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.

12 oz. bottle Aroma:Sweet malty scent with spicy hops underneath Appearance:Hazy bronze with a smallish head that lingers and laces well nonetheless. I normally donít do this but I am going to have to take a point here for the artwork on the label. A quality beer like this deserves something a little more professional looking instead of like something I printed off my home PC. Now if this was the look they were going for than bravo. Flavor:Hoppy makes me happy nicely balanced with the sweet malts Palate:Bitter hops linger quite well with alcohol present but not overbearing by any means Overall:Better than I expected honestly. I donít think it is worthy of the 4s I am seeing but still I did like this beer a lot and it would be great for session drinking.

Fightfire4beer (132) - Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Tap. cloudy orange color with a thick off white head. Sweet floral aroma. Slight citrus kick. A little swseet with a hoppy bitter finish. Not as bitter as I expected it to be. This beer is well rounded and has more going on than just that hoppy bite one might expect from an IPA. B

This is one damn fine IPA. Lacey white head stuck to the glass until the last swallow. Remarkably crisp and refreshing. I usually donít go ga-ga over this style of beer, but this is one worth remembering. A wicked summer session beer. Cheers.

brew4fun (209) - West Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2008
12oz. bottle. Served in bottle. Swirling the bottle produces a creamy non-persistent head. Aroma of toasted malt, floral hops and a touch of orange. Taste is more of the same, yet I think a bit light on the hops for an IPA. Silky smooth light-medium body, nicely bitter, very drinkable.

bhops (427) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle thanks to mar. Nice golden pour, not too much head. Aroma of honey, hops and esters. Flavor is by in a flash, all hops, not much of a malt balance. Finish is dry and bitter, but this is a smooth drinking IPA with hint of creaminess. Nice label and hemingway reference... good IPA but I think I was expecting a little more based on the hype. Still a good beer though.

bottle. sweet lemony aroma. was a little too bitter for my tastes, but worth trying again.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Copper color with a thick shaving cream head. Nice piney hop bitterness swats at the nose. Flavor is crisp and characterized by a strong bitterness, probably healthy doses of Chinook. Some floral notes, but mostly a bitter monster. A tasty, bitter IPA brew.

Butters (3686) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with suspended particulate and good offwhite head and lacing. Nose of clean floral and citrus hops. Flavor has a balanced malty component at first, but is actually quite unbalanced, with a decided hop bitterness finishes this strong. Resiny hops affect the mouthfeel. Good for style. But not exactly what I look for in an IPA

canary dog (649) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - FEB 28, 2009
12 oz. bottle at Union Jack, Arlington VA. Dark and hazy. Taste is very sharp. The hops are very citrusy, and almost pine-like in its sharpness. Overall, not bad. I appreciate the bold flavors of this IPA although I would prefer a bit more bitterness to go along with the high citrusy-pine cone notes.

Pours a cloudy golden-orange color. Medium head. Aroma is lemon pineapple with slight alcohol. Taste is definitely citrus with malt finishing. Good aftertaste. A nice dry hoppy IPA. Good.
