Poured from 16oz can into glass. Marked with 09/08/17 canning date.
Classic dark amber color body, wide head settles to ring, and considerable lacing.
Smell is dank and piney, taste is piney and pith, medium bitterness at the end, some slightly sweet lingering at the end.
Medium, solid mouth feel.
I have not tried this for several years, but realized this is a very well done IPA that does not depend upon either coast for style. A standard bearer for Minnesota IPA beers. Solid beer that does not participate in the latest trend of juicy and hazy IPAs but still delivers a great beer experience.

1 PINT can
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours a deep, ruddy, amber with copper highlights and a slight haze. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves some lacing rings as I consume.

The aroma is a balance of malt and hops. A toasted malt backbone holds up to citrus from the hops.

It starts out nice with earthy, toasted flavors from the malt. Then the citrus enters. Finally, I get pine and bitterness in the finish.

Medium mouthfeel

I recall liking it better on tap. This can was bitter and malty. It is a solid beer though.

16 oz can with a 6/30/17 canning date. Poured into Teku glass.

L: Partly hazy deep amber. Big head on aggressive pour, good retention, leaves lots of foamy lacing and a cap and ring.

S: Orange and orange rind. Piney dankness. Prominent caramel malt. Suggest we call this style Midwest IPA. It's different than NE or West Coast, but quite good.

T: Caramel malt and citrus vie with each other up front, hops last longer into midpalate and to piney finish. Very slightly bitter. Pretty good and not a lot different from what I had on tap despite 10 weeks of age in can.

F: On the light side of medium-bodied. Moderately carbonated. Construction and balance are quite good. Would not call crisp and refreshing but still easy drinking.

O: A very solid IPA.
