Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler. Pours a golden amber with a smaller off white bubbly head. Aroma of pine, caramel, orange and sweet hard candy. Flavors of the same.

Brought a growler of this back from my recent Detroit trip. On the board as a ’Belgian Double IPA’. Poured a deep and slightly hazy, amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of orange peel, caramel, citrus, pine, and a little on the doughy side. Tastes of citrus, pine, caramel, and light wood. Medium bitter finish with light malts (would have preferred more of a balance for an IIPA).

Thanks to hopdog for this...
Appears a hazy amber color with a fluffy white head. Scattered streaks of lace left all around the glass.
Smell is of caramel, flowers, dough, citrus, pine, and candy.
Taste is of the same aromas with a light woodiness to the flavor.
Mouthfeel is slightly thin with the bitterness slightly outweighing the malt.

Poured a hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, resin, dough, light caramel, and citrus fruits. Taste of more citrus, some caramel, nuts, wood, grapefruit, and light alcohol in the finish.

Best Double I.P.A. I’ve ever had. Slight Belgian yeast character and some candy sugar noticed as well. Full of flavor. Huge hops and huge flavor

One of their best beers, this spring seasonal is a stronger alcohol content IPA served in a big snifter. A nice full bitterness with caramel and floral uundertones, this is a sure bet if you’re in Royal Oak this spring.
