mmm... I love me some pale ales!
on tap at Minneapolis Town Hall -- reviewed from short notes

Golden body, white head, nice lace. Good retention.
Smells nicely hopped, with grassy, floral, and citrus notes.
The taste is GREAT-- just like the nose indicates, but with a nice bitter punch at the back end.
The body is good-- medium, little oily, little prickly, good carbonation.
Overall-- I would certainly buy this if it were available. It is VERY nice, and easily one of the best beers I've had from the brewery!

A: appears an amber golden color with decent head and good retention for a pale ale.

S: a lot of citrus going on here, and a bit of that body odor smell that comes with it. Simcoe? Yes, there it is.

T: tastes amazing! This is likely the freshest pale ale I've ever had, but it tastes like someone squeezed a grapefruit in my glass and mixed it with beer. Has an incredible bitter and malty aftertaste, too.

M: simple pale ale style with a crisp feeling and medium-light body. Nice carbonation, but not overpowering.

O: drinkable and delicious...might get a growler of this to take home.

Pint glass at the bar

A: light copper color with a half finger off-white head, crystal clear.
S: Hops, massive amount of citrus and pine hops, very American.
T: Very sharp bitterness, I don't usually taste "cat piss" in beers, but I think that some people would find that "flavor" here. A different malt profile from Masala Mama, more rounded and sweet, complements the hops very well.
M: Low level of carbonation that seems to open up the beer.
O: An excellent APA, it seems that the brewers threw financial caution to the wind with regards to hop usage, appears to be an amazing amount of late additions were used here. Great beer and <5% (according to the menu). Very recommended.

A: Copper, with great lacing and a two-finger dying head.

S: Smells of grapefruit, candied citrus, pine and some tropical fruits.

T: Hop-forward with a great malt backbone. As I like very hoppy beers, this is a little light for me, but great for the style (as always, I reviewed to the style). An excellent intro to hop-centric beers. A little soapy and metallic in the linger (not bad though).

M: Light feel, with medium carbonation.

On tap at the brewery, beer is amber to red and clear with a one finger off white head of small and medium bubbles, lots of lacing, nice, retention, some carbonation.

Aroma is sweet and earthy hoppy with some mild pine.

Beer is medium to light in body with a moderate bitterness on the finish and some nice hop pininess in the midpalate, a decent light malt pale ale. I'd have it again.
