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.

Smells hoppy and floral, though a bit metallic. Pours cloudy golden color, with small cream colored head. Nice lacing. Hoppy, creamy, citrusy, bitter flavor. Dry finish with a little sweetness. Easy and smooth to drink. Overall, a different, yet interesting and crisp IPA.

A very blonde IPA with a big head. Extreme hop aroma. Very bitter but I expected more from the aroma. Only drawback was the large amount of residual sweetness. It was almost cloying as the beer warmed.

This is one damn fine IPA, the centennial hops just jump right out at you. Quite a bit of yeast on the nose, I wonder if bottle was okay? Fruity, citrusy, even a discernable mango note. nice clean finish in the mouthfeel, some of the hop monsters leave you begging for saliva.

Good head, thick lacing. Strong floral aroma. Hop finish. Not overpowering. Yummy and not one-dimensioned.

Not a hop head so this was much better than I had expected. Hoppy but not over the top, beautiful color, aroma but the flavor! Citrus, malt, crisp... a wonderful beer.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2006 Rerate: Not sure if there is a single beer that I have enjoyed as much over the last couple of years. My desert island beer. My lord this stuff is tasty. My first draught beer (just turned 21). I usually love the bitterness of IPAs, which this doesn’t have, but the stuff was incredible. Had it with a $2.50 large pizza- if anybody is ever in Muncie, IN GO to the Heorot! w00t!

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAR 20, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 Poured with a great foamy head, long lasting, great lacing. Color was very light copper, aroma of citrus and malt. Nice rounded body that finished with a hop bite. Very nice beer.

Rerate October ’06. Bottle from Silphium. Medium amber colored with a slight bit of haze. Fantastic white head that is persistant and great lacing. Superb floral hop aroma, bits of sweet malt tickle the olfactory. Medium bodied. Quite delicate in flavor, malty sweetness is gradually overtaken by a citrusy/floral hop flavor. LIngering light bitterness that is never harsh or astringent. This is just one fine beer.

Pours hazy orange with a thick creamy white head. Smells of sweet fruits, some citrus and some granny smith apple. Body is full yet the taste is light, crisp and fruity, apricots, lemon peel, and more granny smith. This is an extremely tasty beer. Much less bitter than many IPAs, making this a very complex and diverse beer. Highly recommended and worthy of the hype!

What a beer! With a appetizing floral aroma and moderate to above average lacing. This beer is so good. In appearance very cloudy, with a very complex taste - full of citrus, malt and others that I cannot identify. The bitter flavor is strong but not overpowering. This beer finishes dramatically with a nice robust fresh hop flavor. This is absolutely, in my opinion, second to none.
