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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2009 Grapefruit, grass with mild sweet malt aroma. Golden-amber, clear, with lasting-frothy off-white head. Grapefruit, floral, biscuit and caramel flavour notes. Refreshing, dry, with medium bitter finish.

bottle thanks to kosko20. nice light amber color with a white head that dissipates into floaties. very easy on the palate on the palate with a very smooth hop flavor that is quite nice.

Had out of the bottle. Creamy head that sticks around. Quite honestly the best IPA I’ve had yet

Sweet citrus notes: lemon, orange, grapefruit. Some sugar cookie, toast, and flowers. Body is fairly full for an IPA. End is dry, with light alcohol aftertaste.
