This is my favorite IPA hands down. Which is a shame because it's not a Michigan brew, and I'm really incredibly proud of all the great beers we produce here in the mitten state. It is my mission to find a Michigan beer that I like more than this. ☺ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 08.18.14. A: Orange, grapefruit, and lemon. A: 1 1/2 finger head. See through amber body. T: Orange, grapefruit, and lemon dominate. Slight spice and hop resin are subtle. P: Creamy. Great carbonation. O: This was a very citrusy IIPA with a malt backbone. It reminded me of Fresh Squeezed.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Bottle at home. 22 oz. Starts off strong With a sharp initial bite of hoppiness. Bite does not linger in your mouth. Like an absentee father: here today, gone tomorrow. Notes of citrus, pine needles, and dandelion. Very drinkable. Not boozy like most double IPAs. Good IPA to start your night off with, if that's your thing.

kaser (3983) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Dark orange and clear pour with hardly any head, from 22oz bottle at home. From Blackwells. Almost red. Aroma is juicy, tart, apple, and sweet. Taste is bitter and juicy, fruity, hoppy, and has a slight vanilla finish. Unusual but pretty damn tasty.

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle pours dark orange with a small soapy off white head and sparse lacing. Nose is big c hops c rackery malt lots of grapefruit and alcohol detected. Flavors are mostly c hops and tbe aforementioned malt base. Very balanced IIPA here however lacks much complexity. Becomes a tad sweet as it warms with long g rapefruity finish. Decent

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Downtown Spirits, Seattle
Beautiful amber color, bright and clean, with medium sized compact head. Mild aroma of resiny hops and caramelly malt. Good body strength; the flavor is essentially based o malt and caramel, with a touch of cereals; it’s lean, with just a bit of sweetness, so it doesn’t get cloying; the hops are not very bright, but they still carry a good degree of bitterness and some hop resins; bitter orange peel in the final.
Not vibrant, but a solid brew.
