GTMW. Deep orange pour. Nice bouquet of floral citrus and pine hops. Flavor is light citrus and pine bitterness with a mild caramel malt backbone. Clean, crisp, and slightly dry. This is a pounder of a beer that you could drink all summer long. Nicely done.

Had this at the All Pints North festival in Duluth, MN. Has some nice citrus scents and had a nice subtle bitterness. Great IPA for sitting outside during the day.

At Surlyfest 5. Excellent IPA. Nice citrus and floral hops with a good amount of bitterness at the end. Similar to Furious but with a noticeably different hop profile. I wish this was available in cans as it would be a better summer IPA than furious is. Very nice.

Tap.. Medium golden pour, average medium carbonation and a nice bitter hop aroma. Flavor is dry bitter hops, way less malt than Furious, pine, orange bitters and very dry on the finish. Really enjoyable, if given the choice between Furious and this, I would probably order this 9 time out of 10.

on tap at Muddy Waters 2Oct2012, the lacing on this beer is crazy, it clings like no bodies business, I get the marmalade reference from the description a sweet orange tropical fruit hop profile makes this quite nice, but the carbonation a bit too bubbly for an IPA for me, still very very good.

At target field, amber with 1 finger white head. Aroma is floral herbal with a hint of tropical fruit. Taste is sweet and tropical. Palate is nice.

On tap at Twins games. Aside from the long lines you have to wait in to get this IPA - it’s a perfect cousin to Furious for the outdoor baseball fan.

Tap at the stadium. My girlfriend is giving me dirty looks. It’s good, but not as good as furious.

wilnatp (723) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2012
TAP: Gold/amber pour with tan/off-white head. Aroam is hops, floral and orange citrus. Taste is caramel malt balancing the citrus hops.

Nice citrus hops aroma, taste follows suit. Like a weaker furious. Its solid but not something I would seek out
