3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Clean, light, and tight IPA. Uncomplicated like a great cut of meat, which is nice with all the "complex" hotdogs parading around. The tangy hoppy bitterness races in and then zooms around the corner with each sip.

Pours cloudy orangish, strong floral aroma. First sip very surprised at how hoppy it was. Quite bitter, but not overly.. solid brew

Bottle poured into shaker. Orange citrus aroma. Just a touch too bitter for my liking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy medium amber with a lhin white head. Aroma is interesting, with smokiness predominating. Undertones of citrus and other typical hoppy notes. In the mouth, itís a little watery and ordinary. Itís certainly a good IPA, but having had HotD Blue Dot and Stoneís 10th Anniversary in the last two nights, itís hard to not be a little let down....

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazed, to cloudy copper color with a moderate head that dissipates to a covering of off-white bubbles. Orange blossoms, grapefruit, floor malt, and earthy pine. A more traditional scent. Thin in the front, with light pine and citrus. Quite balanced, but there does not seem to have a lot of depth. Easy enough to drink, A hot day out type IPA.

$1.59. The beer pours to a flat looking caramel/bronze body. Nice visible carbonation, ultra thin white head. The aroma is pine, grapefruit, pale malts. The flavor is piney, bitter, spruce, resin. The palate is bitter, oily, resiny, medium bodied, lightly drying. Buttery crackers made this beer better. Nice belch character.

Hazy brown and a medium light tan head with pretty good retention. Piney aroma with a hint ofspice. Medium body, somewhat resinous. A little light honey sweetness, but hops are what this is about. Bitter citrus, spice, and a long dry finish. Refreshing and easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to Beerdrenched for picking this nice IPA up for me. Pours medium / dark brownish bronze with a large dense light tan head. Lots of wooden piney hops on the aroma with traces of floral hops. There is some malt in the background, but this is mainly hops. Medium body (lighter than expected from the appearance and aroma) with nice soft carbonation. Starts with some smooth caramel malt and floral hops - nice blend. Finish brings out the piney hop presence - sharp hops. Nice IPA.

Bottle from Steve (punkrkr27) Thanks! Pours out a dark brown color with a nice white head. Smell is pine, grapefruit, hops, and grass. Taste is rich and creamy, and very full bodied. Pretty solid IPA, very easy to drink. Reminds me of 2 hearted, just more cloudy. Nice one. I would drink this for a session beer quite a bit if I l lived in MI. Good stuff.
