COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Truly the next stage of evolution in lager. The biggest and burliest of our IPLs, this mutant high gravity brew is literally three times the Gulo Gulo recipe! We had to make a few changes to fit all the malt in our brew house and get a little creative with our hopping to get it all in there but man is it worth the effort. Gulo Cubed, despite the massive amount hops, actually drinks even more smoothly than the original Gulo Gulo thanks to the extra grain. In the end we get a huge, hoppy lager up to its fangs in flavor.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of grass with a touch of pine and a light crisp grain backing. Flavor has resin and sweet grains throughout with underlying caramel and pine.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of huge candied orange, citrus, grapefruit, and caramel. It’s a hazy orangish-brown with a small beige head. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy candied orange and caramel. The finish has has moderate pine, grapefruit, and wood. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, it’s like a IIPA that has too much caramel.

tectactoe (2348) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2014 Tap @ Wolverine State: Bright, beaming copper body with rusty amber outlining the edges. The beige head is reduced to a thin collar in just moments. Gushing aroma of candied grapefruit & orange flesh sprinkled with freshly cut grass. Nice citrus element with some honey-like sweetness & a touch of malt that’s just shy of caramel. Smells like a fruit smoothie. Flavor of sugar coated grapefruit rinds with a light, fleshy sweetness traveling beneath it. It’s got that dextrose, almost saccharine sweetness to it, but it stops just shy of being overbearing or cloying. Balanced nicely by the abundance of pine & bitter citrus peel flavors. Back-end has more of a tropical side, too, with some pineapple & tangerine zest coming into play. A bit of caramel malt with a lingering flavor of toffee & grapefruit candy in the finish. Somewhat sticky body. Based on other reviews, I’m am shocked at how much I enjoyed this. Perhaps they perfected the recipe? Really, really good stuff.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2013
On tap at the Wolverine tasting room. Poured a golden color with a small sized head. Citrus, some fruitiness, and some grassy/floral hops. Overall the alcohol well hidden.

umich03jm (2183) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Sample draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber/gold color with a small head that fades to a ring and leaves nice webbing. Aroma is very dank and sweet citrus fruit. Getting oranges, grapefruit, apples, and pineapple. Taste is juicy citrus fruit but there a weird off-flavor. No idea how to describe it, I guess you could call it chemical like the last reviewer. Bitter finish. Thick and a bit syrupy. Great aroma, not a great taste.

artmcd8 (1801) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Slight hoppy aroma. Tastes slightly sweet and syrupy with a chemical like aftertaste. Not too bitter. Really not well incorporated.
