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!

Bottle.A bit confusing...this has a slightly different name, label and alcohol content but...oh well. Beer has a nice ruby orange color and a thin off-white head. I like the aroma...sweet and spicy grapefruit. Flavor is much the same... sweet honey and lemon at first with a hoppy grapefruit twang and finally a mild sweet and sour aftertaste on the tongue. Not as much kick as some higher rated IPA but it is refreshing

Solid IPA; great logo and packaging. Nothing overwhelming about the taste. Hoppy and bold but a bit too much aftertaste imo.

Backlog from old phone notes. Orange to amber in appearance with a white head. Aroma and flavor of pine, citrus fruits and light resinous hops. Decent IPA overall.

Belle robe orangée légèrement ambrée et légèrement opaque. Jolie mousse qui tient bien.Beaucoup de saveurs d?agrumes, herbale et poivrée. Texture légèrement syrupeuse. Bon moelleux apporté par des notes de biscuit du malt.Longue en bouche.Une très bonne IPA.

Light copper color. Great hoppy nose with nice pine, citrus, and floral elements, some sweet caramel. Taste follows, a bit malty for me, but not over the top.

Bottle from Brook Falls Discount - how have I not rated before? Orangey pour with a ring of a white head leaving some spotty lace. Aroma has floral hops, light fruits and pine. Taste is of sweet caramel, some pine and some fruitiness. Medium bodied without much alcohol presence. Perhaps a touch lowly carbonated. Finishes heavily to the sweet side of bittersweet. Shrug? Have had over the years many times, and between Founders Centennial and this one, these bigger SW Mich brewers need to get a good West Coast IPA. Centennial is solid and old-style, but not made for an IPA in this century. 13.2
