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

The scent is of yeast, malts, hops, & citrus fruit. I taste the flavor. The malts are very well identified. The hops show up nicely but do not add much bitterness to this drink. Overall it is a nice balanced pale ale that is also refreshing due to the lack of intensity in the flavor.

Pours golden with fluffy head. Nice lacing going on. Smell is very pleasant with sweet citrus hop. The taste was disappointing. All the flavors are there, but this was a bit watered down in flavor. Could use a little more hop bite. Ok offering from ABC, and I think they could improve on this in the future with a bit more flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a fan of heavy hops, but this is good. Pours a hazy orange with a strong white head and very heavy lacing, to the point of sheeting the side of the glass. Predominantly hoppy with little to note in the malts as being totally overwhelmed.

Bottle pour to shaker glass. Attractive, gold color with a persistent, creamy head. Fresh, hoppy with a bit of sweetness; citrus. Smooth on the palate with tangy bitterness in the aftertaste. A good choice for a warm, sunny day.

Appearance is a cloudy orangey amber with a solid thick off-white head. Smell is citrus but overall pretty weak, even with my nose right up in its business. Mouthfeel is solid--medium bodied with the bitterness coming through. Taste is a very subtle pale, with the hops pleasant but not too strong. Overall a nice pale ale.

Draft. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Bottle: The aroma has moderate-heavy orange, light lemon, grapefruit, and a hint of caramel. It pours a hazy golden-orange with lots of sediment. It has a three finger off-white head that leaves behind some nice webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with and even mixture of citrus (mostly orange) and caramel. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and a touch of lemon. It’s light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, this is a really flavor and well balanced Pale Ale. I’ll definitely be picking up some more of this for the summer. It’s been awhile since Arbor impressed me with something new in a bottle.

Draft. Pours a slightly cloudy light orange color with no head. Hoppy aroma of grass, flowers, and citrus. Taste is a bit odd. Lots of bitterness is a little off putting. The hops don't seem to have a nice fresh flavor and the finish has an odd aftertaste. Disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from a bottle purchased at Champanes, this beer poured a hazy gold-orange with burnt orange color at the edges of the glass and made a four finger white and faint off-white head that receded to a thick billowing cover, the glass had generous carbonation, it left nice spots and rings of lacing, this ale had aromas of orange fruit, citrus and faint floral hops, faint toasted malt, there was some malt and fruit sweetness, it had flavors of citrus and light grassy hops with light toasted malt and fruit, there was some sweetness but the hops overshadowed it, the finish had a good hop bitterness to dry the palate, the mouth feel was light and creamy, and there was lots of carbonation on the tongue, a good APA.
