In fairness, it might have been old. MI is not their usual distribution. Bland pale ale. Many MI APAs are better.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured two bottles gently into 24oz mug. Nice sweet smell to this one. Hazy gold pour, translucent with steady carbonation though very minimal head. Taste is hops and grapefruit, mild bitter finish. Good APA with a smooth and sudsy mouth feel. I could imagine this one being a staple of theirs.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 12 oz bottle accidentally aged 4 months, poured into a pint glass. The aromas are a pleasant and bright combination of floral, lemon, bread crust, coriander, and pine with a mellow touch of caramel. Itís a slightly hazy, effervescent pale yellow-orange with a rocky, sudsy, and frothy white head that retains quite a bit of creamy head and leaves abundant tight-webbed lace. Itís taste is a medium bitter (flirting with medium high) and a medium sweetness as a secondary note. Itís oily with a fuzzy carbonation. The medium body is full of bittersweet citrus notes starting juicy sweet and caramel notes, and finishing crisp, citrus bitter and pine-like. Itís clean and slightly astringent with slightly dry, bitter citrus aftertaste.
