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.

Sean's Uncle Jim dotes on this stuff. His hopheadedness accompanies his love of very hot sauces and I think that might be the way to enjoy this brew, strength to strength. By itself it bitters my tongue to parchment. A kinder gentler torture due to the mouthfeel ...

Draught at Rattle n Hum. Pours a clear orange with firm white head. Nose shows tropical fruit, some pine and maybe some caramel. Taste is very approachable. Orange, pine and tropical fruit dominate with a dry bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange/gold color, no significant head. Herb with floral and citrus hops. Higher carbonation level-can feel it on the lips. A bit heavy.

elbernays (544) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle at home from Kings supermarket orlando. Pours copper with white head. Peach, citrus nose. Flavour is caramel malts with citrus, peach bitter finish. Lovely balance, low carbonation. Very drinkable. Lasting fruit aftertaste. Great IPA.

ElCapitan22 (79) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Pours a solid gold color. Has minimal head retention. Tastes slightly sweet and of floral hops. Have had this before and it has tasted different each time. A good beer, but not a memorable one.

I have a hard time rating this beer. I don’t know why, but everytime I try it, it tastes different to me. Nice copper colored beer with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, slight citrus and pine. Sweet malts. Floral notes as well. Taste is more of the same with more floral hops and pine asserting itself. Finish has a decent lingering bitterness. Medium body.

Bork (241) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Fantastic aroma of piney, citrusy hops but the taste does not quite reach as high and the mouthfeel has an unpleasant foaminess to it. Still a very good brew but it could have been better.

ChrisSc (199) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 12, 2014
12 oz bottle into tulip. Minneapolis Appearance: Copper/orange in Color. Hazy. Lots of while lacing. Aroma: Strong hoppiness. Floral and citrusy, somewhat piney. Hops are very balanced. Malty backbone. Taste: Mildy sweet and bitter upfront, sweetness fades to leave a pleasant, and not overwhelming bitterness in the finish. Palate: Medium/full body. Thick texture. Fading bitter finish. Overall: A really well balanced IPA. The hops are balanced and approachable. Not showy. A very nice beer.

asheft (2544) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2014
On tap. Strong caramel malt aroma with fresh pine and strawberry hops. Hazy amber under white wisps and a thin white collar. Potent hops flavour that is an interesting mix of pine, grapefruit and minty, woody (Northern Brewer?). Spicy melanoidin malt and faint watermelon accents. Assertive bitterness is not overboard. Medium body, medium carbonation, lingering bitterness.
