I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop glass. It pours a beautiful dark golden, much darker than I thought it would be. I'm not a huge hops guy, but I like this one a lot. Perfectly carbonated, a bit on the low side.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 16 oz can on June 18, 2016. Look is bright gold/orange color with a creamy two-finger white head and some lingering lacing. Smell is pine, orange, grass and floral with toast and bread malt aromas. Taste is pine, orange, earth and leafy hops with bread malt flavors. Feel is medium in body with moderate carbonation and a creamy finish.

Solid IPA. It has most of your traditional citrus and floral characteristics. It drinks lighter than the abv suggests.

As a Minnesota native I live about 15 minutes from Lift Bridge and I love what they have done in Stillwater.

Hop Dish is a solid IPA and is very balanced and drinkable. However in the vast world of IPA's this is the Scandanavian version; it doesn't make waves and it doesn't make a stand. Compared to the offering's from Surly and Summit it is a little weak. Like most IPAs it is much better on tap than bottled.

Delicious quality IPA. Bold taste with a clean finish. Great golden color and an intoxicating smell. Sneaky 7.5% alcohol.
