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.

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.

slabonator (29) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2006
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.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2006
On draft at Dilly Deli. Cask Conditioned. Hazy orange/gold. Much milder aroma and initial flavor out of the cask, but the after taste was still there. It was really good, very drinkable.

Thanks Illinismitty!! Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small head and no center lacing, just a little ring by the glass. Aroma is light and slightly fruity with a very mild hop hint. Flavor is hoppy and slightly bitter, like a grapefruit. Sticks to the palate and lingers. The aftertaste didnít do a whole lot for me, but i enjoyed the beer otherwise.

HomesickAlien (20) - Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 12oz. bottle, slightly hazy gold/orange with a foamy white head of large bubbles that lasts. Lots of dense lacing. Intense floral hop aroma, grapefruit, pine. Flavor matches aroma, could use a bit more malt flavor. Mouthfeel is watery and moderately carbonated. Finishes with pine, citrus and hops. Somewhat acidic.
