4.03/5  rDev -0.5%

Served on tap at Sea Salt.

Pours easily with a meager, thin white head. Smells delightful, like fruit flavored bubble gum with a tinge of hops. Fruit dominates the palate as well, along with a fruity/peppery bite and plenty of balanced hop afteraroma. The mouthfeel is nothing special, and dry like most IPAs.

Overall, this is a very tasty and drinkable little brew, and I doubt this will be the only time I order one.

3.4/5  rDev -16%

On-tap at the brewery - served in a Harriet tulip.

Cloudy dark orange liquid with a whispy ivory collar and smattering of surface slick. Average retention, sticky art-nouveau-like lacing.

Fresh dough-y malt, chilled wort, grassy hops, and esters in the nose.

The flavor follows the nose closely, the profile mirroring the aromas emanating from the brewery itself. Husky, grainy palate entry with citrus and pine sap from hops. Mild bitterness and light yeasty phenols throughout.

Medium-bodied, creamy and soft with average carbonation.

Tastes quite "green" as if it was not properly conditioned. Bitterness, hop presence, and yeast flavors are quite low.

Had a pint at Pat's Tap. Wow, this is everything you could ask of a Belgian IPA. They've brought about as much flavor and character as you can possibly cram into an IPA. It reminds me of Furious in that sense. Of course, it's also a bit like Houblon Chouffe, for the big mix of biting herbal spice mixing with the grapefruit citrus and pine. The ABV isn't over the top, but this is a big, flavorful beer to be enjoyed.

Clear bronze color with a half inch of head that quickly settled to a thin film. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left on the glass.

Belgian aroma. Spice notes from the yeast is complimented by the citrus hops.

Spice upfront in the flavor that is quickly followed by citrus hops. Bitterness is high. Pale malt gives a hint of sweetness.

Nicely carbonated even though I thought it looked flat during the pour. Body lies between light and moderate.

A solid beer from a up and coming brewery. Look forward to more of their beer.

Served in a 10oz glass

A- Gold with a slight orange hue. Little head and no retention to be found.

S- Some tropical notes including peach and mango, followed by some Belgian funk and bready malt.

T- While the aroma was a little faint, the flavors were much more pronounced with the taste. Lot's of tropical notes with mango, peach and pineapple, followed by Belgian funk, banana and clove. There is a pleasant tartness in the background with hints of green apple.

M- Medium carbonation as well as a very crisp body. Nice amount of drinkability.

O- A very complex and unique IPA, especially in taste. I haven't really had many Belgian IPA's but have found another style that I really dig. Happy as well to stumble upon a new local Mpls brewery. Well done Harriet.
