A-A nice halo gold appearance. Will keep you intrigued for further sense-feel.
S-Faint pine. Pure citrus. Limey. Interesting seeing (smelling) as most IPA's are grapefruity.
T-OOO WEEE! Sparkling! Bubbles on the tongue. A surprise gem of mouth! The fruit flavor outweighs the hop/pine. Fresh cut lemongrass washes over the palate. Withering pine is the finish. With hops lingering. This isn't bad! All IPA's should have different flavor and vibes.
M-Light/Medium body feel. Nothing surprising or disappointing.
O-BUY/TASTE!. Friend lent me a can as a favor/fellow beer drinker love. A unique take on the IPA. Worth a sixer buy. Will make you write a review about said drink.

A-Oak colored...chill hazed...ligth head..

S-Really a highpoint of the beer. Hugely floral with some pine notes as well....a nice dose of sweeter citrus on the nose as well (think mandarin orange)

T-Nice hop forward, hop flavorful IPA. Some drying bitterness on the finish but this IPA features a lot of hop flavor, rather than pure hop bitterness. Pine, ganja,and tobacco notes combine with citrus flavors of oranges, and tangerines.

M-Medium bodied...carbonation is perfect....the dry piney finish leaves you wanting another sip.

O-This is top notch. Top tier IPA....I hope their distribution of this grows as expected as this is really a great IPA and I don't get to Duluth but a few times a year. Best IPA in Minnesota in my opinion edging out Hopdish

Poured from a growler filled last night into a 16oz Bent Paddle Tumbler glass

A- pours a very clear crisp clear golden. Head is about a finger and a half with tight white bubbles. Head retention follows the beer down the glass with good lacing.

S- well balanced earth hops -pine/grass and Citrus- tangerine/grapefruit notes race across your nose with a touch of pale malt.

T- the hops follow through this beer in a well balanced way. Citrus- lemon/grapefruit upfront, a touch of pale malt, and a coating of well rounded bitterness that coats the mouth.

M- Body is on the lighter side of medium but has roundness to it that makes it very drinkable. Carbonation is right on, assertive but not overpowering.

O- I'm gladly impressed by this beer. The thing I was most impressed by was the overall balance. The hops flow throughout, from the nose to the finish. I can't wait to start seeing more from this upcoming brewery.
