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.

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle. Outstanding IPA. Rich, dark-amber pour with a firm, off-white head. Aroma of pine and floral hops. Flavor has huge bitterness and yet still strikes the drinker as well-balanced, what with the hearty doses of malts. Mildly resiny mouthfeel and a crisp, sticky, lip-smacking finish.

Cloudy yellow/orange body with eggshell white head. Aroma is solid hoppy grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, but balanced with solid malt backbone. Chewy.

brokensail (11600) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: It pours a hazy burnt orange color with a small white head. Some sticky looking lacing as I drink this one. S: The aroma really blew me away. Loads of citrus hop aroma, sweet tropical fruits, and not much malt--very nice. T: The taste is very similar to the aroma. A great grapefruit and orange flavor, along with sweet pineapple. The finish is nice and piney, giving a bitterness to balance out the fruit. M: The beer is medium bodied and has moderate carbonation. D: I can see why people go nuts over this beer. Such a solid IPA, much more similar to the California IPAs than most other Midwest and East Coast offerings.

bhensonb (11531) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle from D&J Liquor in St. Louis, MO. Hazy amber color with a vigorous beige head. Nice aroma of resin and floral hop. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is very hoppy, piney with a hint of grapefruit. Finishes smooth and tasty. There’s enough malt to give the illusion of balance. Why can’t we get this in California?

Bottle. [Thanks to my Secret Santa]
Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a smallish bubbly/creamy white head. Good lacing. Aroma is brilliant, lots of hops. Lemons, grapefruit, pine, lavender, flowers and a little crystal-maltiness behind it. Low carbonation. Flavour is mildly bitter at first, then expands with a well-balanced malty base of sweetness, then finishes medium dry with a good powerful hop addition. Grapefruit hops are most apparent, so are lemony and grassy hops.
