COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Ypsi Gypsy contains mostly pale malts for a light body and lower alcohol beer. Hop bitterness is balanced by several late additions of Cascade and Centennial hops which give this beer a fruity citrusy hop flavor and a beautiful hop aroma.
Seasonality: August to March

Citrusy hop aroma. Nice golden color with good clarity. Balanced malt to hop which balances the boundaries of a hop. Light lingering bitterness and nicely carbonated for the flavor. West coast style.

Drinkable, light hop taste. Cloudy burnt orange color. Nice head with adequate lacing. Might get again just not for awhile.

A barely OK APA...drinkable, however nothing that I would go for again. A follow taster described it as "perfumed" and gave his beer away to someone that could stomach it. I didn’t think it was that bad, but Arbor Brewing has been very disappointing and this is no exception.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. SLightly pale amber brew with thick white head. Aroma of citrus and pine, not very strong but nice. Thinner palate. Weak malt taste at the start followed by a moderate degree of citrus and pine hops. Ends with little to no flourish. Leaves me thinking this could have been a really good APA but it was made too weak and watery. But still - light and refreshing and probably a nice gateway brew for macro fans.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thick white head, that fades to a nice film on the top of the beer. The lacing is thick and beautiful. The aroma is heavy on hops, with citrus and piney notes, a little more hoppy than I'd expect out of a low ABV pale ale. The flavor is also quite hoppy, but I'd like the citrus and piney notes to come through a little more than they do. The finish is light, smooth, and dry ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (6035) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Taster on tap at HopCat in East Lansing. Mostly clear golden color. Thin white head, good spread of thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth crisp lighter carbonation. Good bigger spicy citrusy hop profile, light biscuity malt. Bigger bitter taste. Light hint of zesty sweetness. Awesome hoppy assertive pale ale.

jsquire (3402) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2013
Yellow gold color out of the bottle with a huge, frothy white head. Very effervescent beer. Light spritzy, lemony nose. Lemon peel and some bitter orange peel hop flavors with some light toast underneath. Long red grapefruit peel finish. Okay pale.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Hazy golden yellow with a creamy taupe head. Aroma is grainy and pale with corn and dusty malts. Taste comes through better than aroma with citrus and floral hops along with pale malt and low bitterness.

flatmatt (1087) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours an almost clear golden amber with a white head. Orange and grapefruit citrus hop aromas, hinting at lemon and pine. Flavor lean more toward biscuity malts, with grassy hops, hinting at pine and citrus, decent hop bitterness. Smells nice, but a little too restrained on the flavor.
