Purchased at the Ralph Englestad Arena in Grand Forks.

A bright copper body that is clear and has tons of white head and amazing lacing. Citrus and grapefruit hops on the nose with an underlying malt presence. The body has an enjoyable biscuity quality too it with notes of honey like sweetness. Light citrus hop flavour in the body. The beer though is hurt by an underlying "butter-y" flavour that detracts from the beer. Through the pour, the bitterness builds well. An enjoyable IPA with decent malt background, though a little light on the hop flavours, oh yes, and save the butter for the bread. (601 characters)

64 oz growler split and poured into a Sierra Nevada tulip.
Received 09/30/11, very well sealed, (reviewed 10-03-11)

Thanks to Beerwolf77 for sharing this elusive state tick that turned out to be brewed in OUR home state FOR them. Oy, what an emotional roller coasted. :P

A - Beautiful lightly hazy golden amber in color, a tall pour from the growler produces a pillowy off-white head with thick swiss cheese-looking lacing.

S - Light shreds of oak and pine come flying into this brew with little citrus notes from the hops as well. Heavily biscuity malt provides a big base with just a drop of butter hiding in the background.

T - Lots of biscuity malt and toast with slivers of caramel and a light pungent resin and pine with just a pinch of citrus on the finish.

M - Medium-light bodied with a slightly tacky, faintly bitter finish. Just a touch of dryness and a pinch of minerals on the back end.

O - A little odd in aroma and definitely mellow for an IPA, unless of course it's an English style, Woodchipper is a great inaugural brew. Malty but unique, there's just enough hop to give it some bitterness but for an American-style IPA it could use plenty more. (1,169 characters)

Finally reviewing this one after having this one many times. Reviewing this one from JL beers in fargo,ND. on tap into a tall boy a nice light brown gold color with a thick white head that leaves about a quarter inch of head. No bubbles as you stare throw it. Smell is of floral hops and some citrus. The taste is of great bitter hops and then mellows, but the bitterness lingers and there is some carbination once it enters. It's not really balanced it for a person who likes hops this is just right with the hop linger. Over all a well brewed beer keep it coming Fargo!!!! (574 characters)

Growler courtesy of sweetwillyrolbar. Thanks so much for the elusive state tick Andrea.

A: Pours burnt orange mostly clear. Small amount of off white head. Decent retention with some lace remaining.

S: Mild citrus hop profile. A touch of pine with some bready malt rounding things out.

T: Again citrus hops dominate. A decent amount of resinous sticky hop flavor sticking to the tongue. Soft pale malt balances things nicely.

M: Medium to light body with an average amount of carbonation.

O: A very nice first effort from FBC. I hope they keep it up. ND is a thirsty place. (581 characters)

Reviewed from notes:

Appearance: copper orange with 1 finger offwhite head

Smell: pine, hops, resin, caramel, bready, malts

Taste: was a little mellow for an ipa more of a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: mild carbonation, medium body

Overall: glad to finally get my hands on a beer from north dakota. Decent beer but not over the top.

Cheers,
