this beer is very good in my opinion. i had it on tap at a restaurant, Ive also had it from a growler, both have been very enjoyable experiences. first the appearance, it is a almost walnut brown color with a light tan frothy head that dissipates rather quickly. the smell is ofcourse hoppy with hints of smoke and maybe vanilla, the taste is hoppie and very good, almost spicy. the mouthfeel is very good and light. you can definitely tell you are drinking a beer in this case. i would suggest this beer to anyone who likes hoppy beers.

A-amber with a nice thick cream colored head. good lacing

S-smells really good. quality blend of citrus, herbs, and hops. creamy as well.

T-comes in with a great and bitter blend of citrus and hops. its very creamy and smooth! i'm impressed. the after-taste is mostly grainy tasting but stays creamy and smooth. this is actually a slightly complex and extremely well balanced IPA! the bitterness i subtle but great.

M-creamy medium to low carbonation with a creamy finish.

O-i'm really impressed with this beer. not sure if its super fresh or what but it tastes awesome. this is the kind of IPA that will reaffirm anyone's faith in hops. its a nice treat because i've been having a lot of disappointing IPAs lately. search this one out!

Poured from a 64oz growler from The Best Of Brews in Duluth. The color is copper/gold with an off white head. The smell earthy and floral hopps. the taste is very good, hoppy, drinkable and friendly. definantly tasty a good move for the brewery, they have had too many weak beers in the past.

Comes out of the tap an opaque, cloudy honey golden with a fairly thick pale honey head. In fact, it looks a lot like honey, real honey fresh from the hive. Hoppy aroma has a sweet honey-like overtone and a nice evergreen note. Flavor - woo wee, seriously hoppy, very evergreen, with a sweet undertone and just a little bitterness. Full-bodied texture is quite rough and fizzy, leaving behind a hoppy, tingly, slightly honey-sweet finish. Recommended!

Great beer here. It has the older style IPA taste and feel that I don'tget from a lot of newer ipa's. Iewas finding myself thinking about getting a different style beer today and I saw this one. Great happiness and citrus tastes . The piney notesbare great. Good head when poured. This is a beer I would definitely buy over and over.
