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 was a fine beer. Aroma was fruity. The taste was smooth and the hop taste was of mild hops and creamy malts. Slightly thin with a mellow finish.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 pours with a medium head, with an aroma of apricots and floral hoppiness. The taste is quite the same. It is a great beer on tap, but I couldnt quite imagine drinking more than 2 of them.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2007 Orange body with medium eggshell-white head collapsing to a thin layer. Really nice hop oil citric aroma, almost floral. Lemony citric hop flavor. Effective cascade and pale malt combination I think. Moderate bitterness, very slightly overcarbonated in my opinion. Definitely something a little fishy in the taste... Overall, a quite solid IPA, but maybe a little tame by today’s standards to be truly great...

Pours a hazy golden with a thick white foamy head. Aroma of hops and hops and hops and more hops. Tastes of...hops. slight bitter finish.

Large head. Aroma is rich with spice and hops, but you can tell it is also just slightly thin/watery. A little too light for my taste in the finish, just a little too much water, a touch too long of a finish, especially with this much hop bitter at the end. I just think if it has that much in the way of hops, the finish should be a little quicker/dryer. Overall a good beer, but I was just a little disappointed in the aroma/finish department.

12 oz bottle- Door County. Cloudy orange & fluffy head. A blast of floral aroma hits you right away. First taste was very dry, with strong hops present throughout. Nice carbonation- a lot of bite to this beer. I like the other reviewers’ use of "grapefruit" in describing the taste- quite accurate. Really nice beer.

Citus hoppy aroma and color is a cloudy copper. Initially I didn’t think there was enough hops. The more I drank, the hops became more noticeable. They leave a nice lingering aftertaste. But for IPAs I feel like the hops should smack you in the face while still being balanced. The beer was balanced but without the smack in the face.

Thanks emacgee. Pretty good brew. Great floral hop aroma. Pours a nice yellow amber color with fluffy off-white head. Taste isn’t nearly as hoppy as aroma, but it has a nice malt balance to it. Finish is very bitter and crisp.
