Hop head heaven!  The Lenawee IPA is the anti-thesis of a balanced beer:  light in color and malt, with barely a hint of reddish-orange in its deep golden hue, but with a huge hop bitterness to tingle the tongues of the most demanding hop-heads!

Draft. Pours a medium, poorly retained ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a slightly hazy dark gold (SRM 6) body....nose is pine, resin, cereal, light toffee/caramel, no esters, balance to the hops......taste is slightly sweet with toffee/caramel hints, cereal heavy pine, citrus peel, finishing with a slightly astringent lingering bitterness, dry, balance heavily to the hops....mouth feel, light of medium body, slightly astringent. The hop backbone, is dominant, and additionally is a bit rough and raw. More delicate floral, honey tones are absent and would soften the hop backbone. Additionally the malts are simple and totally dominated. A change in the malt bill would be welcome, and the addition of more aromatic hops to the dry hop stage would make a better beer. It is definitely an American IPA, it just needs improvement. BJCP 7/3/10/4/6

Clear gold with white head. Great nose. A bit faint, but very complex. Citrus and herbal hops. Grass - almost like fresh hops. Taste is standard ipa, with nothing to remarkable. Good drinkability.

Tap from the brewery. Poured a golden color, with a fluffy white head and good lacing. Smell is very dank with aromas of weed, grass, pine, and hemp. Taste is grass, pine, earth, somewhat spicy, and light citrus with a medium bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium, as well as the carbonation. Overall, a very well-balanced IPA and a pleasant surprise from Dillon.
