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.

HAzy orange pour with pillow like head mostly light colored. Well balanced plenty of hops to coincide with the malts. notable hints of citrus, pine, and caramel

12oz bottle, courtesy of Sephiroth. Thanks, Hans! Pours a hazy, golden-orange color; thin off-white head with decent retention at the edges; mixed-bubbled lacing. Solid amounts of orange bitterness, resiny, chewy hops, and candy sugar; generous, dripping hoppiness with a solid malt core in the background; very nice aroma; reminds me of Willimantic’s IPA hop character. Slightly more maltiness in the mouth than expected; medium-to-full mouthfeel: juicy oranges and tropical fruit hoppiness, citrus and earthy notes, and lots of candy sugar / fruity sweetness at the core; solid carbonation; solid hop character, just not quite the tongue-numbing zing the nose hints at. Lengthy finish: lasting orange bitterness, minerals, and candy sugar; some earthiness, and quite dry and nicely bitter at the end; some toasty malts once everything else subsides.

Very clean, very hoppy. In my opinion the best IPA from a Michigan brewery. Cloudy pour, hoppy aroma. Little carmel with citrus. Obviously not filtered, has a little "stick" to it.

pours a cloudy dark orange with a one finger fluffy off white head. aroma is caramel malt and hops with pine and orange. has a medium body with descent lacing and good carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma. has a nice dry hop aftertaste and the pine sticks to the tongue for a while. it is also a little sticky on the fingers and lips. a very nice ipa. it also has a ton of sediment floating around.

Draft at Hop Leaf. Actually, it all makes sense now. I had the Double CT a while back and didn’t understand the character. Not that I do now, but this was actually a very heavy bodied IPA, contrary to the deScription. Cloudy darkish gold pour. Tons of hops in the nose, citrus and caramel. Thick gooey body with a nice smooth bitterness. Pretty nice and solid, though not in my top ten.

flatmatt (1305) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma not all that strong: citrus, spicy, pine hops. Flavor has some grapefruit citrus and spice, but the malt flavor comes through stronger than expected. Decent bitterness. Nothing bad about it, but bitterness and hop flavors could be kicked up a notch.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured cloudy orangish gold in color with a medium sized beige head which leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of nice piney hops with a note of grass. Tastes of piney hops, medium sweetness throughout, caramel and grapefruit. The hop taste lingers in my mouth for some time. A solid IPA.

Hop aromas like crazy. Bracing woody bitterness. Slick malty backbone to balance. Like a hundred other really good IPAs, but that’s a good thing!
