A very good IPA. Lots of malt and hops. Burnt orange color. Creamy tan head. The finish has just the amount of bitterness you want, without being overpowering. Vert tasty.

The MBC makes an excellent IPA. I would place it at the top of their normal beer line up. The hops is a little higher than an average IPA (although, perhaps, not for an American IPA). The malt flavor/coloring is perfect. Overall, a well-balanced beer. Stop at the brewery in Webberville and enjoy some shelled-peanuts with one of these brews!

Great hop flavor. Malts and hops blend well together, not overpowering easily drinkable.

This is a great IPA just enough hops to push it right to the edge, but well balanced so you can drink alot of it. Great brewery as well I like most of there beers.

Awsome hop charecter, U.S. Fuggles i guess, deep amber color, very appatizing. as Zehe said, ’i could drink a lot of them’. This beer rocks, on my second tasting I love it even more then the first, an awsome IPA

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very full bodied for an IPA, also very hazy, which I always find to be an appealing quality regardless of style. Nice residual bitterness with a touch maltiness. The beer also has a peppery spiciness to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A robust hoppiness, perhaps lacking thing like style or subtlety, but I’ll take it.

Good. One of the best efforts I’ve tasted from the Michigan Brewing Co. As toupee said ’this is good’
