Hoppy with a nice finish. Made my girlfriend gag which is a good sign!

Picked this up a few weeks back at the Bottle King in Livingston. This was going for around $5 a six-pack (on sale) and since I never had it before, I picked up one to put into my rotation. I always say that IPA's are a dime a dozen but this one was better than I expected it to be and was a good example of what one should be, when it came to emulating West Coast styles without actually being from there. There was a nice body, good balance, and enough hops here to satisfy me and I'd expect nearly anyone who gave this a go to feel the same way!

The pour to this was great, as this beer had a dark and glowing amber hue that was a bit cloudy, with a thick head the quickly settled and nice,soapy rings that settled in nicely on the side of my pint glass. Not much of an aroma here but there was some earthy hops that could be discerned. More of that was in the taste, along with some pine, grapefruit and a slight metallic astringency. The malts were somewhat sweet with a hint of caramel stickiness while the carbonation was spot-on and scrubbed away everything nearly perfectly. The body was nearly perfect with an oily consistency to it and a floral undertone that served as a reminder of the aspiration of this beer.

The alcohol was a bit high but you wouldn't have known it by the taste, as it was only when I finally polished this off that I could feel a slight buzz and warming sensation. No, this didn't measure up to the heavyweights of this style but that's not saying much given how many outstanding IPA's are out there. People in Minnesota should be thrilled that they have this available and that the beer scene in the Midwest is catching up to that of the West Coast, Rockies, and Northeast - this was a solid brew that I felt like I stole from the store.

Teetering between a rich golden color and crimson. Smells like hops and grains. Might have had a bad pour at my bar but it had a soapy taste to it. Disappointing
