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.

novice101 (298) - - JUN 21, 2014
Pours hazy orange with a large white head, smells of hops lot of hop, citrus and pinny with some small hint of tropical fruits. Taste is dominated by hop loads of citrus/piny flavors followed by some malt balance, not overly dry in the finish

Look: pours a hazy amber color. Small white head. Leaves thick lacing. Smell: sweetness. Apricot and lemons, oranges. Taste: definite bitterness. Hop forward. Pine. Pepper. Feel: leaves a film on your mouth. Good carbonation. Overall: good summer beer. Need to be careful of the abv, doesn't taste like 7%. First drank: home April 2014

Ataraxia (352) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Mildly hazy, amber color, fluffy off-white head. Caramel malt, pine resin, light grapefruit, hay, and floral aroma. Hint of sweetness initially, then dried citrus peel bitterness. Smooth, average carb, and heavier than it needs to be from the maltiness. Lingering bitter finish.

sjohnny (361) - - JUN 15, 2014
Citrus and light tropical fruit aroma. Pours a very cloudy almost opaque honey gold with a thick long lasting white head that coats the glass in lacing as it goes. Earthy, sweet, fruity, malty. Medium bodied with a slippery smooth polished stone mouthfeel. Lots of grapefruit with a little hint of resin. A crisp bitterness on the finish. This is a pretty decent beer

kerenmk (2199) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer and Beyond shop. Hazy orange with white ring. Floral and a little baby barf aroma, a little floral-honey sweetness with soft bitterness. Medium body, long finish. Bottle’s a little old.

screigh (444) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a very hazy copper color. This white head that lasts the entire beer with lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is earthy and musty. A sweet flavor that seems to be a bit "juicy". Bitterness is subdued with a hint of dirt in the finish.

nothingbutIPAs (4) - Hillsborough, USA - JUN 13, 2014 does not count
This IPA is about as good as it gets. This and Ballast Point Sculpin are the top 2 single IPAs IMO. taste and smell are fantastic. can’t say anything negative about this one. If you get the chance to try do so, if you are a hophead you will not be disappointed.

kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Amber color with creamy looking off white head. Aroma is tropical fruit; mango, pineapple. Taste is bitter up front with some pine and citrus notes. Slick mouth feel. Overall a well balanced, easy drinking IPA.

ljthiessen (325) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy, golden orange pour with an off-white head. Big fruity, zesty aroma, with orange, lemon and some fruity malt sweetness. Flavour has a stiff bitterness, but offset by nice underlying fruity malt. A tasty blend of citrus flavours both sweet and bitter, with more grapefruit in the flavour than the aroma. A deliciously tasty and wonderfully complex IPA, but I could do with just a touch less bitterness to let the sweet notes shine a bit more. Personal preference probably.

mjg74 (2490) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle from World Market. Very hazy orange/reddish in color. Nice hop nose of grapefruit with a good deal of sweetness as well. Good hops up front followed by grapefruit peel/mineral dryness. Some maltiness for balance. Very drinkable IPA.
