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.

Medium orange/amber color - soft creamy head. Aroma is sweetly citrus, with notes of bubblegum and other fruits. Fabuolusly hoppy flavor, rich and lively. Finish is sweet and clean without being cloying. Truly a world-class IPA.

WeeHeavySD (3379) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2008 12 oz bottle. Purchased at Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor in Washington DC. Pours straw colored with a large white head. The hop aroma is omniprescent I could smell it immediatley after the pour. The taste is hoppy and bitter with a lingering bitter edge. Its refreshing but sharp, not as drinkable as other IPAs, but definetly good.

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2006
smells sweet; pours cloudy pale that you can almost see through. It has a very lite and unique flavor that isnít the best example of an IPA but itís memorable and has lots of character. If your looking for somthing with more punch I suggest you look elsewhere, but for something strong (% wise) yet smooth this is a good buy.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 20, 2006
12 oz bottle. Hazy orange color with thin white head that left a bit of lace on the glass. Distinct vegetal, floral hop aroma. The hops come out again in the flavor, of course, and are accompanied by an adequate, but marginalized malty backbone. Nice and bitter on the tongue.

Aroma has alot of citrus.Pours a copper color with a white head.Taste is a great balance of hops and malt.At first you get the big hops then a good bit of malt with a nice bitter finish.If I plan on drinking alot this is the one I usually go to.Very easy to drink.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2007 22 OZ bottle from shigadeyo (Thanks!). She pours a hazy orange/copper with an average size white head. Nice floral aroma with some sweet mandarin orange, caramel malts, some pine and perhaps some floral hops. Tastes just like it smells, and is pretty sweet for an IPA. The hops are there in abundance, however there is a strong malt backbone as well. It is not a hop-bomb, but it is a very tastey hopy (not bitter) beer.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Bottle; pours light honey orange with a generous creamy head, good lacing all the way down. Very inviting floral aroma with hoppy citrus follow through. The hops definitely come through in the taste, but I found this to be a very mature, complete flavor, with a nice clean finish. Keeps you coming back for more with each sip; this beer delivers!

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2006
12oz bottle: Pours a big head, white, foamy, creamy, good lacing. Cloudy amber color, good bubbles, fizz. Very strong hoppy aroma, fresh smelling. Bitter taste, some sweet mid-taste, somewhat smooth/bitter aftertaste. Creamy. A good IPA, but a little strong and unbalanced. A little acidic.
