Big thanks to DC55110 for throwing this in as an extra in a recent trade. I've had my eye on this ever since the brewery opened.

A - Crystal clear golden pour that puts up a frothy white head. Color and clarity are just gorgeous.

S - Really striking nose. A great blend of pine, melon, and bready malt character--very clean pine scent alongside of the melon that strikes me as especially appealing. Some alchohol heat in the background, and citrus character asserts itself as the glass warms.

T - Pine and resiny hop flavors dominate, along with some citrus flavors and just an inkling of breadiness from the malt coming through. As the glass warms, I'm getting some more earthy and spicy hop character, but this might simply be a function of palate fatigue. Firm bitterness in the finish and a subtle heat from the alcohol. Perhaps less hop flavor than nose suggested, but the flavors are clean and assertive. Absolutely wonderful.

M - Bone dry, but steady carbonation and sweetness and heat from the alcohol help round it out. Flawless IIPA.

O - Just a fantastic beer, and I'm really happy to have tried it at last. In fact, this is the beer I keep waiting for someone to make readily available on the East Coast--a beautifully clean, bone-dry IIPA. Always stoked when a new brew exceeds local hype (as a Minnesotan, this is said with wink and a nod to many friends back home). Acquire and enjoy without delay. Cheers!
