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.

This is the way that an American IPA should be. Has a great hoppy taste, almost a candied citrus fruit taste. The head is a creamy chewy white. The nearly perfect American IPA!

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 12oz. bottle, slightly hazy gold/orange with a foamy white head of large bubbles that lasts. Lots of dense lacing. Intense floral hop aroma, grapefruit, pine. Flavor matches aroma, could use a bit more malt flavor. Mouthfeel is watery and moderately carbonated. Finishes with pine, citrus and hops. Somewhat acidic.

Smells floral.. hoppy... like a good IPA should... almost of pine. Beautiful light amber coloring... Creamy head with pretty lacing. POW! The bitterness hits you right in the jaw. Bitter in the front and in the back. Too bitter for my tastes, but perfectly characteristic of the style. I am rating this higher than I like it, mostly because I know what a good IPA should taste like, and this is it.

If you like it bitter, you’ll love this one. For me, though, the bitterness was just a little overpowering, to the point I couldn’t detect much maltiness. Nice finish and clean aftertaste of high-quality hops, but I couln’t drink more than a couple of these at a time

A floral, citrusy extravaganza. The malt is there, but the hops shine through. Very drinkable, very crisp and very dry. A winner!

Pours a golden amber. Citrusy nose. Excellent disbursement of hops, malt, and citrus. My favorite IPA to date.
