Had a taste on tap at Blue Tractor in Ann Arbor. Solid, but oddly flavored. Kinda corny?

Focuses on the bitter without much complexity. Decent beer but somewhat run of the mill ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, floral hops, caramel malt. Flavor of citrus, light hop oils, light fruits, with a spicy bitter finish. Excellent ipa. 7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5)

Tap @ Blue Tractor. Hazy, orangish appearance with an off white head. Mild, earthy, orange citrusy aroma. Fairly bitter, earthy, orange, grapefruit citrusy hoppy flavor. Not bad.

flatmatt (1080) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2011
On tap at the brewery as part of a six-beer sampler. This pours a clear gold amber with a white head. Aroma is quite nice with lots of citrus. Flavor is less bold, with citrus, pine, grassy hops, biscuit, and a moderate bitterness. A little bit of a disappointment.

Sample at brewpub
Saving the two IPAs for last I found myself greeted by acceptable releases that were not remarkable or particularly memorable. On one hand there weren’t any glaring flaws. On the other it just sort of was. This beer had little presence.

Aroma / Appearance - Trace carbonation sparkled in the bottom as the orange semi-opaque body sat idly. Lemon pledge freshly sprayed onto a cleaning rag melded with crisp hops which were smooth but not powerful.

Flavor / Palate - The taste of bittersweet waxed tile washed across the tongue. It had some character and depth but ultimately was just what you would expect from a brewpub IPA. In fact I wound up only drinking about half before moving on to the final sample hoping it was an improvement.

Not as interesting as the Punky’s Monkey, but very malts for the style. Less hoppy than expected. Very drinkable.

Drank as part of a sampler...This pours a copper color, with a light tan head. The aroma and taste are ok, light malt, just light in general. There is almost a total lack of hops, this is not an ipa or a pale but a decently drinkable beer. I’d try this just for the heck of it, but nothing special.

On tap at the Blue Tractor Brew Pub. Poured a medium orange color with a small sized off white. Aromas of citrus and some pine. Oranges. Tastes of citrus, pine and some caramel. Grapefruit.
