Major thanks to jeffboo for this growler of glory...
Pours out deep amber and sits amber brown in the glass with a large off-white head, puttering down slowly to a nice skim and lacings to boot.
Smells potently fruity, dripping of orange, grapefruit lemon and a dusting of pine. Nice malty core complete with caramel, toasted biscuit and just a slight hint of nuts.
Tastes mildly sweet up front caramel and walnuts off the bat. Hops stike a resounding chord of grapefruit rinds, sweet orange, stong pine resin and lemon zest. Melts in the mouth, coating your throat with hop oils, finishing well-bittered, pine needles stuck to the tongue.
Smooth, creamy and pretty much every other adjective to describe "it makes me feel good all over." Carbonation is medium-light and well-balanced. Medium-full in body, can't ask for much more here.
Fantastic IPA, stands up to the hype 100%. Will look for this in the future, dreaming all the while. Again, a big IOU to jeffboo.

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.

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.
