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.

not too loud at the beginning and quiet enough at the end. i think it was a nice balance as i kind of usually fear / love the thrillingly zesty first sip of IPA. this one hung in there the whole way without running me over like a circus bus. awesome job!

One of my favorite beers. On tap @ Caliente. Smooth with big floral/citrus hops. Bet you can’t drink just one!

Smells of dried hops, herbal, and apricot. Taste is florally, perfume and of saffron. Smooth and oily texture and pretty heavy body for the style. The finish lacks bite, so I’m guessing the bottle was a bit old?

Good beer. I’ve had on tap and in bottle. It may have been the night, but I liked the tap better. Beer is very hoppy, and maybe a little too citrusy, but I liked it just the same. I think I like DFH 90 minute IPA a little better, but very similar beers.

Poured a golden orange color with a very thin head. Head retention was minimal and patchy. Aroma was not as strong as expected but good hints of citrus were present. Flavor was commanding with a great strong hoppy finish. Clean, keeps you wanting more...

The apperance was wonderful. It is a nice burnt or orange straw color. It was clear till I swirled in the dregs from the bottle. The head is very nice. It is a nice creamy head that was huge and stucke to my glass like nothing else. The smell was hops all the way, nothing but hops. Very floral. The taste was very disappointing. It had hops but it was very thin and almost watery. There is very little malt in this beer and it makes it lose it's body. Could be a lot better. Not a bad beer but not what I expected it to be.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 The best of the best; the creme de la creme; I get the pleasure of having cask conditioned 2H at a local pub; 2H in a bottle or on tap is amazing, but cask conditioned will blow your mind. With the CC you get much more of the true goodness - the flowery, citrusy taste will nicely coat your palate, without the typical hops explosion. I loved the beer before; now I am obsessed.
