Had at Muddy Waters in Minneapolis

It was a tasty IPA THAT was middle of the road

It had a nice appearance with great lacing and a smell of citrus and pine
Bitterness was what we expect for single IPAs and finished with a dry Hoppy mouth feel It is good. It is not the best but a decent IPA

I bought a couple of 22 oz. bottles of this in Minneapolis on a Monday after it was bottled the previous. Super fresh.

Looked like a typical NW IPA --- light amber with a off-white head that lingered down the glass.

Smelled like freshly-squeezed grapefruit and orange. I little bit of sweetness in there but barely. Fantastic. One of the most aromatic IPAs I've had in a long while. I imagine this is dry-hopped and it might fall off quickly, but as fresh as I had it, it knocked my socks off.

Tasted like a citrus bomb with a bitter kick. Grapefruit and orange just like the nose and super flavorful. I didn't pick up any pine that other reviewers found. But as this beer warmed up, it definitely got sweeter. I mean like sticky sweat. Not not from the malt, though. I wonder if the brewers used a ton of sugar to dry this out and that was what I was picking up. Not so noticeable when refrigerator cold, but definitely as it warmed.

Medium mouthfeel, a little on the syrupy side. But only a little.

This is a damn good IPA that I will buy again and again on my frequent travels to Minneapolis. Would like to try on tap.
