@ 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

[383-20070630] Tap @ Great Lakes (Cleveland, OH). Sweet orange citrus hops aroma with a touch of lychee. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-quick white head. Pretty citrusy hops flavour. Bitter and dry initially, medium-full body. Pleasant, hides the alcohol well.

Bottle. Poured a deep bronze color with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy, which comes out strong in the flavor. Dry aftertaste with a metallic hint to it. The alcohol content is evident in the flavor. Didnít pick up the fruitiness referred to by the bottle and others rating this.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a copper color with a nice white head. Smell was of hops, which was also heavy on the first taste., but was rounded out with a good balance of malts. There was a hint of sour dough bread also. As the beer warmed, the alcohol became more evident.
