This local Twin Cities beer from St. Louis Park is really good. It combines the sharp bite of a typical IPA with a surprising tartness in a slightly fruity aftertaste. The 7% alcohol content is strong but nowhere near overwhelming. The colorization is a pretty dark gold. It has a small head with a tiny amount of lattice. Overall? Very good craft beer!

22 oz. bottle acquired through the BPL Fantasy BIF with Zeledonia, who sent an awesome box. Poured into a Samuel Smith imperial pint glass.
A- A normal pour created a 1-finger, off-white head. The body was a hazy, burnt orange. The head settles out to a thin film, leaving nice sticky spots on the glass. A second pour and the stick is even more significant.
S- Quite fresh and hoppy. I get a lot of citrus and hints of pine. Malt backbone brings a lot of balance wit sugary and bready aromas. Everything magnifies with a little warmth.
T- Bold and balanced, as in "there's a ton of everything." Hops are lemony and slightly piney. Malts are cracker-like. There's a hoppy finish that's a touch aspirin-like (not necessarily in a bad way, just a touch biting).
M- Full bodied. Slight hoppy bite. Moderate carbonation tries to keep up.
O- A very solid IPA. While really hoppy, it's pretty well balanced by a solid grain bill. I'd put it up there with my favorites, Two Hearted, Founders, Short's, ect. Obtained through a trade with Zeledonia, I'd buy it if it was available in my market.
