COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPAís, in contrast the palate is more crisp and dry. If you consider yourself a "hop-head" you owe it to yourself to grab this beer.

Both bottle and on tap. This is a consistently brewed and highly drinkable IPA. The hops are predominant but it is well balanced. This beer makes it worth living in Marshall, Michigan!!

Bottle. Watch your pour - plenty of yeast in the bottle. Sweet, citrus-hoppy aroma: mandarin orange and cookie dough with a zippy lime essence to balance it out. This beerís malt sweetness level is great for the style. Itís dry enough to let the hops take center stage but not too dry where itís unbalanced and no mouthfeel. The malting is your basic pale with a touch of crystal while the hops of of the grapefruit rind zest variety. Resinous finish. A great IPA to keep in the fridge.

Hangover (1100) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Murky dark orange pour with a quickly receding head. Citrus, pine and fruity aroma. Nice hoppy taste. More citrus than anything else, but there is also a very light toastiness from the malt, which is as light as advertised. Very pleasant to drink. Not so much a hop bomb, just an enjoyable hoppy experience without exceedingly strong resinous aftertaste. This take on an IPA is very appealing to me. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Pour is a light golden color, slightly cloudy, with a nice sized off white head that hangs on. Aroma is typica IPA, grapefruit, pine, floral. Taste is more of the same grapefruit, pine, floral. Palate is crisp, light to medium bodied, refreshing. Very good.

Next to Two Hearted, this is one of the best IPAís Ive had. Crisp wtih floral and piney hops. Gotta love bottle conditioning. Lots of sediment and dark murkiness. I love it!

Thanks Secret Santa. Great pine and floral aroma. Hazy copper body with decent head. Crisp dry citrus grapefruit flavor. Like the syupy one bettter but this was a good beer after an eight hour shift. Cool and crisp on the palate with some dryness but nothing a glass of water for hydrayion canít heal. Thanks.

12 oz bottle. Hazy apricot leaves a big melted marshmallow with spotty lace. Pine, orange blossum and caramel. Taste is malt up front then marmalade. Light spicy drying. Finally a little anise and grapefruit.

holdenn (2100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2006
12 oz bottle pours amber orange with a tan head. Piney sweet citrus aromas with sweet carmel citrus and pine flavors. Lacking that hearty bitterness and anything else to make it stand out among other ipas.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2006
12 ounce bottle. Pours rich amber orange with a light tan colored head. Heavy sticky pine and peach nectar aromas. Well balanced malt sweetness with the grapefruit and pine resin. Sticky full palate, with a rush of bubbles. Really a pretty nice beer.

From a 12 oz. long neck bottle with no freshness date. Poured a cloudy, with floaties, burnt orange with a foamy, creamy off-white head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing. Aromas of rudy grapefruit, a bit zesty as well, floral with a light leafiness, and grainy, sweet malts. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, slick, creamy smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant hop taste, an earthy spiciness, a soft, sweet tropical fruitiness, grainy with a touch of caramelized maltiness, and a dry hoppy and grainy finish, a slightly wood bark, earthy bitterness lingering in the palate. A very drinkable IPA from Dark Horse, I wish their brews were available in Illinois.
