I love watching smaller breweries like that. Epic (SLC) is great like that, they post the ingredients and numbers for each batch on their site, it's cool to see how they change/develop with each brew.

This may very well be the best (bottled) IPA brewed in the Twin Cities. That head sticks, thick cap and curtains of lace. The aroma is citrus up front, hints of pine and caramel barely make themselves noticed. Third whiff brings a distinct pinecone/pine resin smell to the back of the nose, maybe a hint of lemon too. The flavor is almost all American hops, citrus, pine, a touch of fruity ale yeast. Just enough malt character to stand up to the hops. Carbonation is minimal, almost no bubbles and very smooth. Finish is bitter and dry.... amazing IPA.

Hoppy Feet 1.5. Very disappointed. Love Hoppy Feet, but the big bro is all alcohol. Sad day. Next time I'll just stick to the standard! Lubrication was tasty too.

Haandbryggeriet has done a good job of keeping me interested, with their incorporations of traditional beer and alcohol culture, into modern, and foreign beer styles. I have not had a bad beer from them.

New Belgium Abbey last night. Good stuff. Not as good as the Dubbels from Belgium, but pretty darn good - particularly pleasing was the quality for a $7.15 6-pack.
