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.

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 (4826) - 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 (625) - 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 (5388) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle shared at jcwattsruggerís 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 (14617) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle shared at Johnís house. Pours amber with white head. Herbal hop nose. Lots of pine. Taste of grain, caramel malts and dry piny finish.

patrick767 (3951) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2011
bottle - Pours light amber-orange with a very small head. It smells of earthy hops and some background malt. The flavor is earthy, grassy hops with moderate bitterness and maybe a touch of pine. Thereís some lingering bitterness in the finish. This is a solid IPA but donít expect a citrus heavy west coast style brew. These are fresh Michigan hops.

evr1dr (145) - Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Pours clear and copper, one finger ivory head that stays for a few minutes and leaves spotty lacing. This was the best part about this beer. Weak, malty nose with fig and apricot. Taste is dry, bitter and flat. Iím sure the taste was better a few months ago but currently there is not much left on the palate.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2011
pours a medium amber with a thin head. aroma is light caramel, maltiness, somewhat floral and piney hoppiness. Flavour is light roasted maltiness, hints of slightly burnt caramel tones, hop comes across as musty floral and lightly woody.
