2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Moose Preserve in Bloomfield Hills. Pours hazy orange - draft card had no description so looking at it I thought it was a wheat ale. Flavor is a little bitter, not intense as the brewer describes (which I found to be a good thing). A bit fruity too with some malty grain notes. Fairly refreshing. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Bottle: Yeast clouded amber & slightly sunburst body, topped with a big head that’s somewhere between off-white & eggshell in color. Aroma has some toasted biscuit, faint citric peel, white pepper, ashy hops, & a hint of light caramel malt. Taste is similar with a hop combo that is slightly citric (grapefruit pith & orange peel) with a finish more English-like (earthy, spicy, peppery, floral-ish). Strong malty base, more toasty than anything, slight hints of Munich with finishing kiss of sweetness. Herbal hop, sharp aftertaste. A decent IPA from Frankenmuth, really cuts through the senses. I’d like to know what hops were used for this.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft pint. Orange amber color. Small, thin head. Slightly cloudy. Hey look... this is not an awesome IPA. But it is a solid, drinkable ale. More carmel and pine than most American IPAs. Enough citrus to keep it interesting. Would have no qualms grabbing another one if I saw it on tap.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lighter IPA. Has a bit of a citrus taste. Pine too. It is drinkable, but the palate/aftertaste knocks it down a bit. It has this sticky pine resin that just lasts. It was not pleasant. I got this at the bar where it was either this or Busch Light. I would pick this over most mass-produced domestics, but not over most IPAs or moderately good micros.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light copper with a light head cover and a few spots of lace. Taste is clean caramel malt that adds carbonation and mild bittering through the palate, turning again to malt in the finish. Well beyond, bittering settles in for the final lingering taste. Pretty good brew.

Hazy, golden-amber pour with a 1-inch off-white, creamy head. Early release of carbonation. Sweet malt and hops in the nose. Grainy and grassy nose. Belgian lace forms. Lingering bitterness on the palate after initial citrus, followed by some metallic notes. Medium-light body. ABV is not noticeable.
