Brewed with all Michigan-grown Cascade and Chinook hops this Extra Pale Ale is light enough for a session but loaded with aroma and flavor.

Canít explain why I like this so much better than the first poster, but to each our own. Draft taster at Standard Market today. Clear golden yellow under a stiff head. Smell has basically piny hop, a bit of floral note as well. Taste builds on the pine hoppiness adding a note of grapefruit and some big bitterness that still works well with the lighter malt profile. Welcome as a sessionable hop bomb.

Carries a decent initial aroma followed by a weak, thin bodied disappointing beer. It has a bitterness to it but has very few facets of interests. It got a hop aroma burst, a bitter hop taste, no body and they play pretty poorly together. Least favorite of the few buckledown beers. Belt and suspenders is an awesome IPA and fiddlesticks is a great belgian IPA so it shocked me that this feel so flat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery, and shaker served showing a clear, golden hue, with good persistence to the fluffy, off white layer of head foam, and doily-like cling to the lacing. The nose was expressive grapefruit, some tangerine/mandarin sweetness, and a touch of resinous pine. Maybe just a little less than medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste incorporated a moderate but lingering citrusy & rind-like bitterness that was tempered just enough to eliminate any bite by a light malt content, and finished crisp & clean. A very drinkable APA.

Aroma is very light pine, mild hop resin and white bread. The flavor is grapefruit, light citrus/fruit, mild/hops and a bitter/tart finish.

Not much going on here. Slightly hoppy and really nothing else for flavor. Slightly hoppy and slight bitter finish. Smells like bananas. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head.

Iíd probably call this one a session IPA in these troubled times. Itís very aromatically hoppy, light and not too bitter--in other words, itís great. The closest thing to a negative point about this is the appearance. Itís a nice brilliantly clear golden color but the head is short lived and foamy. Otherwise, Iíd call this pretty much fantastic. Itís one of those beers where the aroma hits you hard right as soon as you pop the top--big, bright citrus and pine needles all over the place. This is dry, crisp and firmly bitter. It gets a bit lemony once you taste it and overall just has a super fresh hop character to it. I am a sucker for lighter, flavorful beers and if you are too, check this out. Itís a really great beer from top to bottom.

Tap at the brewery. Pours golden with a small white aroma is almost nonexistent. Taste is of wheat and not much else. Mouthfeel was watery. The body was very light, like water. That was a big disappointment. It was just very bland and watery. Maybe the keg is off??
