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.

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 (5077) - 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 Sam’s, Durham. Thank Shango for singles, as I’d not have wanted to plump for the full sixer (or four-er, whatever it was). I know, it’s 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 that’s 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 (4502) - 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 (472) - 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.

dmac (4208) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle shared at jcwattsrugger’s winter tasting. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and slight chocolate. Appearance of a clear honey orange body under a small light beige head. Light thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Flavors of slightly grassy hops, caramel and chocolate malts. Drinkable and forgetable.

jtclockwork (8915) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle shared at John’s house. Pours amber with white head. Herbal hop nose. Lots of pine. Taste of grain, caramel malts and dry piny finish.
