Tap. Pours golden brown with no head or lacing. Average IPA. Well balanced but not anything special ----Hophaze out

Tap. Darkish gold. Good hop presence with more floral and citrus notes at front of sip. Pretty good!

Cloudy orange with a sticky, thin white head. Nose is very light, of grapefruit. Palate is a little thin, with grapefruit and resin flavors. Just above average.

Ah memories. An average IPA Iíve had many times in the Motor City. But what do I remember? It was one of a few on tap at the time...

While my pint was not as frothy and heady as Hennes', it was as describes and went very well with aged dill cheese. Pairing the beer with a nice food offering seems to excuse this beer for not being a full bodied, exciting IPA. Some hops were there, and that made it alright.

This brewery is also a dairy and makes excellent cheeses. On top of that, it is connected to Michigan Brew Works across the parking lot. But these complex business relations arenít reflected in the rather simple brews. This IPA is a case in point: very smooth and mild, creamy even, with the hops settled way back in all the lightness. It wonít seem to special to any hopheads, but itís a good brew to introduce the folks of this Detroit neighborhood to the almighty hop. I should note, too, that this is a beautiful beer - deep golden with a huge frothy head.
