4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Pours a darker orange color with a minimal head that dissipates right away and leaves a thin ring of lacing. Smells of tons of peaches, light juicy orange, mango, maybe some papaya or guava, stonefruit, along with some carmel from the malt, and light honey. Somewhat dry aroma. Taste starts with lots of sweet, juicy fruits. Peach, mango, papaya, and some grapefruit. Sweetness from the honey shows through already. The middle brings more honey sweetness as well as some carmel malts that really balance the fruity hops. Starting to get the resinous bitterness from the nugget hops. The finish a wonderful combination of fruity hops, sweetness, and slight bitterness. Lots of juicy peach, mango, some tangerine, stonefruit, grapefruit peel, honey, and carmel. Slightly dry and bitter, but the sweetness cuts the bitterness wonderfully. Full body with a creamy and oily mouthfeel. The mosaic hop never disappoints, and the nugget hops provide a nice resinous bitterness to contrast the fruity qualities of the mosaic hops. Hoppy, yet very balanced and the flavors the hops bring are pretty complex. Excellent double ipa.

Pours a reddish golden with a white head which disappears quickly. Aroma is pine and heavy citrus, grapefruit. Taste is overwhelming grapefruit, crisp for a heavy mouthfeel, no residual oiliness, sweet malt and minimal bitterness. Finishes very clean for a double. Quite impressive.

A pretty simplistic beer that was very well executed. Has a nice pine earthy bitterness that is very refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at MacGregor’s. Poured a orange tinted amber. Slightly off white head that lasted for me and nice lace. Aroma is pure grapefruit. Body is somewhat slick and oily. Taste is hoppy grapefruit. The malts and hops balance is very good. Alcohol is hidden. Citrus lingers and bitters in the finish. Another winner from Great Lakes.
