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. ☺

Mostly clear full amber brown with thick frothy head. Cat piss bitter hop aromas. Hops and grain hit about the same time much smoother then expected but still full flavors. Lasting grainy hop left behind.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a bottle into an Alaskan Brewing pint glass. Aroma is of grass and straw, reminds me of a fall day. Appearance is a clear golden amber with a thick two finger creamy head that lingers through the session. Taste is a semi sweet grassy straw hop flavor with a slight bitterness at the finish. Overall well balanced. Palate is very good with a slight creaminess to it. Overall a great double IPA Iíd stack up against any other. Well worth trying and I highly recommend this beer. Cheers!

I thought this was excellent. Definitely strong but has a great hop flavor with a lot of late grapefruit. Quite tasty.

Poured from a bottle into a Alaska Brewing Pilot Series Pint glass a golden orange with a white head that laced beautifully down the side of the glass as the brew was drained.
Aroma is slight sweet grasses (smile)
Flavor is better than aroma. Resin grass with a citrus bitter finish. Smooth. Extremely drinkable. Balanced flavor like so few can do. Outstanding!

Son let me just explain this beer. Big citrus blast upon opening, big citrus and pine ripe tropical fruit taste. Dry as hell. Malty balance. Just punches you in the mouth in the best way. This are insane good and for 8.5% abc you canít even tell. Exceptional beer. Drink tons of these.

On tap at Manito tap house.
Poured a golden raisin color with a etched surface of some light tans
Smells like apricot and tangerines with some sweet malts, a good tangy nose. Taste follows suit with lots of fruit, lots of apricot, peach, tangerines and some crystal malts. Thereís a touch of dank hops in the finish. Medium bodied with liberal carb and a nice semi dry finish that stimulates the salivary glands. Nice beer. Reminds me of duet from alpine
