Poured into a Pint Glass

Appearance - Slightly hazy but most clear Amber color and very bubbly. Head is around 2 fingers in width with some good sticky lacing along the sides.

Smell - Citrus Hops, Grapefruit, Pineapple, Malts, and Yeast. Reminds me just a bit of Griffin's Bow Barleywine, which I should note was pretty good.

Taste - Piney Hops, Grapefruit, Pineapple, and Yeasts. Fairly earthy taste with an almost oak-like flavor. Aftertaste is a resin flavor, which stays on the back of your tongue for a couple of minutes.

Mouthfeel - Light Bodied and mildly carbonated, pretty easy to drink and quite refreshing.

Overall - Living in Chicago for the summer made me miss Minnesota. Since I moved back I have been getting back into the groove of this and getting reacquainted with the beer scene here; Beers like this make me happy to be back in the Twin Cities. It's got a great flavor, easy drinkability and the price I paid for it is very reasonable!
