Picked up a sixer of this at Binnyís in Naperville. Iíll start out by saying that if I had never drank one of these side-by-side with a FFF Alpha King, I probably would have rated it higher. That being said, I have done a side-by-side and AK rocked the socks off of this brew. On to the rating though... Transparent amber colored pour with a 1-finger fluffy white head. Predominately floral hoppy aroma. Citrusy flavor, light malt backbone. Very well done IPA (itís just not quite an Alpha King)

An excellent beer withall the qualities a beer should have. Words cannot describe beer made like this one. If you want an accurate review of this beer, buy some. You wonít be sorry.

Very solid IPA. Just had it for the second time and for some reason it was much better than the first time. Solid hop aromas and flavors throughout, with mainly Simcoe, Fuggles, and maybe a little PNW hops. Different IPA for the main reason that its a blend between English Style and American Style....Solid brew

@ Beer School @ GLBC, 12oz bottle, pours nice with some Simcoe and Fuggles hops.. very nice IPA, spot on for what i like, although the brewery says this is actually 8% ABV, a delicious brew

Another great brew from a great brewery. Pours a golden color with a minimal head. Smell is slightly hoppy. Taste is bitter hops. A very refreshing beer that is quickly becoming my summer staple to have in the fridge. The alcohol is completely hidden so be careful with these.

Huge thanks to Hogtown Harry for sending me home with this bottle after a Friday afternoon of sipping beers on his waterfront balcony. I wasnít expecting one of the best American session style (7.5%? Ok, not such a long session then) IPAís. Dark yellow, medium bubbly white head. Pleasant nose - floral, light citrus, even some fragrant soap - nice. Taste - soft light malt up front, impressive aggressive bitterness follows. Right on style here- classic American IPA done to perfection. Long biter finish. Dry, quenching, and refreshing. Great stuff, well done Great Lakes!!

Slightly hazy golden with a small, off-white head. Somewhat fruity aroma with notes of hops. Very full body with sweet, fruity accents and dry, citrusy hops. Finish is clean and dry.

ChazMania (665) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Bottled. Very clear pour, no real head to speak of. Aroma is honey and honeydew melon like. Flavor is a straight up IPA. Basic hop flavor but nothing overt. Decent single.

Bottle from Walnut Liquorette. Poured a clear gold/amber color; medium to small white head. Aroma of citrus, orange and melon. A slight funkiness, but nothing real bad. Really dry with a nice bitter bite. Good mouthfeel and hopfeel; medium bodied. Nice flavor with good balance of malt and citrus/melon hops. Very solid and enjoyable.

Bottle from Glenn at Paulís house. Thanks! Orange amber body with a small, whispy head. Flavor was citrusy grapefruit and some melon hops with a good, solid malt backbone. Alcohol slightly evident.
