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.

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. Itís light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, this is a really flavor and well balanced Pale Ale. Iíll definitely be picking up some more of this for the summer. Itís been awhile since Arbor impressed me with something new in a bottle.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
