Draft. Very floral bouquet that smells like a typical IPA. Taste is a more muted IPA but very flavorful with pine and citrus. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

Floral and citrus aroma .. similar taste... a bit of a lighter ipa, but not bad overall.

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.

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.
