I can't believe I've yet to rate this one. A staple of Minneapolis brews for a while now. Had on tap many times in many places. Pours a wonderful inviting deep orange with a solid white head. Smells wonderful. A bit light on the MF and a wonderful finish. Second favorite only to sticker fight

Bright citrus and pine. Some herbal hops as well. Bready malts and some honey-like sweetness. Biscuits and toast. Pineapple and peaches. Hop forward for sure.

Pours clear copper with a decent off-white head with good lacing and retention.

Bright fruity hops with honey and fresh baked bread. Pine, grapefruit, and orange. Bitterness is quite high but clean and not astringent. Suggestion of sweetness of front but finishes dry and bitter.

Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Mouthfilling and resiny. Clean, dry, and bitter.

More bitter than many other newer IPAs in the market, but still drinkable. Rich layered flavor with a dry finish.

3.84/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look: Pours a nice Orange color with a nice off white head

Smell: This smells great. Maybe a bit of fruit but a lot of earthiness.

Taste: the taste is pretty strong bitterness. Pine, grapefruit, a little malt, and a finish that is a bit dank.

Feel: The beer is average for mouthfeel, and has a dry dry aftertaste.

Overall: a solid IPA with some bitterness, but not my top IPA of the area.

Smell is of caramel malt, heavy pine, and citrus (more lemon than anything else). Taste is dank, with overtones of grapefruit, other citrus, and a slightly bitter finish. A nice representation of a west coast IPA with more malt and hop balance.

Outstanding in every way. Clean, aromatic, balanced yet highlighting hop flavor and bitterness, just a well made and cared for brew.
