750ml bottle packaged on 6/21/13, best by 06/2015, and consumed in September of 2013.

A- Hazy golden body. Many streams of small champagne-like carbonation rising to the surface in support of a big, foamy, white head.

S- Lemon zest, hay, some spice and esters. Very subtle. Not getting smacked in the face with anything.

T- The flavors are not to subtle. Spices, bitter lemon rind, some and some numbing retro-olfaction from the ginger all rear their beautiful heads. However, the ginger flavor on the palate is not very distinct, and the sweetness takes a back seat to the dry, bitter, aromatic complexities of the hops, coriander, orange peel, and ginger.

M- Dry, crisp, chalky, fizzy, tingly and solidly medium bodied. The finish is very dry, and hits pretty hard with bitter, tart flavors that evolve long into the aftertaste.

O- Very refreshing and a bit more sour, sharp and bitter than I remember it being the last time I had a growler of it. I think I like Hennepin with just a little extra bottle conditioning more than I like it on tap.
