COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Michigan grown hops are the story in this seasonal harvest ale. Hopivore is wet-hopped with hops added to the brew just hours after harvest, creating rare, fresh flavors.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Pours a very dark caramel orange color with burnt orange edges when held to a light and a one finger frothy off-white head that quickly dissolves into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Sweet caramel malt aroma with faint earthy hops. Subtle citrus and earthy pine needle presence but the nose is overpowered by the malt notes. Hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit and nut. Medium bodied with more of a hop presence than the aroma suggests. Dry, resinous and slightly bitter with an earthy floral presence and some piny flavor. This is countered by a sweet malt profile with hints of caramel and biscuit. The hop flavor is kind of one-dimensional while not being very flavorful and the malt presence is a bit to strong for my preference. Not a fan of this one.

crossovert (9446) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
12 oz bottle. It pours a clear copper color with a foamy white head. It sticks for a bit and leaves some nice lacing. The smell is standard pale ale fair, it isnít much, a kiss of hops with a big candy/caramel malt presence. The flavor follows. It is mellow, the hops seem quite vegetal. Low bitterness, low carboantion. It is an average APA. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-17-2010 02:44:18

blipp (7070) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Earthy floral hoppy aroma with some sweet toffee malt. The flavor has toffee and herbal/floral hops. Not bad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5583) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a large foamy orange-beige head that lingered and produced a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint caramel and vague fruit. The flavor was sour caramel with light vague fruits and a touch of nut. Bland really. Long caramel finish. Medium body, fairly smooth. Eh.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Fireworks. The slightly minty nose leads to a mild, malty flavor with a good does of hops in background. What you end up with is a decent session brew that really is in tough company. Perhaps better as a APA or just Pale Ale.

decent beer but nothing great...just kind of average. with the name it would seem it needs to come a little stronger than it does.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2011
12oz bottle from Samís, Durham. Thank Shango for singles, as Iíd not have wanted to plump for the full sixer (or four-er, whatever it was). I know, itís a crowded style. But even allowing for the difficulty of brewing a distinctive IPA, this one still fell a bit flat. Bright amber pour, crisp head, and nice leafy aroma in some way. But the flavor is just a bit underwhelming, with a one-dimensional dryness thatís not framed or balanced by anything else of note.

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Pours a clear copper with small with a small white head. Good hop floral aroma, not much bitterness. Grassy flavor with a slight bitter finish.

badgerben (4629) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Dark copper color with a small head. Toasty and wet biscuit aroma with some caramel. Strong biscuit and caramel taste. Very light piney bitterness. Much more like an ESB than IPA.

screigh (513) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Pours a hazy copper color. No head at all. Smells like dirty fish tank water. Taste is thin, watery and a bit like dirty water. If I try real hard I may get some hop flavor. Almost no bitterness.
