On tap at Stout's Pub in Falcon Heights , MN. Served in a 10 oz. glass.

A: Rich amber with dark ruby tones. Lacing is beautiful, thick, and lingers. Head is dense, white, and rich.

S: Some graniness (toasty) sits behind a big veil of floral hoppiness.

T: Yes! This is what an IPA (fresh hop!) should be. A lot of the citrus grapefruit but also a dank floral too. Piney tones work to compliment and weaves through the somewhat caramel/rye flavors of the malt/grist.

M: Somewhat rich and viscous. Hops have astringent drying quality that is a perfect compliment to the texture. Good.

D: I really liked this one. FInd it, seek it out. It is good.
