India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

Scrapersnbeer's rating

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2013
This beer is locally famous in the midwest so on my recent trip I made a point of having a couple. That being said, this is one of the best IPAís out there. Aroma is a mix of floral and fruity elements, which a rindy grapefuit being predominant. The appearance is what youíd expect from mid strength IPA. Tastes very bitter in a flavor filled hop-chewing kind of way, while Iíd describe the body and chewy and crisp at once. Not a beer you can session with. Had two with St. Patrickís brunch before switching to porters, which was a great but foolhardy decision.

Great pine driven bitterness and aromatics with solid malt backbone. Highly drinkable.

googleimage83 (108) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2017
Pours a clear yellow orange, gigantic pillow of a head. Huge fruit on the nose - pineapple, orange, more orange; nice dose of pine, bready malts and spicy hops to balance it out. Taste is balanced and smooth - orange and grapefruit off the start, herbal hoppy middle, short bready finish. Persistent but pleasant citrus hop presence throughout. This is a great beer.

Draft. Pours a medium well retained, off white head, over very slightly hazy, ambre (SRM 8) body........nose is light pin, resin, heavy fruits with grapefruit dominating, mild cracker, hints of bread, from the malts, balance to the hops.......taste is lightly floral honey sweet, with mild tones of toffee/caramel, moderate bread, finishing with pine, resin, citrus primarily grapefruit, moderate to mild bitterness, balance slightly to the hops......mouth feel, moderate body, mild alcohol, medium carbonation. This is a quite typical and classic style of the current type IPA. BJCP 8/3/16/4/7

Reid (2419) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2017
12 oz single purchased from Lifesource in Salem OR $2 Pours the typical American IPA colour of burnt orange with a small cream coloured head. Nice lace down the glass. Nice sweet citrus and soft spruce type hop aromas..floral aspects also. Some hay like malts..pretty complex aromas. Nice piney bitter orange zest taste.. small amount of caramel malts.then more hop bitterness. Very good mouth feel with generous carbonation it compliments the buzzing bitterness well. A very nice IPA. A classic.

Butelka. Aromat intensywny, chmielowy. Mango, mandarynka. W smaku przejrzałe owoce, dominują mango, papaja. Goryczka średnia, w punkt. Wysycenie średnie. Pijalność ekstremalnie wysoka. Można to piwo pochłonąć w kilka sekund. Alkohol tak jakby go nie było.

Ciężko po etykiecie zorientować się kiedy zabutelkowali piwo lub do kiedy jest data ważności. Nie mniej jednak jak na moje doświadczenie nie jest to piwo najświeższej jakości.

(12oz bottle) AROMA: fresh hop nose, citrus peel, pine bark, herbaceous. APPEARANCE: medium amber, creamy white head, decent visible carbonation, just a little unclear. TASTE: grain, roasted malt, tobacco, soy sauce, tannin, grape seed/skin, some herb and coriander, solid hop finish. PALATE: medium body, crisp up front, a little frizz, slightly oily, moderately long dry finish. OVERALL: yummy beer. Lots of hoppiness without being only about the hops, drinkable, balanced.
