Pours a darker caramel gold. Thin head with light lacing.

Initial smell is hops. Aromatics seem to fad quickly. The hops are of the earthy spicy variety.

Taste is caramel malt and more spicy hops. There is some caramel mango on the finish.

Mouthfeel is slick.

Overall this is a decent enough beer. For a fresh hop beer, it doesn't have the bright flavors I would hope for. Hops are a little too spicy for me on the finish.

Sweet talked into buying it but I support my Minnesota brewers.

A - I describe it as orange gold in color. Not much for a head on it or lacing.

S - The hop notes are most prevalent. Also some sweet notes and grass.

T - Slightly sweet and citrusy. Get the hops, seems kind of earthy to me, and I might be the only to say this but corn. Maybe it's a Minnesota thing.

M - Lacks the bite of a typical IPAs, which makes for an easy drinker.

O - A solid meh, although very drinkable. The guy at the store said he liked it more than WET, and I've determined that's crazy talk. It lacks distinctiveness and this would be a good IPA for someone with a palette preference for something mild. My recommendation is try to and find it on tap or get a single bottle.

A - 1 finger of fluffy white head, light brown and amber with great transparency

S - sweet bread, pine with tropical fruits

T - Floral notes with a sharp dry citrus. Noticeably less sweet than the aroma, high on the spicy hops, good lingering bitterness

M - Some oily texture to it, but really light on the body and medium stickiness

O - Overall pretty good, and love the aroma but a bit too much on the dry side of flavor for a wet hopped IPA
