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.

Nothing more to say about this beer than a really, really good IPA. Really good. Itís one of my favorites. Great malt backbone with the perfect balance of hops.

This is a beautifully balance IPA with tons of citrus hop flavor and the perfect amount of residual malt character. The day they distribute to Southern California will be a good day.

Poured with a thin white head, decent lacing, over a hazy yellow-amber body. Aroma is floral and earthy hops over a crackerlike malt backbone. Flavor is a fantastic balance of earthy hops and crackerlike malt, with a lingering earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Body is medium-plus, with a velvety soft carbonation. Alcohol is exceptionally well-hidden. Easily one of my favorita American Pale Ales.

Super smooth with pine and citrus notes, a very balanced safe IPA that I reach for when having one heart just isnít enough.

This is one of my all around favorite IPAs, pours a nice dark gold with a white head. Smells floral, citrusy and piny. This ipa tastes amazing, perfectly balanced in my opinion. Looking forward to this being in New York State any day now, been waiting for the day for a while and will be very happy to be enjoying this ipa year round.

Very good beer from a very good home brewery here in Michigan. This seems like their flagship beer and is truly one of their most known even though it doesn't make the top 50. If you like IPAs, give this one a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No mincing words here, if you are in the mood for an IPA, this is the beer you want. Good body and mouthfeel. They did not forget about the malt bill like some IPAís. The hop finish is prominent, but somehow never unbalanced or harsh. Most IPAís (and Iím a big fan) have moments where the finish gets to be too much of a one note songÖ that has never happened with this beer. For me, this is the yardstick other IPSís are judged by.

As someone who isnít usually a fan of IPAs, I had a feeling I wouldnít like this beer very much. Itís hard to describe the taste as anything other than hoppy and bitter. For someone who does like IPAs, I think this is a great choice, but for someone who doesnít, I would look elsewhere

This is the beer that's perfect for literally ALL occasions! Pours a wonderful dark amber color with a nice head. Smell is piney and the taste is to me what a great American IPA should be! Currently my favorite beer in my top beers list ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

it kind of tastes like a mix between fruity pebbles with a little bit of cocoa pebbles mixed, the key is the hops. Quality, quality brew.
