On tap at Grizzly's Plymouth.
Hazy orange colored body. One finger slightly off white head settles to thin ring. Scattered spots of lacing.
Strong aroma of citrus and tropical fruit.
Taste is sweet and juicy, tropical and citrus fruit, with some pith bitterness at the end.
Medium and slurpy mouth feel.
A top tier Minnesota brewed hazy, juicy IPA, with softer mouth feel. Has some lingering bitterness, too.

I wish I could post pictures with my reviews. This beer almost glows a stunning orange and the beer tastes as good as it looks. Hazy NE style IPA, so juicy and citrus/fruity. I've had few beers I crave more than this... now if only it could be readily had in the twin cities!!

My favorite Disgruntled beer. I also love Reaper. Juicy and the perfect hop presence. Every batch is a little different but it is consistently my favorite MN IPA.

I've had this before but never rated it. Always enjoyed it. Looks the part with the cloudy orange juice appearance. Nice fruity aroma which leans toward the tropical fruits but definitely includes citrus fruit notes. Really a nice aroma to this.

The flavor brings in those same characteristics of Pineapple, passion fruit, oranges and tangerines and finishes with some unsweetened grapefruit.....has some deeper resin like notes as well. Not quite pine but more tobacco or bong resin....very light though..

A nice little dry bitterness to this as well on the finish. Body is medium..creamy.

Great beer.

This beer pours a completely opaqu dirty yellow with a fairly head. is hugely tropical, with passionfruit, pineapple, grapfruit, tangerine, mango, and guava. The flavor is joyously juicy, with loads of passionfruit, guava, pineappl, and mango, as well as grapefruit peel, kiwi, watermelon, honeydew, and a decent bitter pithy finish. The mouthfeel is quite soft and pillowy, with fulsome carbonation. Overall this beer has a wonderfully descriptive name - it is stupid how good this is. Great texture, huge aroma, gorgeous flavor, and just enough bitterness for balance.

4.47/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: A dull, cloudy orange appearance.
Smell: All orange and tropical.
Taste: Juicy and dominated by tropical fruit flavors with some hop flavor and slight bitterness.
Feel: Fuller body and the carb is light.
Overall: In my opinion this sets the present standard for NE IPAs in Minnesota. It checks all the boxes and is such a pleasant beer for people like me who appreciate this style of IPA.

Excellent NE-IPA from up north Minnesota, stoked to finally try this.

Pours a thick hazy orange, murky and cloudy, with an inch or so white head that dissipates quickly, leaves minimal lacing.
Nose is a hop bomb, fruity tropical hops. Orange and citrus fruits.
Taste follows the nose, with a bit of tangerine, melon, just fruit city. Very minimal bitterness, with an ever-so-slight resinous finish.
Mouthfeel makes this one a clear winner. Soft and pillow-y, minimal carbonation, definitely "juicy." This is the part I feel missing from most other MN representations of the style.

Amazing beer, cherishing these last sips!

Had this on tap in a pint glass at the Taproom.

A: Pours a super hazy, pale orange in color with a 1/2 inch, frothy white head with short retention. Thick, white billowy lacing throughout.

S: Big aromas of citrus and tropical fruits with mild hints of piney hops. Nose is mostly orange, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, melons, and guava. Smells like a tropical fruit smoothie.

T: Huge juice bomb! Starts off with heavy notes of grapefruit, orange rind, and tangerine followed by big notes of melons, pineapple, mango, papaya, and guava. Ends with a slight lingering piney, resinous hop bitterness. Fruitiness is perfectly balanced with the hop bitterness at an elite level.

F: Medium bodied, super juicy, smooth, and very crisp with good carbonation. Slightly dry.

O: Overall, an awesome NE style IPA. This beer definitely puts MN on the map for the style. I've had a number of true NE IPA's and I'd put this one right up there with the best of them. Super juicy, drinkable, and very well balanced. ABV is almost completely absent and makes this beer extremely crushable. Disgruntled has only been around for about a year now and if they're already putting out amazing brews like this one I can't wait to see what the future has in store for them. Will definitely be trying other Disgruntled brews when they're available and making another trip up to the brewery!

Pours a thick cloudy golden color with a 1 finger white head and chunks of lacing...this is perfection!, Smell is citrus and tropics no mistake here all hops . Taste is a citrus overload of tropical hops , papaya,mango, fresh oranges, and tangerines its explosive yet very delicate. mouth feel is soft and pillowy so little bitterness with so much hop explosion. This is a perfect IPA and a perfect IPA for the very popular NE IPA class, make no mistake this is one to seek out,SUPERB!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap at the taproom.
Look is dense yellow haze with a orange juicy aroma.
Taste follows with orange, subtle pineapple and some hops. Quite delicious and comparable to the hyped NE juicy IPAs.
Mouth is obviously heavier and less carbed than typical IPAs - we'll done.
Overall a top notch juiced IPA.

I try not to give a 5/5 rating in order to respect the validity of that score... But with "stupid good" it was a must. This hazy IPA is one of a kind with a sunset orange color, pleasant citrus aroma, and a creamy mouth feel that is unmistakable. The fresh juicy citrus flavors are also out of this world good. With IPA's being my favorite style of beer, I have come across no match to stupid good!
