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.

Bottle from an American friend. Instant attack of hops on the nose from the moment of opening. Beautiful straw color with persistent light white head. Intensely bitter without tons of caramel sweetness on the back like some IPAs get. This is a quintessential American craft IPA. Canít go wrong with this if looking for the style. Does not taste of its abv, another indication of balance. Aromas of pine, dank pineapple and light citrus.

When drank fairly fresh, this IPA can burst with flavor against the best of them. I've definitely come to appreciate it more and more over time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Almost always this is a great IPA. Tremendous aroma and initial taste. On occasion it has seemed bitter and with an after taste, but usually a very solid IPA.

jonnyguns (1002) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2014
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 (551) - 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.

Maltser85 (292) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 17, 2014
I have a hard time rating this beer. I donít 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 (249) - 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.
