3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazed amber color with a medium off-white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of piney hops, fruit and sweet malt. The finish is somewhat bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazed, golden-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty nice with lots of citrusy pines and florals consisting of grapefruits and oranges with a few resins. Medium sweet caramel offers a nice balance as well. Flavor is similar. Citrusy grapefruits and oranges up front with a nice mix of pines and florals. Caramel comes in to balance with a moderate sweetness before the hops grow a touch into a balanced finish where this is dry, citrusy, somewhat resiny, and has a moderate bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a very solid IPA and a real pleasant surprise. Well balanced and nicely hopped with lots of citruses.

Tap at the brewpub. Amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma is soft and orangey. Nice light sweetness along with a touch of frutiness. Soft and lightly hoppy with a kiss of juicy fruity malts. Lingering fruity flavour over a softly hoppy finish. A fresh, tasty IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Last night on tap at DBC before Tigers game. Pleasant surprise--$2 pints and BBQ specials for a birthday celebration. I was very impressed with this IPA!! Great balance and a perfect amount of hops for me to session Excellent finish and the hops tasted so fresh--citrus bang. Perfect for a summer day like yesterday. Well done DBC and thanks for setting the table for a great night!. BTW, best BBQ brisket I have ever had (better than slows, believe it or not)--should make this a regular menu item.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft pint at the brewpub. Do you ever eat a plate of food and say to yourself, "Yeah, that wasn’t bad," but you could kinda tell the cook followed a recipe note by note? That’s kinda how I felt about this one (and another Detroit BC offering) ... not really bad, if a bit flat, but just boring and uninspired. (#3812, 1/23/2010)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slight amber orange with medium off-white head. Aroma strong of citrus hops, slight malt, grass, and pine. Flavor matches well, but is dominated by grapefruit, which is nice for a glass, but not my favorite hops bite. Overall a very nice brew...for one glass.
