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.

Extra given to me by MarkWise, thanks very much for the big package. Pour was a typical light sunlight/amber with tufts of uneven white foams. Small bubbles cackle over the honey tea body. Smell is Hoppy, but it’s definitely put in a sweet background context. Taste is a hop flavor seasoning more than bitterness with a big sweet tea bread malt character. Light brioche, some sugary bread off set by a hard candy/gummy hop flavor. Really nice balance, and definitely consistent with that malty forward IPA I associate with the midwest.

justsayswell (133) - Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Brassy pour. Rocky beige head. Lots of lacing. Floral and pine in the nose. Some earthy pale malt. Medium mouthfeel. Taste is a wonderful symphony of spicy hops and toasty malt in constant interplay. A little bitter pineapple. Fresh country bread. Some piney overtones. Finishes perfectly balanced between malty and hoppy. The alcohol is well hidden. Wonderfully constructed IPA.

OnTheTrail (52) - Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Grassy aromas, flavor hoppy, more citrusy, but not unpleasant. I am new to IPA’s and while this has not turned me into a hophead, it is certainly a beer I would buy again.

adasko (862) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Bardzo bardzo delikatny świeżutki aromat owoców tropikalnych. Piwo jest złote, mętne, kiepska piana, świetny lacing. W smaku też super świeże, orzeźwiajace, czyste, prawie wytrawne. Bardzo bardzo pijalne, goryczka średnia. Odczucie jak przy leciutkim APA, totalnie nie czuć alkoholu. Sprawia wrażenie 12 Plato.

Tap pour at Geoffreys. Nice pour of clear amber with decent white head. Sweetly scented with citrus dominating. Taste is more pineapple than grapefruit with hints of hops. Aftertaste bitterness quickly subsides. Good IPA.

Aroma is of pineapple juice, bubblegum, maybe some hay. Taste is of bitter hops initially, then juicy citrus, and finally a well balanced crackery malt. An effervescent tingle lightly shocks my taste buds with each sip.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Great IPA. Inviting light orange body with slight head. Nose is hops, floral. Taste lots of hops but well balanced. Bitter texture. Warms in the finish. Well done!

shoulderbroken (2570) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2015
Tap at Belmont Station, I think. Malty, quite soft, bitterness is subdued. Aroma is fruity, light pink grapefruit. Something almost a little sweet in the taste. A caress rather than a slap.
