A: A cloudy deep gold color pout with a consistend 1/2 finger head. Good lacing and pour with signs of bottle conditioning.

S: A nice funky lemon smell on the front with hops blended well throughout. A little pine but not one of those beers that just smells like a pine forest. Slight grapefruit.

T: Hoppy kick at the front with Grapefruit and lemon taking the lead. Bitterness as expected with IPA and a little malt/funk n it to make it unique.

M: medium-high carbonation with an equal mouthfeel. Sits better than I would've thought from just the appearance and smell.

O: Not in my top IPAs by any means but a solid showing from MN that is worth a try. The cloudy funk mixed with the carbonation and grapefruit spike sets it apart from your traditional offering. Worth a buy if on tap or pick-6

Tried on draft while in St. Paul, Mn. Served in a Summit logo pint glass.
Clear, amber orange color and a solid head. decent retention that leaves a bit of lacing.
Smell is a bit spicy with citrusy hops.
Taste has good hop flavor, citrusy and other tropical fruit. Slightly sweet, not overly bitter. Dry finish, earthy hops at the end.
Medium body and carbonation, easy to drink.
Another good tasting beer, nice to find another good local.
