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. Pours a slightly cloudy Golden Amber with about 3/4 of a finger worth of white head. Piney Hops aroma at first, which fades into a more floral hop aroma as the head dissappates. Carbonated Hoppy bitter flavor up front, followed by a mild but noticeable floral hop flavor, with a balanced hoppy bitter finish. Bitterness fades away and leaves you with a nice floral taste that lingers till your next sip. I feel that this is a well balanced IPA, not too much or too little of any one thing. Very drinkable.

beer_rookie (360) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Pours a hazy orange color. About two fingers eggshell colored rocky pillowy head. Excellent retention, excellent lacing.

Aroma is wet cardboard, tangerine and maybe also orange zest. Thereís good piney hops in there.

Taste is clean. Very smooth to start, then comes bitter. Itís bready, and also sweet. Itís resiny and citrusy. Malty and sweet.

Mouthfeel is medium full. Itís dry. Itís smooth and somewhat creamy. Well balanced all around.

Overall, itís great. I would recommend this, and I would certainly buy this again. Not much to say about it. If you see it buy it!

tfontana (606) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle pour from Craft Beer Cellar, Clayton. Appearance is hazy dark yellow/light brown, with 1/2 finger-width white head with poor retention, trace lacing. Aroma is floral, tropical fruit, citrus over malt base. Taste is as aroma with a bit more citrus and fruit than aroma. Palate is medium bodied with creamy, foamy texture, average carbonation with balanced sweet floral hoppy/malt. Overall, a solid beer all around with nice flavors to be sure, but not earth shattering.

olenickj (59) - Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2016
On tap at local bar. Canít believe it took me so long to give it a rating since I drink this all the time. Smells semi-sweet with strong floral note and a hint of citrus. Deep gold in color with a thin white head. Mild to strong hop bitterness, mostly floral in flavor but not over powering. Full bodied and a nice long finish. Always amazed at how good, refreshing and well balanced this is.

On tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn on 8th July 2016. Amber with decaying off-white foam and initial lacing. Zesty hoppiness and peel in aroma. Bitter orange peel, and grapefruit citrus in-mouth. A tangy citric finish. Zingy mouthfeel and a fair amount of body.
