3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. this is a nice moderate IPA with a good balance of floral and bitter hops. a nice light sweetness in there as well. a lot of IPAs overwhelm the senses with massive amounts of hops. great lakes uses some restraint with this one and it pays off.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Light amber pour, with nice head that diminishes into a thin off-white film. Smells of pine and citrus. Initial taste fills the mouth with bitterness, sweet malt, a hint of caramel, and then a little heat. Lasting bitter finish. Good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear honey amber body with a nicely retaining vanilla head. Good lacing. Aroma boasts citrusy and grassy hops atop some bready and caramel maltiness. Taste has a prevalent grapefruit like hop bitterness softened by notes of tangerine, caramel, and fresh mown hay. Nicely balanced and highly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tasted like an english IPA made with american hops. definitely a fruitiness, likely from an english ale yeast in the flavor as well as a nice bitterness from the hops and a prominently citrus hop character.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear pale body with a small white head. The aroma is apples, bread, pear and light citrus. The flavor is sweet fruits, herbal and apple. Medium body is softly carbonated and a bit tannic. wtf? This is an IPA?

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet hoppyiness on the nose. Pours clear pale yellow-orange in color with a nice white head. Full sweet hoppy IPA with a fine bitter and dry ending. Gentle frothy mouthfeel, slightly syrupy, warm after taste. A solid IPA, just right for starting my summer ale season. The bitter ending stays with you to the bottom of the glass.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a dark yellow with a little gold tint to it and has a one finger bubbly off white head. aroma is malt and hops with some melon and orange characteristics. has a medium body with descent lacing and carbonation. flavor is definitely better and stronger than aroma. a very nice ipa and another nice one from great lakes. palate is oily yet a little creamy as well, and has a dry hop aftertaste. i would definitely get more of this!
