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.

This is a well-made right in the Middle IPA between being over hoppy and to malty. A clean nice aftertaste left on the palate very smooth and easy to drink. I would drink it again poured from a bottle. Big Mike’s Brevard NC

eRock_2013 (399) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Enjoyed this reputable IPA with a fine view and a cool summer breeze. From the bottle, poured a hazy yellow-orange color, seems to be exceptionally hazy for an IPA, with lots of lacing and foam, which thins to slight white head. Aroma is a delicious variety of malty grain and floral citrus hops, the sweet malt and juicy hops combine to form notes of sweet orange. Flavor is a full-bodied malty smoothness with a solid pacific resin and citrus hoppy bitterness, quite the sensory combination. Finishes with a warm caramel malty accented bitterness, definitely memorable if not quite as stellar as its high reviews suggest. Definitely delicious overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gluepot (407) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016
Lots of points for balance, but (I can’t believe I am saying this) nothing striking me as special here. The nose features juicy citrus hops, a touch of dankness and mild malts. Undertated though. The taste profile follows from the nose with mild fruity hops, classic soft malts, a smooth body and a nice dry finish.

Countbeer (6083) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016
Can: Served in a shaker: Creamy head. Cloudy yellow. Aromas of creamy hop fruits, some floral tones, clear hop tones... Taste more like a DIPA than an IPA. Good bitter, some hop tones, herbal and floral, light dry, bit creamy... Aftertaste is grassy, hoppy, bitter, dry... Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Expected more but surely decent.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2016 Pours a hazy yellow with minimal head. Smells of resin, pine, apricot and a biscuity malt. Taste is grapefruit, pine, biscuit, and caramel. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated, and a bitter finish. Very nice, well balanced, extremely drinkable.

Merci à Simon pour celle çi! Un nez qui se rapproche des IPAs anglaises. Mais, en portant un peu plus attention, on se rend compte que le côté fruité typiquement américain se pointe le nez. Le résultat est une IPA assez balancée. Peut-être un peu trop sucrée par contre (ici encore "à la mode" des IPA anglaises), mais toutefois fort goûteuse. La lourdeur de l’alcool se fait légèrement sentir mais est au bout du compte bien contenue. Est-ce les houblons utilisés (on semble parler de Centennial dans les critiques précédantes) qui ne sont pas ma tasse de thé? Je ne saurais dire, mais il manque un petit quelque chose pour venir gagner mon coeur. C’est un peu trop lourd, trop sucré.

thirstyrabbit (1720) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle. Pale clear orange body, medium head. Citric/resiny aroma with floral hints. Smooth taste of citrus and piney Centennial hops. Good balance, very refreshing. I love IPAs that are made with Centennial hops and this one’s a very good showcase of this hop.

HighlanderOne (1223) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2016
On tap at tipsy barrel. Nice malt hop aroma. Cloudy orange gold with lacing tan head. Piney, citrus and floral hops dominate with a good sweet slightly toasted malt back. Spice notes. Full flavored with great balance. Outstanding.

TorbenJensen (1452) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2016
It has extremely beautiful white and creamy foam and aroma of pine needles and grapefruit. The taste has a little malt sweetness in the form of caramel and sweetness keeps reasonable before the hops sneak into the mouth and contributes with pine needles, grapefruit, mango and orange peel. The finish is dry and lasts long.
