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.

Bottle. This has a nice citrusy grapefruit aroma that I think would be better if fresher. It pours murky copper with a one finger white head. Average bitterness for an IPA and some nice grapefruit hops. Again I think it could be fresher. There is a little bit of that fart Hopdevil flavor. Has a pretty firm malt backbone.

a really spicy aroma. pretty standard appearance. i think this bottle might be old or slightly infected. maybe itís weird hops. but itís not a traditional hops aroma at all. kinda light. i donít like it

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2007 Bottle. Pours amber with a slight haze, and nice white head that goes all the way down the glass. Strong aroma of toffee and floral and citrus hops. Flavor is dominated by citrusy hops, with a sweet earthy malt backbone. Very bitter finish has a hint of orange, along with some pepperlike spiciness. And boy does that bite linger. Pretty solid aggressive IPA. Two Hearted is still my favorite Michigan IPA, but this would be a good backup. Underrated IMO.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Poured amber orange with a ver big off-white head. Big pine and citrus aroma. Flavor is loads of hops from start to finish. A definate hop-headís delight. Just barely enough malts to balance. Nice full mouthfeel too.

mamabeer (39) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle - Hazy apricot color with a nice size head that doesnít fade away too quickly. Aroma is a sweet fruity scent. Heavier than lots of IPAs. Flavor is a citrus laden bitterness with just enough malt to keep your mouth from puckering. I canít wait to try their double!

stoutlvr (52) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Pours amber-orange haze with lots of lacing. Excellent grapefruity taste. Feels thick to the lips when drinking it. Lots of sediment, a great beer anytime.

Thanks to Brewblackhole for this one.Pours a cloudy light amber with small particles floating in it.Wonderful floral hop aroma.Upon first sip,found a nice malt overtone with a great hop balance.A little thin on the body,but all in all a great IPA!

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2006
Thanks to brewblackhole for this IPA. Pours out a murky orange with minor white head. Wonderful flower hops and sweet necter. Taste of Sweet, hoppy, bitter and then diminishes at the end way to fast. Almost a water down IPA. After having a couple more sips, it gets better. I was realy impresed at the wonderful aroma, but after I tasted it, my tree trunk went crooked. If you know what I mean! Still an average IPA.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2006 Dark orange and murkey. Huge orange aroma. Ornange flavor, with pine and other citrus. Full body. Delicious. This is a great IPA. I think this uses Amarillo hops. Way under-rated. Edit - I bought a 6 pack later and they were all flat. Major points deducted for quality control.
