yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle, at Ashley’s, Ann Arbor. A clear dark golden beer with a small off-white head. It’s got a light bread touch in the aroma, with fruityness and some pine cones, a tad boring actually. It’s full bodied, smooth and semi-dry, with a nice carbonation level. Caramel, a nice bitterness, some pine cones and a generic fruityness in the flavor. Some metallic notes on the very end. Decent indeed, but I find it a bit malty. 150615

One of my favorite American Pale Ales. I have very much enjoyed both Great Lakes beers I have tried.

eaglebones (104) - Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle. Copper in color with medium white, foamy head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is fruity with some citrus, rounded out with some malty sweetness. Just enough bitterness for a crisp finish. This is a really enjoyable pale ale.

Drank on tap into a pint glass at the Tipsy Turtle. Pours golden with slight white head and decent carbonation. Tastes of hops but not overpowering with a nice crisp, piney flavor.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 12 oz bottle. Amber, orange and a bubbly white head. Smells of caramel and sweet flowers. Brown sugar, a touch of smoke, toffee/caramel, grass, very light bitterness. Medium body, filmy finish. Not as aggressively hopped as the bottle says, light toasty malt.

A good oak taste with small smoked hops. Ipa is good and nice mouth feel. A little in flavor at the end. Bottle

Pretty malty compared to many of the current hoppy APA’s on the market. Not bad.

Draft at Stocks and Blondes in Chicago. An English feeling pale ale with savory malts underneath a crisp herbal hop profile. Slight toffee character. Dry finish.
