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.

golden copper with white head. Big dry-hopped nose of fresh centennials? Piney/citrus aroma. Hops are definitely the focus here being very assertive, but somehow it balances well with the malt. Nice dry-hopped IPA

(12 oz bottle, obtained in trades with Goblincat and hopsrus, thanks Mike and John!) The nose is lightly malty, but fairly bready, slightly sour and mildy hoppy. But I think the flavor is a bit of a let down after smelling the inviting aroma. This is a pretty light flavored IPA, enjoyable, delicate, but not a big IPA. A light, sweet, bready maltiness leads the way, with some fruitiness and moderately bitter hops for good balance. The claim of "enormous hop additions" seems a bit self inflated if you ask me. Medium bodied. Not exactly clean and crisp because the level of hops isnít all that big. Golden orange color and fairly cloudy. Pours a large, whitish head that is very bubble -- large bubbles, in fact -- and forms craters as it falls away. Dense, intricate lacing is left on the glass.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 a very cloudy yellowish orange body (great appearance); much carbonation; hoppy notes for both the aroma and flavor, with subtle malts...to the harvest ale i had at founders ales; crisp palate; a perfect hop/malt juxtaposition

Copper color with a decent head that lasts. Aroma is citrusy with some pine with that typiclal centennial hop aroma. Slight light crystal malt aroma as well. Tastes a little light for a great IPA, but this is still pretty good. Moderately hoppy and bitter with just enough light malts to make it balanced. Pretty good but I was slightly let down- not enough body or hops for me.

pours a nice orange color with an ample white head, looks appealing but nothing extraordinary. Nice hoppy aroma and a very hoppy flavor. Very piney bitter flavor, definately a solid IPA not my favorite, but certainly worthy of its reputation

marcus (7563) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 9, 2005
On tap at the Clarkston Union. This light amber ale poured with a sparse white head, eliciting a very hoppy, floral aroma. The flavor, too, was quite hoppy and smooth with a carbonated mouthfeel. This is a very balance and tasty brew that goes well with most food.

Sampling from a 2 year old cellared bottle and a fresh one side by side. The hops in the fresh bottle are bracing, too much for my liking personally. However the aged two hearted reveals true craftsmanship, with a excellent balance of malt and hops. Notes of butterscotch and dried cherries along with the grapefruit and pine that is so overwhelming in the younger version. Iíd drink the two year old anytime, I find the young a bit too brash for my palate.

First thing to greet me in the aroma was pine, but it is followed by something soft and pleasing that Iím having trouble identifying (the first thing that comes to mind with it is freshly baked yellow cake...other than that I canít identify it). Flavor is a woodsy pine that lasts throughout and into the long finish. Maybe a bit of alcohol too.
