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.

Tasted at Arbor Brewing Company. Clear amber appearance. Notes of citrus in the nose. Soft and creamy. Mild sweet malt flavors are quickly overtaken by grapefruit and orange citrus flavors. Well balanced and quite good.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2006
Cask at the brewpub-Orange haze pour with a froth of white foam leaving nice lacing. Orange citrus hoppiness with good solid sweet malt sweetness and a pine influence. Silky smooth corriander fruit rind and hops in the mouth. Soft carbonated malt candy as well. Creamy smooth finish, very drinkable. An easy session drink. Great!

cask. slightly hazy bright orange with a creamy, soapy off-white head that has great retention throughout the entire half pint. awesome biscuit cookie aroma with lots of citrus soapiness and creamy malt. a fantastic session IMO...I would definitely be able to drink a few of these. creamy up front with soft inviting carbonation leading into orange citrus, sometimes piney hops. very creamy and quaffable. great stuff.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Cloudy orange, with yellow fringes. SIlky head of ivory. Buttery pine and floral aroma. Flavor is all hops, with no malt background. Mostly dissapointing. Straight metallic hop bitterness. With lime rind and oak. Finish is completely grassy. One dimensional.

Translucent, bold orange in color with no movement anywhere. Thoughts of "pancake bitters" formulate with the first wafts, which means the aroma’s taking on some maple traits, along with oranges, grapefruit and papaya. Clean laundry sense to it all. Specially concocted grapefruit enzymatic juice kick starts the flavor. Pulpy, sweet orange display. Bitters hibernate but resound in the wake of each special sip. Medium-bodied, gently rolling in and taking a squeegee to the tongue. Orange dust comes in on the finish with citric highlights and pervasive bitters.

Had to try this when I was in Ann Arbor. One of my favorite IPAs. Very well-balanced with the right amount of hop balance. Served at a perfect 55 degrees. Love the copper bar...reminded me of Old Port, Maine.

Grapefruit-orange hops in the nose with underlying biscuity malts. Hazy orange-tan with low white head that recedes to ring with some lace. Floral, orange and grapefruit hop flavours hover over a biscuity and toasty malt base with moderate finishing bitterness. Nice balancing act between sweet malts and spicy hops. Medium-light body with engaging, lively carbonation. Sampled on cask at the brewpub.

Tap at abc.: Rather bitter and unbalanced from what I can remember, although just the right amount of hoppiness. Good nose that was complex and full, hidden abv well, a nice hand pulled ipa. Worth the try if you go

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
Servi du cask. Couleur orangée, apparence non filtrée. Bonne formation et tenue de mousse, adhérant aussi au verre. Arômes houblonnés, style agrume, et maltée (plus maltée que leur best bitter). Le cask n’apporte qu’une faible signature. Bonne base de malt, quelque résidu de sucre. Corps semi mince à moyen, finale amère.

Draft at Arbor Brewing. Clear amber with a medium head that diminshed quickly. Good complex aroma. Medium body. Full flavor of citrus with a dry bitter finish. Very good IPA.
