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.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2007
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.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2007
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.

DirtyMartini (194) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 13, 2007
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.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2007
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?

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy golden with a small, off-white head. Fat, fruity nose. Very full body with sweet, fruity accents and dry, citrusy hops. Nice all right. 310507

Ungstrup (31471) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2007
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of hops and malt. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of fruit - among them grapefruit.

MrChris (110) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2007
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.

madsberg (11067) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2007
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Flowers, light herbs and some sweetness in the aroma. A bit citric. Flavour is fruity and herbal. Sweetness, flowers and some orange and caramel. Is medium bodied. Light to medium bitter end.

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!
