grapefruit. Finish is the same, lasts long especially when cold. This beer gets more love than it deserves but it’s ok. Andrew196 (1853) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Clear gold, lovely white head, super lacey. Aroma of pine and celery. Crisp on the tongue, pretty good stuff, more an English style IPA, a nice bready, earthy flavor to balance the hops out.
