COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally developed in the late 1700’s, British breweries would send beer via sail to the troops and British expatriates in India. With a whopping hop aroma and finish, married to dry but full maltiness this ale will remind you of those traditional ales. The copper color, East Kent Golding’s hops and moderate carbonation add to its authenticity as a English IPA.

Overall this was a very enjoyable beer but I have had much better IPA’s. I would put this one at slightly above the middle of the pack.

bottle. Amber with small head. Medium malt body. Overcarbonated. Dull hops. Metal. I can almost hear my tastebuds screaming in agony.

Aroma is sweet and citrus, not a ton to the flavor... just nothing special. Hard to believe this place is open with the competition in the area making such a better quality product

Cloudy amber color. Has a sweet honey aroma. Taste is dry and finish is bitter. Lacks the sweetness of the smell, but this does give it it’s own distinct character. Ok beer.

Bready, roasty malt, with floral and citrus-tasting hops. Color and liquid is a thick, cloudy golden one, almost like a light apple-cider. The head is extremely frothy, pour with great care, takes a while to settle as well. The taste is more medium bitter than anything else. Body is light to medium, with an oily, somewhat sticky texture. Carbonation is a bit above average, with a longer, bitter finish.

Thanks, Steve! Medium copper pour with a fairly thin carbonation. Dusky and leafy notes in the nose along with solid maltiness, some modest nut. Body is bright and lively, with a moderately dry finish. Flavors are very understated, emphasis on malts and bitter notes with just enough bright fruit to balance. Average.

My 1st Schmohz beer and what a disappointment. This fizzy, sweet, and fruity brew is an IPA in name only. They didn’t bring any hops to the game and what they did bring should have been left at home. With all the great brewers in Michigan (especially Grand Rapids) it seems strange that someone would bother bottling this stuff.
