This amber colored beer is creamy and delectable, probably our best India Pale Ale yet. Hops, hops and more hops will satisfy even the most extreme hop head.

12oz Bottle. Best before: 05-16-08. Gooey hop nose. A good mingling of hop spices, wet leaves, and flowers. Blended and backed with alcohol and decent caramel. Pours a crystal-clear amber, with an orange fringe and white, soapy rim. Flavor is interesting. There’s a lot of hop flavor, which I greatly appreciate, but it gets washed away somewhat by piquant alcohols and a thin body. Not as chewy as I would have expected with this color. Grapefruit juice lingers. A little bit of dust and lightly old hop resin dot the back end of the beer. A very mild yeast by-product shows mid-palate. Nice hop flavors, but in the end a little watery, dusty-tasting, and alcoholic. Thanks Sean!

islay (2276) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2016
4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Warren, Michigan. Consumed on 4-21-16. Pours a clear amber with beige to cream head. Nice color. Orange citric hops in the aroma. Grainy smell. The graininess works better in the flavor than the aroma. Tastes like cereal with orange slices. Medium body. Frothy in the palate. Nice palate effects. Overall, good though not great.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy orange pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange peel, citrus into some floral notes, some slight pine into some caramel, toffee. Taste was a mix of citrus, slight white fruit into some floral, herbal notes, some caramel and toffee round it out, finishing bitter.

(draft @ Kuhnhenn Brewing Company - Warren, MI) Amber pour with a thin white head. Sweet caramel and malt aroma with a piney and citrus undertone. Flavor is sweet at the start with a bitter hop backbone that blends well with the sweet malts.

Draft. Clear and orange with a 2 finger head. Lots of lacing in glass. The best thing about this beer was the nose - beautiful citrus/floral hops. Smooth in the mouthfeel with lots of citrus notes. Decent malt balance. Very easy drinking. Damn good IPA by a fine brewery.

Sample at Kuhnhenn on 5/16/14. Clear amber in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, some caramel and breadiness along with piney and grassy hops. Malty flavor with grassy and citrusy hops through to the finish.

Clownoisseur (428) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2014
On tap at Kuhnhenn. Appearance is an amber/gold with a two finger fluffy white head. Breaks into spotty lacing and clings to the glass. Aroma is loaded with floral hops. Some sweetness permeates but not much. Taste is hop forward with a nice floral bitterness balanced with some caramel malt sweetness. Very nice IPA with a medium body that provides a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Some good earthiness comes across in the finishes lending some dryness to the mouthfeel.
