The Kalamazoo IPA pours a subset orange with a thick ivory head that lasts a good while and leaves thick rings of lacing. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit and orange. The flavor is citrus all the way. Overall this is a nice IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap 1/29/09 at the Eccentric cafe...From the tap board"An Experimental IPA" Pours a copper brown with a good lacing head. Very piney/citrusy aroma, taste is about the same with some woody earthy notes as well. Tastes much like a toned down Two Hearted. Very Enjoyable with a tart, slightly bitter, crisp finish.

On tap at Eccentric Café. Amber with a thin white slowly fading head. Aroma of pine, citrus and sweet malts. Taste of twigs and pine balanced out by sweet malt. Mildly sticky with a mild bitter finish that lingers on for a bit.

GABF 2013. Pours a bit hazy golden orange appearance with a light tan head. Soft grapefruity/citrusy, somewhat spicy hoppy aroma. Flavor really reminds me of Two Hearted with a juicy grapefruity forward flavor along with some grassy and herbal notes. Would like to drink again.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate grapefruit, citrus, and light grass. It’s a transparent amber with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film and leaves some thin webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus and a touch of tropical fruits. The finish has moderate grapefruit with a touch of grass. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Sampler Flight pour on tap at Eccentric Cafe (Kalamazoo, MI). Pours a nice deep amber orange hue, a gentle bit of haze but a deeper glow permeates the body, summer sunset hues come in and out with a frothy whitish head atop that dies to a firm ring, good lacing for it’s size. Aromas show citrusy grapefruit, a bit of leon, florals and green earthy hops. Touches of bready malts, a touch more subtance. Growing hop elements as we settle in. Initial is lighter end of the fold with a touch of girth, firm bite of grapefruit with touches of melon, lemon and florals. Nice spritzy citrus hop element picks up steam with grapefruit zest, juice elements setting the pace. Middle is cleaner body, allowing the hop elements to shine. Firm bitterness and florals hit into the backend, fresh American hop vibe shows just a bit of tropical fruit, faint melon and gumball. Finish is dry, a firm bitterness lingers on with pithy grapefruit, some florals and earth. Solid, fresh. The body never gets in the way, just a touch of Crystal sweetness at times that even drewbeerme could tolerate, and allows a good hop element to shine albeit not in an oppressive/overdone manner. Tasty stuff.

DrSilverworm (6981) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
~5oz pour on tap at Maduro during GTMW. Hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves pretty nice lace. Great citrusy hop profile, lightly spicy citrus, tropical fruit notes, guava, mango. Impressive hop. Some light bubblegum. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid, refreshing smooth and flavorful hoppy well-done IPA.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2009
On tap at Maduro. Poured medium amber with a large, creamy cap of off-white head.. just lovely! The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit over a bed of soft caramel.. building floral and spicy character as it warmed up.. well-balanced. The flavor found grainy caramel and pale malts at the core with citrus, spicy floral, and piney bitterness around.. simple-ish, but tasty. Medium-bodied and again grainy on the palate, but the balance was spot-on and it was easy-drinkin’.

Pint - Aroma is very hoppy with pine and citrus. Flavor is full of chewy hops and caramel malts. Palate is crisp and tart. A very nice session IPA.
