COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We used the final runnings from the Elk Rapids batch of Peaches and Creme (coming soon!) and hopped it heavily with Zeus and then lagered it. We also used small amount of bitter orange peel to provide some subtle sweet flavors and enhance the aromas of the Zeus hops. It is delicious, so it’s also going fast!

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold with a bug foamy white head that lingers. Citrus aroma, of orange zest, hops, and a hint of grapefruit. Taste is bitter and smooth, starts a bit floral and orangey, then picks up a big hoppy bitterness and bready yeast, with some creamier malt and sugar. Lingering bitterness. Nice IPA.

Mittenator (1092) - Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle to dogfish head IPA glass. Light gold with a slight haze and a frothy off-white head. Spicy hops, orange and a slight skunk in the aroma. Piney upfront and finishes with some biscuit and grains. Really spicy. Nice and light.

JK (4287) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2013
GABF 2012. Yellow. Bright hop aroma with a fresh hop aroma, like a wet-hop ipa, with a floral character. One of the better IPAs I had at GABF.

markwise (4310) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2012
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is a nice light malt with a bit of citrus and a big punch of Zythos bitterness and grassiness. Flavor is similar with citrus up front and a big hop punch. The finish is somewhat abrasive, but the initial flavor is nice. Medium in body and interesting at first.

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy gold with some creamy head. Hoppy nose, some malt sweetness, a little sugary, a little yeasty, clean. Sweet, malty flavor, honey, pine, orange, lemon. Medium bodied, zesty finish. Nose could be better, but otherwise this is nice.

Gold/apricot tinged pour. Aroma is fruity as hell and then loads of spruce and resiny hops! Flavor is spruce, resin, light orange notes. Nice beer at GABF.

jredmond (5029) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2012
One of the very last beers sampled at GABF 2012 with Andrew and Moreau. Notes of pine, citrus, fresh hop. Nice IPA and one of my fav shorts offerings at the festival.

douglas88 (5556) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2012
On tap at GABF 2012 in Denver. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big nose of pine and fruit. The flavor is a light refreshing brew with lots of bitter hops, light citrus, a bit unbalanced perhaps. Smooth. Green.
