Frisch hopfiger Antrunk mit angenehmer Süße. Blumig werdend, daneben etwas Honig. Leicht herb, der Hopfen bleibt auf hohem Niveau. Würzig, süffig, fantastisch ausgewogen. 10/12/12/12/11/12

rumproasts (5050) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2012
bottle. amber with small head. as noted elsewhere, this is more of a hybrid amber ale and ipa. plenty of hops, but not quite to ipa standards. the malts didn’t strike me as very english-tasting. that said, this is quite a tasty beer.

The frankenmuth IPA is a great beer from a small Michigan brewery. The taste offers a typical IPA full flavor in a great michigan craft beer the bitterness really brings out the hoppy flavor

Saled at an esbls tasting. Thanks Joe. A big gushing head. Hazy and light brown. Soft English hops in the aroma with light caramel. Thecflavor has some gentle hops with some spice and yeast.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Amber-orange with a thin quickly fading off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, toffee and pale malt. Taste is dusty with pale malt, mild hops and low bitterness. Okay but bland.

svandyke (177) - USA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle- pours as a nice toffee color. Not much carbonation. Slight toffee smell also, with a bit of an acrid ending. Tastes a bit sweeter than most IPAs with some hop ending. Not as hoppy as expected. Aftertaste left after a sip is not too good. I suppose that is the "earthy" element.

shrubber85 (10683) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle. Pine hops and toffee malt aroma. Slightly hazy amber and off-white head. Moderately bitter pine/grapefruit hops and mild toffee malt flavor. Nicely blended. Tasty.

Onslow (1392) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Six pack from the local Walgreens which is stocking several Frankenmuth varieties. Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dark, cloudy amber brew with a decent head that settles down to a persistent froth. Solid aroma dominated by a caramel malt and wiff of floral hops. Flavor is a very well balanced blend of sweetish caramel malts with a solid but restrained hoppiness in the finish. A very sold brew, very well crafted and refined. Very nice palate, no off flavors. It doesn’t strike me so much as an IPA - especially a modern IPA - as a nicely hopped amber ale. But that must be why they distinguish it as an English IPA - and I aint complaining, this is tasty!
