Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, pale, caramel coloring with some sediment settling throughout, and a low profile, clingy, white head. Aromas of rich caramel, tart grapefruit, lemon zest, and some subtle piney notes. Flavors are tart sweet and bitter forward, with a heavy dose of grapefruit and lemon blending with dry grass, pine tassels, and basil, all on a toffee sweet backbone. The beer has a smooth, mid-bodied feel, with a tangy sweet and citrus aftertaste. The finish is smooth, slick, and has a citrus tart and sweet linger.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours super hazy orange-ish amber with a frothy light tan head that hangs around for a while and slightly settles to a fairly thick dense layer that leaves some globs on the side of the glass.

S: Floral, citrus, faint spice, earthy, slightly toasty, and a little almost honey like sweetness.

T: Citrus, lemon lime and grapefruit zest, floral and fruity notes, pine, earthy, faint herbal tones, with a little biscuity malt and just a touch of caramel malt sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: I gotta thank my buddy for truckin this one all the way out to California for me to try. Pretty darn solid brew.

Pours a chill-hazed amber with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Good lacing & head retention, stays fairly hazy

S: Leafy hops & breadyness

T: Follows the nose, dryness as well up front. Fairly astringent as this warms, a little bit of woody & herbal hops, some pear notes, more dryness. Finishes with little bit of pear, woody hops, breadyness & dryness

MF: Medium body, subtle carbonation, okay balance

Drinks alright, just not in my wheelhouse, my least favorite in this mixed pack

10 oz on tap at Pizza Luce in St. Paul

Look: hazy apricot with a resilient white film and some lacing
Smell: citrusy, piney
Taste: Great malt-hop balance. Malt is lightly sweet, just enough to counter the hops, which are citrusy and a little piney, very fresh tasting. a moderate bitter finish medium body, standard carbonation

Overall: A very nicely balanced IPA with great citrusy hop flavor.

Edacsac by Dark Horse.

Final of the series. One was a good IPA, other was quite average. Let's see how this one turns out.

Look - Pours a very murky, nearly impenetrable amber burnt orangish color with a finger and a half of off-white head that retains itself fairly well. Cannot comment on carbonation levels yet since it is impossible to see. After about 6 minutes of sitting the head has turned into sparse cloud like formations and only left very trace amounts of lacing.


Smell - This brew has a large malty presence detectable straight away with some bright though subdued floral notes. I'm also getting a hint of fresh baked pretzels.

Taste - The floral notes become more prevelant and are the driving force behind the flavor. Upon continuing the beer you are met by a gatorade-like juiciness upon your tongue. Becomes far brighter and juicier as the beer warms and the malts virtually disappear, though the exact flavor here cannot easily be figured out. This part is quite unique and not like anything else I've had over nearly 400 reviews.

Feel - Medium bodied without any noticeable creamy factors and heavy, stinging carbonation all throughout the mouth.

Overall - This was certainly different. I could argue the best in the pack taste-wise. Would be quite easy to drink a lot of these ones and if I were to ever head out to a bonfire and saw this in a six pack I would probably pick it up just for that assuming it is reasonably priced. No Beerligious experience, but a good, easy drinking IPA.

Pours a very hazy pale orange with a small white head. Not a huge smell, but a huge taste. Bitter hops with a ton of malt that really comes on in the finish. Heavy on the citrus hop with a nice funk. I really like this on along with crooked tree and smells like a safety meeting. Hop resonates long after sip.
