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.

Smells like dank cheap weed. Seems like it has potential to be a nice IPA then just doesn’t make it. Pretty much what I expected from the brewery.

Meh. This was a very blah beer. Not much going on at all. Could do without trying this one again.

jcnielsen (2055) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Fresh cut grass, resiny, bitter aromas. Grassy, earthy, bitter, light caramel flavors. Meh, alright.

strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Dark and dreamy amber pour with thin beige head. Great to look at. Nose is dank hop and evergreen copse. Mouthful of grass and sweet resin up front, followed by a dry and bitter kicker. Was hoping for stickier, more profound hop notes. Some lingering malt sweetness. Full bodied and smooth. Has some potential, just not quite on the money.

RABinCO (1213) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle into a glass. pours deep amber, slight white head. Grassy, slightly bubblegum aroma. Taste is grass, malt, caramel, cotton candy. Meh.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 Decent IPA, has a great color and mouthfeel but falls somewhat short in the aroma and taste departments. Was really expecting more piney and citrusy notes with the claims of extra fresh hops being used in this brew. Would not buy again in bottle but I would like to try it on tap and taste the difference.

Pours amber with a thin wispy tan well maintained head. Notes of sweet, mild hop resin. Medium bodied and resinous with lush carbonation.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
An orange amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, biscuit malt with green hops, floral, light dough notes. In mouth, a nice caramel with grassy floral hops, green and fresh, nice. On tap at Iron Monkey, Dec. 31 2012.

From bottle. Pours deep amber in color. Aroma was dark fruit, earthy, grassy and piney hops. Taste followed but drank like an Imperial. Good malt balance. Was looking for more in your face hop! May be bottle age?
