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.

Had this beer on tap at Fat Katz. Strong hops were balanced by a nice sweet malt. Easy to drink and a not too heavy mouthfeel with a good finish. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pour was a copper color and pretty clear. Aroma hits you with citrus, floral, and mixed in sweet malts. Taste is very citrus hop forward with floral hops and caramel malts taking a back seat. I like this beer, but I always get a kind of lemon dawn soapy taste as well. Nothing terrible, might just be me, but Iíve always gotten that whether draft, bottle, or can.

Probably one of the best IPA I've ever tasted. Perfect balance between hops and malt. It's very smooth ... I could drink it non-stop forever :).

Aroma is of citrus and strong caramel malts. Flavor is very citrus with a perfect mesh with the caramel malts that makes this very smooth and drinkable with a slight lingering bitter finish.

This is the best IPA Iíve had. I never tried any of the world famous big names, but I didnít have to order it or wait in line. The hops balance withe the nice malty flavor. If there is better, someone send me one.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker at home. This is one of my favorite "go to" IPAs that is consistently good. A healthy head (about two fingers) gives way to a floral hop aroma with traces of tropical fruit. While the hops are the real star in this beer, it has enough malt backbone to keep it from being hop juice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No overly assertive hop character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice fresh bottle. canít believe iíve never rated this. Pours light golden into a IPA glass with a nice dense soft lasting head and great lace. Aroma is nice crisp coming through nice lemon zest, spice, light tropical and floral bouquet. Flavor is not ripe light orange juice, more fresh grain, growing bitterness and a spicy end. Feel is lively, full, and light. Within the context of its availability itís hard to say this is anything but awesome.

Best IPA Iíve ever had. If this doesnít deserve a 5, no beer does. Perfection.
