I have tasted probably over 200 IPA's and this one by far has a very clean balance with hops and malt, and does not taste so sweet as some other IPAs.

I wouls have given it a 5 overall as perfect, but the mouthfeel could be a little more carbonated.

Overall, a really go-to every day IPA if you like hoppy beer!

This is my favorite beer right now. It is much better on-tap than in the bottle though. Bottle was okay, but missing something compared to the few I have had on-tap. It is the perfect example of a very drinkable IPA that you can have one or several beers.

I have been searching for this beer ever since I bought the first six pack. I've found it on tap since, but not in bottles, so perhaps the first run was limited release? in any case, if you see it, buy it. You won't be disappointed.

Remembering from the bottle, i believe it used seven different hop varieties (this being Minnesota, the name is a play on "hot dish", the regional speciality that everyone loves to hate). Standout hops flavor, which is surprising given the melange of hop varieties. This one truly dances on your tongue. One of the best new Midwest beers of the year.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Hazy orange, good head.

Smell: HUGE orange and citrus aroma. I don't think I've ever had an on-tap beer with this strong a smell.

Taste: Nicely balanced with sweet underlying a good citrus and orange kick.

Drinkability: Not too strong, went down easy.

Had this on-tap at the Hanger Room. This is the best smelling beer I have ever had. Luckily the taste keeps up, with a good balance between hops and sweetness. Right on the borderline of being a DIPA, but their website calls it an IPA. Really good stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a cloudy orange color with about a half inch of head that disappears slowly. There is a lot of lacing left when the head does disappear. Carbonation bubbles can be seen rising to the top of the beer throughout the entire tasting.

S: Strong citrus and pine aromas balanced slightly with sweet maltiness.

T: Strongly bittered beer. Citrus and piny hops hit the palate first and are the strongest flavors. There is not much balance but the taste is so good.

M: Medium bodied beer with good carbonation.

Overall, this is an awesome beer, it will find a home in my fridge

On tap this week at Hangar Room, Happy Gnome and Mad Capper in Stillwater.

Delicate stick sweet head compliments a beautiful orange haze. You dont need to take a picture, you will remember this IPA.

HUGE CITRUS AND HOPS..bam pow zoinks..my taste buds are in heaven. Orange citrus bittered hops dominates and a balanced sweet ending.

Matt, the new head brewer at Lift Bridge, has hit the bullseye. I can't wait for bottle distrobution.
