COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 It’s already been said 737 times or so but here it is. A gorgeous orange color with a massively beautiful white head that lasts throughout the drankin’ experience. Wonderful floral hop aroma with hints of pine. Deliciously bitter with tons of fresh green hop tastes. The thing about this beer is that it slowly becomes delicious liquid adult candy as it warms. I get a noticeable candy orange taste in the background that reminds me of orange Pez candy. The sweet tangy citrus flavors totally work with the incredible bitterness to create a unique IPA experience. Great stuff.

Thanks to iowaherkeye for this one. Poured a cloudy orange body with a fairly large head and decent lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with loads of fruit, mostly grapefruit. Also some spicy hops too. Flavor is the same, good bitterness and malt backbone... balanced well. Nice, one of the best IPAs out there.

Bottle, poured almost orange with a thick coarse head. Floral aroma. Taste was of citrusy, spicy hops and an almost sweet malt backbone. Very good beer.

Bottle from? I think The_Epeeist. Cloudy golden with pretty good head....Nice malty and spicy/floral hop aroma with a little bit of alcohol sweetness. The hops in this are almost unlike any other IPA I’ve ever had...big floral hop taste. Similar to the Jasmine IPA by Elysian, but...nothing but hops in here, didn’t need any jasmine to get this taste. Pretty good thickness. Not too alcoholic, very driankable. I could have a few of these, and would love to.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2006
This was a fine beer. Aroma was fruity. The taste was smooth and the hop taste was of mild hops and creamy malts. Slightly thin with a mellow finish.

Very hoppy, lots of citrus and spicey pine, but still very smooth. Slight chewy sweetness in the finish. AN excellent IPA for sure.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Nice cloudy orange pour with a lasting white head. Very flowery aroma with a bit of bready malt. Citrus hops are more evident in the taste and there is a nice bitterness that lasts through the entire tasting experience. This is very light on the palette but has a great depth of flavor. The malt does back up the hopping quite well and there is a lot to love in this as a complex and flavorful session type beer. Exceptional. I really enjoyed the long finish.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Pours to a nice hazy-burnt orange color. Aroma is a mixture of flowers, citrus, and light pine. Nice citrusy hop flavor with fine malt taste for balance makes this a very good IPA. Finish and aftertaste superb. One of my new favorites.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2006
Big offwhite coarse-ish head over hazy orange body with ongoing carbonation. Deep, sweet, cookie-like malty aroma with hop notes so harmoniously blended I can’t tell what the hops are like. Taste is deep, spicy malts with a deep, bitter resiny hop background. Peas, and grass as well. Bitter, resiny aftertaste. Very good, but slightly lacking in complexity. If they added just a little to this it would be an extraordinary beer. As a session beer this would be fantastic. (0.355l bottle, thanks to gr0ve.)

Bottle. Poured a clear deep gold/orage with a thick off-white head. A fruity citrus character dominates a hoppy nose. A mouth filling rush of hops at first quickly overtaken by a fruity citric body with hints of grapefruit, orange, and lemon that add a touch of sweetness make this very full and smooth beer excellent.
