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.

On Tap @ The Griffin in Battle Creek. Pours amber/auburn clear with a nice head and lacing. Hop flavor is very well balanced mix of bitterness and mild sweetness. not a heavy IPA - it has earthy flavors which don’t overpower, pine flavor and citrus. The aftertaste lingers for a while, and is memorable. Smooth with minimal carbonation.

Bottle:Cloudy gold color with a large fluffy off-white head that lasts all the way to the end. A good majority of sticky lacing is pasted to the inside of the glass as well. Typical hoppy aromas of juniper, pine and citrus. The tastes shows sweet floral notes followed by citrus rind bitterness. It is a smooth drink and a bit thin for an IPA, but quite classic for the style. Loved it! Thanks Santa.

Not a bad little IPA pours and smells like you would expect. It even has all the flavor of a decent IPA mouthfeel is a little thin. Good stuff and I will buy again but not amazing.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Good deep orange body with a large frothy off-white head. Aroma is of pine, citrus, with light vanilla overtones. Flavor is excellent for an IPA, hoppy and bitter, with a nice malt compliment. Excellent springy ending. Big thanks to brentfeesh for sending this to me as part of his "recovery" plan. =)

Hazy gold colour, insane amounts of pine aroma. Hoppy! Very nice. Clean, crisp, deliciously bitter. I approve.

I was shocked when I noticed I had not rated this one - I’ve had many since I’ve been rating. Pours hazy amber with a nice sized white head with nice lacing. Hops hit hard on the aroma - lots of citrus and floral qualities. Malt is apparent to give some balance. Fuller body than most IPAs and a good deal of frothy smooth carbonation. Starts off with a huge amount of floral hops and rich malt to balance them. Bits of woody hops are in the mix also. Then comes a prickly pinecone sensation from the carbonation and citrus / piney hop aspect. Excellent IPA.

Golden amber appearance with slight head retention and attractive lacing. Large nose, showing floral notes and sweet hops. Full crisp mouthfeel, well-balanced hop profile, grapefruit and minerals, ending in a medium, clean finish. Very enjoyable IPA.

Hazy golden IPA with a thick creamy white head. Floral C-hops with nutty maderized malt in aroma. In mouth, a fragrant IPA with earthy citrus, a biscuitty malt, light mint notes, lingering hops covering the mouth. A very nice IPA from a trade with Piscator, Nov. 2005.

I love this ipa. i can always buy and never be disappointed. Aroma is west coast hop with some pale malt underneath. Flavor is beautiful sweet citrus, very orange. Finish is a nice dry bitterness. There are no holes in this taste solid all the way. Everything i want in a base IPA.
