This is my go to Michigan IPA. When you just need to be punched with hops and don?t care about a balanced finish.Delightful!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
3 month old bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with an average white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is citrus and must. Orange and grapefruit are strong as well as bits of pine. Taste is dank hops, lots of pine, and citrus fruit. Bread and caramel as well. Thick for the style and no visible alcohol. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the bottle of a six pack, has a gritty sandy texture, some dry and sticky, getting some fresh cut grass, black pepper, it almost seems watery which is hard to believe at 7.7% but that’s what I’m getting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Whitey’s / Lawrenceburg IN --- Clear medium/light amber with a bubbly two=finger white head, thin bands of lace. Taste is malt that is joined by carbonation and smooth, but strong, citrus hops on the swallow. Malt and hops share a long finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma of dank hops. Look of lightly cloudy orange with nice head. Flavor is citrus, grass dank hops and a touch of sweetness and balanced bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a hazy golden Amber with a huge thick white head. Medium carbonation and plenty of lacing. Strong aroma of sweet candy corn and malts. Medium body. Taste starts out very bitter then gets extremely bitter leaving an unpleasant harsh citrus rind aftertaste in the back of the mouth. I didn't like this at all!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 4-24-16. Pours a clear brass with a large amount of cream-colored head. Many small bubbles rising. Produces good lacing. I like the bubbles, foam, and lacing, but otherwise a boring appearance. Some yeast haze and thicker, smoother head in the final pour elevates the appearance. Scents of lemon and almost mint. A basil herbality to the smell. Dry taste with a dry, bitter finish. Hoppiness is clearly present and in fact dominant yet at the same time subdued. I wonder if I have an older bottle, although it can’t be too old. Not a lot of complexity in the hops; mostly just dryness/bitterness. I like a classic, bitter IPA, but it’s hard for me to give one a particularly high score. A malty sweetness does develop upon multiple sips. Soft in the palate. Medium body. Filling. Unremarkable palate effects. Overall, an okay IPA and beer but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Hazy gold color with a thin white head, fair lacing. Appearance of some suspended solids. Aroma cut grass, grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruit. Initial flavor is a hop bomb which lingers on the tongue, pine and bitter greens. But, light fruity malts do follow. Orange, banana, apricot. Medium body. Decent but not very well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after a nice run. Appearance is a cloudy amber gold with a small white head. Aroma is rich in dirty hops, smells 'dank'. Taste is pretty good, more hoppy than other IPA's out there. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet, malty and balanced. Earthy, some breadiness, piney some bitterness at the finish. A solid IPA in the Midwestern style.
