This ground-breaking style combines the essential ingredients and hopping methods used to create a world-class I.P.A. Then using our expert lagering techniques and house lager yeast we created an instant favorite among the existing and steadily growing number of “hop-heads” and craft “lager-heads” in the beer world today. Gulo Gulo I.P.L. is hopped with Cascade, Chinook, Columbus, Warrior and Pilgrim hops. It is dry-hopped once in the fermenter and then a second time with whole-cone Cascade hops before packaging.

Onslow (1410) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear amber brew with tan head that settles quickly. Good lacing. Aroma of of earthy resin leavened with lighter citrus, tart fruit and spice. Agile with some earthy cheesy notes. Taste starts with a clearly lager malt base with emerging resin and pine. Lighter hops notes emerge at the end to finish with a crisp but hoppy finish. Typically I am not a fan of IPL’s but this one stands out.

On tap. It’s a lightly hazy dark golden beer topped by a small off-white head. The aroma is peachy and tropical fruity, with hints of pale malts in the back. It has a soft bitterness on the palate, it’s full bodied and softly carbonated, with a light malty touch as a backdrop for the fruity hops. Lasting fruity and light bitter finish. Quite nice this one. Easy drinkable and tasteful. 150615

Well Honesty a little too strong in a kind of syrupy way. Kind of chafy. Not terrible. Just a solid IPL...

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tap @ Wolverine State: Light copper color with good clarity, almost no haze at all. Soapy, eggshell cap fades quickly but foams up nicely when the glass is swirled. Aroma is earthy, deep-rooted with grassy & muddled hops. Semi-pungent, edging on piney without being abrasive. Biscuit malts, light caramel, & some faint perfume. Flavor is balanced nicely, too. Shows more of a citric side to the hops. Semisweet caramel malt, orange rind, grapefruit, moderately pungent hop oil, freshly cut grass, & herbaceous spice. Pine & bitter citrus in the finish with a bit of leftover caramel & toasted malts. Crisp, snappy mouth feel, relatively light bodied & wet. Pretty nice.

Going to assume this was an old bottle. Poured a dark golden color with a white head. Aroma was of stale hips, grass and caramel. Flavor similar, weirdly bitter and lightly vegetables.
