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.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 Draught @ Akkurat, Stockholm

Originally rated on 05.10.2012 - Pours dark orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma of fruity hops, hints of caramel malts, lemon and citrus. Taste is quite malty with hints of fruity but a bit aged hops, citrus, caramel and grass. Finish is bitter and slightly hoppy with hints of caramely malts. Unfortunately this probably wasn’t very fresh, feels a bit unbalanced. Would like to try this from a fresh bottle.

Re-rated on 9.5.2013 @ Super IPA Tasting, 355ml bottle from cp45, thanks! Bottled 03/05/13. Not that different from the draught version. Still quite malty, grainy and not that fruity or fresh. A bit disappointing. 10 years ago this would have been something special, but now it’s just another generic IPA.

Draft. Incredible floral hop aroma. The taste adds grapefruit with a vanilla malt finish to add perfect balance. I'm glad I got to try this. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: caramel, toast, floral, leather, woody Appearance: amber Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness Palate: medium body, average carbonation, long finish Overall: 19 out of 20; Simply my favorite IPA... and it doesn’t go all IPA’ish on me. A real beer; unique enough to command the score its given.

Fra fad, på Blind Tiger, New York. Orangegylden, næsten klar. lille hvidt skum. Lækker humlenæse med masser af grønt gran. Blodappelsin og grape. Karamel, let toast. Bitter, mundrensende finish. God balance. Virkelig god IPA

12 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Pale, clear amber with a nice white head that laces the glass perfectly. Pine and citrus on the nose and follows through to the palate. The bitterness is remarkably smooth and the finish is dry. Finishes so clean. One of the best ipa’s hands down!

Nsanders (424) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2014
Tap at Blue Door Pub. Pineapple brown sugar, and caramel. Very sweet upfront with a resiny tropical bitter finish. Medium body with sticky feel. Nice sweet and fruity pale.

hman43 (222) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2014
Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, plenty of hops, and floral. Light carbonation, golden in color, the head clings, and is slightly off white and well formed. It has citrus flavors, grapefruit, maybe rind, floral hops flavoring. It doesn’t have the bitter bite that a lot of IPA;s have, which is different. The ingredients work well together.

Bue à la pression. Parfaitement équilibrée, belle rondeur dans l’ensemble. L’amertume vient seulement sur la fin. Excellent.
