Smooth tasting beer, not too bitter. Not particularly distinct flavor. The best part of this beer is the look. It's a really beautiful reddish gold with a solid head and good lace. The worst part is the feel, completely loose and watery. Unimpressed.

Poured a clear, golden-orange color with a one-finger, white head of foam. It smelled of pine, citrus and grapefruit. Nice toasted caramel maltiness with a citrus kick and bitter bite.

12 FL OZ bottle
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours a light shade of amber with golden highlights. It is topped with three inches of beige head that leaves some rocky head.

It has a crisp, citrus aroma with grapefruit being the focus.

It starts out with some citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Those flavors are quickly injected with grapefruit. Grapefruit bitterness carries through the finish and into the aftertaste.

Medium mouthfeel

This is one of the better beers that I have had from Iowa. I just spent four days there and tried a shit ton of them. It is quite enjoyable.

A: This poured a clear gold with almost no head.
S: It smelled like peaches and grapefruit with some honey malt.
T: It tasted like grapefruit and apricots, with some honeydew melon and sweet honey malt. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thick and chewy with lots of carbonation. Huge body.
D: This was a solid IPA with bold scent and taste. The body was maybe the thickest I've ever had - crazy. The finish was pretty smooth, so it was easy enough to drink. Not quite top tier, but very enjoyable to try once.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there is no "best by" date that I can find.

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, dark gold color with less than one-finger off-white head that quickly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, there is significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread, pine resin and some grapefruit citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet bread and grapefruit citrus then an assertively pleasant, piney hop blast that really lingered., the 7.5% ABV is perceptible.

PALATE: somewhat creamy with medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very good beer and somewhat more complex that most in this style, really seems to blend the pine notes of a traditional IPA with the citrus notes of west coast IPA, it's the best of both worlds and it worked for me, a little too boozy for my liking held back the score, I would have this again and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

Pours a clear orange golden color with white head. Citrus and pine are the most present on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with spicey citrusy pine.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear, copper color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hint of pine, sweet malt, alcohol, and slight floral hops. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, and slight pine. Overall, good appearance, strong body and aroma, but an average IPA.

Very much a pine-centric IPA. The majority of the 95 IBU level comes from the pine, with the more basic hop flavors kept toned down. It's pretty good, and a decent example of its specific style.

Generous head and lacy. Americo’s stubby. Easy drinking. Above average bitterness without harshness. A well crafted IPA if not my favourite of the week.

New favorite from Peace Tree! Idk if an ipa could be more balanced. A six pack is reasonably priced. The only thing I could say that isn't exceptional is the head. I pored hard and didn't get quite a half and inch.

On draft at Devil’s Advocate, Minneapolis.

Slight trailers over pale gold.
Passionfruit and candied orange plus bits of flowers and herbs on the nose.
Peach up front, then shifting flower, resin, nectar, and oily tangerine hops.
Squeezy lemon rind finish and fizzy sorbet linger.
Lt-med, good oil, clean

Amarillo, Citra, and Simcoe

A bit pale, but hops on a couple different levels; sticky and citrusy both. 95 IBUs is graciously hidden. Among the better IPAs for the area (not tops just because MN makes so many great beers) and curious about the brewery now.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Gold, good head.

Smell: Tangerines, oranges, nice.

Taste: Moderately bitter, oranges and tangerines--sweet citrus flavor. Possibly a little oxidized cardboard note. Balanced flavor.

Overall: Not 100% sure if this six pack is a little old as I'm getting some oxidized notes, but still tastes quite good. Nice tangerine flavor that I don't get in many beers. If I can be assured the beer is fresh, I'll have to try again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Aroma: Spiced orange peel, orange gum drops, grapefruit, and dank. Malt is in the back as some sweetness. No DMS, no diacetyl.

Appearance: Gold with amber highlights. White rocky head that lingers. Brilliantly clear.

Taste: High citrus bitterness, not as inviting as the aroma. Hop forward and not balanced with the malt. Lingering bitterness in the finish. No DMS, no diacetyl.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, medium carbonation that could be a bit higher. Slight bitter astringency in the finish that isn't pleasant.

Overall: my favorite Peace Tree beer. The bitterness is a bit unbalanced with the malt profile however the aroma is really nice. Solid Midwest IPA.
