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.

Poured into Spieglau IPA glass. Orangish-copper with a beige foamy and creamy head. Deep grapefruit citrus aromas lead the charge with resiny back notes. Crisp and clean bitterness on the palate with a light-medium body and medium to high carbonation. Good but IMO doesn't hold up to some of the ratings I've seen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well balanced. Great hop taste with the perfect amount of malt to keep it balanced. Along the line of Victory's Hop Devil but with a little more citrus/pine hop presence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crack the cap and smell the hops. Very flowery hops aroma. Dark golden brown color with a nice head. Awakens your tongue with the strong hops flavor. Absolutely one of my favorites. Although I dont recommend an entire 6 pack in a sitting. You will pay for it.

Bottle pours a golden amber with thick tan white head. Aroma is big and hoppy lots of floral and citrus with a soft mellow malty sweetness. Taste is Hops hops hops with just a little soft malty sweetness. Very dry bitter pucker finish. Good solid daily drinker.

12 oz to pint glass. Clear amber with thin but lacing head. Bright hops and floral on the noise. Great balanced malt to taste. Incredibly well balanced ale. So much that you might not pin it for an ipa.

Mini-keg. Slightly cloudy copper pour, big foamy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grassy floral hops. Flavor is bitter floral hops with hints of citrus.

Fantastic head, mindblowing aroma, and an absolutely fantastic body. The hop and malt balance is perfect for this IPA. I daresay, one of the best IPAs i’ve ever had the chance to taste.

Ive never given a beer a perfect score on any category. This beer however looked beautiful for a pale. Huge, I mean huge, head with an orange body. Nice full ale taste. Overall a great beer.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Appearance: reddish, orange, copper, light haze; above average head with decent retention Aroma: lots of fruit, floral, and citrus, as expected from the centennial hops; very easy to enjoy Flavor: wow, centennial is quite different than simcoe; all floral and fruit; very easy to like; refreshing; also a noticeable grainy, yeasty presence which adds, rather than subtracts, from the overall experience; medium to medium-high bitterness, and it is kept in check nicely Palate: pretty smooth; medium bodied; quite high carbonation--probably too high; (tasted twice)
