3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 Tap @ Hughie?s. Burnt orange pour with a finger of tan foam and nice lacing. Softly bitter, grassy and a touch floral. Does not taste at all diabolical.

Moderately bitter on the tongue. Dark orange pour with quick white foam. The grassy slightly dominates the citrusy hops. The malts are a little more complex, sweet at the end but a little bit of bread at the start.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a semi-transparent orange brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was hoppy. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bitter hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of bitter crisp hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 4-04-2016 (Bottled on 10/12/15) The appearance is a medium sized ivory head that mostly diminished, transparent amber body, slow rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is light citrus and pine khops, orange hops, light lemon, and caramel. The flavor presents light bitterness, citrus hops, lightly fruity, and quite malty. The mouthfeel is creamy and light carbonation. This is a medium bodied IPA. An easy drinking IPA with an average taste to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark gold with a light, off-white, shallow head. Nose is grapefruit, camphor, rosemary, sage, and lavender -- very well balanced. Bitter on the front of the tongue, with a nicely countered orange-toffee malt; thereís a saline or savory edge that adds a third element to the overall taste. I canít say it enough; balanced, balanced, balanced. Itís a little understated, but very harmonious. The finish is, however, a little short. Quite nice.

Great IPA. Tasted this side by side with 7 other MI IPAís and it ranked at the top with 2 others. Nice long-lasting head,copper-gold color and piney aroma. Nice resiny hop flavor balancing a malty background. Solid.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 10/28/15. Pours golden color, big slightly beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, citrus hops, but it feels old. It IS about 3 months old, and Iím pretty sure it was a malty IPA to begin with, but itís particularly malty now. Decently hoppy finish. Would def. be better fresher.
