4.04/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a Pint Glass

Appearance - Clear Golden Color with a 2 finger head with some decent lacing. No carbonation to speak of after the first 30 seconds.

Smell - Piney & Citrus Hops, Grapefruits, Orange Peels, Toffee, and Malts. Very Piney Smelling IPA, how appropriate considering it's from the North Shore. Very rich smell nonetheless

Taste - Piney Hops, Resin, Grapefruit, and Malts. Very Rich Piney and Resiny flavors, perhaps a little too much so.

Mouthfeel - It's light and has no carbonation to speak of. Feels a bit watery but easy to drink nonetheless.

Overall - Despite some flavor imbalances, this is a solid IPA. Worth checking out if you're in the Duluth area!

Poured from growler into pint glass. From 7/6/11 tasting notes.
A: Pours a slightly hazy sunset yellow-orange with 1/2 inch white head. Some lacing.
S: Very aromatic. Loads of sharp pine, pineapple, and citrus hops. Hint of honey and floral note.
T: Very sharp and bitter hops. A bit much for me, but hopheads would rejoice.
M: Very sharp and bitter hop feel. Light-medium body (drinks heavier than ABV). Mildly soft and oily too.
D: Very enjoyable, but the high hop content limits the drinkability for me. A nice summer brew.

A: Crystal clear light orange/dark yellow with a small white head. Good lacing/

S: Sweet oranges, citrus and a bit of pine hops. A bit of tropical fruit too.

T: Fairly bright and citrus hops up front. Some sweet fruity and orange flavors as well. Decent malt backbone comes next, still finishes fairly bitter.

M: A bit on the thinner side. Average, yet softer carbonation. Feels slick.

D: Pretty good drinkability for an IPA. Pretty solid, but not as good as there El Nino.
