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.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 I tend to favor the imperial IPAs, but I must say that this brew is one of the best IPAs I’ve had yet. The complex hop bouquet nose greets you immediately. While the hop bill on this is no doubt a great combination, it is the delicate bread-like malt combinaton that impressed me the most. A near-perfect brew.

A little over a month old bottle so still pretty fresh. A- Really nice appearance, one finger off white head, very clear dark golden yellow color, splotching lacing, nice carbonation. S- The aroma is really nice, smooth, very refreshing, juicy fruity flavors (peach, grapefruit, citrus) piney hops, nice malt backbone. T- This is just a quality year round IPA, really balanced, solid fruity flavors, big grapefruit, pine, citrus, nice malt presence to balance it out, this is just a really balanced IPA. M- Medium/light mouth feel, well carbonated, really smooth, extremely easy drinkability. O- This is the craft beer that started it all for me; I’ve had this so many times and have always forgotten to review it, just a quality beer that I will always fall back on, always reliable.

Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Very piney and fruity nose that draws you in. Medium bodied, with a perfect balance of malt and bitterness. A great light IPA that I consider a nice session beer.

Almost always this is a great IPA. Tremendous aroma and initial taste. On occasion it has seemed bitter and with an after taste, but usually a very solid IPA.

Lovely IPA. Current favorite for this hop head. Well balanced hops - citrusy with a bitter finish. Simply a joy to drink.

Fantastic beer. A wonderfully crafted, gold-orange pour with dense, white head and some lacing. Finishes dry, with the help of a grapefruit citrus hop profile.

12oz. This is one of the best beers I’ve ever drank without a doubt. Pours a dark gold with a nice head. The aroma of this brew is off the chain and I want to just stick my nose in the bottle after opening it and inhale for hours. The hops are out of control, but not too overpowering. Awesome.

May be my favorite IPA, has a great hop/floral aroma, very thick head that stays throughout, pretty complex but great tasting brew
