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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2009 Poured from bottle into glass. Small white head with pine or floral aroma. First impression was dry, with a pine taste. There was citrus taste but not as much hops as expected. Overall good IPA.

Not a bad IPA at all. A little harsh at first, but once you’ve got one in you the next go down easy. If you enjoy this try Stone IPA or Founders Centennial IPA. Both are much better than 2<3

Very floral aroma, with some citrus. Nicely bitter, however lacking in body.

This ale poured a clear yellow colour with a creamy, off white head. To the nose there are scents of bread, grain, dough, hopps, juniper, spruce and butter??? First taste is smooth as silk with a nice creamy mouthfeel. By the smell I figured a hopp-heads dream but not so. Flavours of hopps, citrus, grass and butter. Finish is slightly bitter with hopps lingering through the palate.
