COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our traditional small batch IPA is cask conditioned, dry hopped, hand pulled, and served at cellar temperature (55°). Coppery-gold hue with a full floral cascade hop aroma. Rich bready malts lay a perfect foundation for the profusion of tangy, citrusy hops that infuse this beer with a distinct ruby-red grapefruit quality that starts on the palate and lingers through a long satisfying finish.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy sediment-laden peach body, thin off-white head. Strong citrusy aroma, piney, with sweet caramels and breads. Caramely, bready body with light sweetness, balanced by medicinal, herbal hops. There’s a funky yeast component that reminds me of Leopold Bros., another Ann Arbor brewer. Nice.

Bottle... Cloudy amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Fruity, estery nose with herbal, citrus hops. Notes of caramel and black tea.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2006
12oz - Aroma is very sweet carmel and cotton candy with some piney hops in the background. Pours cloudy carmel with a small head and decent lacing. Flavor starts with the carmel malt then quickly moves onto the sticky piney hops. Nice balance. Palate is tart and sticky. It really improves when it warms up. There is something different about this IPA and I really like it.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2006
Served cask conditioned. The pour reveals a clear dark gold color with a ring of white lace. Superb aroma of resinous hops and pine needles. Amazing flavor of resinous hops and pine needles with a robust toasted malt, the whole experience finishes with bitterness. The body is light to medium with a heavenly texture due to cask conditioning, the carbonation is low. A truly great beer.
