4.43/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a nice copper color with some ruby red highlights. Thick, clumpy, off-white head. Leaves nice lacing on the glass.

Very citrusy, fruity hop aromas here. Mango, pear, tangerine, melon.

Taste is dominated by citrusy/piney/grassy hop profile. Very subtle malt backbone supports this big IPA.

Medium bodied. Very easy drinking.

Overall a very good beer. One of the best IPA's I've had.

Serving type: growler

4.1/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

On draft at the brewery, Minneapolis.

Dark amber with crusty white froth that trails.
Deep twinkly candied orange with hints of resin and powder.
Dried apricot, and clean, even C-hop citrus, pine, and resin.
Pineapple finish and humming orange oil linger.
Light side of medium, crisp, slightly clingy.

Not much at first taste, but has not only bright but effervescent citrus and solid IBUs to the hops. Still, it’s a bit of a throwback. Very good, but not Indeed Let it Ride.

Serving type: on-tap

3.39/5  rDev -22.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On draft at the brewery. Appearance is golden in color, a tad darker than a typical IPA. I don't get much aroma, maybe some pine. Taste is bitter - grapefruit, and spruce. Carbonation is medium-high and it goes down easy despite the bracing bitterness. Overall an enjoyable beer but nothing special.
