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: JUN 24, 2008 Bottle: pours a cloudy orange with a thin, lasting head, hoppy aroma with some citrus, taste is quite hoppy and slightly bitter. Very nice IPA. I’ll buy it again.

draft. clear orange gold with moderate fluffy white head. floral hop aroma. solid citrus taste - grapefruit flavor with a light/moderate bitter. crisp finish, sugar levels are in good check. great carbation as well. this one is just perfectly balanced. all the elements are distinct but not overbearing. i think many breweries think that if you hop the hell out of it, it will automatically be a good ipa. (the sebago i just tried is a good example). this guy sets the bar for ipa’s imo. is goot. belly goot.

Bartzilla’s Death Metal Beer Day June 07. Shared with Bartzilla, Naven, WeeHeavySD and others. 12oz bottle. Deep golden brew with a floral hoppy aroma. Flavor is sweetish with a clean hoppy finish.

Draft...light, cloudy presentation with fair head, this ale packs a mighty hop punch with an herbal aftertaste which reminds me of oregano or basil. The finish is thick and velvety. I liked this beer much more on draft than out of the bottle for some reason.

Poured a real hazy orange and real nice fluffy head. Great citrus hop aroma. Real nice hop flavor and some malt comes through to balance it out a little bit. This is a great beer!!!

HopDevil1979 (117) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2007
A tasty beer, but I’m stunned by the 99 overall rating. Pours hazy, unfiltered and light, light amber, huge head. Ultra hoppy, fruity, sweet aroma. Flavor is good, but faint and watery. The palate is excellent, as the light flavor instantly disappears after a swig, nothing lingers. I’d like an Imperial version of this beer.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2007
Pours a cloudy orange with a small foamy head. Aroma is fruity & sweet but more than balanced by pungent floral hops. The taste is wonderful - medium crystal malt in such a quantity as to give great character and balance to the excellent hopping - very doughy and heavy but not cloyingly sweet. This has a great body, thin but not too thin, and decent carb. I have never tasted such a balanced, full-bodied IPA.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a golden-amberish hue with a nice, frothy white head. Floral undertones hit the nose right from the start. Perfect balance of malt and hops make this one to remember.

Nice murky orange-amber pour, with a foamy head that leaves pillow lace. Beautiful mixture of citrus and floral notes in the nose. Well done... wonderfully hopped from beginning to end, without overtaking any of the other portions of the brew. Nice orange peel and grapefruit essence in the citrus dept. Very quaffable, as the citrus and malt combine for a perfectly round and smooth mouthfeel. Pine resin lingers in the finish, peppering the back of the mouth with a decent IBU. Again, the drinkability is very much the biggest "pro" of this brew. IPA’s are my fave (as are doubles and impy’s), and this one doesn’t disappoint. ABV doesn’t particularly show... possibly in the peppery aftereffects of the finish, there shines a note or two of alcohol, but well-integrated.
