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

4.34/5  rDev +11.6%

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.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a crisp looking golden orange with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. Huge four finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A bright and juicy hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus esters, earthy hops, and backing malt. Upfront citrus hops with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, tangerine, lemon zest, melons, and apricot. Earthy and herbal hop presence with hints of dank pine resin and grass. Fairly floral. Backing of pale malt with hints of grains, biscuit, straw, caramel, and cracker. A very solid IPA aroma.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a nicely zesty and hop forward IPA taste with good notes of citrus, pine, grass, and backing malt. Upfront presence of citrus hops with notes of orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit, mango, lemon zest, melon, tangerine, and apricot. Earthy, floral, and herbal hops as well with notes of grass and weed like pine resin. Backing presence of pale malt with notes of grains, straw, biscuit, caramel, cracker, and yeast. A very good balanced IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, slightly oily, and pretty smooth. Drying finish.

Overall: A very good IPA from this new brewery. Good balance of hop esters.
