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.

Bottle. (from trade with the_epeeist) Golden, almost clear body, under a white head leaving nice lacings. Piney, citrusy, beef-stock malty nose with resin as well. Even though the flavor is on the hoppy side, there’s a balance to it, and I like it. It has a nice level of bitterness, with the usual flavors from the hops, and a good dash of malts. It could maybe have a little bit fuller body, but I’m not holding it against it. The finish is long, resiny and fruity, with a nice bitterness. Lovely, really lovely IPA. (070719)

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2008
Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest 08. Gold with thick off white head. This has a huge reputation so perhaps I was more critical with this than if it was just another beer. Really resiny hop. Piney grapefruit. Some sherbert. Then I tasted it. Fairly thin and sharp in mouth. Some decent fruit on end. A pretty decent IPA. Pretty easty to drink, malts are ok. Certainly doesn’t taste of 7.0%. It’s good. Aroma is great. Finish leaves me a bit cold. Tangerine fruit is good and the hops are excellent.

Dedollewaitor (14108) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2008
12oz bottle. Thanks to TheEpeeist. Pours hazy golden with a fine stable creamy white head & handsome lacings. Nose is hoppy - lots of fruity citrus & floral notes. Overall a hoppy IPA with just a touch of bready malts. Pine, grapefruit & citrus. Very fresh & crisp. Long lasting bitter end! This is quality! Very nice!

Theis (13801) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle at homw - shared with Mette. Unclear amber - light yellow head. A high hoppy nose. Aroma: Citrus, pine, freshly cut grass, dry grass. Aroma: Citrus, grape, resin, grass, pineneedle, crisp. Simpel sugar sweetness. Soft mouthfeeling, light carbonated. High hoppy bitter finish !! Very nice but a bit too simpel.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2011
Draught, 7.1%. Good hoppy aroma, mildly piney, hint of orange juice and perhaps flatulence. Cloudy dark golden colour. Small stable frothy white head. The flavour is nicely hoppy, not unlike the aroma. There is a hint of vanilla and some soft fruit, very faint. A well-crafted and subtle beer, and very good.

Medium amber color with scant white head. Aroma of orange and coriander. Medium full palate with strong bitter finish. Decent enough.

Bottled
Hazy orange, good steady creamy white head, some lace. Fabulous citrus and pinewood hoppy aroma. Good malty backed with lemony hops. Fruity finish, a bit yeast also in the flavor. I liked aroma more than flavor.

(Draught) Pours a copper color with a medium-sized white head. A light hoppy flavor with a balanced array of floral and bitter accents.
