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: OCT 24, 2010 Both floral and bitter in its hop content, this is a distinctly balanced IPA. The medium level alcohol strength is hidden enough to make this one worthy of multiple bottles in one sitting.

On tap at Handlebar in Chicago, $3 on Saturdays! Anyway, what can I say but wow! This was a nice nice nice nice beer. Smelled distinctly piney with some citrus, Very solid malt backbone to balance out the crazed hop mayhem. Actually, I jest. The hop series in this IPA is not too complex, though it does a great job of making a terrificly balanced brew. Deep gold with a rockin’ rocky head. Amen.

on tap served nice and cold. hops are apparent in the nose. a little sweet on the onset followed by a nice crisp and clean bitter hop finish. grapefruit in the flavor. a pint of this on tap cost 3 dollars on a saturday night at the HandleBar in Chicago. highly recommended

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Ah IPA another of my favorite styles. I have managed to have this beer several times in the past but for some reason I have never managed to rate it. Sampled from a typical 12 oz brown bottle this fine beer poured a rich golden color with a medium sized yellow-white head. Very pretty. A strong grapefruit, pine and sweet sugary scent fairly explodes from the glass as one can smell this one before the glass is even taken in hand. The front taste is sweet and pear like with a thick mouthfeel. Then on comes full bore hops. Strong elements of grapefruit that become dominant and linger forever on the aftertaste. Really a very fine IPA.

Gosh this beer has a lot going for it. The color is somewhat unusual for an IPA. As my wife called it, a golden honey color. An outrageous melding of scents in the aroma. Everything is here, bananas, citrus (lemon, grapefruit most prevelant), hops and possibly some spice. If I give it some thought I’m sure I might find something else in the aroma. The beer is a nice balance of citrus flavors, mostly grapefruit. With a genuine hop finish. Quite enjoyable.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Great fruit nose of orange, apple and almost rosey notes. Slightly murky orange color with big white rocky head that has good lacing. Big citrus flavors like grapefruit and orange. Nice creamy texture. Hoppy but very balance with a great grain profile and a dry finish. This is one great beer.

Holy Crap. Alan (Fly) brought by a 5L mini keg of this for New Years Eve! Great beer!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2004
bottle. Huge rocky off white head. Cloudy light orange color. Aroma lightly sweet, citrus, peach, and grapefruit. Light body. Light malt sweetness backed by big hop flavor of citrus/grapefruit. Long pleasant bitterness, good balance.

Looks a little weak after the pour, but when you take a taste all is forgiven. This is a great ale! Nice citrusy notes. Wonderful hoppiness. Decent malting in the background. This puppy packs a slight punch despite its initial look. Buy this beer.
