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.

Pours light orange with a thick foamy white head; excellent head retention. Floral hops aroma, with some fruitiness mixed in there. Taste is hop-first bitterness that is very well balanced with some fruity undertones. Similar in a sense to Ballast Point Sculpin which I felt was more malt forward with some brilliant hoppy undertones. This could become my go-to IPA. Just fantastic.

12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford City. Appearance: 2 finger slightly off=-white head, good lacing, golden color, clear. Aroma: thick caramel and biscuits, pine and grapefruit, heavy floral. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter lasting finish, slightly dry finish, sticky texture. Taste: full sweet malty caramel into a nice balance of floral, pine, and grapefruit hops that carry the taste into a very smooth bitterness that lasts, but does not overstay. Balance is phenomenal, very solid beer. Very well rounded, but simple. Perhaps the mold for the style.

Strong in every aspect that a beer should be. Great clarity and depth of color. Fantastic taste and smooth finish. Nothing else to say. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours golden, very clear, thin off white head, decent retention. Citrusy, pine resin on the nose some tropical fruits (pineapple, passion). Light to medium malt body, flavor poems with the tropical fruits, lightly smacks you with very citrusy hops, very well balanced, medium finish.

Cracked this mini-keg this afternoon and just now enjoying the first glass. Pours a medium orange-amber with light amber head floating above. Smells great and tastes better. Smooth and very well balanced. Good to the last drop. The first pour was a bit foamy but settling down nicely on subsequent draws. One of the few beers I have had that tastes as good on the fourth glass as the first. Now noticing hints of hops, beer and alcohol, with a pronounced wetness in the mouthfeel. This is a beer with serious legs - still smooth and the mini-keg has begun to float in the ice-water bucket. Not sure there is a better way to spend $28...oh gotta go, the wife’s home!

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 I’ve 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.
