This 7.3% ABV India Pale Ale is from Northgate Brewing of the Northeast area of Minneapolis, Minnesota. They are now canning many of their beers. This uses Jester hops, and thus is a "fool" in a medieval sense play on words.
The beer pours a very deep copper in
color, with a very tall, thick, foamy head of off-white. The aroma is
a blast of citrus, with some tropical, extremely aromatic. The taste
follows the aromas, a blast of citrus, over tea and caramel, with
quenching grapefruit, and a moderately bitter finish. This has a nice
strength and balance between hops and malt. The beer drinks smooth,
with pleasantly stinging carbonation. This is a very enjoyable IPA.
