Draft sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate balanced citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

Sampled at 2013 MBG Summer Festival. I didn’t take notes on this so it’s from memory. It was my favorite IPA I sampled that day so I really wanted to rate. Awesome citrus and tropical fruit aroma and taste. Nice malt backbone with a touch of caramel. I remember a very nice sweet/bitter balance with a good oily mouthfeel. A great IPA. Would like to head to the brewery sometime to sample some more from them.

Love this stuff. Bright and hoppy, strong citrus hit, slight hint of juniper, well balanced, with a inviting finish. My favorite summer IPA at the moment.

On tap at Hudsonville Winery/Pike 51 Brewpub as an unnamed IPA (named Kush IPA the next day). Hazy amber with a medium foamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, malt and light floral and piney hops. Taste is a blend of citrus and floral hops with some light woodsy hops and balanced out by a decent amount of caramel. Semi-vegetal with above average bitterness.
