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.

First beer during RBSG 2010. This was just before walking to Founders. On tap at the hotel. Drank side by side with my good buddy savvy1982. My pint had a nice orangy amber brew with an good sized off white fluffy head sitting in it for me to slam back... but early pacing made me look like a pussy as Kyle dropped back 2 and could have drank a third in the time I put back one. Great flavour in this thing - no let down for the hype. Soft and very creamy on the way down. Some light spice... man! is this a unique taste! Spearmint, caramel, cookies, apricot, grapefruit and thick herbal qualities. Soft orange aroma with candy, more fruits... tropicalish, resiny hops, caramel... all goodness. On the gassy side. A great beer to sit back with my new drinking partner for the week.

Golden orange pour with large frothy head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and lychee fruit. Taste is grapefruit, honey and a nice hoppy finish that is just right and not to harsh. Good beer.

weihenweizen (3130) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2011
UPDATED: APR 24, 2012 Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker pours clear deep golden with one and a half inch white head. Medium carbonation, some lacing, and medium body. Taste is spicy floral grapefruit and some piny hop bitterness. So smooth and balanced for an IPA and very little bite. Best IPA I have had, but still not one of my favorite styles.

Just didn’t live up to the hype. Seems slightly over rated. It certainly is a great beer, but I just expected something more.

bookman10 (946) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Pours a rather hazy, golden yellow. Mid-sized head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Floral, hoppy aromas. Nice grapefruit/citrus hop flavors with a smooth bitterness. A great beer to drink with food.

Dirty hazy ruddy gold color with some microscopic "floaties." Full persistent white head and plenty of lace. From the start there is a balanced combination of citrus caramel wheat and mild pine hops. Plenty of taste and plenty of body. The only weakness would be that once the flavor (as good as it is) begins, there is no change from beginning to finish. Excellent and extravagent one-note brew.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 Very citrus forward and only a mild bitterness. One of the classic American IPAs. Excellent

Little to no head, typical IPA color, little if any lacing. Smell is of malt, biscuit, and fruit sweetness. Nothing fancy but smells nice. The sweetness hits you up front, almost a pineapple flavor. An earthly hop kick follows, with a slight malt presence as it fades away. Light carbonation, nothing really sticks with you. Solid IPA, wish I knew about this a while ago. Could drink these like water.
