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.

Pours a light yellowish brown with a small, white head that lingers. Aroma is strong and hoppy, with herbs. Parsley and grass, smells delicious. The flavor is a lot more subdued, but still very hoppy, with grapefruit and orange at the front. There’s some earthy herbal flavor as sips go through, and the beer finishes with more grapefruity bitterness. This brew is spectacular. Pungent, hoppy aroma, and smooth, drinkable flavor.

This Ale from western Michigan is currently my favorite beer. It has a brilliantly sharp floral flavor that is simple but perfect. It’s fruity but dry and although I love it, I’d never describe it as "well balanced."

Slightly hazy, orange color, big floral and citrus aroma, not extremely bitter for an IPA but more floral and citrusy, grapefruit. Well balandce, Very drinkable.

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Nice clear amber color with a thick and tall white head. Aroma is of green hops, fruit, honey, and malt. The taste is wonderful. Clean, crisp, and somewhat light taste that combines hops, pine, malt, and lemon. Somewhat bubbly or carbonated in the mouth, it tingles all the way down. It finishes very clean. A very enjoyable IPA.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2006
(Bottle) Pours clear amber. Piny and floral, green hops in aroma with some notes of fruits and strawberry jam. Rasin. Some malty sweetness. Fresh, clean, crispy flavour with pine and some apricot. Light raisiny bitter ending. Light to medium body. A more malty, compact body would make this a perfect IPA.

GoBlue (104) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Deep gold to bright orange in color with thick, lasting white head, very cloudy if you aren’t careful to hold back the yeast in this bottle conditioned beer. Vibrant citrus aroma with just a hint of malt. Flavor explodes with citrus; lemons and oranges predominate with just a touch of grapefruit. Spicy undertones with malt to balance, slightly sweer without being cloying. Medium bodied with a refreshing carbonation bite. Just a great, great example of what an American IPA should be.

IrishBoy (3887) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle from Iowaherkeye; Thanks Joey; Nose of citrus, hops, some caramel malt, and a little pineyness; hazy amber-orange with a big glass-lacing, orange-tinged head that lasts pretty long.flavor is mostly hops, with a little caramel that balances it, in the light to medium body, the hops lasting to a nice finish.

Superb tangerine color with a yeasty white head, two fingers. Nice lacing as the head subsided slightly. As other reviewers mentioned it has a very good balance of malt and hop flavors for a hoppy IPA. Citrusy aroma and a nice amount of similar hop flavor with solid malt backbone. Great flavor and finish that does not get dulled after a few bottles.
