3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Tap: Golden-amber body, with a cloudiness that looks more robust than just a regular chill haze. Solid, clumpy and clunky off-white head that has good retention and leaves back some nice lacing. Aroma has good notes of citrus, oranges, grapefruit rinds, hop oils, some faint caramel malt, sweet toasted bread, and some light white pepper in the finish. Taste is similar, leading the way with a strong, toasted break & cracker malt backbone; orange zest, leafy hop oils, citrus peels, a bit herbal. Bitter, but not much... Could pass for a pale ale, even. Nothing extraordinary, just a decent IPA all around.

This is a very solid IPA. The hops and malt flavors are well balanced and donít overpower each other. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: A solid looking amber color. I was working outside so I didnít pay much attention, but I did notice the massive head when I was pouring -- off-white, creamy. I had more head than beer when I first poured... donít be too aggressive with it. Not very much lacing despite the head.
Smell: Quite floral. Malty. Somewhat sweet. Nothing too memorable, but it definitely smells like an IPA.
Taste: Floral hops. Resinous. Somewhat dry. Mildly soapy. Drinks very easily. Itís a pretty ordinary IPA, but itís a fair price, itís local, and thereís nothing bad about it. Itís pretty hoppy on the front, but balanced nicely, so itís not too assertive. I enjoy it.
A respectable beer. My first from Arbor, and itís good enough that Iíd be more than willing to have another or try some of their other brews.
