COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Wow, big pine aroma - tons of hops up front. Its mellow and smooth, nicely bitter and well balenced. Not watery at all. Good full flavour throughout. Nice malt backing, citrus and spice and spruce in the flavour. Well done.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy dark gold with healthy head. Floral aroma. Strong hoppy taste, but with floral background taste for balance.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Bottle.(6826) Pour a cloudy light neon golden/orange, billowy medium white head, good lace and very bubbly. Bursting with honey coated spicy hops, some light alcohol, and mild yeasty/bready notes. Very smooth and perfect balance of caramel malt presence, with citrus, spicy hops, not to sweet and not to dry. Not overly hoppy, but fresh and very pleasant hop presence. Great lingering aftertaste, to what I though initially was going to be very short flavor profile. Thin mouthfeel. High/medium drinkability. Very nice.

MrBrewski (42) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Love this beer, Pours a yellowish amber color with a large slightly off white head. Very aromatic, lots citrus grapefruit and orange with a hint of pine and perhaps a bit floral. Medium bodied with a fruity citrus hop taste and perhaps some floral overtones with excellent balance, the malt then comes in and the finish is slightly sweet mixed with the complex hops. Texture is creamy with a touch of hop resin. This beer just puts a smile on my face and makes me feel good. Excellent! re-rated on 10/30 as the more I drink this nectur the more I like it.

Pours a yellowish copper gold color with a fading white head. Smells like a pine forrest mixed in with flowers. Tastes like your classic west coast IPA. Citrusy,very hoppy with that pine needle bite to it. Excellent.

lamas (1372) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle. Batch ID #7025. Packaged on: August 23, 2005. A hazy, pale orange pour with a thin off-white head. One of the more floral aromas Iíve ever smelled. Like fresh-cut flowers! Lots of citrusy hops, pine needles, sap and scented soaps. Solidly medium-bodied. The taste is also quite floral with a good balance of citrusy hops and malts. Almost herbal. Finish is a bit short with no real lingering bitterness. Unique taste. Great beer.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2005
The legend...at least in the midwest. Copper amber in color with a nice yeasty haze and everlasting white head. A floral hop aroma hits the nose in waves, followed by a light citrus hop and nice toasted malt background. Flavor is a solid balance of caramel malt, toasted malt, floral hops & bitterness, and fruity yeast. Nice smooth mouthfeel, not cloying but nicely sweet and lingering. A solid IPA deserving of itís reputation.

Had this on tap for the first time recently and really enjoyed it with a feta pizza. The strong hops flavor is outstanding and it complemented the cheese perfectly.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 Pours dark amber with big creamy white head, mostly lasting. Nice lacing. Big aroma, pine and grapefruit. Smells very fresh. Flavor is grapefruit, orange peel, caramel malts, with a piney, earthy dry finish. Dances on the tongue for a wonderful mouthfeel. Fantastic texture, medium body, smooth and creamy. Very easy drinking, tough to put this one down. Outstanding IPA.
