COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our newest beers, it is very unique. Itís light alcohol content makes it very drinkable, but the hops pack a wallop. Brewed with four different malt, plus Herkules, Magnum, Centennial, and Cascade, and more Herkules go into this one.

crossovert (7309) - Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2012
12 bottle, just under 3 months old, hopefully it holds up. It is rather low in abv for an ipa. It pours a hazy amber with a foamy white head. The smell is mostly citrus. Orange is a prominent scent. Maybe some peach in there too. Light fruits, subtle malt sweetness. The flavor is decent. It isnít too sweet which is nice. It also isnít too massively hopped. With .5% less abv it does have a better flavor than Founders All Day IPA. It is not too sweet, but still nectary. Plenty of fruits and citru, medium to low bitterness in the finish. It looks like the cans are brewed at Latrobe. The bottled version is fine, it looks like the canned version has some issues.

Pailhead (4778) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Bottle: The aroma is moderately grassy and also has some faint grain, floral, and pine notes. It pours a transparent gold with a three finger white head that has decent retention and leaves behind some spotty lacing. The flavor starts with quick dose of sweet grain/cereal notes. The finish is moderately grassy along with light-moderate pine and light floral notes. Light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, it comes across as a blend between an IPA and a hoppy Pilsner.

Finhead (1172) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2011
A clear, deep gold pour with a frothy white head. The aroma is filled with floral hops and some pine mixed in. The light body has a crisp yet slightly oily texture with lively carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter up front, but it quickly fades to a relatively clean finish.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2012
A decent IPA, but nothing much to this guy. Seems like the staple run of the mill IPA every brewery has.

Onslow (1153) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz can - siz pack from Gilís Market in Cooper Township. Clear amber brew with frothy white head. Moderately hoppy aroma - grass, pine, citrus. Taste is a bit weak at the very start of the swallow followed by nice maltiness towards the middle with a decent bitter hops finish. Very tasty and quaffable. Rather light bodied with an average palate.

demitriustown (1064) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2011
12 oz can: Appearance is a clear golden with a ver thick white head that lingers. Aroma has got a nice grassy and floral hop aroma, nicely pungent hop texture. Taste has a nice hop textur, somewhat resinous, sticky, grassy, and herbatious. More of a cereal, bread note from the malts but mostly hops in this one. Overall, Itís a nice hoppy season beer that is pretty good.

nearbeer (3677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2011

Flavor is toast, biscuit, beeswax, resin, light citrus, and eucalyptus. Light body is soft, and watery, with a dry finish. Tasty low-abv session ale.
