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.

incredibly strong hop bouquet yet not brutally bitter. an excellent IPA, maybe the best I’ve had. orange color, off white abundant head that is fizzy rather than heavy or creamy (yet remains a surprisingly long time for such a head) and releases abundant hop.

Wellestone (33) - Andover, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Gorgeous thick-foamed big-bubble head, slow carbonation, perfect hazy amber color. no lace to speak of. Flowery aroma overpowers any residual citrus. Creamy mouthfeel, full-bodied. Some sweetness to semi-balance the strong bitterness. More bitterness than the 09 Hopslam because of less malts.

Deep gold with off white head. Aroma is spicy citrus and mango. Creamy body with pleasant bitterness. More tart citrus in the finish. One of my favorites. Even better on cask.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 A great everyday beer. This is the IPA I compare all others against and nothing has knocked it out of first place yet, not even my own homebrew. The hops the malt make my taste buds dance for joy. Thanks Larry

artvandelay (32) - Ames, Iowa, USA - MAY 31, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Bottle. Pours a cloudy yet vibrant amber with a frothy ,somewhat lasting, off-white head. Nose is mostly grapefruit with some corriandor, pine, and lemon rind. Taste is dominated by grapefruit, but is balanced with a hefty malt profile. Light to medium bodied. Mouthfeel is very smooth with a long bitter finish. I can’t say enough good things about this brew. I could drink this stuff all day and night!
