DrSilverworm (8548) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Taste on tap during Michigan Summer Beer Fest. Clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some loose bits of lace. Moderate-plus bitter taste, moderate sweet. Good citrusy, earthy, floral hop. Moderate caramel malt. More of a balanced IPA, regarding hop/malt. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick. A decent IPA. Kind of a bigger sweet malt to it.

SpongeRuiner (932) - Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2015
On tap at Petes Place. Pours a dull orange color with a nice thick off white head that settles into an oily look. A citrus hopped aroma. A creamy feel at first. With a nice mellow citrus. A piney fresh after taste that lingers nicely on the mouth. A huge wall of lacing. Overall a nice not overpowering ipa. Good stuff.

Pailhead (5675) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate moderate-heavy grapefruit with pine, light citrus, and a hint of toast. It’s a transparent amber with a small white head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. There are some thin rings left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a a quick dose of citrus and a hint of toasted notes. The finish has moderate-heavy grapefruit and light pine. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Draft - Sweet grapefruit and caramel. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Grapefruit and a pithy bitterness with a caramel backbone. Decent IPA.
