Had this beer on Tap at Blackrocks in Marquette. One of the best IPA's I have ever had. Pours a orangeish color with a white head that laces nicely down the glass. Very fruity taste and smell. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a decent head and aromas of papaya, lemon and a little mango. Flavor is a very nice mix of tropical and citrus fruit with a kind of dusty grain presence from the malt, which lends a little bit of flabbiness to the beer. That said, the nice hops presence helps the beer rise above the malt.

12oz can pours a hazy golden orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of fruity and and citrus resinous hops. With a lighter sweet fruity caramel backing. Clean cut and to the the point on the taste. Sweet caramel to an intense fruity resinous hop and finishing on an easy to swallow bitter note. Really nice!

574deadzone (984) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with a thick eggshell head that settles slowly and leaves some soapy, hanging lace. Nose involves some pine and floral notes, some sweet grain, some peach and mango, seems like centennial, some grapefruit and savory dankness. Fair sweet, much more bitter. Medium bodied, active, drying, with a juicy hoppy finish. Very tasty, hits all the marks, drinkable and classic.

Orange pour from a can in saugatuck mi. Delicious beer. Had low hopes and was crazy happy. Orange and tropical taste. Grapefruit and bitter. Deliciousness.

From the can in Easttown. Pours hazy medium amber with a creamy off white head that lingers well. Nose is citrus, floral, hoppy, light pines, and some citrusy juicy fruits. Flavor is similar. Light caramel malt presence mixed in there. Medium bitter finish. Really nice localish beer.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, no canning date. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/floral hops and light-moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of citrus/floral and moderate malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. All around good balance and complexity of bright citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Feels like an all around classic example of an American IPA, very enjoyable.
