Undated 12 oz. can purchased at Happy Harry's in Fargo on 8/19/17. I rarely buy IPAs off the shelf in bottle shops because they're rarely fresh, but with this name, how could I not?

L: 2F head with good retention, nice lacing and a cap and ring. Bear is a mostly clear deep amber. Looks nice. Lack of a ridiculous head is a good sign on freshness.

S: A bit malt forward. Cracker and 2-row seem to be prominent here. Some orange and some earth.

T: Some citrus, then a fair amount of malt into a slightly bitter and earthy finish.

F: Medium-ish body, moderate carbonation. Put together decently, though balance could be better.

O: Might be better fresher and off the tap, but not bad.

Had this after an Iron Horse from the same brewery, slightly preferred the taste of the Iron Horse. Woodchipper is more bitter, with less of the subtle hops flavors.

Thanks goes out to sembo for this brew.

12 oz. Can

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malts, pretty nice citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. This is my 50th state brew, finally. Thanks Eric!

Served on draft at the brewery on a beuatiful but hot summer day. Pretty solid beer. Loaded with pine and citrus hops with a welcoming malt backbone. I normally like the hop bitterness but I could feel this one getting away without the malt presence. Aroma was piney, flavor was more citrus with fresh grains. Great on the tongue with a sharp carbonation bite.

Dark gold/pale auburn (9 to 12) with fluffy white head; long lasting cap and heavy lacing; good clarity. Pine and citrus hop nose; pine and grapefruit upfront followed by caramel malt and lite bitter hops. Medium lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice lite bitter citrus linger.
