COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is insanely dry hopped with Centennial Hops. This pale copper colored ale has a flowery hop aroma and a bold hop bitterness. Hop Heads Only Please!

Good IPA there are several others by Michigan breweries that are as good or better but, this one has good balance.

Slightly hazy copper colored liquid. Neat white head that lingers. Nice mildly hoppy aroma. Tangy and astringent hop flavor. Somewhat metallic. Lingering bitters. Thin texture. Aftertaste not really pleasant. Second sip, bitters intensify. Somewhat nasty aftertaste gaining momentum.

Sorry, but this one didn’t live up to the hype all the previous midwest raters have been giving it. Amber colored with a nice lemony citrus aroma. Light bodied with simple citrus flavors and a harsh bitterness in the finish. I’m not afraid of hops but this one just seemed a bit stale. It wasn’t bad but I’ve had better.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2004
A bit heavy on the head, but a good amber color. The aroma is good IPA style, but a bit strong on citrus. There is a subtle nutyness there as well. The bite from this is right one the money. The body of the beer is a little thin however, just leaves the lips feeling a little watery.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Great complex American hop character: pine, orange, grapefruit and herbs in abundance. The bitterness shows up very late in this beer, long after the swallow. There is malt here which shows up as it warms. If this were locally available, I’d be a regular purchaser. Excellent, classic American IPA.

heykevin (1277) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Clear coppery golden. Juicy centennial aroma- orange peels definitely. Quite bitter with loads of hop flavor as well. Maltiness is subdued, and ultimately loses to the hop charge. Not a great IPA by any means, but will satisfy a hop craving.

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Pours from the bottle with a light copper color and a little bit of scum for head. Powerful aroma of oranges, vanilla, coconut and pepper. Not very well balanced in flavor. Pine and orange peels dominate. Very little malt.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Although I’m not an IPA fan, this stuff is pretty good. It’s not overpowering with hoppy biterness and has a good citrus flavor that eliminates that usual IPA aftertaste.

obxdude10 (2077) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Amber in color, huge bubbly white head, nice hoppy nose, medium-full body, very clean & crisp, decent malt backbone, straight-forward hoppiness in the flavors, maybe a bit too assertive, dry & spicy finish, a decent IPA

O.K. so I am not a big IPA fan, maybe hops are not my thing. However, for an IPA I am impressed. Good head and lace, a bit of ginger? Something with citrus.
