COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of a legendary style is not for the timid. Strong, assertively hoppy and dangerously seductive. A skillful blend of three premium barley malts with generous amounts of Northern Brewer and Cascade Hops creates a special ale to satisfy even the most demanding palate.

Bottle courtesy of ray101. Pours copper with a generous white head. Smells of wildflowers, light spice, earthy, some funky undertones. Tastes dry with a pronounced floral note, soe spicy elements and a dry crisp finish.

A goodish ipa but no goose island. Not very aromatic, a bit more flavorful. More sweet than typical.

bdunhill (250) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2011
This IPA has a strong aroma that pair well with its cloudy amber orange color and frothy white head. It has a heavy bitter taste with an abrupt finish. Overall this is a great IPA.

A solid IPA. Catching up on my old ratings, must be from when Ben4321 lived with me. Would like to try again.

HopBurp (74) - Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Pours a cloudy burnt orange flavor with 2 finger head. nice nose of grapefruit and orange--sweet. Taste is of heavy citrus grapefruit, pine bitter mouth pucker hops. hint of carmel malts. Finishes with an acidic texture that develops leaving you with the hops over the malt--tingles. Very nice ipa, balance isnt perfect but still good.

One of their longtime house brews is their High Seas IPA, which is also distributed in many areas of the state. While MBC tweaks their recipes pretty regularly, this is a more traditional IPA, in the sense that it’s both high gravity and generous with the hops. Checking in at around 7.5 percent, it leads off a spicy Cascade dry hopped aroma and immediately warms the palate with a nice malty fullness. The sweetness shifts quickly into a sharp hoppy bite and rolls off the back of the tongue and into the exhale with a long, lingering dry finish. Classic. If you’re into the huge IBUs, this one may be a little less satisfying than others, but for an IPA with a little more balance, this would be one to seek out. As MBC can be inconsistent overall, this is one of their best and most reliable offerings. Serving type: on-tap

On draft at Bar Louie. Hazy copper color with frothy white head. Aroma of heavy pine resin, grapefruit. Taste is quite bitter, with a bit of balancing caramel sweetness. Crisp and lively mouthfeel. A solid IPA, especially if you like them more hop-forward.

Light orangish pour, whitish head. Citrus, floral and earthy hops dominate with some nice fruity caramel malt in the background. Not a bad little brew here!

Pours up on tap at the brewery with a brownish orange and no head. Hoppy aroma with apricot. Bit of a watery flavor, and quite hoppy.
