Sometimes the best things are discovered by accident. I went to Elkader and the OTHER bar was closed. Walked into a different bar that featured mostly Iowa beers.
I ordered a large. It came with a beautiful white head and a cloudy bright yellow body. Lacing was good thorughout the glass.
Nose was really fresh with floral, citrus and hops all the way.
Taste....Well.. In a nutshell, this is why we drink our beer fresh. This has the most beautiful fresh citrus blend of orange and lemon and the lemon rind bit you hard at first. There wasn't much spice but the hop profile was as good as it gets. I am told this is made with Golden Nugget hops. My mouth was loaded with hop flavor for some time after the visit. And it was a good aftertaste. A rare treat.
Mouthfeel was just heavy enough with good carbonation. I can't say enough about this beer. I truly think that for me personally this is the best IPA I have had. Just shows what fresh quality beer can do for you. I could only have one, I will go back. Next stop may be the brewery.
