Yet another entrant into the already overpopulated shelves of the Twin Cities, this one from just up I-94. 12 oz. can split with my wife.

Pour looks good against a fading sunset: clear orange until the bottom, when sediment shows to cloud the show a bit. Tons of caramel is the first smell out of the gate, never a good sign with an IPA, but after a vigorous shaking there's some piney bitterness, too. Which wins out? Lessee.

Woodchipper IPA is the kind of beer you just mindlessly sip while doing something else, which is precisely what I've been doing for the last several minutes. It tastes like beer. Beer with caramel malts, beer that has had several hop vines waved in it's general direction to give it a touch of bitterness, beer with a touch of toast, burnt pine.

There's a place in the world for beer that you don't have to think about, but I'm cranky & my glass isn't one of those places. One of the more featureless beers I can remember. Straight mediocre.
