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.

dmac (4444) - 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.

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.

patrick767 (3696) - 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. There’s some lingering bitterness in the finish. This is a solid IPA but don’t 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. I’m sure the taste was better a few months ago but currently there is not much left on the palate.

Trev (1975) - 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.

Butters (3920) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Clear dull dark amber pour with thin ring of tan head. Didn’t think the bottle was that old, but apparently this one was. Old hops, a little stale. Big malt profile. Not bad, but not what I had hoped for. Guess this one needs to be drank immediately after it is brewed!

obguthr (4317) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Barley malt aroma. Clear dark copper, headless. Malt and dried leaves. Alcohol is noticeable. Drinks like an amber, perhaps a pale ale, but a little too dark. I hardly would call it an IPA as it lacks much of a hop presence, save for a subtle green leafiness in the finish. Decent beer though

wmubronco1992 (653) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark ambe. Medium sized off white head. Nice lacing. Very understated aroma. Flavor is mild pine and caramel, but also very understated. Nice bitter aftertaste. Based on the name I was expecting something much hoppier. I wouldn’t have guessed this was even an IPA. Much more like a Pale Ale. However even with the unusual classification I have to admit that this beer was extremely drinkable. Everything is balanced very nicely. Could drink quite a few of these.

bubbleflubber (1901) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Beautiful amber pour (deep hue), with a 1-finger retentive eggshell head that leaves spotty lace. The nose is of wet hops, some slightly dank basement, a hint of minerals and light malt. Flavors are not overwhelming, but not without substance either. Some light pepper and biscuit flour, with citrus, rind, peel and zest, light dankness, some minerals and copper in there, finishing with a lemon and spruce bitter. The body is on the lighter side, without a large mouthfeel and decently carbonated palate. Certainly doesn’t make a huge impression for the genre, but stands on its own and makes for a very nice offering.

Thanks to SS for this! Clear copper pour airy off white and drippy lace. Aroma is grainy with hints of pine. Flavor follows suite . Dry finish
