Nothing that stands out here for me. Some earthy notes and some caramel malt, a very mild touch of citrus zest on the finish. It's an IPA because the label says so. Give me more hops...give me something that stands out.

Has a good amber color. But thats about all that impressed me. Not very hoppy or aromatic at all which made for a pretty bland IPA

Pours a hazy, copper color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of slight sweet malt, earthy malt, slight tea, mustiness, hint of alcohol, hint of dark citrus, hint of candi sugar, and grass. Fits the style of an English IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight sweet malt, earthy malt, slight tea, mustiness, hint of alcohol, hint of dark citrus, hint of candi sugar, and grass. Overall, I have had numerous Minnesota IPA's lately and this one is unique. The complexity and the musty/grass flavors and aromas were interesting.

Ehhhhhhhh. Poured from can to tulip. Amber color, a few fingers of foam that dissolves to nothing. Have no idea what to say. It's okay. Not terrible, but nothing that stands out. Some earthy notes and some caramel malt, a touch of grapefruit zest on the finish.
