Clear golden and copper coloured body with a large, four centimetre tall off-white head that fades very quickly. Aroma of fresh grassy and herbal hops with a light grainy and malt note. Light-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavour with a light malt flavour, some subdued hay and assertive bitter flavours and ending with a dry flavour without much complexity. Aftertaste shows a touch of bright hops, some subdued malt and yeast flavours and a dry grassy and hay flavour that doesn’t add much to the finish. Overall, a decent beer at best with not much flavour and a subdued taste that has some noticeable hops and dryness, but that’s about it - fairly pale and bland. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 24-July-2015 for US$1,99 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 15-January-2017; Sampling this in honor of both of my parents, who were students in Ypsilanti (Eastern Michigan) once upon a time. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 22, 2016
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Slightly hazy medium amber with lots of ascending bubbles, fluffy off-white 4" head that doesn’t settle, fluffs of lace. Taste is past-date beer. Odd malt taste, light hops, funky finish that leaves a bad metallic taste in the mouth. Nope. Msdrbeat (775) - East Lansing, USA - SEP 21, 2016
On tap at Hopcat. Fruity and juicy aroma. A crisp IPA with not over bitterness.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Ann Arbor Eisenhower, 3/23/16. Hazy brown, large foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of tart citrus and wet cat. Weird. The taste is earth, citrus, lime, caramel malt. Mild bandaid. High carbonation. I do not think this is what they envisioned.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of juicy citrus hops and moderate malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale ale style. All around good complexity and balance of juicy citrus hops and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering. rocbyter (2118) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2015
