It’s not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPA’s, 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.

Pretty decent brew. Poured with a nice head and some lace. Color is an amber on the dark side. Aroma is very hoppy with a little grapefruit and some muskiness, malty. Flavor is as described: on the dry side, hop bitter, very good carbonation. drinkable. Hoppy finish with almost no sweetness.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - APR 13, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 Quick rating at the brewery. Pineapple aromas with hints of honey and some bread. Golden yellow colors with a slightly opaque body and bubbly head. Good hoppy flavors with a rich mouthfeel and good duration. Pineapple is not that forward in the flavors. Somewhat sweet with malty balance to the hoppiness. Rich and Solid.

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2009
Wonderful beer that is astonishingly underrated. Nice hazy pour, with a nice citrus taste/smell. Very similar to the other MI IPAs, Centennial and Two Hearted. And almost as good. Highly recommended if you can get it fresh enough.

Bottle:Pours a cloudy copper with a medium off-white head this is mostly lasting. Has a citrusy grapefruit aroma and flavor with hints of pine. Finish is tarty and bitter. Very good!

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Light, bright citrus and pine aroma. Nice citrus and bitter flavor, if a bit watery. This actually makes it very drinkable. Not a lot of aftertaste. This is one that friends and family who generally don’t like well hoped beers could still appreciate this, so am rating it just a bit higher to remember to have some on hand.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 Bottle. Finally we have this beer in SW Ohio. I had this beer in ’04 at the brewery during a Michigan brewery tour, best beer of the trip. Pours darkish amber, nice head. Unfiltered cloudiness is beautiful to this homebrewer! Aroma of citrus and floral hops over a bready slight sweetness. Flavor begins grainy/bready/malty, but there is a hop bitterness that sort of sneaks in there, more than first realized. The hops are not as pronounced as many IPAs, but they are there along with some spiciness that really ties everything together. The mouthfeel is somewhat heavy, with the hop flavor lingering and a nice long finish. This could be a daily drinker/session beer for me. Draft at Sheffield’s. Much better than bottle. Almost glowing opaque orange color. More aroma and flavor, more of everything, mmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty strong of the citrus and pine hops with only a hint of caramel malts. Flavor is pretty much all hops, not much else underneath. Slightly bitter finish, but not what I thought it was going to be. Overall, not too bad.

12 oz bottle. Another beer in the rating adventure. Pours a hazy golden color with a finger high white head that is fairly full-bodied and stays for a while, with an immediate smell factor to it (the hops I believe). Smells of fresh hops, citrus, floral arrangement, and some pine. Very crisp smell. Tastes of hops, some pine, and a hint of floral. Very interesting flavor. Fairly smooth going down. Not my favorite IPA, but decent nonetheless.

Maddog (523) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Had in bottles. We finally get them in Dayton, OH at Belmont Party Supply. First had this beer at a SW Mich. Brew tour, and as it turned out, it was the best beer on the trip and this included Bell’s and New Holland. This IPA is dark amber, darker than most ipa’s and the taste profile is sweet, well balanced and finshes with a floral hop presence that ends a tad on the dry side. Not overly hopped, unfortunately, but still a very tasty, different IPA. Even better on draft.

Thin and hoppy, fair to midland. Needs more booze and hops. Etc. Etc. Etc. Etc.
