I picked up a growler of this, my first encounter with Hammerheart. Pretty outstanding pale ale. Bitter hoppy and malt flavor, almost a little smoky. The color is a very cloudy auburn, very inviting. Smooth mouthfeel, almost creamy white head. I'll definitely be trying more from these guys in the future.

I think this is supposed to be an English-style Pale Ale? But there's nothing pale about it, cloudy, impenetrably so, dark, chocolate-y brown, with a slim, milky-white head.
I heard that filtering is something that just isn't done at Hammerheart. Fine by me.
Aroma: sweet, rich malt-y flavors hit the nose first. Even-keeled as can be, with light hops. Delightful stuff.
Tasting it: Now the hops appear, pouncing on the palate. Fresh, lively, green and screamingly bitter attack on the tongue. Stays long. Grassy, and slightly citric. And it butts right up against this intriguing malt body. Getting creamy now, smooth and tasty, with hops keeping pace.
Good ale, this. Much malt, and highly hopped, with plenty of yeast character, at turns, hoppy, sweet, and dry. And utterly unlike any other beer. Fits the ancient, rustic theme this brewery thrives on.

Appearance- I really do not like the murky look for pale ales.
Smell- At first smell i was really not looking forward to the beer reminded me of any other EPA.
Taste- I was so confused and caught off guard by British Invasion. I was greeted with a great hop forward flavor that i wasn't expecting. Right after that you get a great smokey finish.
Mouthfeel- Was right on point.
Overall- This beer instantly jumps to the top of the list of beers i want to regularly drink from Mn. I need to have a few more to figure out what's going on in this beer. It had me confused the whole time and i loved every bit of it!

On my first visit to the brewery, I tried the whole lineup, and tried this one last. From the first sip, I knew this was the one I would be taking home in a growler.
Poured from that growler the next day into a shaker pint, this beer is murky, to say the least, with a billowing head of beige. It's not especially dark -- it's more of an English toffee color, in fact. But it sure is opaque. Lacing is substantial.
The smell is engrossing. It has a much richer maltiness than expected, and possibly more than I have ever encountered in a beer. Tastes that way, too, with a bitterness that emerges very late and lingers long. This is satisfying stuff.
Drinkability is very high with this one. I must resist the urge to drink the whole growler in one sitting.
EDIT: I drank the whole growler in one sitting.
