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.

Pint at Ashleys at Westland. Coppery with a creamy long lasting head. This offers citrus hops that begin with grapefruit but fades a bit. Caramel might be helped some by oatmeal (or maybe that is something I have been tasting of late). The bitterness lasts here and defines the after taste. Generally subtle and nice.

Cask at the brewery. Gorgeous hazy-cider pour. Mouthfeel is thin, but the beer grows on me as another well-balanced but not-too-sweet midwest IPA.

12oz bottle from Plum Market in Ann Arbor. Gold pour with a sturdy light tan head. Aroma is bread, citrus and floral. Tastes are sweet malt, grass, citrus and bread. Bitter, spice and cereal in the finish. Eh.

Poured from bottle, pours a hazy orange/amber with a fluffly white head, aroma has some citrus and hops, the flavor is more sweet than hoppy but has a decent balance, easy drinking.

Lemos, hop , grass and mild fruit. It’s a bit thin, but not bad. A good citrus finish. I enjoyed it.

Thanks to Dad. Orange slightly cloudy. Almost a peppery bitterness. Not a hop bomb but not mild neither. Balanced and refreshing. Serving: Bottle

On tap at BW3's. Slightly cloudy darkish orange pour with a thick creamy head. Very nice appearance. Strong spicy malt aroma with some citrus hops. Taste is creamy from the head, a very nice citrus and grassy hop taste, all backed up with a nice spicy malt backbone. A nice amount of bitterness too. Clean refreshing finish. A very good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma it has nice citrus grapefruity aroma Appearance really nice gold/copper color, a bit hazy Taste bitter but not too bitter, nice grapefruit note, also a little boozy Palate medium body with a slick texture and average carbonation having a long bitter finish. Conclusion: an easy drinking IPA, this is one to introduce to your friends that like commerecial bitter beers

Nice tasting...not my favorite IPA. Aftertaste is not your typical IPA taste.

[4108-20111112] Cask. Light orange citrus hops aroma. Hazy, brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Lightly buttered bitter grassy orange-tinged hops flavour has a lingering bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Interesting enough, seems a touch under-carbonated but it is on cask; don’t really see the sacredness. (6~/3/7/3/13) 3.2
