A - Copper to red body with little carbonation. The head is white with good lacing but rather quick-lived.

S - A bit of grapefruit with a huge pine scent. This beer smells awesome!

T - The citrus and grapefruit really come through in the flavor while the pine is still evident. This is a good tasting IPA with the only holdback is the finish could offer a bit more.

M - The feel of this beer is watery and has no sticky character at all. Considering the rest of the quilities this beverage has to offer I am surprised at how much it lacks in the feel department.

~ This beer is so worth your time. This is a sessionable IPA that I would definitely recommend to anyone. (681 characters)

I had this golden colored naturally carbonated Ale on tap. It is a hoppy aged ale with a little malty sweetness and biscuit. Very easy to drink and refreshing. (159 characters)

Stopped by Thirsty Pagan on the way back from Duluth to the Twin Cities (avoiding lakes traffic on a Sunday via Wisconsin) for lunch. After the disappointment that was Framdizzle, I thought I'd try a low hanging fruit.

Arrives in a pint glass, a golden/orange-ish murky liquid with a solid two fingers of head.

Some citrus, but tons of piney evergreen wafting out of the glass. A little bready malt and some sweetness.

A nice bit of citrus up front, but is quickly dominated the resinous pin bite. The bitterness is balanced nicely by malt backbone. Not a typical IPA malt profile, but a more yeasty bread presence.

Carbonation is good, the body is not too thick, it finishes a bit weird. Its about to finish dry, but makes a sharp turn to a somewhat odd creamy feeling that lingers with the yeasty bread maltyness mentioned before.

It's not a great IPA, but it is good. I've only been to the Thirsty Pagan a handful of times, but this one has tasted different each time I've had it. I think they have quite a bit of batch variation. (1,040 characters)

Deep amber/bronze coloration, slim, dotted white head.

Aroma: this is the good stuff, right from the get-go. Blasts from pine and citrus. Lovely fragrant floral-ity, intense bitter and bracing, just what I love.

Taste: Just as intense, and then some. Bitterness reigns, with caramel malt and more rising up in prominence after the first hoppy blasts. Great balance, well-porportioned, with hops always in charge and way ahead. Terrific tango of hops and malt, step, step, back, dip, and, hey go and spin this time.

This reminds me more than a little of one of my all-time favorites, Town Hall's Masala Mama IPA. High praise, from me. Tasty as can be, and a fine drinker, too. (678 characters)
