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: JUL 6, 2006 Batch 7196 bottle. Aroma of piney and floral hops, with a little bit of grapefruityness. Smells freakiní awesome. Slight sweet malts also noted. Hazy light golden with a small white head. Big floral hops in flavor, with a fair amount of bitterness midway, and slight bitterness in the finish taken over with a sweet homemade bread maltiness. Very well balanced for an IPA. Very softly carbonated. Will be getting this one again!

IndianaRed (3483) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Bottle Batch 6957 Pours a clear light orange golden with ahuge fluffy persistant white head. As is slowly recedes, the glass is still coated with lacing that is drying in place. Like that fake frost people spray in their windows. Aroma is quite sweet for the style, more on the citrusy side than piney. Flavor is rather mild in the hops and the sweet light malts are mellow and soft. Carbonation is much less than I expected after the loud HISS when I opened it and for the size of the head produced. Very mild bitternes on the trailer and a very soft feel. Very yummy. Thanks to Styles for setting me up with this one

chicagobears (447) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 Intense floral nose. Suprising and pleasant. Golden brown, a bit hazy. Nice and bitter. The hops are almost overwhelming, but are most welcomed. Iím enjoying this a hell of a lot more than I thought I would. Rich clinging head that follows to the end.

My favorite IPA. Better than Stone. A golden hazy color. Lots of centenial hops on the nose. Awesome hop flavor and enough malt to make everything perfect. Long bitter dry finish. Great!

Batch # 7094. Light brown in color. Aroma was very floral, and somewhat fruity. Big time hops, and somewhat bitter. Iím not an IPA fan, but itís one of the better ones Iíve had.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
ALMOST over the top of my grapefruit threshold, but manages to toe the line. A sparkling, brightly bitter IPA that deserves the praises heaped upon it. Malt is clean, full of melons and toffee.

This beer was one of the highlights of the 2005 GABF. Nice copper color - hard to tell much about the head with my tiny glass. Aroma was fruity and floral. Hops throughout with a sharpness in flavor that ended on a dry note.

Flavor is very citrusy and grapefuit with a mild bitterness to it What a wonderful beer! And available yer round... Try them both the river and the beer. Via rainbow lodge UP michigan..
