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.

Tap at Hopleaf, Chicago Golden/Autumnal color...nice head, fruity, peachy aroma. Orange, fruits, mix in with solid malt backdrop...jazz drones on amongst the loud chatter...very nice balance of malt and bitterness/hops...But don’t misunderstand, this is hoppy...yeast kicks in nicely as well.

Goblincat (397) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Pours hazy gold. Nose is a very strong floral hops. Note: Very strong. This ale has more hops than any I can remember right off. A very floral taste and sharp bite. Incredible if you like that, but not so good to people like my wife who thought it too overwhelming. I like this one because I like hops. Very good.

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Orange in color with minimal head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste, wow, what an intense, fresh hop punch this beer packs. Grapefruit is the other prominent flavor here, and the balance between the two is simply wonderful.

Cloudy gold pour a white head and lots of sediment in the glass. Strong hoppy aroma and intense hoppy taste, smooth going down and very refreshing. Nice Ale.

You can tell they use the hops in this beer. You really have to be ready when you take the first sip of this beer. This is my favorite IPA but I am sure that has something to do with the fact that my heart is with the Upper Peninsula. Make sure you take the time to pour this beer into a glass because it is good looking and really brings a lot to the beer.

Pailhead (6016) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Bottle: Nice citrus hop nose. Pours a hazy yellow with lots of sediment. Decent white head with decent retention. Okay lacing. Lots of citrus in the initial taste, then the hops kick in in the finish. Stronger citrus taste than most IPA’s balances nicely with the hoppy finish. I could do withou the slight sour taste in the finish, but that really doesn’t do much to hurt the rating. Great balance equals great beer.

pineypower (2833) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Pours out a nice light orange hue of gold. Has a decent sized dense, creamy head, with a nice aroma of hops that tells of the taste of the beer. It has a nice dry hop taste that is balanced pretty well to make it a nice smooth brew.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2008 bottled: now anything with a fish on the bottle i already start to become uninterested....why do so many american micros have a fasination with animals on the label....’think of something original you slackers’. was a golden color with a nice crisp white head. nose of grassy citrus notes. nicely hopped...not over the top and maybe not enough....the way i like them....smooth backbone of malt pushes the back door open to a slight bitter grapefruit end. all in all swell. not swill. ya! i just had this again in minnesota and thought it was fabulous...nice solid ipa flavors

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2004
golden copper with white head. Big dry-hopped nose of fresh centennials? Piney/citrus aroma. Hops are definitely the focus here being very assertive, but somehow it balances well with the malt. Nice dry-hopped IPA
