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.

12oz bottle. Grapefruit hop aroma, very fresh. You can almost smell a "grean" leafy plant. Some light caramel also. Varies bottle to bottle within this six pack. Very nice amber-orange color with an inch tall off-white head. Nice malty flavor with brilliant grapefruit bitterness and a slight metallic note. Again, varies bottle by bottle. One bottle tasted like it still had hops floating in it, the one I’m currently rating is a bit more subdude. Medium body with an oily palate and a slightly dry finish. I really liked this beer, but it wasn’t consistent. All bottles were from batch 7010.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2005
Pours a light and cloudy amber body. Aromas are citrus, cotton candy, pine needles, malt, and some floral hints. Taste is bitter sweet, candy, pine, with some vegetal flavours to accompany. Pretty damn good IPA if you ask me. Thanks Diana!

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Good India. Incredibly citrusy, slightly piney aroma. Fairly pale, with assertive bitterness and hop flavor. Solid malt base stays out of the way of the lupulin. Good beer, great brewery.

agl108 (899) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2008 12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Centennial hops dominate the aroma with that distinct citrus nose. Malts and hops compliment each other nicely. A very solid beer and worth its lofty rating.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Pours a light orange/golden color with a solid two finger head that sticks around for a while, with quite a bit of lacing. Has a really nice pine, citrus, floral hop smell to it. Taste is initially piney, foloowed by slightly bitter hops, and finishes with a nice sweet malt that keeps the hops from overwhelming. Really nice IPA that I wish I had more of.

Bottled. Clear amber coloured with a huge off white head. Sweet aroma of hops, pine needles and caramel. Flavour of hops, pine needles, fruits and caramel.

Bottled. Pours a dark golden/orange with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet malty and very hoppy. Taste is sweet, notes of fruit and rasins, and very hoppy. Long sweet and bitter aftertaste

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2005
this was awesome. the malts and hops are well balanced. very east coast IPA feel to it. bitter finish but nice and creamy to start with. the orange, lemon and pine aromas and flavors work themselves in with the hops. excellent.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 rerate, batch 8359. God, this stuff is good when its fresh! Floral, bitter, with an almost candy like sweetness, but balances out before it goes overboard. It leaves you with a long wonderfully bitter aftertaste, and you just cant wait to have another swig. I had to re-rate this, only because i love it so damn much.
