3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At the Michigan Beer Fest - To cold, after warming found this to be a very pleasant brew. Nice malt/hop balance with a very good mouth feel. Not a fruity as I would like, but a very good beer.
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a fairly dark burnt orange color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated immediately. Left some speckled lace.
The aroma had some musty old grass, light citrus pulp, piney notes, and an earthy sort dried malt.
The flavor had that dried earthy malt up front with some mineral notes and the musty old grass. Faint breadiness. All seemed to blend in the aftertaste and finish.
The feel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Decent carbonation and an ABV that felt right.
Overall, a bit different for me in the IPA category, not sure if I would come back to. Maybe. Msdrbeat (785) - East Lansing, USA - FEB 11, 2017
On tap at Arbor Brewing. Lots of pine. Smooth wth little to no carbonation. Bitter bite through end. cheap (6074) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Undoubtedly one of the most bitter IPA I have ever tasted. From a bottle, this stuff wanders into the imperial IPA territory without apologies. Rude, crude rototilling beer that that is terribly on style. Nothing else can be said. If you like IPA, flip my numbers because you need to try this, whew. My computer didn’t even like it, when I spilled this on the keyboard it gave me a bright screen of death and died. rosenbergh (11793) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
12 oz bottle. (Meijer) Kalamazoo, MI.johnnymusky (1004) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Hazy red golden color with a small light tan head.
Candies, carambola, some melon and sweetness in the aroma.
The flavor is a battle of fruity sweetness and harsh bitterness. Grapefruit, caramel and bitterness are the dominating elements in the aftertaste.
Bottle from brad...wife drank this one....she is a complete hop head...says this is a bit malty...i shall try and rate soon.

On tap at the Arbor Corner Brew in Ypsilanti, MI. Hazy copper pour with a small white head. Aroma and taste are a malty floral hop mix. Unique and very nice. Taste is nicely sweet. Medium full mouthfeel. drfabulous (8563) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2015
12 ounce bottle thanks to Donnie. Dark for IPA. Malty with some pine but mostly musty. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2015
4oz on tap at the Corner Brew. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good thicker sheet of lace. Bready malt, cereal, some citrusy hop, bit of floral. Medium-plus body. Kind of a creamy mouthfeel. Lighter carbonation. Mild slick. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. An OK IPA. Definitely on the sweeter, maltier side.

A bit malty for as high as the ibu rating was. Really enjoyed the mouth feel of this beer. Good beer. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a golden copper with one finger of off white head. Aroma is pine with some citrus. Nice malt backbone. Flavor is piney and malty. Clean, smoother finish. Really nice IPA.
