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.

This beer is one of the best examples of the ipa style. Aggressive hops at the beginning and finish. A beautifully balanced ale designed for hopheads only.

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.

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.

A very good example of this brewing style. Pours orange citrusy aroma and grapefruity hops taste. Excellent out of the tap at brewpub.

Very pleasant aroma, hoppy, with a faint grassiness. The taste followed suit. It was a dry hoppy beer with a slight bitter aftertaste. This is one of my favorites.

Orange amber with fair, creamy tan head / Nose of citrus and sweet malt / Medium body, creamy, some residual sweetness, with balance of malt and hops, and with good, dry finish / Flavors of burnt sugar, orange, fresh, and fresh cut pine / Sweet and fruity, but very nice.

Pale orange color; Head was creamy and dense; WONDERFUL nose- pine resin and maltyummy. Excellant first impressions. Surprisingly appealing and satisfying (I hate IPAs). The hop level is high enough to keep things interesting. A pleasent surprise.
