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.

Batch # 7094. Light brown in color. Aroma was very floral, and somewhat fruity. Big time hops, and somewhat bitter. Iím not an IPA fan, but itís one of the better ones Iíve had.

12 oz bottle courtesy of gputty. Hazy, dirty yellow pour with a white head. Mostly floral nose, some grapefruit notes. Smooth, medium bitter. Nice, but I donít get the hype.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 20, 2006
12 oz bottle. Hazy orange color with thin white head that left a bit of lace on the glass. Distinct vegetal, floral hop aroma. The hops come out again in the flavor, of course, and are accompanied by an adequate, but marginalized malty backbone. Nice and bitter on the tongue.

DirtyMartini (194) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 30, 2007
pours a nice golden color with a small white head that lingers. aroma is of citrus and piney hops with some sweetness. flavor mirrors the aroma, with the floral hops hitting you first, with a piney/citrusy hop finish and some caramel sweetness. ultimately a pretty simple straight forward beer...a solid example of an IPA

A wonderful aroma of freshness and sweetness. There is a watered down flavor that hampers the beer at the end.. overall this is a good beer..

Had on draft at local bar. Poured a cloudy amber color...Smelled like grapefruit. I am not a fan of IPAís but found this one quite drinkable. Taste was citrus, malts, and flowers...Decent.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2008 Pours a hazy copper color with monstrous lacing, carbonation and head. Aroma is very hoppy. Taste is hoppy as well but it finishes really smooth with little aftertaste which is surprising for an IPA. Good brew!

BeerCommonSewr (67) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2007
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
