Poured from a tap as part of a flight, at Grizzly's (Plymouth MN).
Appearance is dark amber, with good white head, some lacing.
Aroma and taste are prevalently from hops, first tropical and then finishing with slightly bitter piney.
Good mouth feel.
Solid, well balanced MN IPA.

If you tried Size 7 at some point and decided it was all a bit hyped and not that amazing, make it out to Steel Toe and try it again. This is beautifully balanced IPAs at its best, just like almost anything Jason Schoneman does.

12 oz can. Pours bright golden, thin off-white head has good retention, spotty lace. Great balance of toasted bread malt and sharp piney hops, with the hops winning out. Crisp dry finish. Good stuff

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. No bottle date evident.

A: Pours reddish amber in color with a one-inch, foamy, cream colored head with minimal retention. Thick, white, billowy lacing throughout.

S: Nose consists of mostly citrus and tropical fruit aromas including grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and passionfruit. Milder floral and piney hop notes as well.

T: Heavier notes of grapefruit and other citrusy fruits accompanied by a milder tropical fruit blend. Finishes with a nice piney and resiny hop bitterness.

F: Light bodied, smooth, and crisp with good carbonation.

O: Overall, a good IPA. Well balanced. Tons of hops for a lighter bodied brew. Would love to try this fresh from the source.

Served in a pint from the tap.

Appearance: Deep amber with heavy gold tint to the body. Extra bubbles creates a subtle head coming off white maybe half a finger's length.

Smell: citrus scent and light Ligt floral.

Taste: floral citrus and super bitter. Malts give you a lot, almost overdosed on them.

Mouth: sticky and extra bubbles.

Overall: Descent brew, would be a mainstay in my fridge if I had easy access to it.
