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.

Koelschtrinker (11062) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Stark hopfiger, fast schon beißender Geruch nach typisch amerikanischem Aromahopfen. Voluminöser, wenn auch nicht ganz so stark wie erwarteter Antrunk mit deutlichen Bitternoten. Diese werden im Mittelteil wieder in den Hintergrund gedrängt, der Hopfen erlange abermals, wenn auch deutlich wässriger, den Hauptstatus. Der Hopfen word dann milder, ohne aber an Fülle zu verlieren. Die Gesamtintensität wird geringer, der Hopfen bleibt führend. Semiger Ausklang mit deutlichem Hopfen, ferner einigen dumpfen Bitternoten. 12/11/11/12/11/11

Appearance: hazy orange, fine beige head, heavy lace
Aroma: the definitive huge sweet grapefruit aroma, fruity orange, lots of crystal sweetness balanced by citrus goodness

Flavor: sweet fruity orange flavor like when you first break open an orange and dive in face first, light balancing bitterness keeps the sweetness in control without detracting from the fruity goodness

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
Thank you Yngwie for sharing this great beer! It has been on my wish-list, and I’m not disappointed! It’s warm orange with a nice head and a fruity, hoppy aroma with loads of citrus, tangerine being dominant. The flavour is nice, harmonic and delicious with lots of fruit/citrus, again tangerine is the most dominant. It also has nice caramel notes that balances the bitterness nicely. It’s very charming and harmonic - yummi!!!! 2444

BeerandBlues2 (10099) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2006
12-oz. bottle, Batch 7237 from tjthresh. Pours a slightly cloudy bronze, brass with a medium frothy white head, diminishes somewhat to a patchy film, some lacing. Aroma is very fragrant floral and citrus hops, perfumey, caramel malt (meal, grain, straw), slightly toasted, yeast (dough). Moderately bitter and medium acidity, tart hop rind, pine juice, malty balanced flavor with a hint of oranges. Medium bodied, fizzy and dry palate.

Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Bottle at Brauhaus Schmitz, Philly - 21/05/12. Clear golden orange with a decent white head and plenty of lacing. Sweet malt nose not the hop burst I was expecting although there are piney hop notes at the end. As per nose caramel malt at the fore, piney hops at the rear. Medium bodied and carbonation, smooth dry finish. Original rate 7 - 4 - 8 - 5 - 16 = 4.0. -------&# 03/11/12 at Kasey’s Tavern, Chicago on tap. Clear mid amber with a good off white head. Decent lacing follows. Nose comprises sweet malts, pine, hops, bitter tropical fruits and some mineral tones. Tastes of bitter tropical fruits, pine, hops, minerals. Medium bodied woth fine carbonation leading to a bitter finish, great IPA. Came out as the same score as the original review with taste +1 and palate -1.
