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.

Bottle. Tons of hops. Too much for me as I prefer those IPAís on the light side of hop heaven. None the less, this was refreshing and actually the enjoyment dwindle as the beer does as the hops were somewhat overbearing. Still enjoyed the beer and would have another from time to time.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2006 I love hops and I love this beer. Strong aroma of hops with straw yellow color and medium head with strong hop flavor throughout. A VERY good IPA.

Nice deep orange color, medium frothy head. Wonderful hops nose -- hay and wildflowers - boy, I could attach the glass to my nose, running around and sniffing at it the whole day. Flowery, some lavender and hay taste with a medium long bitter aftertaste.

bottle. thanks for the bottle Len. pours a cloudy golden-orange body with a large creamy/frothy white head. aroma has some creamy sweet malts and a leafy floral hop presence. smooth creamy body with big resiny citrus hops up front...yeasty and sharp towards the end with a very long piney finish. an excellent IPA.

Light amber pour with medium white head, present intil last sip. IPAís arenít usually my thing, and this was no different. It was enjoyable intil the middle, then I had problems. Aroma was floral, flavor had a spicy distinct hop kick. It was surprisingly smooth to drink for the first couple of sips. Itís a good beer, just not my style.

On tap at the Clarkston Union. This light amber ale poured with a sparse white head, eliciting a very hoppy, floral aroma. The flavor, too, was quite hoppy and smooth with a carbonated mouthfeel. This is a very balance and tasty brew that goes well with most food.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Cask version at Firkinís, Libertyville, IL. Hazy light amber hued having small diminishing white head with good lacing. Lovely spicey hoppy aroma. No discernable carbonation. Medium bodied that starts with a clean slightly sweet malt flavor with flowery hops and finishes dry with flowery hops and moderate bitterness. Nice balance of hops and malt. A delicious tasty hoppy beer.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2009 Pours a beautiful hazy amber color with a nice big head. aroma is very hoppy and really smells like a summer afternoon. Flavor is very well balanced there is lots of hops and some nice sweetness. also the flavor is a tad bit fruity. Flavor is very nice, however it does feel a little watery and could stand a little bit more dexture, nevertheless this is a great IPA.
