A single malt and single hop version of an American Brewers classic style. This is definitely our hoppiest beer and quickly becoming a hop head cult classic!

10 ounce pour at the brewpub and a growler to go. Murky peach nectar with a whispy white head. Wonderfull orange apricot and tropical aromas. Juicy Fruit flavors with a long enjoyable bitterness. Medium body and carbonatin with a semi sweet finish. Really an awesome beer.

Snifter @ Hopcat: Wow. I thought this was fantastic. Pours a glowing, hazy orange. Smells like fresh squeezed white grapefruits. Bitterness just rolls off the tongue here. Dangerously drinkable.

Draft @ The Livery. Pours a bright, deep honey-golden color; bright white head with perfect retention and lacing that coats the glass; a gorgeous pour. Resiny, sweet oranges and citrus hops in the aroma; soft and generous and juicy. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: intensely smooth, resinous oranges, citrus, and floral hoppy notes upfront; touch of acidity; so smooth, resiny, oily and dense; intensely drinkable. Awesome IPA. Lengthy finish: resinous oranges, citrus, and a touch of sugar.

MBGF07. Hazy pale body with a tiny white head. The aroma is big and hoppy with citrus-grapefruit and tangerine, lightly catty, pine and light sweetness. Flavor is fairly dry with just a touch of cotton candy, grapefruit, peach and orange peels. Medium body is soft with moderate carbonation and a dry, bitter end.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Rating # 2800...Tap at brewery and served in a pint glass: Golden hued with a forever lasting creamy white head and outstanding lace. The nose detects biscuity malt, rye bread, earthy yeast and a mild resiny hop vapour. Some pineapple and mango fruity ester does show after it warms a bit.

The taste is very balanced as a milder IIPA. Citric and piney supported by a subdued malt base. The finish is very clean with just a note of light pepper. The mouth feel is equally smooth and dangerously drinkable with no note of alcohol. Let see how the growlers go over this weekend as I know of at least 2 and maybe more showing up at DLD.

Pailhead (6384) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2007
On tap: Big fresh piney aroma aroma with moderate grapefruit. It’s a cloudy golden-orange with a small off-white head. The flavor starts wtih a a quicky mango fruity sweetness which quickly fades to a big grapefruit hoppiness with some light pine. Long lasting grapefruit aftertaste.

ACBF on 6/21. Nice malt in the beginning, nice citrusy hop at the end. Enough said... but this one is much better than it sounds. Turns out you can get a ton of flavor and complexity out of one hop variety and one malt. Well done.
